It looks like 23-year-old Tulisa Contostavlos is struggling to take the place of the nation’s sweet heart Cheryl Cole.

The N-Dubz star was heckled at the Manchester auditions this week with members of the public chanting “bring back Cheryl, bring back Cheryl” leaving her close to tears.

To make matters worse Tulisa was again booed by the audience after criticising contestant Laverne Scott-Roberts for “not connecting to the audience”. Fellow judge Gary Barlow only added fuel to the fire by questioning Tulisa’s train of thought saying ” I don’t know what you’re going on about Tulisa”-ouch.

We thought Tulisa would be a hit replacing Cheryl-We can barely understand what you’re saying stop fake crying-Cole, but evidently she has some work to do in winning the public over.

Should X Factor bring back Cheryl? Or stick with Tulisa?
