She won hearts around Australia when she auditioned in full army uniform on 2016 season of The Voice.
But now Crissy Ashcroft is caught up in a drama surrounding the Australian Invictus Games team.
According to 9News, members of the 2017 training squad are considering boycotting the sports competition if the singer remains an ambassador.
Speaking with the publication, a former member revealed they had started a campaign urging veterans and military to email the games’ CEO Patrick Kidd and request that Ashcroft be forced to stand down from the role.
"We all think this is disgusting,” the source said.
“I have already had athletes speaking to me in disgust and having to get themselves mental help because they are so frustrated.”
"We think about our military brothers and sisters who have died in service to this nation, not just this war but all wars. She makes a mockery of it and to have her represent us is a disgrace and even worse have AIMG even think of keeping her."
This follows the explosive allegations made last week to Nine that Ashcroft allegedly 'lied' about being left with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) following her deployment to Afghanistan in 2009.
Despite stating during her time on the show that she’d witnessed things she could never “unsee” unnamed former colleagues came forward to reveal that the 50-year-old had never been in combat during her time in the military, and was in fact working as a finance clerk.
“It’s absolute garbage because female service people do not fight outside the wire, especially in operational systems like that,” an officer within the Special Operations Task Group who served with Ashcroft told Nine.com.au.
"I know intimately what her roles and responsibilities were. Finance clerk, that's it,” the source continued.
“She would sit in the pay office and she would process people's forms and enter that stuff into Microsoft excel."
However, Ashcroft took to Facebook to hit back at the shock claims over the weekend, confirming that while her role in the army was a sedentary one, the experience was still “confronting” and that's how she developed the condition.
"Despite all my training I felt terrified and anxious. I felt, and still feel, that the very real threat of being attacked was there 100 percent of the time,” she wrote.
"From my deployment I have experiences, feelings, stressors and mental anguish that will unfortunately stay with me for life.”
The news comes just one day after Prince Harry touched down in Sydney for a whirlwind trip to promote the 2018 Invictus Games.
The young royal founded the competition four years ago in an effort to help bring together men and women from 17 nations who have been injured whilst serving their countries.
