As 14 new contestants prepare to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house tonight, it’s time to get to know those expected a little better.

Who? Lauren Goodger, reality TV star.

Where do I know that face from? Lauren rose to fame after appearing in Bafta Award-winning ITV reality show The Only Way is Essex between 2010 and 2012, before departing in series 6.

In January 2013 she took part in the eighth series of Dancing On Ice but finished in 11th place after being eliminated in the second week.

Last year she published an autobiography called Secrets of an Essex Girl.

Why Celebrity Big Brother? Lauren made her name on reality TV so she’s used to being herself on camera.


What can we expect in the house? Lauren has recently called for tougher laws to prohibit revenge porn after a video of her performing a sex act on her ex-boyfriend leaked online, so we could hear more about her views on the subject.

Odds of winning? 9/1

Hosted by Emma Willis, series seven of the hit reality show airs on Channel 5, with viewers promised “countless twists, turns and tough tasks”.

The house has been given a make-over for the new run, but celebrities will not be expecting VIP treatment but, instead, plenty of drama and tension.

Last year’s show was won by Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby, who beat 5ive singer Abz Lowe to the title
