X Factor viewers took to Twitter last night after host Dermot O’Leary was forced to apologise on behalf of judge Tulisa Contostavlos who used the acronym ‘MILF’ to describe contestant Melanie Masson.

The row started after Tulisa praised Melanie’s rendition of Paloma Faith’s Never Tear Us Apart, telling her “You are in full MILF mode!?

Many viewers expressed their bafflement with the need for an apology and even Melanie weighed in too, thanking Tulisa and later saying: “Have to admit, loved the MILF comment!?
