Court hears Tulisa's conversation with 'Fake Sheikh'

The trial of Tulisa Contostavlos has been played a phone call in which the former X Factor judge is heard saying she could "definitely sort" so-called "white sweets" - apparently slang for cocaine.

The court was played the phone call in which undercover reporter Mazher Mahmood, posing as a film producer, asked: "What about white sweets?"

The former N-Dubz singer was heard replying: "I can definitely sort it. I just need to make some more calls."

Asked what he thought Contostavlos meant by "white sweets", Mr Mahmood said: "That she could supply me with cocaine, no problem."

Earlier Contostavlos told the court that she "did not initiate the supply of drugs" to Mr Mahmood, who is known as the 'Fake Sheikh'.

The trial continues.
