Tulisa Contostavlos: Louis Walsh is my muffin
Tulisa Contostavlos calls fellow 'X Factor' judge Louis Walsh her ''little muffin'', as the pair have a ''father and daughter relationship''
Tulisa Contostavlos calls Louis Walsh her "little muffin".
The 'X Factor' judge - who is joined on the panel of the ITV1 show by Louis, Gary Barlow and Kelly Rowland - admitted the pair have a "father and daughter relationship".
She said: "Lou-Lou is my fave. I love Lou-Lou - he's my little muffin. It's a strange relationship - kind of like a father/daughter relationship, but we're best friends, so it's quite funny.
"I don't think there's any way to describe it properly because the chemistry is really rather strange."
However, the N-Dubz star is thrilled to be given the opportunity to break away from the band and be her "own person".
Tulisa added to Top of the Pops magazine: "It's a lot of pressure as you can imagine, but it's good because it's a whole new chapter in my life - the Tulisa journey - and I finally get to be my own person away from the band.
"I've always loved the show and thought it would be such an exciting role, so I've landed my dream job."
