X Factor Chloe: Career's in tatters
Controversial X Factor flop Chloe Victoria has admitted that her prospects of a pop career were in "tatters" following allegations of drug-taking and prostitution.
Viewers watched this weekend as the 19-year-old, from Wakefield, West Yorkshire, who styles herself Chloe Mafia, failed to get through to the next stage of the show.
Her time on the ITV1 talent show was dogged by controversy with newspaper stories that she worked as a prostitute appearing before she made her first appearance.
And this week pictures were released which seemed to show her taking cocaine.
The teenager, whose real surname is Heald, said she did not regret going on the show but said she had been "set up" and denied being a prostitute.
She told This Morning: "I'm definitely not a prostitute. I've not been paid for sex, I'll never be paid for sex and that's it."
She admitted taking "a couple of lines" of cocaine and said she was "so stupid" to have done it.
She said: "Of course I want to have a career but I think it is in tatters, to be honest, now."
There are now only 32 acts left on the show who will compete in the Judges' Houses round - where they will perform at venues chosen by judges Louis Walsh, Dannii Minogue, Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell.
The 32 will be whittled down to just 12 for the live shows.
