Katie Waissel's porn star grandmother has defended her prostitution career and declared: "It gives me great satisfaction."

In an interview with The Sun, the X Factor wannabe's gran Sheila Vogel-Coupe, who is 81, was defiant about her decision to sell sex.

She said she gave up a voluntary job little over a week ago to concentrate more fully on prostitution, but has been offering her services since stumbling across an escort agency online two years ago. Her family said yesterday they were "completely shocked" after learning about her "immoral activities".

And Katie's sister Natalie Davis said the family "disassociate ourselves wholly" from her activities.

But Sheila told The Sun today: "I work as a prostitute because I love it. It gives me great satisfaction and keeps me young."

She said she could continue doing it for years and has had clients as young as 23. "I'm not cheap and common and what I'm dong is not cheap and common.

"I'm the sort of person who will have a go at anything. I'm not afraid. I've done bungee jumping and all sorts," she added.

Sheila has taken on the services of PR guru Max Clifford since revelations about her life as a prostitute were made by a Sunday newspaper.

After the revelation of her sex career, Sheila said her X Factor star granddaughter Katie screamed at her over the phone. "She thinks I heaped shame on them," the octogenarian said.

Katie put her family problems behind her last night as she joined other X Factor contestants at a London fashion show for Very.co.uk. She and Cher Lloyd were seen giggling as they chatted and watched the Christmas Catwalk Show at Victoria House in Bloomsbury.
