Chloe Sims felt she had to become a pole dancer when she was younger so she could support her daughter Madison
Chloe Sims felt she had "no choice" but to become a pole dancer to support her daughter.
The 'Only Way is Essex' star "hated every minute" of dancing for money shortly when her six-year-old daughter Madison was younger, and admits it was the "lowest point" in her life, but she was desperate to raise some cash to pay for the pair to live.
She wrote: "I needed to support my little girl and I felt I had no choice. To this day, none of my family knows what I was doing for money: I was a pole dancer.
"I did what I had to do for my daughter and I hated every minute of it. It was the lowest point of my life: I was completely skint, my landlord was threatening to kick us out and we had nowhere to go."
The 31-year-old brunette was so poor she couldn't afford hot water and had to clothe her little one in two pairs of pyjamas to keep her warm at night.
She added: "I couldn't pay the gas bill, so it got cut."
