Tulisa says an N-Dubz reunion is still on despite bandmate Dappy being found guilty of affray and assault earlier this month.

The singer, who is supporting Ne-Yo on his UK tour in March, told Newsbeat last September that the band had met to talk about getting back together.

Nobody speaks about that. The two years I've done it, both times, I didn't find anything out until a few months before

The 24-year-old said: "Nothing's changed. It's just a case of when and we don't have a time on it yet."

Dappy is due to be sentenced with two other men on 15 February.

It's over a fight which took place at a petrol station in Surrey last year.

The jury convicted Dappy, whose real name is Costadinos Contostavlos, of affray and assault by beating after he spat at a man in an argument.

'Amazing talent'

Meanwhile, it's still unclear if Tulisa will be taking part in this year's X Factor.

Ne-Yo/Tulisa UK tour dates

    • Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle - 6 March
    • Echo Arena, Liverpool - 8
    • Manchester Arena, Manchester - 9

She has been a judge for two years but says they are not usually told if they are taking part until just before the audition process starts in the summer.

"Nobody speaks about that," she said. "The two years I've done it, both times, I didn't find anything out until a few months before.

"But I love the show. I would go back."

The singer will be supporting US R&B star Ne-Yo on his three UK tour dates in March and says she is "really excited about it".

She added: "I've heard so much about him and what a great guy he is and an amazing talent. I'm really excited about being back in arenas again.

"The way that it came about is that we have the same agency and it was just an idea that they came up with and approached me and asked me if I'd like to do it.

"We approached him and asked him if he'd be up for it and he was."
