Tulisa Contostavlos has one less thing to worry about as Simon Cowell is standing by her in the wake of her sex tape scandal.
The former N-Dubz singer has been left humiliated after admitting she was the girl performing a sex act in the seven-minute clip which appeared online earlier this week.
Tulisa, who initially branded the footage a fake, made her confession to fans in an online video message, in which she spoke about her devastation at the clip becoming public and her ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards, who she blames for the leak.
The controversy sparked rumours that her job on The X Factor had been thrown into jeopardy, but the show's boss Simon Cowell insists the scandal won't affect her returning to the panel this year.
The music mogul has also angrily lashed out at the person who sold the sex tape.
"Whoever he is, he's a scumbag - and I'm being really conservative with my words here.
"He should literally find a hole and hide in it for the next week. It really, really annoys me. It's like, 'Who do you think you are?'
"It makes no difference with me about her coming back on the show - 100 per cent. I mean, God, if I said no [to her coming back] it's allowing every sleazebag in the country to wreck somebody's career when she didn't do something wrong.
"The public are very, very a) forgiving, and b) understanding. But I hope they don't forgive the person who did it."
Stars including Daisy Lowe, Aston Merrygold and Kirk Norcross also dedicated their support to Tulisa on Twitter.
Meanwhile, her former lover Justin denied leaking the tape.
