Tulisa Contostavlos lives in a house covered in religious iconography. The way she talks about it – the Mother Mary by her bed, for example – the place sounds more like the home of a devoted granny than Britain’s most famous bad girl. It sounds as though it would make a brilliant, unexpected Through the Keyhole.

We are sitting on a sofa in a photographic studio in east London, ostensibly to discuss her comeback single, a pounding dance anthem called Living Without You that comes complete with a sexy video in which a barely dressed Contostavlos uses handsome young male models as chairs. But talk naturally turns to the year she has just had, and what has got her through it: surprisingly, her faith. Her dramatic fall from grace – from pop star to The X Factor judge to being charged with supplying class-A drugs to an undercover reporter – has been played out like a modern-day parable, with her cast in the role of the fallen angel.

“I’ve always been very spiritual,” she tells me, out of the blue. “I’m probably more religious and spiritual than people know.” She was baptised in the Greek Orthodox church – her father’s religion – but took communion in the Catholic church of her mother. Her faith isn’t a new-found thing – it is the rock on which her whole life has been built. “I like to go to church on my own, to the local church that I’ve gone to since I was a kid. I wait until it is completely empty and light candles. The place I go to has 12 different icons, and I always go to Mother Mary, on the left-hand side, and I just sit there for half an hour and pray.”

Really? My jaw at this point must be sort of slack with amazement.
“Yes, really. It’s so funny, you’re the first person to really ask me about it. I’ve never really talked about it because I know a lot of people aren’t into it, and I don’t want to bore the s— out of people. If they don’t want to hear it, then there’s no point trying to explain it.”

Did she think that it would ruin her image if she admitted to it?
“Yeah. It’s like a personal thing.” She shifts uncomfortably on the sofa. “But if a funeral car goes past me, or I see flowers on the side of the road, or I have a bad thought, I make the sign of the cross.” Which she does now, an embarrassed smile on her face.
For all of her adult life, and a great deal of her childhood too, Tulisa Contostavlos has played the role of the urban hoodlum, the bad girl done good. It is a part she has played with such aplomb that the lines between reality and fantasy have often been blurred, as was witnessed when the bad girl done good did bad again, allegedly setting up a cocaine deal for the so-called Fake Sheikh, Mazher Mahmood. The story, which was published in The Sun on Sunday in 2013, led to her losing her job on The X Factor panel and attempting suicide as she faced up to the possibility of prison. It was only when the judge found he had the “clearest evidence” that Mahmood had told a “knowing lie” in a pre-trial hearing that the case was thrown out, but for Contostavlos the damage was already done.

By her own admission, Tulisa Contostavlos has had the most turbulent year of her life. Last June the singer and former X Factor judge found herself the subject of a drugs sting by The Sun’s ‘Fake Sheikh’, Mazher Mahmood, which led to her being front page news and later arrested for ‘being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs. She was then charged.

And in this week’s Grazia, Tulisa, who is about to release her first single since the sting, Living Without You, tells Lottie Lumsden about how things got so bad that she contemplated suicide, before going on to clear her name, and finally finding the confidence to relaunch her career. ‘It has been the worst year of my life… so being back is the best feeling ever,’ says Tulisa. ‘People forgot throughout that year who I was and what I did. They thought I was just this public abuse figure. I’m a musician, I always was a musician, and now I’ve got a song on the radio, so I’m definitely a musician.’ She adds, ‘There is nothing right now that can take me off my high. You either fall or you fight – and I chose to fight. I’m ready for anything now.’

Tulisa admits that following her arrest she started suffering from panic attacks. ‘I had little breakdowns and depression that would last for three days. I also started suffering from panic attacks. I used to get them when I was really young but they came back. I’d be out having a drink and then I wouldn’t be able to breathe, would freak out and I’d feel like my heart was going to stop.’

Six months after her arrest, Tulisa was formally charged by police, and she tried to commit suicide. ‘I didn’t think I could hack being torn apart in court,’ she explains. ‘That night was horrific. I don’t know where my head was. I’d already gone through six months of it and I was told I’d have to wait another six months for the trial where I could be sent to prison for eight months.

‘It just hit me that night and I put myself in a stupid headspace and luckily Gareth found me… I’d taken a load of pills and Gareth rang the ambulance. It was, thank God, a failed attempt.’

This was a turning point for Tulisa. ‘The next day I woke up and said to Gareth, “Book me a studio session now.”’ she says. ‘You have to break yourself down to rebuild yourself stronger.’

Thankfully in July it emerged that Mahmood might have lied in a pre-trial statement and might have been ‘manipulating evidence’. The case was thrown out of court. And ever since Tulisa has been getting her life back on track, starting with an appearance on X Factor with Louis Walsh at the Judges’ Houses stage. Her appearance was a resounding success but her supposed ‘new face’ prompted speculation she might have had plastic surgery.

‘I looked really gaunt from the stress [of the trial]. I wanted to perk myself up a bit and I’d always wanted my lips done,’ she says. ‘But with the cheeks I didn’t know that I suffered from water retention and the first thing that fillers do is draw water to the area, so it started swelling up. The worst thing is that it would happen in the morning, so I would wake up like a blow fish when I was going to court. I’ve been having collagen waves to take them down. I haven’t had surgery though. If I had, I’d just say. What’s the point in lying?’
