An 'X Factor' contestant is set to cause controversy after it was revealed she has previously toured with Tulisa Contostavlos.
23-year-old Jaya auditioned for the show in front of the judge but viewers will be unimpressed to discover she has supported Tulisa's band N-Dubz and has also toured with Tinie Tempah, who is expected to be a guest mentor on the show.
Her website stated: "Jaya has already found her set of celebrity fans in the form of urban pop leaders N-Dubz and Tinie Tempah who both featured on the DJ Remix."
A friend said Jaya auditioned for 'The X Factor' to get "her big break" and added "but viewers and other acts might not take too kindly knowing she has already toured with N-Dubz".
However, insiders from the ITV1 show deny Jaya has had any special treatment.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "She has performed on the same bill as N-Dubz before but Tulisa doesn't know her."
Meanwhile, it has been revealed the final of the 'X Factor' is to be staged outside London for the first time.
The December finale of the show will take place at the 11,000 capacity venue Manchester Central in December.
Judge Louis Walsh said: "Our Live Final is going to be another major event - so the 'X Factor' 2012 has everything. I believe it's going to be our best series yet."
