Dappy admits naked photo leak ploy
Dappy has admitted to his Celebrity Big Brother housemates that he leaked a naked snap of himself in an effort to get to number one in the charts.
The former N-Dubz star is a contestant in this year's Channel 5 show, and during a task where the housemates had to explain why they were famous, he made the shock confession.
According to the Daily Mirror, he said: "Midweek it was at number three - number four and my manager said, 'mate, we're going to have to do something so by Sunday it gets to number one'."
He continued that he took inspiration from other stars' naked selfies and said: "I made it out as if my girlfriend took it - released it.
"It went in every newspaper and magazine... and by Sunday I was number one by miles."
