Tulisa Contostavlos has admitted that she "can't wait" to give her cousin Dappy a cuddle when he gets out of the Celebrity Big Brother house.

The songstress appears to have been glued to the TV watching her family member and fellow N-Dubz star take part in the hit Channel 5 show and it sounds like she is eager for him to return home soon.

Tulisa is noticeably close to her older cousin Dappy

Earlier today (24 January) Tulisa expressed her love for 26-year-old Dappy by tweeting: "I hate watching my duk daps and not being able to mother him, can't wait to give him a big cuddle when he gets out".

But this isn't the first time the pop singer has referred to herself as the mother hen in the pair's relationship.

When Dappy entered the Celebrity Big Brother house earlier this month, Tulisa likened the experience to a parent sending their child to school for the first time.

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

But while she's been keeping tabs on her older cousin's antics on-screen, Tulisa has also been busy working on some brand new music.

This week she revealed to fans that she is finally back in the recording studio by uploading a photo of a microphone on Instagram.

Tulisa is back to work in the studio

The 25-year-old soon posted another snap, this time of a laptop, and wrote: "Good studio sesh today #studiovibes".

This revived focus on her career comes after Tulisa appeared at Southwark Crown Court on 9 January for a preliminary hearing in relation to her drugs charge trial. She has denied being involved in the supply of drugs.

The trial begins 14 July 2014 - a day after her 26th birthday.
