Speaking about her criminal background, Alexis said: ‘I know it sounds bad but being arrested for drugs isn’t that unusual where I’m from.

‘I had no idea about other things he’d done. I was in love and I just wanted to help him.

‘On my sixth visit I brought drugs with me to prison. I knew it was wrong.

‘As I walked up to the prison, my heart was racing, I had a million different things going through my head.

‘I was absolutely terrified when I walked into the prison. They did a body search but I’d hidden it in my bra so they didn’t find it.’

Alexis began dating Oshin in 2012 after being introduced by mutual pals, but had no idea he was embroiled in a gangland drugs war.

He was jailed for three-and-a-half years for drug offences, but Alexis stuck by him, regularly visiting him behind bars before she was caught smuggling in cannabis by guards.

Following her arrest, and subsequent community service, she ended the relationship but later found out the thug had been jailed for 22 years for attempted murder, possession of a firearm and GBH with intent, from an incident dating back to 2011.

Oshin shot the victim in the neck with a machine gun.

Alexis spoke about her brush with the law after entering BGT in a bid to become a pop star.

The girlband, also featuring Ebony Cantwell and Renetta Eagle, impressed the judges with their version of Kiki Dee’s I Got The Music I Me, sparking Alesha’s comparisons with her own band Mis-Teeq.

Alexis’ secret past has come to light as she returned to the E4 series this week with new partner Ant Poole following the pair’s disastrous marriages to Jordon Mundell and Nikita Jasmine.

Their comeback shocked fellow newlyweds, particularly Megan Wolfe who had an affair with Alexis’ ex Jordon during the early stages of the show.

However, despite striking up a connection on their first meeting – triggering their bid to re-enter the show as a couple – Alexis and Ant have struggled to bond further.

Speaking during the commitment ceremony on Wednesday’s show, Alexis said: ‘I’m comfortable around him, but we haven’t even had our first kiss yet.

‘It does make me question myself. Does he fancy me?’

An E4 spokesman declined to comment.
