Feisty Tulisa Contostavlos was never likely to go into hiding after her sex tape shame and she now admits the scandal has made her stronger than ever.
Just a month after the explicit footage hit the web, the defiant X Factor judge has told fans she has no regrets over the incident.
She said: "I could sit all day long saying I wish I'd never done this or met that person but at the end of the day, with the position I'm in, I can't exactly complain.
"Everything's taken me to the place that I'm in and made me the person I am. It just makes you stronger, doesn't it?"
Tulisa's world was shaken when a clip of her performing a sex act on her ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards leaked online, but the N-Dubz singer has well and truly brushed off the controversy - even hinting she has been signed up for another series of The X Factor.
She told Top Of The Pops magazine: "I don't know if I'm allowed to answer. I suppose it doesn't really matter, so let's just say (I've known for) quite a while.
"Would it be cheeky to say I think I did a good enough job to keep my place?"
She is even making plans to branch out into fashion and acting: "I want to bring out another perfume, look into clothing lines and bring out my own brand of stuff, too. I'm not sure yet, but I might also get into cosmetics - and maybe a bit of acting as well."
