A STUNNING former model moved into the Big Brother house last night in a desperate bid to spice up the flagging show.

Blonde Lisa joined the six surprised housemates during their reward challenge in the latest attempt by producers to liven up the dull programme.

At 35, she became the oldest member of the house and instant joint-fourth favourite at 6-1 to scoop the pounds 70,000 prize.

Lisa from south Wales will be exempt from eviction next week and will be barred from nominating on Monday.

Dull Cameron Stout, 32, will also escape nomination after spending last week in Africa's BB house, though he can choose a housemate for the chop.

Lisa, who sports a love-heart tattoo on her bottom, is a huge fan of Welsh rugby - of course.

She has just finished an Open University social sciences degree and wants to be a soap actress.

Piscean Lisa, a retail manager in a clothes shop, told the show's producers before she was selected for the programme that despite her looks, people who met her were often surprised to discover she wasn't the traditional dumb blonde.

She insisted: "I am very perceptive and I will be understanding about others' problems.

"I'm strong-willed with a quirky personality and a great passion to win. I also easily adapt to different situations."
