Tulisa Contostavlos will be taking her 'X Factor' finalists to her granny's house in Greece.
The N-Dubz singer - who judges the ITV1 show alongside Kelly Rowland, Louis Walsh and Gary Barlow - explained she is planning to ship the contestants to her homeland to decide who will make it through to the live finals of the competition.
She said: "I've not decided for certain, but I've suggested my granny's house in Greece."
Meanwhile, the 22-year-old star explained former 'X Factor' judge Cheryl Cole - who was hired and subsequently fired from the US version of the show earlier this year - has said to give her a call if she needs any hints and tips about sitting on the panel.
Tulisa added to Now magazine: "I keep having to pinch myself to remember I'm here. I can't believe it. Cheryl Cole has said to call if I have any problems."
The brunette beauty recently admitted she has "always admired" Cheryl.
She 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."
