Reality star turned bodybuilder Jodie Marsh has revealed that she was offered £10,000 to sleep with an A-list star early in her career – but refused.
Speaking at the launch of new channel TLC, Jodie said that the incident occurred when she was working as a lap dancer at London nightclub Stringfellows.
And she has drawn upon her own experiences for a new documentary on the channel, Jodie Marsh On The Game, in which she takes an in-depth look at the seedy side of the sex industry.
“I was offered money for sex on a regular basis when I worked at Stringfellows,” she said.
“I was offered £10,000 one night to go home and sleep with a very famous customer. Everything about him was gross. I felt sick by the whole thing.”
She added: “My reaction was ‘f*** off mate! Literally, in his face, I just went ‘who the f*** do you think you are?
“I was about 21, 22, and I literally stood in his face and went ‘F*** you! How dare you? I’m a f*****g dancer, I’m not a f*****g prostitute! I was really angry about it.
“I was young, I was feisty and I felt insulted that he’d even asked me. It’s tough when you are working in the sex industry in any form.”
Jodie – who admitted that she wanted to forge a career in documentary-making – saying: “I want to be the new Louis Theroux” – also revealed she has fronted a show in which she examines the effects of steroids.
“I set out to investigate why people take them, what the dangers are – if there are any dangers, or if they are good for you – whatever the case may be,” she explained.
“The conclusion is they are bad for you. I met women and men who are on steroids and every single one of them has the most shocking things to either tell me or show me.”
