You beat thousands of people to a place in the final Big Brother house. Do you not feel guilty for walking?
"I tried as hard as everyone else to get on the show. I wanted it as much as the thousands of people who auditioned. But nobody knows how they are going to react in the house. It's easy for people to say that, but unless you have been in there, you don't know how you will react."
What was different to your expectations of life in the house?
"It's obviously not like any other house you've been in during your life. You are always aware of the cameras being there. You can hear them behind the mirrors. You always know that people are watching. It was really overwhelming."
Did you ever intend to stay in for the long haul?
"I would never have gone up for it, if I hadn't thought that I could hack it. I was really up for it. I spent over £1,000 on clothes, nails and my hair. I didn't do that to just go in there for a week. I got up at six at the morning to go to all these auditions, five hour train journeys every time - I didn't do that thinking I only wanted three days in there."
Do you regret leaving?
Do you regret going in?
"No, I don't."
Was being away from your boyfriend Alex one of the reasons for you leaving?
"No, that wasn't the main reason. It's just in there that your emotions are so high. I had dinner with Alex last night, we had some wine, and I had a really nice time with him. I don't know what the house did to me. But I just wasn't myself. My friends were all shocked to see me like that and thought I should pull myself together. But I always said from day one that I wanted to go in there and be myself. I got to know the housemates, but I was still unhappy and just couldn't stay."
Who did you like the most in the house?
"I really like all of them in the house. But John James and Josie really keep themselves apart from the rest of the house. In a small place like that you would expect to spend quite a bit of time with everyone. But I never really got to know John James. I never spent any time with him alone. He was always with Josie."
What's your opinion on the John James and Josie romance?
"I don't know what's going. I mean, are they even going out? They are always underneath the sheets and stuff, but I don't know what's going on. It's just kisses and stuff. I don't know. It could be a game. It could be Josie playing a game. I think she's really clever. John James has showed that he cares emotionally, but I haven't seen that with Josie. If she really cared about him, when he told her that he didn't fancy her or find her attractive, after all that time, you would think she would be a bit upset. I think I would be. He's a very emotional person and he's running outside the house, so maybe it's a bit more on his side."
Do you think Josie is playing a game then?
"I don't know. A lot of people have come out and said that they find her fake. I don't find her fake. But I don't know how real her relationship is because I didn't get enough time to see them together."
Did you find it awkward with them spending so much time under their duvet?
"I know some people did. I found it awkward. I know Andrew found it awkward. It is awkward because you know that they are in some deep conversation. You know that it is the main story in the house and that it will be shown on TV. I don't want to walk in and interrupt. I didn't want to walk in and eavesdrop on what they were saying. I just left them alone to get on with it. The other housemates I have spoke to felt the same."
Who did you like the most in the house?
"Ben, Mario, Dave, Corin are all absolutely hilarious. So hilarious. And really witty. And Jo is just so funny. They have all been portrayed very well so far and are very much like they are coming across on screen."
Did you notice that Rachel was jealous of your relationship with Ben?
"I thought that [their relationship] was just a joke. I wasn't aware that she was jealous. I didn't pay any attention to that. I was just getting along with Ben. I'd like Ben to win."
Who do you think is the most dominant housemate?
"Josie is quite dominant. She talks quite loudly and dominates the conversations as well. And she cooks the food as well. However, I think Josie has met a bigger character in the house with Jo's arrival. I think Jo is the alpha female."
You spent £1,000 on clothes and your hair. Did you want to get something out of the show afterwards?
"Oh definitely not. Definitely. I just wanted some nice clothes to go in with. I just wanted some nice clothes and I think anyone would if they were going on TV. If you have some good nice clothes you will feel and look nice. But I didn't want to get anything out of it, not at all."
What are your plans now you have left
"I'm just going to go back to my normal life. I don't think people will recognise me because I was in there for such a short space of time. I don't really feel like I was in there because it was such a short space of time. I think I'm doing Nuts magazine, which is the only offer that I had. Rachael did that and I think it was tasteful. And I would do that. I obviously wouldn't get my nipples out, but I'd do it in a classy way."
What will you do with the money from the shoot?
"I'm just going to pay Alex back because I borrowed money off him for all the stuff that I took in the house."
Does he not mind you doing a lads' mag?
"Oh no. It's up to me."
