Nadia Sawalha, 50

Where do I know that face from?

Nadia is a British actress and TV presenter, best known for playing Annie Palmer in EastEnders in the late Nineties. She was a regular panellist on Loose Women and won Celebrity MasterChef in 2007.

Why Celebrity Big Brother?

Nadia simply wants to have a good time, and reckons the reality show will be good fun. She think she’ll fit in just fine as her family are “weirdos and nutters”.

What can we expect?

Nadia finds it tricky to hide when she doesn’t like someone and refuses to accept people who are not kind. As a chat show panellist, she has plenty of opinions, and describes herself as “feisty but fair”.

Odds of winning?

Nadia is currently one of the favourites to win Celebrity Big Brother, with Ladbrokes placing her odds of winning at 6/1, just behind TV presenter Keith Chegwin.
