He may have been banned from joining her at judges' houses later this year, but X Factor judge Tulisa wants her N-Dubz bandmate Dappy involved in the show some way. Speaking to The Mirror today, Tulisa said she'd like to see the 24-year-old mentor for one of the groups.
Dappy - real name Costadinos Contostavlos - previously revealed X Factor bosses had banned him from the show, saying: "Tulisa said to me that she begged them to do it.”
“But they knew I would cause a madness.”
His cousin Tulisa however has vowed to get him onto the show somehow.
Speaking in Ibiza this week, Tulisa said: “I want him as a mentor for one of the groups. He will be so funny, out of control. I really want him involved.
“I don’t know if it will happen but it’s something I am fighting for.
"I think all the contestants will love him.”
Dappy previously revealed that he and Tulisa will be performing on the show's live finals in the autumn.
