8 JANUARY 2009 Being the first celebrity voted off Big Brother would be a disaster for most contestants. But Ulrika Jonsson has said she'd be delighted to get booted out – because she misses her four children.
Less than a week after she and her fellow housemates moved in, the former weather girl has tearfully admitted she's desperate to be reunited with 14-year-old Cameron, Bo, eight, Martha, four, and seven-month-old Malcolm.
She may be granted her wish on Friday when she, alongside glamour girl Lucy Pinder, faces a public vote after been nominated as the House's biggest ego and least talent .
If the 41-year-old TV presenter is the first to go it's unlikely to please Channel 4 bosses, who reportedly paid her £175,000 to take part in the reality show. Recent reports suggest the channel may have something guaranteed to pull in viewers up its sleeve, however.
According to the Daily Mail, Nancy Dell'Olio – former girlfriend of Sven-Goran Eriksson and Ulrika's love rival – has been offered £250,000 to join the house.
The 50-year-old fiery Italian lawyer reportedly declined an offer of £125,000 in December, but now the fee has been upped her advisers are apparently considering the offer.
