The Sun today reports that their Page 3 pin-up girl Lacey Banghard – and honest to god, that’s her actual name – is going to “get temperatures rising next month” when she goes into the Celebrity Big Brother 2013 house.
The paper adds, “Lacey is the first sizzling signing for the show – and producers are hoping the cold weather won’t stop her displaying her 26GG assets on telly.”
19 year old Lacey achieved what I guess you could call celebrity status last year when she won The Sun’s Page 3 Idol competition last year.
Of that, and of her career choice, Lacey said, “Modelling has made me feel sexy and confident.
“I’ve never really felt like that before. I’ve never loved myself…
“I never thought I’d be good enough for Page 3 but it goes to show what can happen if you try.”
And on the subject of going into the CBB house, Lacey said that we can expect to see her doing a lot of the cooking.
She said, “I eat like a horse. I tried going to the gym twice and thought, ‘This is not for me’.
“Obviously I do like to take care of myself. I think it’s all about moderation.”
Wow, well there’s a reason to dislike her right there… only joking. Kind of.
Anyway, here’s what Fleshbot have to say about Lacey…
Who is Lacey Banghard? Lacey is a half-Indian eighteen year-old girl with 26GG boobs. She likes listening to Drake, Nicki Minaj, Kings of Leon, and Jessie J. She studies at Bedford College, works part-time at a call center, and plans to take classes at the London College of Fashion. Or, at least, she did before she won that contest.
The site adds, Ok, really, what’s with her name? When Lacey’s paternal grandparents left India for England, immigration messed up their surname. She didn’t say what the name used to be, but she’s cool about being called Banghard. “I’ve had every joke you can think of thrown at me. It doesn’t happen so much now—just the odd brave guy. I’m used to it. I don’t care. I’ve got three brothers and they love the name!’
Is she single? Nope, she’s dating a nineteen year-old roofer named Laurence. Sorry!
Other rumoured housemates include X Factor finalist Rylan Clark and reality TV star Katie Price.
Celebrity Big Brother will start on Channel 5 on Thursday 3 January at 9pm, but for now, here’s a reminder of last year’s launch night…
