Dublin model's love life adds variety to Big Brother
The housemates set to enter the redesigned Big Brother house have been revealed ahead of the TV3 show's live launch.
The broadcaster has taken the unprecedented step of introducing the 16 people who will be subject to round-the-clock filming before the new series airs for the first time on Tuesday.
Among them is Jade-Martina Lynch, described as "a polyamorous 24-year-old model from Dublin".
To be polyamorous means to have open sexual or romantic relationships with more than one person at a time.
Also entering the house are a former X Factor contestant, Eileen Daly (51), from London, and model Aaron Frew (24), from Northampton.
They will be entering an altered building complete with a fish tank and a round sofa said to be inspired by the 1960s style of hit TV show Mad Men.

Presenters Emma Willis and Rylan Clark will return to the reality show, which is now called Big Brother: Timebomb and also airs on Channel 5.
The main Big Brother series was the most-complained-about show of last year, with UK watchdog Ofcom receiving 3,784 complaints, many centred on the behaviour of its eventual winner Helen Wood, who was accused of bullying other contestants.
