Tulisa: 'I'd Date An X Factor Contestant'
X Factor judge admits she wouldn't rule it out if there was 'chemistry'...
Tulisa has admitted she would happily date a contestant - just as long as there was "chemistry".
Having been unlucky in love so far, 24-year-old Tulisa is on the lookout for "the one", and she doesn't care what his background is.
She told The Sun: "If I find someone who's a good guy that I get along with, I don't really care what he does, and that goes for anything.
"I don't care if he works in McDonald's. The one is the one."
The Young singer then backtracked a bit, by adding: "I'm out and about a lot and I meet loads of people but it's hard to meet someone.
"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."
But there's still hope for X Factor wannabe Sheyi, the Nando's worker who got flirty with the former N-Dubz star on Saturday night's show - just don't expect any blossoming on-screen romances between the pair.
Tulisa went on: "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."
