Big Brother host likes to use her brain


Emma Willis has no plans to resume her modelling career.

The Big Brother presenter started out as a model in her teens before switching to TV and admits she made the move because she was keen to do something that would excite her more.

‘I was bored,’ says Emma, 38.

‘I wanted to use my brain a bit more. I needed something that would challenge me.’

Emma’s decision certainly paid off. She’s become one of the most popular faces on television, having fronted shows including The Voice, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! NOW! and Loose Women.

Her life away from the cameras has prospered too. The presenter became Mrs Emma Willis when she married Busted star Matt Willis in 2008.

Since then the Big Brother host and her hubby have welcomed two children – daughter Isabelle, 5, and son Ace, 3.

Emma has clearly settled into life as a TV presenter and mum so she has no desire to become a model again.

The pretty brunette also doesn’t think she’s in the right physical condition to return to her former job even if she wanted to, though we think she looks fab.

‘No [I wouldn’t go back to modelling],’ the Big Brother host says.

‘I’ve probably got too much cellulite! I like food too much. I couldn’t ever live on red wine and peanuts.’

Emma Willis is a girl after our own hearts. She admits that she has quite a sweet tooth.

‘I love cake!’ she happily confesses.

The presenter recently proved how much she adores little treats by Tweeting about some cupcakes Giovanna Fletcher had received.

Gi, wife of Matt’s McBusted bandmate Tom Fletcher, shared a photo of the snacks and wrote: ‘Wooooooow!!! Thank you @lolascupcakes! Cake anyone?? @EmmaWillis, you in? Xxx’

An envious Emma replied: ‘I want them nooooowwwww!’
