X Factor judge and sex-tape sensation Tulisa has revealed who she would like to be sat next to on the upcoming 2012 series of X Factor.

The 'Young' singer has named Lily Allen as her star of choice to replace Kelly Rowland on this year's talent show series. Rowland is said to be unlikely to return to the show after demanding a huge pay increase and failing to connect with audiences during her 2011 stint on the ITV singing show.

Speaking backstage at her recent GAY show in London, Tulisa said: "I'd like someone like Lily Allen."

She also said that she would be open to Dannii Minogue returning to the show, following recent tabloid rumours of a comeback for the Aussie star.

"I've always liked Dannii from watching her on the show before, I don't know her, but I'm sure we would get on," she added.
