Tulisa: 'Gary Barlow is a shocker' on 'X Factor'

Tuesday August 9, 2011

Tulisa Contostavlos has revealed she thinks her fellow X Factor panellist Gary Barlow is a "shocker" when it comes to speaking his mind on the show.

Tulisa told the Daily Mirror that the Take That star "amazes" her with his honesty when he's talking to hopefuls.

The N-Dubz singer said: "Gary is my biggest competition – especially when it comes to speaking his mind.

"I thought I was bad but Gary is the shocker."

She went on: "He always speaks his mind. If you are s***, he will tell you."

The 23-year-old added that she wanted to bring her bandmate Dappy on board to help mentor the acts.

She said: "I don't know if it will happen but it's something I am fighting for.

"I think all the contestants will love him."

Also new to the panel this year is Destiny's Child singer Kelly Rowland. Louis Walsh is the only original panellist left.
