Never thought that’d be a headline, but tonight it’s reported that Simon Walton’s fiance will be unveiled as a contestant on Channel Four’s Celebrity Big Brother.

‘Glamour model’ Nicola Tappenden is reportedly set to earn £50,000 for entering the Big Brother house tonight with the likes of Vinnie Jones and a bunch of complete unknowns.

Walton and Tappenden, who has previously had a relationship with Premiership ‘star’ Bobby Zamora, have been together for nearly two years and in November 2008 Tappenden gave birth to their daughter.

Walton is currently on loan at Gresty Road from Plymouth Argyle till the end of the season and is starting to prove a hit in the Alex midfield. Whether his fiance’s latest television appearance will make him a ‘hit’ elsewhere remains to be seen.

Celebrity Big Brother starts tonight on Channel Four at 9pm.
