'X Factor' judges Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh are like "two old biddies" behind the scenes
Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh are like "two old biddies" behind the scenes of 'X Factor'.
The 'Young' singer - who was thought to be warring with the Irish music mogul after he branded her a "chav in a tracksuit" - said that 'The X Factor' judges are like best friends when they hang out behind the scenes gossiping and drinking wine.
She tells Caroline Flack on 'The Xtra Factor': "First day, took me make-up off, got me pyjamas on, put a bit of Savlon on me spot, got ready for bed and ding dong, he's like, 'Hello, what's going on here?', cracks open the wine we were having a laugh like two old biddies on the bed chilling out and he didn't leave until very late..."
The 60-year-old music veteran has been sporting a voluminous new hairdo of late and his fellow judges have been teasing him relentlessly.
Tulisa joked: "I have asked Louis about the hair but he said - 'it grew'."
Louis replied: "The other judges are probably jealous because they can't understand why I'm not ageing but I look after myself."
Gary Barlow quipped: "He's looking good for 78."
Saturday's 'X Factor' episode (01.09.12) also sees the triumphant return of ousted contestant Jade Richards who failed to make the live shows last year and has come back more determined than ever.
She said: "I was like right, I just have to get on with it, get started again, get gigging."
"I started going to the gym and lost quite a bit of weight.
"When I got the no it has made me more determined to come back. Puts some fire into you I think."
