White Dee succeeds in CBB mission
Benefits Street's White Dee has succeeded in her mission to convince three overseas housemates that she is British royalty.
On entering the Big Brother house Dee was set the task of trying to persuade the trio - serial US reality show starlet Angelique 'Frenchy' Morgan and actors Gary Busey and Leslie Jordan - that she is Duchess of Solihull.
Unknown to the overseas celebrities, the British housemates knew her real identity and helped with the cover-up.
The Channel 5 show's official website shows Big Brother announcing to cheers and laughter among the housemates, that since Dee had been convincing the whole house would be rewarded with a party.
Earlier viewers had seen Dee tell a few fake royal tales to the overseas housemates.
Jordan told Big Brother that he was "enthralled by the duchess" although at first he thought she might have been an impersonator while Busey said "we are all royal here". Morgan noted that she is "very down to earth".
On the orders of Big Brother, Dee told Jordan she was at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding and that she tried to leave in their Aston Martin because she was so "pissed and a little bit worse for wear" by the end of the celebrations.
She also told Morgan that she had accidentally shot a swan while out hunting with Prince Philip and had to hide the evidence.
Dee also described herself as "a bit of an outcast" as far as royalty goes and she does not go to many gatherings.
To help with her deception dancer James Jordan, of Strictly Come Dancing fame, added that she is thought of as "a bit of a naughty one" in royal circles.
Celebrity Big Brother is now in its 14th series, with the most recent run earlier this year seeing comedian Jim Davidson victorious.
