Benefits Street Dee is legging it to BB

From Benefits Street to the Big Brother house, Deirdre Kelly has come a long way since appearing on the Channel 4 documentary.

The 43-year-old Birmingham-based reality TV sensation was the first housemate to enter the house at this week's launch night.

Channel 5 viewers saw her walk the famous BB podium wearing black leggings and a grey tunic before being given a lavish makeover as part of a task.

Kelly - otherwise known as "White Dee" - is mixing with far more battle-hardened celebrities in the famous Borehamwood bungalow in Hertfordshire.

These include former heavyweight boxer Audley Harrison and boxing promoter Kellie Maloney (formerly Frank Maloney), who has been making the headlines for her recent sex change.

Former Emmerdale siren Claire King, US reality star Stephanie Pratt, TOWIE's Lauren Goodger and Hollywood veteran Gary Busey are also in the line-up.
