Dappy slams X Factor contestants

N-Dubz singer Dappy has revealed that he isn't a fan of singers who apply for shows like 'The X Factor'.

The rapper has blasted the contestants, saying they don't have to work as hard as other musical acts to enjoy success.

"You're standing in a queue to do an audition and the minute you come out of the queue you're a star - and it's cheating. X Factor is great and people like Leona Lewis are great but other than that it's cheating," he quipped.

"Acts like us struggle for ten whole years. We go to 30 or 40 record labels, all our lives everyone says 'No'. We finally do it by taking every last penny from our pockets to make our videos and slowly create a buzz."
