‘Up to 6 lines of coke a day’
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.’
