Axed Judge Alert! Tulisa NOT Being Asked Back To X Factor

Uh oh, it seems that Tulisa has been given the chop and is set to be booted off The X Factor. Rumour has it Simon Cowell will NOT be asking the former N Dublette to return to the ITV judging panel in a bid to boost the show's less than impressive ratings.

The 24-year-old was apparently criticised for having fag ash breath being "too distracted" by her personal life and turning up late for rehearsals. Tut tut Tulisa.

A source allegedly told The Mirror, "Simon has always liked to change things every year and Tulisa is going to pay the price for that. She wasn't committed last year as when she won with Little Mix in 2011 and someone has to exit to freshen the series up."

Guess what? Tulisa's absence wont be the only change to the talent show. ITV are apparently keen to kick Louis Walsh to the curb, but Simon The Great And Powerful would like him to stay and make his grand exit after this year's 10th anniversary series.

Gary Barlow, who looked as if he'd given up the ghost by the end of the last series, has also suggested he'll be throwing in his judging towel.

So, it looks like Scherzy is the only one with a GUARANTEED place. "Nicole was a surprise hit and she is welcome back with open arms if she wants to stay," the source revealed to the tabloid.

Who would you ask to be a new judge?
