Tulisa Contostavlos has hinted it is ''quite possible'' that former 'X Factor' judge Simon Cowell could make a shock appearance on the ITV1 show in a future episode
Tulisa Contostavlos has hinted Simon Cowell may make a surprise appearance on 'The X Factor' later in the series.
The N-Dubz singer explained it is "quite possible" the 51-year-old music mogul - who quit as a panellist on the show after last year's show to concentrate on the launch of the US 'X Factor' - could return to the ITV1 talent competition for a "surprise" appearance.
She said: "Simon loves his guest appearances and he just pops in every now and then to stir up some trouble and then he disappears again.
"So it's quite possible that he will, but you never know with Simon and it will be a surprise if he does."
The 23-year-old star - who made her judging debut on the show on Saturday (20.08.11), alongside fellow newcomers Kelly Rowland and Gary Barlow, as well as original panellist Louis Walsh - was slammed as a "scumbag" and a "dog" by 'X Factor' wannabe George Gerasimou at the London auditions.
However, after taking over from Cheryl Cole on the panel, she thinks it's "inevitable" that people are going to criticise her.
Tulisa added to 'Lorraine': "I think it was inevitable, I actually expected to get slack off someone. I know there was a lot of controversy around the fact that I was taking the role as a judge.
"I just kind of expected it at some point, someone's going to challenge me. So it wasn't so bad when it came along . I gave as good as got I like to think."
