N-Dubz star Tulisa has revealed she would consider dating an X Factor contestant - if the chemistry was right and she considered him 'the one'.
The 'Young' singer, who was involved in a sex tape scandal earlier in 2012, has said she struggles to find suitable men to date in the music industry, and doubts she would find romance with a wannabe on the ITV reality show. However, she says if she found 'the one', it wouldn't matter where or what he did.
"I'm out and about a lot and I meet loads of people but it's hard to meet someone," Tulisa tells The Sun newspaper. "If I can't find it at events where I'm surrounded by people similar to me, in the same industry, I doubt I'm gonna find it in a contestant."
"I'd never date someone I'm mentoring, or any contestant while the show is on."
"But if I met a contestant six months down the line that was not in my category, who I just happened to find chemistry with... I'd date anyone who I got along with or who I found date-worthy. Like I said, it doesn't matter what their job is."
Tulisa was dating Skins actor Jack O'Connell earlier in 2012 after ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards leaked a video of himself and Tulisa engaged in a sex act.
