She made her first appearance at London's Southwark Crown Court accused of brokering a cocaine deal and was told that her trial is expected to take place on July 14.

The N-Dubz star is charged with helping an undercover reporter obtain 13.9g (0.5oz) of the Class A drug for £860.

Dressed in a black jacket and skirt, she appeared alongside rapper Mike GLC, also known as Michael Coombs, 35, for a 10-minute preliminary hearing.

The pair spoke only to confirm their names and say that they understood the current timetable.

There will also be a case management hearing on March 27.

Meanwhile, the former X Factor judge has just put her plush mansion up for sale, despite having owned it for just 11 months.
