Kelly Rowland has said that the rowing on The X Factor will only get worse as the show continues.

The Destiny's Child star fell out with fellow judge Tulisa Contostavlos after the N-Dubz singer stated that her act Misha B could be "quite mean" to other contestants backstage.

In a recent interview with Heat magazine Rowland insinuated that there is more drama to come saying: "If anything, as the show goes on, the rowing is going to get worse... the closer we get to the final, the closer you are to changing somebody's life."

It is reported that the pair put their differences aside and cleared the air via a telephone call on Sunday night.

Rowland missed last weekend's X Factor as she was unable to fly to the UK because of a sore throat.
