Celebrity Big Brother housemate Paula Hamilton reportedly failed psychiatric tests to appear on the show three years ago, according to a former crew member. The former model and actress entered the famous house during last night's premiere wearing a bizarre outfit and mistaking fellow contestant Ryan Moloney as somebody working on the show.
Jo Hemmings, who worked on every series of the show when it was on Channel 4, vented her anger at the model's inclusion on Twitter, saying, "Paula Hamilton - because sending an alcoholic who failed her C4 psych tests three years ago is SUCH a good idea...At the risk of sounding like a killjoy, it's a seriously irresponsible decision." At the behest of jockey Frankie Dettori and X Factor star Rylan Clark, Paula was immediately sent to the "basement," where half of the celebrities will remain in the cold and damp until further notice. Hemmings continued, "Paula Hamilton in basement? I was going to give her 48 hours in the house, pre meltdown. Much less now. She shouldn't be there at all!" before claiming the model has "way more problems than Jasmine Lennard," who behaved strangely during the last series.
Hamilton was joined in the basement by Neil 'Razor' Ruddock, Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, Ryan Moloney but sure enough, she was soon moved upstairs to the luxury accommodation after becoming unwell. A show insider told The Independent, "After receiving advice from the Big Brother doctor, the decision was taken to move our former supermodel from the dank CBB basement to the glorious world above. She is a new luxury housemate. It's a real rags to riches story."
So, the newest series of the show that managed to die a hard death only to be sadly revived like a second Frankenstein's monster, rehashed from the original - more nuts and bolts and scars than can be counted, and probably scarier - has returned. That's right, Celebrity Big Brother is back with a new cohort of desperate celebrities whose own careers have failed and are willing to do anything to regain the spotlight, or a spot of extra cash.
So, here's the tragic lineup for this year:
