The Wanted‘s Max George and Tom Parker believe Tulisa Contostavlos will be a great X Factor judge because she speaks her mind.

The Glad You Came singers helped the N-Dubz star celebrate her 23rd birthday at the weekend, and having both auditioned for The X Factor in the past they think she will be a great addition to the panel.

Max said: “I think she’ll be great – she’s got a great personality and I think she speaks her mind which is what’s needed. Rather than just sitting there being pretty or whatever, she’s actually got something to her.”

Tom added: “I think she’s going to be amazing because she’s very down-to-earth and she tells it very straight, which I think you need. And she looks great as well, which always helps.”

The lads are keen to see the new X Factor judges in action.

Max said: “I think it’s good, I think they’re all quite different. Gary is sort of the wise old head. You’ve got feistiness in Tulisa, Louis’s Louis and Kelly, she’s sort of the diva one. I think it’s quite a cool line-up.”

The lads revealed they had been partying hard since their latest single went to No 1, despite already having a wild night at Tulisa’s party.

Max said: “It was messy. Dappy was throwing whiskey down our necks. I can’t really remember getting home. It was a good night though.”
