An X Factor contestant was asked to leave the show after her porn star career was uncovered.

Busty blonde Becky Constantinou managed to get through three rounds of the singing contest, and was all set to perform in front of judges Simon Cowell, Rita Ora, Nick Grimshaw and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini at Wembley.

However a security guard rumbled her naughty past, recognising her as kinky alter ego Brooklyn Blue.

“The guard came up to me with a knowing smile and said, ‘I know you from somewhere, you’re that Brooklyn girl,'" she recalled to British newspaper The Sun.

"A few days later I got a call from the show makers asking if I’d done any modelling and my stage names. It was clear I’d been grassed up, but I did my best to dodge the questions. I then had a long think and decided to come clean in an email.

“They phoned me back to say I’m out. I’m devastated.”

The 24-year-old previously dated former TOWIE star Kirk Norcross, and says she fully understands that The X Factor is wholesome weekend TV viewing.

However Becky finds it unfair that her sex career should stop her singing dreams.

“I know X Factor is a family show, but porn shouldn’t define who I am. I was never going to put on a sex show for Simon," she moaned.

The X Factor has never been immune to scandal, with previous singer Frankie Cocozza booted off the show in 2011 after bragging about taking cocaine.

And last year eight-piece boyband Stereo Kicks were rocked with drug stories and leaked nude photos.
