Saint Lucia (October 2, 2012) – As the 2012 X Factor reaches its final stages, the stunning Caribbean island of Saint Lucia has been the setting for judge Tulisa Contostavlos’ X Factor House.  The island hosted Tulisa and the girls group, along with the girls’ mentor, rapper Tinie Tempah, and presenters Dermot O’Leary and Caroline Flack, host of the Xtra Factor.   

During their stay, Caroline and the girls learnt how to make chocolate at The Boucan ‘Tree to Bar Experience’ by Hotel Chocolat; Tulisa tried cocktails at Jade Mountain; and the girls tasted the Saint Lucian delicacy of whilks at Anse Chastanet. Meanwhile Tinie enjoyed a spot of jet skiing in Saint Lucia’s crystal clear waters.
