Tulisa would date an ‘X Factor’ contestant.

The reality TV judge is looking for love and would consider going out with someone who auditioned for her show, even if they work in a fast food restaurant.

She told The Sun newspaper: “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.”

However, the singer - who was left embarrassed when her ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards leaked a sex tape of them earlier this year - warned she finds it difficult to meet new people who interest her.

She added: “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.”

Tulisa - voted the world’s sexiest woman in a poll by FHM magazine - added she’d never get romantically involved with someone while they were still appearing on the show.

She said: “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. It doesn’t matter what their job is.”

Tulisa split from her N Dubz band mate Fazer earlier this year, and had a brief romance with actor Jack O’Connell, but is now single, although she has been spotted getting cosy with Olympic long jump gold medallist Greg Rutherford after filming a TV show recently.
