Meanwhile, Tulisa Contostavlos recently lost an appeal against her conviction for assaulting a man at V Festival in 2013.

The pop star and former X Factor judge was found guilty of hitting celebrity blogger Savvas Morgan last year, with a judge now upholding the conviction.

Judge David Radford said Contostavlos had experienced “a lack of self-control” when she struck Morgan. “We find she was not calm, this was a lack of self-control – the reasons, we understand – and for a brief moment, we find that she did strike Mr Morgan, before very speedily the incident was brought to an end,” he said.

Contostavlos was originally fined £200 and ordered to pay a £20 victim surcharge, £100 compensation and £2,700 costs. The verdict came with a ruling that Contostavlos’s sentence was altered. She no longer has to pay £100 compensation to Morgan, and the fine of £200 was changed to a conditional discharge. However, she will now have to pay an additional £1,500 in appeal costs.
