With her petite frame and brunette locks, Ashley Whitelaw made over £15k as a Tulisa Contostavlos lookalike.

But when the former X Factor judge was accused of helping to supply class A drugs to an undercover reporter in a sting set up by a national paper, the jobs fizzled out and Ashley, 20, struggled to make ends meet.

Now, after Tulisa's trial dramatically collapsed last month, Ashley is hoping her career will get back on track.

She says: "When Tulisa was cleared I was overjoyed. I'd made over £15k being her double, but after her arrest I didn't get a single booking. I got a job in a bakery and didn't know where my career was going.

"Now I think she'll be bigger than ever. Her comeback will make me thousands."
