Remember Samantha Brick, the UK journalist who sparked global outrage and fielded a torrent of nasty comments and death threats when she wrote a column about the "downsides of being pretty"?

The 41-year-old former TV presenter and self-proclaimed "French housewife" has taken her looks into the UK Celebrity Big Brother house overnight.

The producers are surely hoping she'll come up with gems to rival these doozies from both her original Daily Mail story in April, and the interviews that followed:

"While I'm no Elle Macpherson, I'm tall, slim, blonde and, so I'm often told, a good-looking woman. I know how lucky I am. But there are downsides to being pretty — the main one being that other women hate me for no other reason than my lovely looks."

"I'm not smug and I'm no flirt, yet over the years I've been dropped by countless friends who felt threatened if I was merely in the presence of their other halves. If their partners dared to actually talk to me, a sudden chill would descend on the room."

"Ten out of ten men [at a dinner party] fancy me."

Before going in the house, Samantha admitted she knows she'll be "unpopular", and "turning [public opinion] round is going to be difficult", she told the Celebrity Big Brother website.

Her celebrity housemates include Spandau Ballet's Martin Kemp, comedian Julian Clary and Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.

Let's hope Samantha isn't the target of reality TV nastiness like these examples:
