Tulisa Contostavlos

Tulisa Contostavlos has denied reports which suggest she pulled out of this year’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here days before she was due to fly to Australia.

According to the Daily Star, show sources claimed the singer had a last minute change of heart about appearing in the 16th series of the reality show because she has a fear of insects.

However a rep for the former X Factor judge has since told The Mirror that Tulisa couldn’t have dropped out of the series because she had never agreed to take part to begin with.

Tulisa’s rep said: “This story is complete lies.  Tulisa never signed up for I’m a Celebrity this year.  She never even had a meeting with the show this year.”

The Daily Star suggested that the former N-Dubz singer had been approached on multiple occasions about entering the famous jungle with an offer of £500,000 reportedly being put forward.

The site quoted the 28-year-old’s “epic bug phobia” as a potential reason for her alleged backing out and said Strictly Come Dancing’s Ola Jordan would take Tulisa’s place on I’m a Celebrity this year.

During the week, Tulisa shared some very controversial photos on Instagram, where fans were shocked by how much her face has changed.

But that didn't seem to bother the star, as she's just revealed she's set to make a major comeback to the music scene.

The former X Factor judge said she can't wait to get back into the charts and is all on for going back to her roots.

She told The Daily Star: "All I can say is that by the end of the summer you will be hearing from me.

"It is reverting back to the old Tulisa with the new fresh vibe of who I am now. It's reverting back to my urban roots."

She added: "I can't wait to get back out there. I'm not nervous, I just can't wait to get back to being me."



She's previously admitted to having lip and cheek fillers because she was "bored," but now Tulisa Contostavlos' fans think she's gone a step too far.

The singer sparked concern a few days ago when she posted a selfie to Instagram, captioning it: "Rise & shine." However, even though the former X Factor judge is fresh-faced in the snap, she looks like a completely different person.

She furthered the concern today when she took to the social media site again, posting another barely-recognisable face.

This time she simply captioned the pic with a lip emoji, but instead of hugs and kisses, her followers flooded her page with messages like, "Tulisa ruined her pretty face."

Another user commented, "Tulisa has had some sort of face transplant," and one more follower said, "Fact is Tulisa was buff before the surgery, don't know why she had to go and remould her face, who made her this insecure (sic)."

We have to admit, she looks very different from her N-Dubz and X Factor days.


Former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos made her return to the red carpet at the 2015 Attitude Awards.

Putting her finest fashion foot forward Tulisa, who recently made headlines after crashing her Ferrari and getting arrested, turned plenty of heads in London.

The bash, which Sir Ian McKellan and Frankie Bridge also attended was held at London’s Banqueting House.

Keeping up the glam vibe at the event, Tulisa debuted a navy-blue velour pants suit.

The blue two-piece ensemble was from Topshop and the whole look including the shoes (also Topshop) cost €250. A red carpet bargain.

Considering Tulisa has often donned some more pricey pieces, the tailored cigarette pants and super-plunging blazer are pretty affordable in comparison.

Several years ago audiences were treated to some of Tulisa’s more expensive style moments as she and Nicole Scherzinger were the X Factor judges worth watching every week.

​Tulisa was more likely to be seen sporting designer dresses and full-length sequined gowns as she and the former Pussycat Doll went head to head in the style stakes.

​Topshop has long been a favourite of those on the fashion scene, but it is definitely more affordable than the couture frocks she was favouring in the past.

She kept her makeup for the evening simple with a dark smoky eye, a dusty pink lip and what looks like some skilled contouring.



Former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos remains in police custody this afternoon after being arrested last night in London.

It is being reported that the 27-year-old crashed her €200,000 dark navy-coloured Ferrari into a another vehicle at a Tube station in Southgate, North London last night.

Mail Online says she was breathalysed at the scene and subsequently arrested on the back of those results.

A police spokesman today explained: "Police were called shortly before midnight on Thursday [September 10] to outside Southgate Underground Station following reports of two cars in collision.

"Officers and London Fire Brigade attended. There were no reported injuries.

"One of the drivers, a 27-year-old woman, was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving and taken to an East London police station.

"A breath test was administered. We do not discuss the results. She remains in custody."

There is as of yet still no official comment from the singer's representatives on the matter. 


Former X Factor judge Tulisa Contastavlos sparked controversy last year when she stepped out with a dramatically changed face due to cosmetic surgery.

With fuller lips and puffy cheeks, it was clear Tulisa had gone under the knife, which confused many as the star had a naturally youthful face already.

However the singer has admitted her choice to undergo surgery was mainly made out of boredom and that she has no plans to do it again. In a revealing chat with the Loose Women ladies this week, Tulisa revealed that she suffered an infection from some of the surgery.

"For me, it was a bit of boredom to be honest. I'd always wanted my lips done but the only place I got an infection was in my cheeks. I knew it was water and was going to go."

Tulisa says she is happier with her looks now and wouldn't make any other changes. "The cheeks have gone down and now I just have my lips and I'm happy with them. I'm not going to have anything else," she added.

Depsite having a slew of younger fans from her days with N-Dubz and The X Factor, the star says she would hate to be thought of as a role model. "I don't want people to act like me, I act out my mistakes. It's about living your life and riding with the mistakes… don't call me a role model – call me an inspirer."

Tulisa says she'd rather be open about the challenges she has faced than pretend she is flawless. "It's about taking those experiences and showing my younger fans how I got through it rather than saying I'm perfect," she said.

Seems like a good attitude to us!



Tulisa Contostavlos has made no secret of her desire to return to the X Factor fold, and it looks like she has just had her wish granted.

With poor Mel B forced out of tonight’s show due to a mystery illness, it has been revealed that former judge Tulisa has been lined up to fill in for her.

The news was announced earlier today through the show’s official Twitter account, with producers confirming: “Unfortunately Mel B is unwell and on doctor’s advice she will not be taking part in tonight’s show. Tonight Tulisa will join the panel as a Guest Judge.”

Now, we know that Simon Cowell has stated that he has no plans to change this year’s “dream team” panel, but we have a feeling Tulisa will be pulling out all the stops to impress in the hope of making a more permanent return.

What are your thoughts on this latest twist? We’re excited!



Tulisa is back, and she’s raring to go.

Indeed, with a new single out, the singer has revealed that she is finally ready to put her legal troubles behind her and get back to what she loves best – music.

Speaking on Radio 1, the 26-year-old revealed that the past few difficult months have made her stronger than ever.

“I appreciate the good times now. Life is a rollercoaster – the lower you go, the higher you bounce back,” she said, adding, “People expect me to be bitter, but you just need to move forward.”

And Cheryl and Mel B may want to watch their backs, because the former N-Dubz star also has her eyes on her old X Factor job!

The Young singer revealed: “I would do X Factor full-time again. With the years I didn’t do it, I found myself – I had my enlightenment year. And now it’s something I could go back to and really enjoy.”

Are you listening, Simon Cowell?



It looks like model Cara Delevingne is off the market.

According to reports today, the stunning model has taken quite a fancy to actor Jack O’Connell, and the pair have enjoyed a string of dates.

Who is Jack O’Connell, you say? Well, for those of you who don’t recognise the super-talented actor from Skins, he also used to date none other than singer and X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos.

A source told The Sun newspaper that the pair are quite keen on each other, and though it’s early days, it looks like romance could bloom.

“Jack and Cara get on really well. So far, their relationship is very casual but she’s a big fan of him,” said the source, adding, “They’ve been on a few dates and been seeing each other quite often, but it’s not yet serious.”

While Jack dated Tulisa all the way back in 2012, we would love to be a fly on the wall when she discovers that her ex is dating one of the most beautiful models in the world – we’re not so sure how we’d process that information ourselves!

Anyway, we think Cara and cheeky-chappy Jack would make a great couple.




There has been a LOT of buzz around Tulisa Contostavlos’s appearance lately, and whether or not she’s had any cosmetic work done to her face.

And now the former X Factor judge has opened up about the rumours, admitting that she DID have work done.

Tulisa says that she never denied that she had work done, because she'd not given an interview in the last year to do so.

She then went on to admit she has had cosmetic enhancement.

“Yes, I’ve had my lips done, and I’m happy with my lips. And I also had a tiny bit of filler in my cheeks,” she said. “Pictures of me where my face was swelling. I had water retention – where you have filler your face draws up a load of water. So my face began to swell like a balloon.”

“It really bugs me when people say I’ve had a nose job. That’s just makeup,” she said.

The singer said she made the decision to get the work done after losing a “load of weight”.

"So losing a stone, filler in my cheeks, my lips done and the contouring – and people do think, oh gosh, you so different,” she says.

But Tulisa says that she’s “happy with it”.

Asked if her Female Boss was still an accurate tattoo, she said, “More than ever. I've surprised myself. I feel stronger, wiser – enlightened. I feel I've had 10 years worth of my life lessons in one year, and money can’t buy that.”

We’re really glad you’re feeling more like yourself Tulisa!





Simon Cowell’s representatives have released a statement, in response to the claims surrounding his sexuality at Tulisa Contostavlos’ trial last week.

Last Thursday a recording of Tulisa’s personal assistant, Gareth Varey, had suggested that Cowell was gay.

And Simon of course, did not react well to this.

Cowell’s lawyers have released a statement on his behalf about the claims.

“Simon was referred to during the trial without forewarning, resulting in widespread media coverage of untrue claims regarding his private life. In 2014 the question of whether someone is or is not gay is antiquated. (As it happens he isn’t, though if he were, he would simply have said so). However, the issue was the false suggestion made by Mr Varey that Simon – who is renowned for his honesty and candidness – had thus not been truthful in the public arena and this is what we have been obliged to clarify.”



We knew Tulisa’s trial was going to be dramatic but we didn’t expect a public outing of her former boss, Simon Cowell.

The former X Factor judge, Tulisa is on trial after being accused of setting up a drug deal for an undercover journalist in the Sun.

As part of the trial, secret recordings were being played to the jurors which included one recorded conversation between Tulisa’s former manager and Gareth Varey and Mazher Mahmood.

Apparently Mahmood asked Gareth if Simon Cowell was gay to which he replied: “Yes”.

And if that wasn’t enough, Gareth said he hadn’t slept with the music mogul himself, but knew of people who had.

Hmmm, we wonder what Simon will say about this?
