Singer Tulisa has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving after crashing her Ferrari in north London on Thursday night (10 September). The former X Factor judge was held by police after her car collided with a Saab outside Southgate tube station.

The 27-year-old singer was breathalysed at the scene and taken to a police station in east London. A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Police were called shortly before midnight on Thursday September 10 to outside Southgate Underground Station following reports of two cars in collision. Officers and the London Fire Brigade attended. There were no reported injuries. One of the drivers, a 27-year-old woman, was arrested on suspicion of drink driving and was taken to an east London police station."

Last year, the star revealed she was driven to the brink of suicide when she found out she was to be charged with conspiring to supply drugs. Tulisa, who has previously admitted to struggling with depression, made the confession in her documentary, Tulisa: The Price of Fame.

In July 2014 Tulisa's trial for brokering a cocaine deal collapsed when a judge threw out the case after revealing there were "strong grounds" to believe undercover Sun reporter Mazher Mahmood, famously known as the 'Fake Sheikh', had lied under oath.

"This whole case was a horrific and disgusting entrapment by Mazher Mahmood and the Sun on Sunday newspaper," Contostavlos said after she was cleared of all charges. "As someone who has ruined my life for the last year, I strongly believe that this type of entrapment should not be allowed to happen to anyone."
