Dappy's time in the Celebrity Big Brother house is obviously bringing out the proud cousin in singer Tulisa Contostavlos.

The former X Factor judge, 25, took to social media yesterday (4 January) to post a childhood snap of herself and her older cousin Dappy - real name Costadinos Contostavlos.

In the archive photo, the Camden-born pair can be seen in a cot, wearing baby vests and sucking dummies looking very cute indeed!

Tulisa, who is a year younger than 26-year-old Dappy, shared the snap after he entered the CBB house on Friday night.

She wrote: "This situation is bringing out the mother hen in me #supportdappy #cbb #babyT&daps."

As babies, they had no idea they were to become famous together after forming hip hop group N-Dubz alongside third member Fazer.

While the cousins have had their public fall-outs in the past, Tulisa is rooting for dad-of-two Dappy on the Channel 5 reality show.

She also tweeted: "Feel like a mum looking through the gates after sending my child 4 his first day at school."
