Tulisa Contostavlos has been re-bailed until early December following her arrest over claims she acted as a go-between in a drug deal.

The former X Factor judge was held along with 35-year-old musician Mike GLC on June 4 after they went to a police station in central London by appointment.

They were due to answer police bail today (Wednesday), and will now return in early December.

The pair were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs after The Sun on Sunday claimed that Tulisa, 25, had introduced a journalist to an alleged supplier.

The tabloid reported that half an ounce of cocaine changed hands as a result of the alleged deal carried out at London's Dorchester Hotel.

Mike GLC, who will also answer bail in late October, has insisted that he and the former N-Dubz singer are innocent.

Speaking outside Belgravia Police Station after their arrests, he said: ''We are innocent. We haven't been charged. 'I am not a drug dealer. I have never sold drugs in my life.''

Tulisa was officially dropped as a judge on the X Factor days before her arrest, with Sharon Osbourne returning to the show in her place.

Today her spokesman declined to comment.
