X Factor 2011: Tulisa says Cheryl Cole won't be returning!

Cheryl Cole

New X Factor judge Tulisa has said there's no way she'll be letting Cheryl Cole return to kick her off the show, declaring she'll be sitting behind the judges' desk on the final night later this year at Wembley.

Speaking to The Sun yesterday, Tulisa insisted: "I can 100 per cent reassure fans I'll be sitting in that judge's chair in the final. Cheryl and I talk and laugh at the rumours about her. We've sat down and had the conversation at her birthday party.

"People are going to make up rumour after rumour. It's been intense."

On her friendship with Cheryl, she added: "I've not spoken to her for a bit because she's been in LA. But we'll meet when she gets back. We are cool."

Tulisa also confessed she'd love to stay as a judge on the show for years to come: "I'd like to come back next year and the year after," she explained.

Meanwhile the feisty N-Dubz judge revealed she wouldn't be trying to fight fellow judge Kelly Rowland for attention when the live shows kick off next month, saying: "I only care about winning. Fashion? Turn the spotlight on Gary and Louis. They should come out one week in dresses!"

But she did admit: "If you're on TV in front of 12 million people, you want to look nice."

The X Factor continues tonight at 7:45PM on ITV1.
