South Yorkshire office administrator Chloe Wilburn says she has no interest in fame – despite signing up for the latest series of Big Brother.
The 25-year-old has vowed the spotlight will not change her and pledged to return to her hometown of Doncaster when her time in the reality television show ends.
In an interview before entering the house tomorrow, Chloe said: “I am going to just work nine-to-five forever.
“I’m going to stay in Doncaster, be Northern. I don’t mind that. I’m an administrator, I love my job.
“I’m probably going to hopefully come out of the house, get married, have kids and just be a normal Northerner.
“I just think I’ve got a few weeks to do something a bit crazy, so I can look back when I’m older.
“Normal people go off to uni and then they go off to Australia. I’m never going to go to Australia for 12 weeks or whatever. I’m never going to wear harem pants and get dreadlocks and do anything cool, so this is as cool as it’s going to get.
“I’m the kind of person that goes into Asda with no shoes on and my pyjamas, and I’m hoping that I can just still do that.”
Prize money of £150,000 is on offer to the winner – and Chloe already knows how she would spend it, with frequent trips to her favourite holiday destination.
“I’ve been going to Benidorm forever, I absolutely love it,” Chloe told British entertainment and media news website Digital Spy.
“I just love the fact everyone’s English, normal, just like me, the kind of people who eat chicken nuggets, chips and beans for breakfast.
“You can have a pint of vodka and coke with your breakfast. It’s my favourite place in the whole world.”
In the interview – read it here – Chloe also talks about being arrested, fighting and her hopes for the house.
