One Direction Convert Dappy To X Factor

The N-Dubz rapper has revealed he's now a fan of the show, despite slating it in the past.

As well as supporting his band mate and cousin Tulisa, who is a new judge on the hit show, Dappy has singled out One Direction for praise.

"I simply take my words back...After seeing the new x factor show and hearing the new single from one direction I must say I'm now a fan..." Dappy said on Twitter.

"@officialtulisa your the best ..x factor all the way this time..NaNa xx"

As well as being a fan of The X Factor band's new single 'What Makes You Beautiful', Dappy is happy to see Tulisa doing so well on the show despite in the past saying reality contestants were "cheating" at fame.

"You’re standing in a queue to do an audition and the minute you come out of the queue, you’re a star and it’s cheating," Dappy previously told The Metro.

Dappy's new single 'No Regrets' is due to be released on Sunday 18th September.
