Tulisa quiet over X Factor comeback

Tulisa Contostavlos showed off her new hair do at the Sony Radio Academy Awards

Tulisa Contostavlos stayed silent over rumours of her X Factor return, as she stepped out at the Sony Awards.

The 24-year-old singer and TV judge was all smiles as she showed off her new curly hair and her curves in a strapless black peplum dress with gold embellishment as she attended the glitzy bash, held at London's Grosvenor Hotel.

It has not yet been confirmed if the N-Dubz star will reprise her judging role on the ITV show for the third year running, alongside returning judges Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh, but she is rumoured to be facing the axe.

The show's host Dermot O'Leary - who took home the gong for best music programme for his BBC Radio 2 radio show - remained tight-lipped about the X Factor judges, saying: "The panel hasn't been sorted out yet. I don't know yet. I don't like to know - I prefer to live in ignorance."

Other stars who were at the ceremony included Caroline Flack in a striking orange outfit, Myleene Klass in a pretty lace and floral number, Emma Willis and Stephen Mulhern.

Caroline also admitted she is in the dark about the X Factor's judging line-up, saying: "I don't know what's going on on the judging panel. I'm usually the last to find out."

And she teased there will be an announcement shortly about the spin-off show The Xtra Factor, following the exit of her co-presenter Olly Murs.

"I'm getting ready to return to The Xtra Factor so I'm really excited to be going back," she said, adding: "We're about to do an announcement about what's happening on The Xtra Factor so that's coming really soon."

Radio 2 presenter Chris Evans hosted the event, which featured performances by Robbie Williams, The Saturdays without pregnant bandmate Rochelle Humes and Jamie Cullum.

If your current home can't support the lifestyle changes in your household, it is time to move. Search for a quiet hideaway where you can all rest and relax after a hard day's work.More
