Tulisa confirms X Factor exit

Tulisa has announced that she won't be returning to the UK X Factor this year.

The singer joined the show in 2011 as part of a shake-up of the panel, but she confirmed today (May 21) that her time as a judge has come to an end.

The news comes as little surprise, with the 'Young' star's position on the show the subject of great speculation for a number of months.

Whilst revealing her exit, Tulisa added that there are some exciting things planned in her career. The singer said:

"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!"

As previously reported, long-time judge Louis Walsh recently revealed that he and Gary Barlow will continue to judge the show this year.

He also mooted Sharon Osbourne for a return to the panel and added that Spice Girl Mel B is in the mix too.
