Three new female housemates – a PA, a model and a theatre director – have become the newest arrivals in the Big Brother house.

The trio entered the house on Friday evening following Jennifer’s eviction, an received a warm welcome from the housemates.

First into the house was Sara, a PA and self-confessed Angelina Jolie lookalike.

The 27-year-old – who has lived in the UK since the age of 21 – admitted to the others that she was scared as she entered the house – but she had little time to be nervous after a hysterical Rebecca shrieked and leapt on her. “We got a girl, we got a girl!” she shrieked.

Stuart, meanwhile, looked delighted at the sight of the new arrival, although Dale was clearly shocked to see a new girl in the house.

Next in was Maysoon, a 28-year-old model who has worked on music videos for artists including Ludacris and former Blue member Simon Webbe.

Her audition tape – in which she boasted of her achievements in modelling – did little to win over the crowd, many of whom booed her as she made her way into the house.

Nonetheless, she was warmly welomed by the housemates, who were shocked to see another new arrival so soon. “There’s three, there’s three,” predicted Dale as he greeted Maysoon.

The final new arrival was Belinda, a flamboyant theatre director, who describes herself as “an emotional tonic to pep people up”.

The 44-year-old made her arrival in a flouncy floor-length black and white dress, and proved popular with the crowd, who cheered her all the way into the house.

And she wasted no time in getting friendly with Mario and Lisa.

“My name’s Belinda, Belinda, Belinda,” she told them. “But you only need to say it once.
