If you think you've seen Big Brother 2018's Anamélia Silva on TV before, you'd be right.

Anamélia is a 31-year-old Spiritual Advisor originally from Brazil but grew up in Sweden before moving to London.


She was the first evictee of this year's Big Brother - but it wasn't her first attempt at reality TV.

She auditioned for The X Factor - which is currently airing Saturday and Sunday nights on ITV - back in 2011.

Anamélia sang for then judges Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland, Louis Walsh and Tulisa.

But she ended up with four nos from the panel, who slammed her 'arrogant' attitude.

Tulisa said: "I think there’s a fine line between being confident and being arrogant, and I think you stepped over the mark."

After the failed audition, Anamélia said: "I am very confident, and I will say I am confident, why wouldn’t I?"


Recalling the try out this week, Anamelia told the Daily Star newspaper: "I was on that stage for 15 minutes and they showed 38 seconds.

"One of the judges said something very, very rude to me, that actually even the audience was like 'wow.'"

Speaking last month before entering Big Brother, Anamélia said: "There are two things – one, I want to learn more about myself because it is going to be very challenging. I am usually like, not a loner, but I like my own space.

"So this is going to be quite challenging. Two, I kind of want to show people there is another way of living, because I am very spiritual, so I want to showcase that. Not everyone has to be the same. Different is good."


She continued: "I am hoping to bring some positivity for sure. I am hoping to maybe help people to ground themselves more. I feel I am pretty grounded, so I hope to inspire them and help them."

Big Brother airs Sunday-Friday at 10PM On Channel 5.
