Tulisa gutted over X Factor axe

Tulisa Contostavlos

Poor Tulisa.  Despite winning X Factor with Little Mix, TV bosses have cut the Young singer from the show leaving her 'gutted and embarrassed'.

She confided in friends after a crunch meeting on Tuesday, who then spilled the beans to The Sun:

"To say Tulisa is gutted is an understatement. She's a bit embarrassed to be on the scrapheap when she delivered with Little Mix.

"She's thrown away one of the most high-profile jobs in the industry as well as one of the best paid.

"But she simply wasn't up to scratch last year and Simon Cowell had no real option."

An X Factor spokesman hasn't done much to clear the story up, saying that the meeting was to 'review the year'.

Hmmm - rumours are also circulating that Robbie Williams is being offered a deal alongside Gary Barlow, who has just patched things up with big boss Simon.  Nicole Scherzinger is being offered a tempting package despite saying she wants to leave to concentrate on her music and Mel B could be in with a shot at a gig.

Who would you choose as your ideal line-up?

I'd most certainly get rid of louis walsh, and replace him with kermit the frog as he'd probably have much more sensible and constructive things to say. And as for mel b i reckon miss piggy would be more useful as she and kermit have much more talent between them.

Definately Mel B she was so funny, rude and honest at the same time, but i think Sophie Ellis Bextor should be given a shot at it and the males should be Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh
