'I thought it was how it looked on TV: "Hello, I'm Alisha, nice to meet you, see you inside..." and that spooked me so much because I felt like I had to fill time.
'It would have been really fine if I'd just said a normal hello.'
She explained all the quirky entrances on her season were 'real', adding: 'When you're cast, your producer workshops with you to figure out an entrance that captures your personality.
'Obviously they're keen on the novelty ones because they're entertaining.'

She also revealed the women were able to 'vaguely' choose their outfit for night one.
'It was really down to how efficient and assertive you were,' she said. 'I walked into wardrobe and I knew I had been allocated 10 minutes.
'I said to the stylist "we're doing say yes to the dress", because I knew I needed to feel confident.
'I would have tried on eight or nine dresses, but I knew it was the one as soon as I put it on.'
