Last week, we published some rather compelling evidence that the iconic YouTuber could be headed to CBB. Not only had Trisha Paytas been hinting in videos that she’d be leaving the US for a short while this summer; but her doctor accidentally mentioned Trisha entering CBB on social media (although they swiftly deleted it afterwards).

The rumour mill went into total overdrive on Saturday 29th July; when Trisha shared a series of three cryptic tweets that hinted at something pretty major happening in her life:

Finally, on Sunday 30th July we received the news that we had been waiting with baited breath for – Trisha Paytas was officially named as a Celebrity Big Brother UK housemate.

Trisha has previously shown massive love for Celebrity Big Brother, so it’s no surprise she jumped at the chance to be on the show, which kicks off on 1st August at 9:05pm on Channel 5. In a 2015 interview with MTV, she said, ‘I ABSOLUTELY would love to be on CBB! Both Shane (Dawson) and I are obsessed with CBBUK! We always catch up on that the first thing when we do our weekly hangs.”

She also told them what she thought she’d be able to bring to the CBBUK house: “I would bring the curve appeal. We need the donk, the belly, the round arms, round face, everything. I use to date a few dudes from the UK (shout out to Sussex and Poole) and they needed to see my body like every day; I think the British public needs that too. Plus I’m feisty, but also sweet; I can stir up drama and calm it down all at the same time!”

With a penchant for drama and controversy, a completely non-existent social filter and an in-depth knowledge and love of CBBUK, Trisha Paytas might just be a serious competitor in the upcoming reality series. And we can’t wait to watch every last second.
