It's been a turbulent few months for Tulisa Contostavlos. But the star is ready to step back into the spotlight with a return to The X Factor. This week, the former X Factor judge was spotted filming scenes in Bermuda, where Louis Walsh is currently holding the Judges' Houses stage of the competition. Wearing a white bikini, the star looked healthy and happy surrounded by members of the crew.

Louis and Tulisa got on well when they appeared together on series eight and nine of the hit show, and following the collapse of Tulisa's drugs trial, the Irish star revealed his plans to get her back on board. "I have spoken to Tulisa.

I totally support her. I spent so much time in her dressing room, I know who the real Tulisa is," he told the Sunday People. "She's rough around the edges but she's a good girl. I like her.

I definitely would have her at Judges' Houses. She'll bounce back.

"She's a tough lady, and she's made it this far on her own. My advice would be to make a great record and show off that gorgeous face of hers." At the time, Simon Cowell also spoke out in support of the star. "Tulisa's been through a tough time and has come through it," said the X Factor boss. "I think she deserves a break now. I think she's got a lot of opportunities ahead of her."

Louis will no doubt be pleased to have Tulisa by his side as he picks his acts for the live shows; she remains the only judge in the show's history to win with a group with Little Mix in 2011.
