London, April 25 (ANI): Britain's Got Talent's topless fire-eater has revealed that she used to work as a hardcore porn star.
Millions of viewers of the reality show were left shocked when they watched Tia Brodie running flames across her naked body, her modesty protected by just two tiny nipple covers.
And Brodie even missed her own appearance on the prime time family show - she was busy stripping in a seedy pub with blacked-out windows.
"There was a time when I did the more hardcore stuff," News of the World quoted her as telling the reporters.
"The money was better but I stopped getting a lot of work when I decided I no longer wanted to open my legs for the cameras. I used to do a lot of that stuff," she added.
The 33-year-old, who had surgery to boost her 30DD boobs to 30FF, shot for her hardcore movies in Hollywood, including one with porn legend Ron Jeremy.
She became a lapdancer in her early 20s before contacting an adult film agency in 2005.
Brodie paid for her own flight and rented a house at 600-pound-a-month with five other female porn stars.
While the other girls filmed a movie a day, Brodie chose to have sex only with girls at first before making three hardcore flicks with men, including the one with Jeremy.
"Being in porn was never a full-time job. My career was really an adult entertainer in the dance scene," she said.
"I have done quite a lot of solo porn - it's quicker to film. But with regards to the boy/girl stuff I was very fussy with who I worked with and that's why I didn't do many movies. I picked the people I wanted to work with," she added. (ANI)
