Tinie Tempah Joins The X Factor

The rapper has been signed up to appear on this year's show.

Tinie Tempah has agreed to help mentor the acts on The X Factor after being approached by producers and judges Tulisa and Gary Barlow.

Tinie is rumoured to be working with Take That's Gary on a charity single, and he's also mates with the feisty N-Dubz singer.

"Tulisa knows Tinie really well and would love for him to join her with the contestants once they are through bootcamp," a source revealed.

The 'Pass Out' star will reportedly be helping out during the "judges houses" phase of the programme when finalists are selected for the live shows, but it's not yet known if he'll be helping out Tulisa or Gary.

"(Tinie) knows the show is huge and realised it would be great for his profile," the source told The Sun.

"He has a few things to wriggle out of but is determined to be involved."
