Pop Idol Contestant Goes Into Big Brother House
Zoe Birkett is among trio of new housemates...
No, you haven't fallen asleep and missed the start of this summer's Celebrity Big Brother.
We are still in the midst of the main series on Channel 5 and a former Pop Idol contestant has just gone in.
Zoe Birkett was the fourth-place finisher behind Will Young, Gareth Gates and Darius Danesh in the 2001 series - and has since forged a successful career in musical theatre.
Fans were surprised to see the 29-year-old singer go into the house last night along with two other newbies - because she's arguably more "famous" than many of the CBB contestants of recent years.
The other new arrivals are 31-year-old stripper Biannca Lake, from Essex, who cites Katie Price as her idol, and 22-year-old property manager Pavandeep Paul - also from Essex.
