Former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos is due to go on trial today accused of helping to broker a cocaine deal with an undercover tabloid reporter.
The former N-Dubz star, 26, is charged with helping the Sun on Sunday's Mazher Mahmood, the reporter dubbed the "fake sheikh", land 0.5oz of the Class A drug for £860.
She denies the charge but will be tried at Southwark Crown Court in south London alongside co-defendant Michael Coombs.
The 35-year-old Coombs, also known as rapper Mike GLC, denies a charge of supplying the drug on May 23 last year at London's Dorchester Hotel. Both are on bail.
