Dappy has drawn a line under a cash dispute with the taxman.

HM Revenue and Customs has withdrawn a bankruptcy petition against the N-Dubz singer and Celebrity Big Brother contestant at a hearing in the High Court in London.

An official from HMRC told a judge that a tax debt had been paid.

He said after the hearing that rapper Dappy had owed around £140,000.

Dappy was listed as "Contostavlos A.K.A Dappy C" in a list of bankruptcy hearings before the judge - Deputy Registrar John Briggs.
