LONDON - The CEO of 19th Hole Productions Simon Cowell has made it abundantly clear that he has no intention of banning Chloe Mafia from participating in his reality show X-Factor simply because she is a known prostitute.
According to Miss Mafia, she is a professional lady of the evening who makes £160 an hour [$247 U.S.].
Cowell said that several of the X-Factor contestants have personally asked him to remove her from competing on the show.
Simon has firmly said that he will have no part of asking her to drop out of the competition. He said it isn't as if she has hurt someone, robbed a bank, or gone into Buckingham Palace and walked off with an expensive chair.
Cowell said that some of her fellow contestants are simply jealous because she has found a way to make a good living.
Chloe has also appeared on several BBC Three's shows including Snog Marry Avoid, Hey 'ave Ya Seen Me Welly? and most recently the sit-com Blimey I Done Went And Burned Me Muffins Again.
X-Factor's producer Agustus Whittingstall said that he has no problem with Miss Mafia being on the show. The show's host Dermot O'Leary stated that he thinks that Chloe will certainly bring in the 18 to 45 male age group.
In a related story. Queen Elizabeth who has said that she is a fan of X-Factor was asked what she thought about Chloe Mafia. She said that she had not heard about them but that she will certainly call Scotland Yard and have them investigate that particular branch of the mafia.
