This wild US star should make interesting viewing...

Aubrey O’Day might not be a familiar face to UK viewers but she soon will be now that she’s headed for the Celebrity Big Brother house.

The American reality star, 32, is known for her pretty wild past in the US and we think this could make for quite the conversation point with her fellow housemates.


Celebrity Big Brother stars’ embarrassing pasts revealed!

She was a pop star

Aubrey first came into the public eye when she auditioned for the 2004 TV series Making The Band, which followed P Diddy as he formed a new girl group.

After several auction stages Aubrey made it into Danity Kane and the band went on to open for Christina Aguilera and the Pussycat Dolls on tour.

Sadly it all came to an end for Aubrey in 2008 when she was axed from the group, with Diddy claiming she was simply trying to expand her fame at the expense of the band. She briefly reunited with Danity Kane in 2013 before they broke up again.

Nowadays she’s making music again in new duo Dumblonde with her former Danity Kane bandmate Shannon Bex.

She’s a reality TV regular

Since her Making The Band days Aubrey has continued to regularly pop up on TV screens in the US. Most recently she starred in Famously Single – where single celebrities live together to try and solve their love life issues – alongside the likes of Calum Best.

She’s found love on screen

Aubrey became close to Jersey Shore star Pauly D on Famously Single and seemed to find it hard to tear herself away from him as she prepared to fly over to the UK this week. Awww.

She’s best friends with an ex-CBB (and porn) star

Remember porn star Jemma Jameson, who represented the US in the UK vs America series of Celebrity Big Brother last summer? She’s pretty tight with Aubrey, so here’s hoping she’ll give her some tips on how to survive in the house.

She didn’t impress Donald Trump

Aubrey appeared on the US version of The Celebrity Apprentice in 2012, on which Donald Trump played Alan Sugar’s boss role. The reality star ended up getting fired and didn’t impress many viewers, though to be fair she managed to remain in the competition until near the end.

She LOVES a selfie

Over the years Aubrey has undergone quite the makeover, swapping her girl next door look for a blonde bombshell image that’s seen her do various saucy photoshoots. She also enjoys showing this off on Instagram with A LOT of selfies.
