How do you get ready for a night out?

"Nights out are like a job for me now, unless it's a big night out like a friend's birthday, then I have a special routine. I have a bath and do my tan the night before, then hope for the best! I use Vicky Pattison's tan called VIP Tan by Vicky, it's really good. At about 7pm I start getting ready – put my hair in rollers, top up with some instant tan and do my make-up, then take my rollers out.

"I use a lot of MAC and Benefit make-up, although I'm not very good at it – I just shove it on my face! I can't do eyeshadow so I just wear mascara, then a nude colour on my lips because I don't like coloured lipsticks. It only takes me about half an hour to get ready."

What are your make-up essentials?

"I love MAC Face and Body Foundation, £21.50, I use it on my neck and chest too. My favourite brand of lashes is Brit Rocks, you can buy them from Savers and they're so cheap. I don't find them difficult to apply, although I have been using them since I was 18, so that's probably why! And I always get my eyebrows done at Tracie Giles' salon. When I first got them done, it changed my life and I can't live without them now. I get them regularly topped up."

How do you pick your outfit for a big night?

"I normally buy my outfit the week before. I like wearing baggy things because I don't like my belly at the moment, and I'm not very comfortable with my weight. So I like to wear big oversized tops and a nice pair of heels."

Which outfit always gets boys' attention?

"I don't really go on the pull anymore because I have a boyfriend, but I'd say something sexy - a little tight dress and massive heels."

Biggest beauty disaster?

"When I stay away somewhere and forget to bring my tanning mitt, I have to use a sock or a pair of knickers wrapped around my hand and it goes all streaky down my leg. You can do that though, but it's not as effective as using a mitt."

And then you have to chuck your knickers away?

"You could wash them, but then you're left with a rather dodgy looking stain, so it's probably best to chuck them away!"

You used to be really blonde, would you ever go back?

"I liked being blonde, sometimes I miss it but it really does ruin your hair. So right now I'm trying to give it a rest by staying brown. I do backcomb it and put a lot of hairspray in though. I'll just use any hairspray that's lying around, they're all the same!"

What do you think of Miley Cyrus' style?

"I love it and I love Miley Cyrus, she's my idol. I would wear what she wears every day of my life if I had a figure like hers."

What are your thoughts on her foam finger performance at the VMAs?

"I came out of Celebrity Big Brother, and my friend said: 'Have you heard about what happened with Miley Cyrus? You need to watch the VMAs!' So I watched it and thought: 'Is that it? That's what everyone's talking about?' She danced in front of Robin Thicke and that's all that people were bothered about. I thought it was great. It was a great performance, and I don't see why everyone got their knickers in a twist about it!"
