The pair had a laugh fooling revellers at V Festival

Tulisa Contostavlos has revealed that she and One Direction star Niall Horan pretended to be siblings when they hung out together at V Festival this summer.

The pair realised they looked similar as Tulisa had recently dyed her hair the same colour as Niall‘s and decided to disguise themselves to avoid being recognised.

‘We had such a good time. We were dressed in our hoodies and sunglasses, walking around the crowd,’ says Tulisa, 24.

‘Because we’re both blond and the same height we pretended to be brother and sister!’

Tulisa and Niall, 19, even gave each other fake names to try to fool other revellers at the festival in Chelmsford, Essex.

‘The second people walk past and say “Is that…?” we’d start being really loud, shouting at each other in northern accents,’ Tulisa tells We Love Pop.

Tom and Chez are our nicknames when we get together and people look at us like “Oh no, that can’t be them…”‘
