Ms Contostavlos, 25, will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court alongside Michael Coombs, 35, of Velocity Way, Enfield.

The pair were the subject of an undercover investigation by the Sun on Sunday newspaper surrounding an alleged cocaine deal.

They were held on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs after they went to a police station in central London by appointment on June 4.

The newspaper reported half an ounce of cocaine changed hands as a result of the alleged deal carried out at London’s Dorchester Hotel.

Michael Coombs is also known by his rapper name, Mike GLC.
