Ireland’s too reserved for me, says snooty Georgia as she enters Big Brother house

GEORGIA Salpa could make a million euro if she capitalises on her success on Big Brother, X Factor star Louis Walsh has said.



The Irish photocall model believes she could have the world at her feet if she plays her cards right and has the right management around her, he added.

Snooty Georgia entered the house last night for the Channel 5 programme – and her male housemates already seem smitten.

TOWIE (The Only Way Is Essex) star Kirk Norcross has already admitted he fancies Georgia, sharing his secret to shamed X Factor reject Frankie Cocozza as they were in the hot tub together.

The 23-year-old said that Georgia's resemblance to American reality star Kim Kardashian was one reason he was so attracted to her.

“See that girl Georgia, I love her, I always have,” he told Frankie (18) and former Welsh rugby player Gareth Thomas (37). “She's a model from Ireland but she worked in London.



SMITTEN

“That's sort of my type, she's sort of my type. I like Kim Kardashian – do you know what I mean?”

Last summer, Georgia was the subject of heightened speculation that she was set to join the cast of the reality series.

While she has never been linked to Kirk, it looks like he could be let down as Georgia is smitten by her new man.

She has been dating an English businessman, known only as Joe, since she split from ladies’ man Calum Best last year. Friends of the model say the 26-year-old has no intention of jeopardising her blossoming romance with the businessman and will be keeping it platonic inside the Big Brother house.

While the Irish model is understood to have picked up a €100,000 fee for her appearance, X Factor judge Louis Walsh reckons she could make 10 times that amount if she capitalises on her appearance in the correct manner.

“She’s a really sexy girl and I reckon the UK will love her.

“If she plays this right she can make a fortune from this. This is just the start – if she created any kind of a profile for herself in the UK and has the right management team around her, she’ll very easily make a million out of this.”

Georgia was greeted by cheers and whistles from the crowd before entering the house.

In her profile, Greek-born Georgia explained that she was the first Irish model to take part in FHM's High Street Honeys competition.

“I was the first Irish model to do that because Ireland is quite reserved so when I came on the scene everyone was a bit shocked.”.

She said that she was “really excited about going into the house” and described herself as “most famous for being a lingerie and swimwear model”.

”People's first impression of me will be that I’m like a dolly bird – big hair and boobs. I’d be worried about how much clothes you can bring because I have a lot.”

Georgia joined other celebrities in the house last night, including Reservoir Dogs star Michael Madsen, Playboy twins Kristina and Karissa Shannon, Ryan Giggs' sister-in-law and former mistress Natasha Giggs, model Nicola McLean, Loose Women star Denise Welch, singer Andrew Stone and former Solid Crew star Romeo Dunn.
