Who is Marissa Jade, how old is she and what is she known for?
Marissa Jade is a 32-year-old US reality TV star, actress and model from Staten Island, who rose to fame through her role on Mob Wives.
The show is much like a Real Housewives series, but instead the wives featured on it are jailbirds and ex-cons.
The model’s real name is Marissa Fiore but she uses her middle name Jade as a professional surname.
Marissa’s ex-boyfriend OZ served five years in jail, and after he came out she said: “OZ took his bid like a man.
“He kept his mouth shut and stayed loyal – that’s what I love about him.”
On Mob Wives, she’s been known to physically fight with the other ladies.
The raven-haired beauty has an nine-year-old son called Jaiden from a previous relationship, and has appeared in shows including Gossip Girl, The Good Wife and Law & Order.
You may also have seen her in Will Ferrell Christmas movie Elf.
She’s also particularly proud to have inspired the creation of the main character in comic book series Destiny, Queen of Thieves.
When is Celebrity Big Brother 2017 on Channel 5 and who is presenting?
Celebrity Big Brother started on August 1 2017 with a two hour launch presented by Emma Willis.
The main show generally airs each night at 9pm, lasting for an hour, with spin-off show CBB’s Bit on the Side at 11.05pm, hosted by Rylan Clark-Neal.
The Saturday show is on a little later, kicking off at 10pm and there is no BBOTS at the weekend.
Celebrity Big Brother typically lasts around four weeks, with January’s series won by Coleen Nolan the joint longest in the show’s history, lasting 32 days.
Where is the Celebrity Big Brother house and has it moved for 2017?
The current setting for both Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother is a large compound in Borehamwood, nestled right next to where the original Star Wars was filmed.
The site is just a 22 minute train journey from London Kings Cross Station.
This year’s makeover is designed to look like a “top celeb retreat”.
Housemates can enjoy a large salon-style bathroom, pastel-coloured interiors, an array of plants and two jacuzzis.
