Rap songstress and X-Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos could hardly have looked happier on a recent trip to the Maldives with N-Dubz beau Fazer as she dazzled in diamond earrings.

The 23-year-old girl-next-door hung her arms around her boyfriend’s neck as they splashed about in the deep blue sea, with her diamond earrings sparkling under the warm sun.

Although the pair had remained coy about their relationship in the past, it seemed they were not fazed by photographers, who snapped them in loving poses as they trailed the white sand beach.

Women in search of online jewellery may be inspired by Tulisa’s accessory choices, as she also wore a bangle on her wrist.

Tulisa came under criticism on last season’s The X-factor after she described contestant Misha B as a bully.

The controversy did little to damage her protégées Little Mix, who went on to win the competition, releasing Damian Rice’s Cannonball as their official debut single.
