Loose Women’s Nadia Sawalha wants to return to Celebrity Big Brother

It's not all fun and games in the house!

| Updated:

Loose Women’s Nadia Sawalha has said she’d love to return to the Celebrity Big Brother house.

The 53-year-old served as a housemate for the 15th series of Celebrity Big Brother three years ago and told Closer magazine she’s desperate to return after seeing this summer’s line-up.

Nadia admitted she’d love to be mixing with the likes of Hollywood star Kirstie Alley and Rodrigo Alves, dubbed The Human Ken Doll.

She said: “I was in the house in 2015 but this year’s crop of housemates is so fantastic that I want to go back in!”

That being said, the actress also acknowledged the experience isn’t all fun and games.

She issued a warning to the housemates that they will be pushed to the limit.

Nadia said: “They will have to prepare themselves for hell on earth; they shouldn’t underestimate for one second just how difficult it is. The worst part is being locked in the bedroom at night – it felt like being in prison.”

The television favourite’s series in 2015 also featured Katie Hopkins, Keith Chegwin, Calum Best and eventual winner Katie Price.

Although Nadia’s keen to go back in now, she admitted in her eviction interview with CBB host Emma Willis she was thrilled to be out of the house.

She confessed that although she’s a “massive fan” of CBB, she’d made a mistake by switching from a viewer to housemate.

“I should never have crossed over!” she said.

“I made a terrible, terrible, terrible mistake. It was a disaster. It was horrendous. I mean, truly.”

The current series of CBB kicked off last Thursday night with ex-Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas, former Emmerdale actress Roxanne Pallet, footballer Jermaine Pennant and ex-TOWIE star Dan Osborne among the line-up.

CBB airs nightly on Channel 5.
