Celebrity Big Brother 2013: Paula Hamilton has 'secret signal'

Paula Hamilton (Celebrity Big Brother 2013)

Troubled Celebrity Big Brother 2013 housemate Paula Hamilton has a secret signal to show she's in trouble.

The model had originally been rejected from the series when it aired on Channel 4 over fears for her mental state.

Psychologist Jo Hemmings, who was on the team when the show was on Channel 4 two years ago, expressed her concerns via Twitter during the show's launch last week.

She said: “Paula Hamilton – because sending an alcoholic who failed her C4 psych tests three years ago is SUCH a good idea.

“At the risk of sounding like a killjoy, it’s a seriously irresponsible decision…”

And Jo claimed that Paula being sent to the basement in the first night’s twist would cause the former catwalk star to breakodwn.

She tweeted: “Paula Hamilton in basement? I was going to give her 48 hours in the house, pre meltdown. Much less now. She shouldn’t be there at all!”

And Jo was proved right, with bosses having moved Paula from the basement to the main house already this morning.

On advice from doctors, Paula joined the other housemates on Friday in the luxury side of the house after coming down with an ‘illness’ overnight.

But Paula revealed before going into the house: “I will do a double hand clap and production know to take me out straight away and talk to me."

She told the Daily Express: “I’ve always had panic attacks and knowing they can happen in the house is scary. I have them less and less these days, but when it happens it feels like you’re having a heart attack.”

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
