Tulisa Contostavlos has vowed to be a "changed" judge on 'The X Factor' this year.

The 'Young' singer - who was left devastated earlier this year when X-rated footage of her and ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards was leaked onto the internet - will take a different approach on the panel of the ITV1 talent show, despite winning the show with girl group Little Mix last year.

She said: "You may see a change in me this year, as I'm changing each day."

The 23-year-old singer also revealed her favourite part of being a judge is having the ability to alter a person's life for the better by making them a star.

In response to a question on a web chat with MSN, she added: "Being able to change people's lives."

Tulisa is set to return to the judging panel alongside Take That star Gary Barlow and Irish music mogul Louis Walsh, but former Destiny's Child singer Kelly Rowland has reportedly asked for her salary to be increased if 'X Factor' bosses want her back on the show.

Gary recently admitted he is "thrilled" to have signed up for another year on the programme - which is due to begin in the autumn, with auditions to start filming in Cardiff next month - and is "very excited" about finding new talent.

He said: "I'm thrilled to be back and really looking forward to working with 'The X Factor' team again.

"The fact that a superstar could just walk out on that stage is very exciting."
