Last week I revealed that Tulisa has been lined up to replace Dannii Minogue as a Judge on this year’s X-Factor. And now it’s being reported the N-Dubz singer is gearing up to sign a mega £500,000 deal to join the ITV talent show.
A friend of the 22-year-old star spoke with The Sun newspaper, telling the tabloid that Tulisa is very keen to ink the deal: “This is a dream come true for Tulisa. This will catapult her to a household name,” the friend explained. “She is being talked about as the new Cheryl.”
Take That star Gary Barlow is set to replace Simon Cowall and is being offered a staggering £1.5 million contract. Reports are also rife that former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland will take the final judging slot.
Wow, that’s a lot of change all at once. It’s going to be interesting to see how this new panel work. No Simon, Cheryl or Dannii, means that there’s some BIG shoes to fill…
