'X Factor' judges Tulisa Contostavlos and Kelly Rowland have reportedly demanded golf buggies to take them from their dressing rooms to the talent show's stage in Manchester
Tulisa Contostavlos and Kelly Rowland have demanded buggy transport to 'X Factor' auditions.
The pair - who sit alongside Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh on the panel - reportedly requested the vehicles for the five-minute journey from their dressing rooms to the stage at Manchester's EventCity, because they said it took "too long" in their skyscraper heels.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "There had been no big egos or problems, but this could be the start of things as they now realise they can get what they want. They kicked up a big fuss because they don't want to walk very far in designer heels.
"It shouldn't have been a problem, but now two buggies have been drafted in, complete with 'X Factor' branding, just for them."
Tulisa - who took over from Cheryl Cole on the panel - recently admitted she was "really nervous" prior to auditions because she didn't want to be compared to the Geordie beauty or her fellow former judge Dannii Minogue.
She said: "I'm really nervous. I've had so many mixed emotions this week. I feel pressure - but I don't feel like I'm stepping into anyone else's shoes because I could never be Cheryl or Dannii."
