Tulisa Contostavlos had a very pretty shoulder to cry on after news of her sex tape hit the headlines - Cheryl Cole rushed to offer her advice.

The N-Dubz star was left heartbroken when footage of her performing a sex act on a former boyfriend emerged on the internet.

The singer has revealed the scandal pushed her into a depression and she spent a week sleeping on her bathroom floor.

However, Tulisa reveals she had someone to talk to during those dark times after her X Factor predecessor Cheryl reached out to offer her support.

Tulisa told The Mirror: "I've been in touch with Cheryl. I actually had a really nice text from her after my 'hoo-hah' a couple of weeks ago, offering her support."

But despite their closeness, Tulisa is adamant she is not ready to steal Chezza's 'nation's sweetheart' crown.

She adds: "When people say I'm the new 'nation's sweetheart' I'm like, 'No! That role will always belong to Cheryl!' I've become the nation's little rebel."

The pair's relationship may not stand the test of time, however - especially after Tulisa beat the Geordie beauty to be named FHM's Sexiest Woman in the World.

Cheryl came in second on the annual poll, after topping the countdown in 2009 and 2010.
