Hughes, 20, was one of the 16 contestants to enter the Elstree compound last night. She made an immediate impression on viewers and host Brian Dowling by using the word "f**k" repeatedly during her entrance.
The Essex girl discussed her plans to get flirty with her fellow housemates during a conversation with Jersey farmer's daughter Lauren.
"Look at that pool. I'll be in that pool. I'll be in that jacuzzi as well." said Ashleigh.
"You never know what's going to go on in there. Truth of Dare!"
Lauren laughed: "Are you a naughty one? Are you a hellraiser?
Ashleigh said: "I'm a bit of a naughty girl. I am a bit of a wild one."
Lauren replied: "I'm going to have to keep you in check then!"
Big Brother continues tonight at 10pm on Channel 5.
