The X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has revealed how she and One Direction star Niall Horan pretend to be brother and sister when they go out together. Tulisa also admitted that they put on fake accents and use false names to prevent being recognised.
Contostavlos recalled this year’s V Festival, “We had such a good time. We were dressed in our hoodies and sunglasses, walking around the crowd. And because we're both blonde and the same height we pretended to be brother and sister!”
She added, “The second people walk past and say, 'Is that...?" we'd start being really loud, shouting at each other in northern accents like, 'What have you done with me ciggies?' or 'Pass us that bloody pint, if our mother was here now she'd blooming kill us! Aahh, come on Chez!'”
Tulisa continued, "Tom and Chez are our nicknames when we get together and people look at us like, 'Oh no, that can't be them...' because we're talking in these really loud northern accents. Now I've given it away! We'll have to change it. Now we'll pretend to be from Liverpool.”
Tulisa Contostavlos regularly changes the colour of her hair, which is also a ploy to prevent being recognised by passers by in the street.
