Tulisa confirms she has quit the X Factor





TULISA has confirmed she has quit the X Factor judging panel after two years.

She made the announcement this afternoon on her Twitter account.

“Just wanted to let you all know that I won't be part of the X Factor panel this year.

“I've had a great time on the show, but this year it's time to do something different.

“I'd like to thank everyone on The X Factor for two amazing years. Stay tuned as I have a very exciting announcement soon!” she said.

It had been widely reported the former N-Dubz singer had been axed, paving the way for the return for Sharon Osbourne.

Louis Walsh has confirmed he and Gary Barlow will be back – it is expected Sharon Osbourne and either Nicole Scherzinger or Mel B will make up the rest of the panel.

The X Factor is expected to return in late August.
