Dappy Slams The X Factor Following Tulisa's Little Mix Victory

The 'No Regrets' singer took a shot at the ITV reality show at his solo concert claiming it isn't what fame should be about.

Dappy hit out at ITV1's The X Factor during a recent gig in Manchester just hours after his N-Dubz bandmate Tulisa won the show with her act.

The 'I Need You' singer performed a 25-minute solo set at the Academy 2 on Sunday (11th December) and first congratulated his cousin for her win with girl band Little Mix, before going on to seemingly slam the reality series.

"This is what fame is, not standing for hours outside to audition for X Factor!" Dappy reportedly told the Manchester crowd. "F**k Simon Cowell!"

Former The X Factor act One Direction recently said they are keen to work with Dappy after "falling in love" with his solo material.

Dappy is expected to release his second single 'Rockstar' featuring Queen guitarist Brian May sometime in the near future, while his debut solo album is due out in April 2012.

The N-Dubz star launched his solo career in September with the Vodafone Big Top Forty number one single 'No Regrets'.
