Tulisa Contostavlos has tweeted to confirm that she will not be a judge on the next series of The X Factor.

On her official Twitter account she said: "Just wanted to let you all know that I won't be part of The X Factor panel this year.

"I've had a great time on the show, but this year it's time to do something different.

"I'd like to thank everyone on The X Factor for two amazing years."

Exciting announcement

Tulisa joined the show in 2011 and enjoyed success that year when Little Mix became the first band in The X Factor's history to win.

Tulisa added on Twitter: "Stay tuned as I have a very exciting announcement soon!"

There has been much speculation to possible changes to The X Factor line up when the show returns later this year.

Louis Walsh confirmed this week that he and Gary Barlow will be on the judging panel for the show's 10th run.

It's believed that former judge Sharon Osborne could make a comeback this year.

In an interview on RTE, Louis Walsh added: "I'm sure Sharon Osborne will be back. I helped get her back, she's great fun."
