The former boyfriend of X Factor judge Tulisa has auditioned for this year's auditions.

Justin Edwards hit the headlines back in 2012 after a leaked sex tape involving himself and Tulisa hit the web.

The N-Dubz singer sued him for releasing the video and settled in the High Court, with his solicitor admitting: "He [Justin] now realises that his actions were misguided by the bad advice of others, that he displayed terrible judgment by heeding that advice and this has directly caused severe anxiety and distress to Miss Contostavlos and her family."

Now Justin - known as MC Ultra - has tried out for The X Factor 2014.

"When it was suggested [that] I go on the show I started laughing and thought it was a crazy idea," he told The Sun newspaper this week. “Then I just thought, ‘Why not?’”

He added: “It’s an experience, throwing yourself into the lions’ den and finding out if they think I’m any good.”

While we were quite looking forward to seeing Justin face off against Simon Cowell, who had branded him a "scumbag" in support of Tulisa, a spokesperson for The X Factor said there was no chance of it happening.

"Mr Edwards will not be going forward to the judges’ round," they commented.
