Kelly Rowland ­has threatened to quit The X Factor if she is forced to change acts.

It was reported yesterday that a new twist will see the judges switch categories and mentor new performers.

However, Rowland has admitted that she wouldn't like to see another judge looking after her Girls (Janet Devlin and Misha B) after all the hard work she has already put in.

"I don't want anybody touching my girls," she told the Sunday Mirror. "I'm not giving Misha and Janet up for anyone. I'd walk before I gave them up. Everybody is doing such a good job mentoring their acts. I don't know why they'd do that."

She added: "When Simon gave me the job he liked the fact I stood by my word. He calls me Lippy - Simon likes me because I have a smart mouth. I'm not afraid of him and I respect him.

"We would be electric on the same judging panel, can you imagine? But I love being on a panel with Gary, Louis and Tulisa - despite what people say."

Fellow judge Tulisa Contostavlos recently insisted that she is on good terms with Rowland following their on-screen disagreement over claims Misha B was bullying the other acts.

Speaking of the argument, Rowland explained: "Don't get me wrong, I was very disappointed but we are cool now. Everybody needs to get on with it and move on. I have respect for Tulisa. We are not dissimilar."

Rowland concluded that she believes Misha B has the best chance of making it in America after the show.
