Tulisa's father wants her to go back to her roots

Tulisa Contostavlos’s dad thinks his daughter should sack off The X Factor and go back to N-Dubz.

Tulisa, 24, joined The X Factor judging panel in 2011, but father Plato Contostavlos, 53, claims she is already fed up with the talent show and would do better if she returned to her old band.

Tulisa doesn’t want to be there, she’s bored of it,’ he says.

‘She doesn’t need The X Factor, she’s got N-Dubz.’

Plato says he only has his daughter’s best interests at heart.

‘What I want for her is security, so she never has to rely on anybody apart from herself,’ he says.

‘I want her to make some serious dosh, millions, by doing an independent album with N-Dubz.’
