Big Brother star Angel McKenzie on tonight’s Red Or Black

We were a little shocked when we tuned in to Red Or Black tonight and saw a very familiar face on the new show.

The gameshow launched on ITV this evening and former Big Brother contestant, Angel McKenzie, made it through to the final eight who all had a chance of winning £1 million on the live show.

We checked out her Facebook page, where she confirmed that she had won a place on the show, writing:

“Should i say it proudly? dont know? but i’m one of the eights contestant to win 1 million pounds on a new Simon Cowell show “Red and Black”. Came last night through the last audition… very exited… live in september on ITV with Ant and Dec… still can not beleive it…”

The 37 year old boxer and artist starred in the 2009 series of Big Brother, when it still aired on Channel 4.

She became the third housemate to be evicted from the reality TV show, after she and Halfwit (Freddie) were nominated in a live nomination and she received the least amount of public votes.

Speaking about her big chance on tonight’s Red Or Black, Angel told

“I like to entertain people! Life can be so boring, I want to entertain and prove that miracles and good things can happen.”

At the end of tonight’s episode, Angel made it through to the final contestants for tomorrow night’s live show, though many on Twitter were in uproar, saying she already had her shot at TV fame. Leave your comments below.
