Tulisa Contostavlos and Alan Sugar's online war was sparked when the Apprentice businessman tuned in to the new series of X Factor on Saturday night - and he didn't like what he saw.

Alan, 65, tweeted: "Can you tell me who the hell this bird is on X Factor. What has she done?"

He added: "This Tulisa talks nonsense on X Factor, what qualifications does she have to judge singing talent."

X Factor judge Tulisa replied: "@lord_sugar as someone that came from nothing to something maybe u should have more respect for people that have done the same.

"I have grafted from the age of 11 with my band NDUBZ, we wrote & produced all our music, sold 3 platinum albums, 3 sell out tours the last being an arena tour & a No.1 debut solo single!

"So mr lord of judgement... stick to judging the Apprentice & I'll stick to what I know MUSIC. #itsaNOfromme."

She then apologised to her 2,258,202 followers for her outburst: "Soz bout that peeps. But that t*at has been bad mouthing me since last year!"

But Lord Sugar proved he's not intimidated by Tulisa's feisty attitude and was determined to have the last word.

He replied: "Don't insult me by comparing my humble beginnings with yours."

Lord Sugar is known for his snappy, no-nonsense Twitter attitude and is embroiled in an amusing online war with journalist Piers Morgan.

Piers picked up on Alan's latest argument and Tweeted: "Oh dear... @Lord_Sugar getting schooled by @officialtulisa - most amusing."

But Alan retorted: "@piersmorgan shut up... you have as much talent as her."
