One of the final 32 contestants on The X Factor 2011 worked a £150 an hour escort girl, it has been claimed this week. According to The People, the singer was "chuffed" with her job, and enjoyed the lifestyle.
Chess Lee - one third of group The Lovettes - was seen making it through to judges' houses with Tulisa on Sunday night's show.
This weekend we'll see whether the trio have made it through to the live shows, as the eight groups battle for a place in the final 16.
If the group have made it then their future could be in doubt following the reports. A source revealed "Chess wasn't ashamed to admit what she was doing. In fact, she was actually pretty chuffed with it.
"She thought it was a compliment that she was pretty enough to do it and enjoyed the lifestyle she was able to lead as a result of the cash she earned."
The source added: "Chess enjoyed it. She would boast about how all the men liked her because she was so pretty."
It comes just a week after reports that favourite Lascel Wood had filmed a porn video of himself taking part in a sexual act, which was then sold online. The 20-year-old was axed at bootcamp on Sunday.
"First there was the news about Lascel," another source explained, "Now we have another hopeful with a secret past. The judges wouldn't expect one of their finalists, if she gets that far, to be involved in anything like this."
There was controversy on last year's show when it was reported that hopeful Chloe Mafia had worked as a prostitute before trying out for the show. She however denied the claims, saying her work only involved promoting clubs and companies.
