Stormy time for Sun­shine in the Big Brother house

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Front Page - By ASHA ME­HTA

SHE may be known as Sun­shine, but a Peter­bor­ough med­i­cal stu­dent has had a stormy ride in the Big Brother house in re­cent days.

For­mer King’s School Pupil Yvette Mar­tyn, who prefers to go by the hippy-es­que moniker, burst into tears af­ter dis­cov­er­ing most of her house­mates sus­pected she was the show’s se­cret mole.

The 24-year-old pro­vided the show’s first dose of drama with her out­burst, which came as she found out 10 peo­ple thought she was be­hind a se­ries of das­tardly deeds in the house. Mean­while, the real plant Mario only got two votes, grant­ing him full house­mate sta­tus and a re­prieve against in­stant evic­tion.

Sun­shine’s week looks from go­ing from bad to worse, with book­ies nam­ing her as 33/1 out­sider to win the show and favourite to be voted out first.

But her brother Gwyn, who lives near Stib­bing­ton, Peter­bor­ough, be­lieves her blos­som­ing friend­ship with pop­u­lar Mario could bring out the real Sun­shine.

He said: “Now that Mario’s a proper house­mate and doesn’t have to worry about be­ing thrown out, maybe they will get close.

“They stood next to each other be­fore they were cho­sen to go into the house and when she went in, she game him a hug.”

It seems his pre­dic­tion could come true, be­cause Mario re­cently told a tear­ful Sun­shine: “You’re my lit­tle sis­ter in this house. I’ve got your back.”

Gwyn (26) re­vealed it had been tough to watch his sis­ter go through a dif­fi­cult time with­out be­ing able to give her a sup­port­ive hug or phone call.

He said his tip to her would be to let her quirky, car­ing char­ac­ter shine through.

He said: “She’s not com­ing across as her­self. She’s been re­ally shy but I know her as loud and con­fi­dent.

“There is no one re­ally sim­i­lar to her in the house. The girls are quite bitchy and the boys are as well – it’s like there is noth­ing go­ing on in their heads.

“If I could give her some ad­vice, I’d tell her to try and be in­ter­est- ing. “The whole idea of the show is to en­ter­tain peo­ple. At the moment, it’s re­ally dull and noth­ing is hap­pen­ing.

If Yvette gets voted out, they are go­ing to have to put more peo­ple in to liven things up a bit.”

When she leaves the Chan­nel 4 show, Gwyn said Sun­shine plans to re­turn to Le­ices­ter Uni­ver­sity to con­tinue study­ing medicine.

He said one of her dream jobs would be as a TV doc­tor on Chan­nel 4’s Em­bar­rass­ing Bod­ies.

Sun­shine was picked to en­ter the fa­mous house in front of six mil­lion view­ers on Wed­nes­day night. It is the 11th and fi­nal se­ries of Chan­nel 4’s Big Brother this year, with many of the house­mates hop­ing they will em­u­late the show­biz suc­cess of past con­tes­tants.

The hope­fuls’ lives are scru­ti­nised by cam­eras 24 hours a day and they face weekly tasks and evic­tions. Sun­shine’s fam­ily do not be­lieve she has a game plan but she hopes her mix of beauty and brains will set her apart.

The am­bi­tious stu­dent also has as­pi­ra­tions of be­com­ing Prime Min­is­ter one day, de­spite ad­mit­ting she knows very lit­tle about pol­i­tics.

She is cur­rently sin­gle and says on her blog that she loves men with “big strong arms and brains to match her own”.

She lives with her pet Chi­huahua Tinker­bell and a friend. Sun­shine’s ap­pear­ance on the pro­gramme is not the first time Peter­bor­ough has clinched a show­ing on re­al­ity TV.

As­ton Mer­ry­gold from JLS and Ni­cole Lawrence both found fame on the X-Fac­tor.
