X Factor 2012: Tulisa and Nicole 'barely speak to each other'

X Factor 2012 panel

It seems that X Factor judges Tulisa and Nicole Scherzinger haven't hit it off on the show, reportedly barely speaking to one another.

Hunky Gary Barlow even moved from his spot on the end of the judges' desk to sit between the two girls for bootcamp last week, in a bid to improve the chemistry of the line up.

The Daily Star Sunday report that Tulisa and new judge Nicole barely speak to each other on the show, with supposed insiders claiming the pair aren't exactly pals!

“It’s no secret that Tulisa and Nicole aren’t the best of friends," one source revealed.

They explained to the tabloid this morning: “They barely spoke to each other despite being sat next to one another on the panel so the decision was made to split them up.

“Both wanted to be next to Gary though, so in the end he was the one who moved to try to keep everyone happy.”

The new series of [cat]The X Factor[/cat] hits screens later this year on ITV1.
