According to The Sun, Tulisa and Louis will fly out to Bermuda to film the show within the next month.
Louis and Tulisa are thought to have kept in contact following her departure from the show.
Meanwhile, Madge is apparently being lined up to perform during one of the live shows.
“It’s looking very hopeful Madonna will perform, possibly in November on one of the live shows,” another source explains to The Sun. “There are a lot of big names releasing music at that time, but she’s absolutely the number one name we are trying to secure.
‘X Factor’ will return to TV screens in September.
While bosses are remaining tight-lipped on this year’s contestants, it’s thought that Rob Pattinson’s sister Lizzy has made it past the audition stages.
