Britain’s Got Talent hopeful Fabia Cerra has revealed a dark past which has included abuse, mental illness and drug addiction.

The Sunday Mirror reports that Cerra – who left the judges open-mouthed with her raunchy dance routine on Saturday’s show – was at one point so ill that she believed she was the daughter of the Queen’s sister Princess Margaret.

And the 35-year-old also suffered abuse as a child at the hands of her alcoholic mother, became romantically involved with her second cousin and suffered a miscarriage – as well as becoming hooked on drugs.

She also almost died of a superbug while giving birth to her son in hospital,

She tells of her troubled past in her autobiography In Two Minds.

“I know that my breakdowns were brought about by the fact that I had been smoking cannabis…and drinking too much alcohol. Drink and drugs tear families apart,” she said.

However the former disco dancing champion so impressed the panel with her dancing that she won a place in the next round.

“You’re my kind of woman,” Piers Morgan told her. “If I had my way you’d be in the final.”
