Oh wow, it was true.
About a month ago a pesky source came forward and claimed that they had heard X Factor’s Stevi Ritchie bragging to his new bezzie, Simon Cowell, and actual Louis Tomlinson from One Direction about doing the dirty with fellow contestant Chloe Jasmine.
Obvz we all thought this was a story that was just a little bit too far-fetched to be true, but as it happens Chloe has now come forward and confirmed that she DID cheat on her boyfriend with this year’s novelty act, and she’s not ashamed to say it.
The 24-year-old told The Sun earlier today: “Stevi’s a great guy. Our romance happened organically – we were talking about spiritual plains and then we kissed.
“It was very innocent. But to me, love should be unconditional. I made a mistake. You should be able to make a mistake and be forgiven.”
The mistake she is referring to is of course going behind her boyfriend’s back and lying about it, leading to the duo’s eventual split.
However, Chloe’s head is still firmly held high: “I’m not ashamed of what I did because I believe it was part of God’s divine plan.
“It probably didn’t help that I didn’t tell Craig straight away, but I didn’t really have a chance to.”
Stevi was famously gutted when he discovered that Chloe was actually seeing somebody when they did the dirty, with Simon Cowell being on hand to dish out some bro advice and set the 34-year-old up with a selection of ACTUAL single ladies.
Stevi’s explained: “Simon is going to set me up with five ladies apparently. He’s trying to set me up with his PA. He’s pimping me out but I don’t mind.”
PIMP. HIM. OUT. We can’t.
He added: “I don’t know who the rest are but I doubt they would be below his standards. Simon said that Chloe was too tall for me and not to worry about her.”
Fair enough, she was rather leggy.
Not to mention slightly cray-cray.
However, rather then letting the discussion reach its natural end, Stevi continued to dig and conjure up some rather vomtastic images as he shared some more details about his sex life, adding: “I have a high sex drive for a 34-year-old.
“I think it’s because I missed out when I was younger. I didn’t lose my virginity until I was 21.”
Erm, okay Stevi – We think we’ve heard all that we need to know about your bedroom antics, thanks.
Following last night’s devastating elimination from the show, Stevi exclusively told us to forget the music and the ladies, he’d only auditioned to meet his new best mate, Si.
Speaking to Yahoo Celebrity, Stevi explained: “I entered, genuine reason, and Simon can vouch for me because I said this during our infamous Harvester meal.
“I said to him ‘I came on for you Simon’. I genuinely wanted to meet Simon because I love the guy. I idolise him.
“So when he came back I was like ‘let’s do this for a laugh, I could meet Simon, I could not’. But never in a million years did I think I’d make it to the live shows let alone week 7 of 10.
“I knew I wasn’t going to win in a million years. I was the underdog throughout. I was happy to be last wildcard standing.”
As for whether he reckons he’ll be landing a lucrative recording contract, Stevi is somewhat pragmatic about his chances.
“I’ll be honest with you, the chances of getting a record deal are very steep,” he admitted.
“I’d love to [have one] but my album would probably end up in a 99p bargain bin at Sainsburys.”
Erm… Well… You said it Stevi…
