Tulisa Contostavlos is set to star in a new documentary about her recent drugs trial.

Tulisa walked free from Southwark Crown Court yesterday (21 July) after her trial collapsed and the judge threw the case out.

It has now been confirmed that she will appear in a one-off TV show, after the cameras followed every twist and turn from her arrest, preliminary hearings and trial to the collapse of the trial and the aftermath.

In all, the documentary has taken one year to film and it will air on BBC Three next Monday night (28 July) at 10pm.

The programme is reportedly called 'Tulisa: The Price Of Fame' and the former X Factor judge is said to be hoping it will show "the real her".

Tulisa breathed a big sigh of relief yesterday following the collapse of her court case. She had denied one count of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs following a newspaper sting.

The jury were dismissed after the judge presiding in the case said there were "strong grounds to believe" that the undercover reporter at the centre of the trial - a prosecution witness - had "lied" during a pre-trial hearing.

Reading a statement, Tulisa said: "Let me be perfectly clear. I have never dealt drugs and never been involved in taking or dealing cocaine.

"This whole case was a horrific and disgusting entrapment by Mazher Mahmood and the Sun on Sunday newspaper." The case of the alleged drug dealer was also dismissed.

Last night, Tulisa tweeted: "Thank you to everyone for your amazing messages of support today x."
