About her time on Celebrity Big Brother, she said:
“I’ve decided to take part in Celebrity Big Brother – because if not now, when? It’s the year for me of ‘Yes.’ What followed the accident and the media frenzy was quite a lot of backlash online – I was trolled for not being injured enough…They absolutely contributed to a really difficult time.” I hope I bring a bit of sparkle and light to the house – but you just never know how you’re going to feel. I’m not going to put on an act.”
