‘Up to 6 lines of coke a day’

Now (UK) - - COVER STORY -

The singer ad­mits to snort­ing up to six lines of coke a day dur­ing her time as a judge on The X Fac­tor.

‘I was so low that two weeks into film­ing The X Fac­tor I’d started us­ing co­caine to get me through the run of the show… to get me through liv­ing with Stephen,’ she ex­plains.

‘It numbed my pain. It lifted me up enough to for­get about ev­ery­thing.’

Al­though she didn’t take any drugs dur­ing the show, as soon as film­ing fin­ished, ‘the co­caine would come back out of my bag and up into my nose.’

Her drug habit led to fur­ther is­sues, with Mel re­veal­ing,

‘I was per­ma­nently anx­ious and on the edge.’
