X Factor hopeful Lorna Simpson has been left mortified after it emerged she romped naked in a low-budget gangster film called Hood Loyalty.
The movie features Lorna – one of Sharon Osbourne’s Overs – going for it with co-star Jeremiah Kirlew, who also wrote the 42-minute film.
Lorna used the fake name Harmony Gordon, and got paid just £150 to star in the movie, which went straight to YouTube.
The 26-year-old told The Sun that the footage — shot in April and put up last month — made her “skin crawl”.
She said: “I’m so ashamed I took part. It wasn’t even lots of money, I just thought it would help my career.
“We weren’t actually having sex. It was just acting. I didn’t realise it would be explicit, but by the time we came to film the scenes it was too late for me to back out.
“I wish I’d never done it. I hope people won’t judge me. I really want to be a singer and I’m so grateful Sharon Osbourne has put her faith in me.”
Lorna’s cousin Lauren added last night: “She begged the guys who made it not to put it online but instead they put it up out of spite.
“She won’t let it affect her. X Factor has brought out the best in her.”
