Tulisa has turned down a reported deal to appear on this year's 'Celebrity Big Brother'. 

The former 'X Factor' judge has denied she will be taking part in the new series of the Channel 5 reality show, after The Mirror claimed she had been offered £500,000 to take part.

A source had told the paper that producers were "desperate" to sign her and that she was "seriously thinking about" the offer. 

However, it seems she's had a change of heart, as her spokesperson has told Digital Spy she will not be among the housemates entering the Elstree compound this year. 

"Tulisa is definitely not appearing in 'Celebrity Big Brother' this year," they said

"Her plans for 2016 will be announced shortly."

It is not the first time Tulisa has been linked to 'CBB', as she was reportedly offered a place in the house last year, following her cousin and fellow N-Dubz star Dappy's successful stint a year previously. 

She's also been rumoured for 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' on a number of occasions, but claimed she had no interest in appearing on more reality shows in 2014. 

"Those rumours come up every year, I’m a musician, I’ve done TV but I’ve never really been a reality TV star and it’s not the route I’m looking to go down, and when I do TV I want it to be connected to music," she told Radio 1. 

Tulisa was previously a judge on 'The X Factor' from 2011 to 2012, and returned to fill in for Mel B during the 2014 final.
