"Both have now been bailed pending further inquiries to a date in late July. Searches have been completed at two residential addresses."

The arrest comes just weeks after the singer was confirmed to be departing from The X Factor – with the returning Sharon Osbourne taking her place on the judging panel.

Tulisa is yet to comment on the drug allegations.
