'X Factor': Tulisa Wants 2 Shoes Back - Do You? (VOTE)

11/11/2011 16:04 | Updated 11 January 2012


Tulisa Contostavlos wants 2 Shoes back on The X Factor as she thinks they'll inject some much-needed fun back into the competition.

The X Factor judge - who picked the double act from her groups category to leave during the first live final - wants viewers to bring them back to replace Frankie Cocozza, who was axed from the show on Tuesday after he broke show rules by boasting about drug use.

Viewers can throw a lifeline to one of the four acts who were ditched from the show by their own mentors, with 2 Shoes competing with Amelia Lily, James Michael and Jonjo Kerr.

ITV and show producers TalkbackThames and Syco have said the profits from the phonecalls - amounting to at least 22p per call - will go to Help For Heroes.

Phone lines opened at 4pm today (Friday) and close during the show on Saturday, which begins at 8.15pm, with call terms at www.itv.com/terms.

Barlow on the Beatles. "You sounded the same as last week. Four guys, doing pop songs. Have you thought about acoustic guitars?" #xfactor

@ DisorderMag :

I want to see Marcus stalking the stage like Prince, with oiled up dancers. This cuddly asexual pop thing is a damp squib. #xfactor

Looking at what's come so far tonight, Amelia Lily can look forward to a comfortable slot in the final #xfactor

Marcus has found his identity. Unfortunately, Bruno Mars had it about 3 years ago. #xfactor

For reasons too complicated to explain X-Factor are apparently allowing Storm Lee back. #xfactor
