X Factor reject Chloe Mafia has signed up to star in the upcoming series of Celebrity Big Brother.
The 24-year-old, who was famously kicked off the ITV singing show in 2010 due to her behaviour, has put her troubled past behind her in recent years in favour of an extravagant jet set lifestyle that involves her travelling the world in private jets and modelling for Playboy.
The brunette beauty is being paid a lot to take part on the show
Last night an insider told The Sun Online: "Chloe was one of the X Factor's most controversial ever contestants when she appeared on the show, but when she was booted off people thought she would just fade away.
"In fact she went out to the US and made an absolute fortune. She has become a bit of a star on the last few years and CBB has to fork out a lot of money to get her in the house.
"They know she can be absolutely outrageous and won't hold back in any way. She speaks her mind and will not take abuse from anyone. She is going to be an explosive housemate and will make for amazing viewing."
Back in 2010 the Wakefield born wannabe lost her place on the X factor after a bungled boot camp audition following a night of partying.
The mum-of -one's appearances on the show led to numerous details of her private life hitting the headlines – including the fact she was working as a £160-an-hour prostitute.
It later emerged she was still selling sex while on the show — allegedly using her TV fame to up her prices.
Despite denying being a sex worker, the perma-tanned hopeful was forced to admit to taking cocaine after a video emerged of her snorting the drug.
Since her disastrous appearance on the X Factor Chloe – who now goes by the surname Khan – has turned her life around and built up a million-pound business.
The brunette beauty, who became a parent age 17 and was arrested 140 times in her youth, made her cash webcamming – which involves strangers paying to watch and chat with girls live online.
She now employs 50 girls and makes around £1 million a year.
Speaking about her incredible transformation, she told The Sun: “My lifestyle is pretty incredible now — it’s mansions and private jets and everything else that I could only imagine when I was younger.
“I just had to make a life for myself because I knew the life I had in Wakefield was no life at all.
“I didn’t know how to get out but I just knew that I wanted to.
“When I went on the show, I didn’t think I was a singer, but I just wanted to try anything. It was desperation, I just wanted to get away.
“At the time it was a nightmare but I am glad I went through it. It’s like I’m watching somebody else when I see clips of myself. And when I watch them, it reminds me that is the opposite of what I want to be. I’ve left all the negativity behind and now I’m looking to the future.”
She is currently single after splitting from boyfriend John Gray - the 58-year-old founder of Spearmint Rhino.
Recently, Chloe told her fans that she believed she had been approached by a man who described himself as being from the Illuminati, the shadowy group of media elite who apparently run Hollywood.
