X Factor star Lucy Spraggan reveals she was raped by hotel porter while competing on show
She wasn’t, in fact, actually competing at the time of the alleged rape. We’d have noticed, that would be odd even by the standards of that show.
Inbetween competing, around the time of competing, entirely possibly, but while, no.
An X Factor contestant has revealed how she was raped by a hotel porter while competing on the ITV talent show.
Lucy Spraggan, a 31-year-old singer, suddenly dropped out of the show in 2012 citing illness, despite her popularity with both the public and the judges.
Now, 11 years later, the musician has revealed how she had been out at a Mayfair nightclub to celebrate a fellow contestant’s birthday with members of the show’s production team before she was attacked at her hotel.
In an interview with the Guardian to promote her memoir, Process: Finding My Way Through, she said was aged just 20 when she fell unconscious and was escorted back to the hotel by a member of the production team, where a porter offered to help get her to her room.
Fell unconscius after drinking in a nightclub, eh?
