N-Dubz have seen their popularity on the rise, so much so they've been adding new dates to their current tour. The British hip hop group have reportedly put down the increase in interest in them down to member Tulisa Contostavlos' new role on The X Factor.

The show isn't even on the air yet but with the singer having appeared at five audition shows so far, press coverage of the group has helped them gain new fans.

They will now play the Scarborough Open Air Theatre, the biggest open air theatre in Europe, on the back of Tulisa’s new X Factor role, according to The Mirror.

A source said: “Tulisa’s popularity in the X Factor and new-found solo fame have done wonders for the band as whole.”
