Tulisa Contostavlos' N-Dubz stars Dappy and Fazer have been 'banned' from joining the new X Factor judge at the judges' houses stage of the show next month. Dappy told Kiss FM, bosses didn't want the pair on the show because they would "cause madness".
It comes judges days after Fazer said N-Dubz would join Tulisa at judges' houses, and perform on the show.
24-year-old Dappy - cousin to Tulisa - revealed: “Tulisa said to me that she begged them to do it."
But he added: “But they knew I would cause a madness.”
Dappy previously said he was "proud" of Tulisa joining the show, saying: "We are proud of Tulisa Contostavlos becoming a judge on The X Factor. N-Dubz came from nothing, and she is good enough for that big show which means we are good. N-Dubz have made it, yeah!"
