Former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos must wait more than a month to discover the outcome of her trial over claims she assaulted a celebrity blogger.

Writer Savvas Morgan claims he suffered swelling to his eye after an alleged incident involving the 25-year-old at the V-Festival in Chelmsford, Essex, last year.

N-Dubz star Tulisa denies the assault but her and her assistant Gareth Varey, who faces the same charge, must wait until July 2 for the verdict after a judge adjourned the case so that further witnesses can be called.
