'X Factor' judge Tulisa Contostavlos has revealed Cheryl Cole has told her to call her if she needs advice
Cheryl Cole has told Tulisa Contostavlos to come to her if she needs advice on 'The X Factor'.
The 'Parachute' singer - who turned down the chance to return to the British show after being sacked from the US version - has struck up a friendship with the N-Dubz star, who has joined the panel along with Kelly Rowland and Gary Barlow, and offered to help her out if she has any questions about the high-profile programme.
Tulisa said: "She's been lovely. She's always been someone I've admired because she came from the same background and, regardless of it being Newcastle, we're two people who have come from nothing.
"She told me that if I ever do need advice, let her know and she's here for me so that was really nice of her."
Cheryl recently dyed her hair blonde and had it cut into a shorter style, and Tulisa can understand why her new pal took action.
She told Choice FM: "I think she can pull off anything and I know why she's done it.
"She's most probably been a bit manic and the one thing I do when I need a fresh start is to just dye my hair as I find it really refreshing.
"I think she probably wanted to refresh herself and feel like this is the new Cheryl."
