The 'Young' star admits she was told Christian Grey would be her ideal man.

Tulisa Contostavlos has revealed that she was not shocked by any of the material in the popular adult novel Fifty Shades Of Grey because she had already "imagined" everything that happened in the book.

The 'Live It Up' star was spotted with a copy of the publication when she was at an airport recently and told Capitalfm.com in an exclusive webchat that she was recommended it from a friend who though the lead character would be her "ideal" man.

"The honest truth is my make-up artist recommended it to me because obviously we have conversations about relationships or guys and girls and she said to me you have to read this book because your dream man is Mr Grey," she admitted.

"So then I read the book and I was like 'Oh my god this is brilliant' but you know some women read it and were a bit shocked…. I'd already imagined all of that in my head before I read the book so it wasn't that shocking to me."

The X Factor star, who was seen on screen with Rita Ora during the London auditions of the music reality show last night, also recently revealed that she would love to team up with British rapper Tinie Tempah.

The N-Dubz star also told Capital that she found the treatment of Cher Lloyd at last weekend's V Festival 2012 a form of "adult bullying" after the singer was bottled on stage.
