N-Dubz star Dappy has hit out at The X Factor during a live performance in Manchester.
The 'No Regrets' star was appearing in the Northern city just days after his bandmate, and cousin, Tulisa helped Little Mix become the first girlband to ever win the show. However, he was in no mood for celebrating a show he sees as being unfair and a shortcut to success.
"This is what fame is," Dappy reportedly said. "Not standing for hours outside to audition for X Factor... Adding: "F**k Simon Cowell!"
Dappy has criticised The X Factor in the past despite admitting he wanted to help Tulisa select her finalists at the Judges Houses stage of the competition.
