Tulisa has been bailed until October in relation to the accusation she introduced an undercover reporter to an alleged drug dealer.

The former X Factor judge was arrested and bailed in June on suspicion of alleged involvement in supplying Class A drugs following the newspaper sting. Tulisa had been due to answer bail today but has been told she will not have to return until October.

The 25-year-old singer was arrested alongside a 35-year-old friend, Mike GLC. Although she hasn't publicly spoken on the arrest, he claimed they were innocent while speaking outside the police station earlier this year.

News of Tulisa's moved bail date came on the same day she announced plans to release her debut novel in September.

The 'Young' star has penned a book called Sky about a young girl's rise to fame.

A statement from her publishing house said: "Glamorous, confident and beautiful, only the very closest to her know the price she has paid. Gripping, passionate, powerful and raw, this is a novel of heartbreak and tragedy, hard work and hard knocks, courage and survival."It is the story of a young woman destined for stardom, who never gave up. No matter what. Tulisa's debut novel is impossible to put down. And impossible to forget."
