Goodwin, 29, was born and brought up in Norway where her father, Steve, an ex-Norwich and Southend midfielder, finished his career.

"I applied to go on Big Brother for a bit of fun," she told dailymail.co.uk.

"I went in as a reserve and my philosophy in life or sport is, I'm in it to win it. It's certainly not the taking part that counts!

"I didn't have any real game-plan. I just aimed to be myself. It worked and I was a bit of a celeb for a while.

"It was a great start to my life because to have that extra bit of money at 22  meant I could repay my student loans. I got my  bachelor degree in  nursing and now work as  a psychiatric nurse."

Recruited by Team Great Britain, she may not strike gold but giving up without a fight is not what she will do, ever.
