Tulisa has opened up about her cosmetic surgery woes and the possibility of returning as a judge on The X Factor on Lorraine.

Host Lorraine Kelly quizzed the singer about her troubles with cosmetic surgery, telling the N-Dubz star “It’s good to see you looking so well cos you went through a whole time where, you daft thing, you did silly things to your face.”

Tulisa explained: “I went through stages and I had an allergic reaction to something and it took me a long time to get rid of it. But I’m happy now, still having little bits of filler in my lips. I get lots of treatments… and do my collagen wave now and again.

“It’s all about maintaining… Inside and outside. Giving yourself a little spruce now and then, exercise comes into play. Keep you feeling good in here.”

Tulisa compared herself to Finding Nemo before pulling a face at the camera, imitating a fish.

On finally putting her court case against will.i.am – a six-year legal battle over the writing credit for the song ‘Scream and Shout’ – behind her, she said: “[I needed] some me time, just to figure out what it is I wanted to do. And just to heal, everyone wants to heal. It’s been a long journey. I’m feeling good. Better than ever.”

“I haven’t spoken to them. There haven’t been any conversations about it,” she said. “Of course, X Factor was such a life changing thing for me. It really put me on a platform that I’m eternally grateful for. I love the show, I loved doing the show. It’s an incredible process being part of changing people’s lives. Being a part of that even, I get to look at Little Mix now and I get to be part of that.”

Finally, the singer also hinted that she would be happy for her old group N-Dubz to get back together, but blamed Dappy for delaying their reunion.

“I’m going to stick it all on Dappy,” she said. It really is all down to Dappy to get his butt together and sorting it out and doing it. The two of us [Tulisa and Fazer] want to do it. Of course, N-Dubz was the foundation of it all.”
