The £70,000 makeover that Simon Cowell ordered X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos to undertake has paid off, as she shines in these first promotional shots for X Factor series eight.

Contostavlos has ditched her brightly coloured tracksuits and now looks strangely similar to how her predecessor, Cheryl Cole, used to appear on the hit talent show.

Fellow judges Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland and Louis Walsh have also scrubbed up well for the official X Factor photos.

The release of the photos means we don't have long to go before the show is back on our screens.

Who are you most looking forward to seeing on the judging panel?
