Simon Cowell has revealed that he would be willing to work with Tulisa again, after her drugs trial was thrown out of court due to “serious misconduct” on the part of a key witness for the prosecution.
Tulisa was previously a judge on ‘The X Factor’ for two years, mentoring winning act Little Mix, who have gone on to have chart success on both sides of the Atlantic, and Ella Henderson, whose debut single ‘Ghost’ topped the UK singles chart for two weeks earlier this year.
Simon has now defended the former N-Dubz singer, and said that he’d be happy to give her a role on one of his shows in the future, telling The Mirror: “I think we would end up doing something with Tulisa again.”
“She’s had rough time but she’s come through the other side, so I wouldn’t rule anything out.”

However, it sounds like Simon might have to get in line, after the Daily Star have claimed that producers for both ‘I’m A Celebrity’ and ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ are pulling out the big guns to try and win Tulisa over and get her to take part in their shows.
A source told the newspaper: “Tulisa ticks every box for the jungle so trying to sign her for the show is a no-brainer for producers.
“ITV’s initial offer to Tulisa is around the £250,000 mark but that figure could easily hit £500,000 if she plays her cards right.”
Her cousin and former bandmate Dappy was a housemate on the most recent series of ‘CBB’, with Tulisa showing up to support him during the live final, which saw him finishing in second place behind controversial comic Jim Davidson.
