Kim Woodburn was first asked on Celebrity Big Brother EIGHT years ago

Celebrity Big Brother 2017

Kim Woodburn was first invited onto Celebrity Big Brother almost a decade ago.

The 'How Clean Is Your House' TV personality was a late addition to this year's line up, entering over a week into the series.

But she's quickly gone down as one of CBB's most iconic housemates thanks to numerous rows, last night even clashing with Big Brother in the Diary Room.

It turns out that this wasn't the first time Kim had been asked to do the show and was in fact approached by Channel 4 back in 2009.

Her husband revealed this week: "She’d been asked to do it in 2009 but it was the same time as I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here so she couldn’t do both.

"Then we had a phone call asking if she would do it and she thought, ‘Why not?’ We always watch it together so she knew what was going on."

Speaking to new! magazine, Kim's partner admitted: "She doesn’t suffer fools and she always tells it as she sees it."

He explained: "Sometimes I have to tell her to wind it in a little but but what you get is what you get.

"Kim’s a very lovely lady and very kind. But if someone has a go at her or she seems somebody being bullied, she’ll step in and give it with both barrels. There are no half measures with Kim."

And giving Kim's current housemates some advice for dealing with her, he concluded: "If you don’t want to be destroyed by Kim stay away or be nice. That’s all it takes."

Celebrity Big Brother airs nightly on Channel 5.
