Tulisa Contostavlos to reunite with N Dubz – leaving X Factor 2013?
Tulisa Contostavlos has confirmed that she will be reuniting with her N-Dubz pals.
The North London girl shot to fame as part of the musical trio, composed of herself, cousin Dappy and ex-boyfriend Fazer, but they took a break when she landed a job on The X Factor last year.
The three stars have been working on solo projects ever since, but Tulisa revealed that they will be staging a reunion, but she’s not totally sure of the date just yet.
Speaking to BBC Newsbeat, Tulisa said: “Nothing’s changed, it’s just a case of when and we don’t have a time on it yet.”
It won’t be just yet it would seem as Dappy – who was found guilty by a jury at Guildford Crown Court this month of assault by beating – will face sentencing on February 15th, while Tulisa is getting ready to kick off her tour with Ne-Yo. She announced a few months ago that she will be supporting the US star on his UK Arena tour.
It sounds like she’s looking forward to the gigs and she added:
“I’ve heard so much about him and what a great guy he is and an amazing talent. I’m really excited about being back in arenas again.”
“The way that it came about is that we have the same agency and it was just an idea that they came up with and approached me and asked me if I’d like to do it. We approached him and asked him if he’d be up for it and he was.”
Tulisa wants to head back to The X Factor later this year but it’s been claimed that Simon Cowell is planning to replace her next month.
Insiders say he wants Cheryl Cole or Sharon Osbourne to take her place on the panel, after ratings drastically fell again in 2012. It’s thought that Gary Barlow won’t be back either, but sources have said that Nicole Scherzinger will return, after getting two acts to the final last month.
