Cheeky Tulisa Contostavlos has already been trying to put her new found X Factor fame to good use - by asking one auditionee if he could help sort out a parking ticket she’d received! 23-year-old Tulisa - real name Tula Paulinea Contostavlos - was fined after stopping on a red route.

It was during the final auditions in Liverpool this week that the youngster tried to get out of paying her £60 parking fine after [tag]Deep Dhillon[/tag] auditioned.

"I work in an office... for the traffic enforcement," he told the panel after they asked what he did for a job - to boos from the crowd!

"I've got a bone to pick with you..." Tulisa began to rant at Gurdip. "I was pulled over by the police, I didn't do anything - just random stop and check - and then I got a ticket for stopping in the red route. There was a picture of the police car pulling me over.


"Is that fair?" Tulisa questioned, adding: "I was pulled over by the police?

"Why did I get a ticket?"

A poor Gurdip however wasn't sure what to say as Tulisa continued to try and get out of the fine. "Can you sort it out for me?" the singer cheekily asked. However, sensing she wasn't get anywhere, Tulisa continued with the audition asking what Gurdip was going to sing - which turned out to be Take That's classic 'Back For Good'.

"There were a few notes in that I don't remember writing," Gary joked as Kelly squeaked with laughter.

The result of Gurdip's audition will be broadcast when The Xtra Factor - hosted by Olly Murs and Caroline Flack - returns later this year to ITV2.


The last ever X Factor audtionee on this year's show stunned the panel on Thursday evening with her performance of Katy Perry's 'Firework'. "What a way to end the auditions", Tulisa said.

The X Factor 2011 returns in August.
