X Factor judge Louis Walsh and popstar Tulisa looked thrilled to bump into each other at last night's Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Awards with Baileys.

Louis and Tulisa became pals while serving together on the X Factor judging panel for two years and, following Tulisa's departure, remained thick as thieves.

Tulisa flew to Bermuda earlier this year to help Louis pick his contestants for this year's X Factor live shows, while Louis has made no secret of how much he'd love to work with T again.

"I loved having Tulisa back for judges' houses," he told Daily Star earlier this year. "I loved having her back and I absolutely love her. I'm really good friends with her. I adore her.

"She's a great judge, she's a great mentor and she was really honest in Bermuda, she really was. She helped me pick my top three well."

Tulisa looked gorgeous in a monochrome dress.

Last night, the pair were seen chatting, hugging and posing for pictures together before the awards were handed out.

Tulisa looked gorgeous in a monochrome dress that showed her a-mazing legs and golden glow, while keeping her make-up simple and hair tied back in a sleek updo.

It was a night all about X Factor for the pair.
