Darryl Dishes: Is Tulisa returning to The X Factor 2015?

The Hits Morning Show presenter, and MP!’s resident pop star pal Darryl Morris is back with more exclusive goss only on MP!. This time he asked what we we were all thinking, is Tulisa coming back to The X Factor 2015 judging panel? 

Over the past twelve months, saying the name Tulisa has brought up images of court cases, drugs charges and sex tapes. It’s been torture for the girl from south London who wants to produce some music and make people dance. We watched her trudge into court looking tired, annoyed and hassled – wondering if she’ll ever get back to what she enjoys – wondering if she’ll be jailed. We watched her break down on national TV when the case finished. She showed us the hounding she got from the press, photographers and bedroom trolls.

Yesterday’s news is today’s chip paper. Now, the female boss is back.

“It feels so good to be back in the swing of things. Not having to worry about stuff anymore. It’s been such a whirlwind year and not always in a good way.”

Tulisa’s new single ‘Living Without You’ comes with a video that shows her killer new look.

“I keep freaking out over sit ups. Even an hour of workout takes so much will power”.

Now the boss is back on her feet and back in shape, what of N-Dubz? The calls for a reunion seemed to start a few hours after Tulisa, Fazer and Dappy announced they were taking some time out. Watching back some old episodes of ‘Being N-Dubz’, the fly on the wall documentary that followed the three of them around to gigs, rehearsals and trips to Ibiza, it’s hard to not pine after some more of the drama.

“That was some of the funniest times of my life. There were arguments, explosions and fireworks! I remember watching that scene where I came out of the pool in Ibiza going crazy and calling the producer to have a go at him for making me look stupid! Epic show that was”

Enough already… is it happening again or not?

“I think it’s inevitable. It’s going to happen but we haven’t put a date on it, we haven’t set anything in stone. I know Dappy likes his crazy tweets now and then, like “N-Dubz are getting back together!” and I’m like, really? When we feel it, it’ll happen. I’d have to have my own tour bus though, them two are terrors!”

It can be arranged. And while we’re tacking rumors, there are fresh calls for an X Factor return. It looked like Louis Walsh had let slip a show secret when he declared that she’d be back on the show in the next series and either Cheryl or Mel B would step aside.

“Louis just gets excited. He’s like Dappy, he just talks and talks and there will be another story out! Like, Louis, what have you gone and said? Why does it say I’m returning to X Factor Louis? What have you gone and said now?”


“Nothing has been said. There have been no conversations about it. Obviously, anything is possible. It’s something I would do.”

Anybody got Simon’s number?
