We study the general case of controlled quantum teleportation and give analytic expressions for the maximal probabilities of successful controlled teleportation of an unknown qubit via every kind of three-qubit state. We also give an explicit expression for the three-qubit states that can be used as quantum channel for controlled teleportation of an unknown state with unit probability and with unit fidelity. In addition, an exact value of localizable entanglement is determined. We obtain the necessary and sufficient condition that a three-qubit state can be collapsed to an EPR pair by a measurement on one qubit.
