PAGE 3 model Rhian Sugden hopes to put the Vernon Kay text-scandal behind her as she has entered the Celebrity Big Brother house.

The 25-year-old hit the headlines in 2010, when it was revealed she had exchanged flirty texts with the former St John Rigby pupil after he had met her in a nightclub.

After admitting the saga had been an “absolute nightmare”, and hopes to change the perception of her as a “home wrecker.”

Speaking to New! magazine before she entered the house on Wednesday, she said: “I’d like people to see me for me. People always presume I’m a certain kind of person and I’m actually quite a nice, normal person.”

She added that she was not worried about going on the reality TV show after the saga, and added: “There’s nothing to say.

“It’s been blown way out of proportion. I don’t want to be linked to it anymore.”

The Bolton model, who is single, said she wouldn’t want TV romance, as she thought it was cheesy.

Sparks are also expected to fly as Simon Cowell’s ex Jasmine Lennard, is also in the Channel Five house.

The pair are said to be at war as Jasmine accused her of having a fling with footballer Cristiano Ronaldo whilst they were dating.

Rhian added it may be slightly awkward, but she would try to ignore the past.
