Jasmine Lennard, the reality television star and former girlfriend of Simon Cowell, says she doesn't want to be defined by her relationship with the X Factor mogul. The model - who shot to fame in 2005 as a finalist in Rachel Hunter's 'Make Me a Supermodel' - entered the Celebrity Big Brother house this week.
According to the UK's Sun newspaper, Lennard almost immediately began dishing on her relationship with Cowell, which was reported to have ended badly after a whirlwind six month romance. Jasmine told fellow housemate Coleen Nolan, "I don't have anything bad to say. That person was such a huge part of my life. I don't want my life to be defined by it.The way the relationship has gone down in history is the complete opposite to how it went down". During the relationship, Jasmine had Simon Cowell's initials tattooed on her arm, though she appears to have gotten over the X Factor boss. On last night's episode of the Channel 5 show, the single mum was seen flirting with the Italian Royal Prince Lorezo Borghese in the garden. After the Prince revealed he was a Gemini, the 27-year-old replied, "I'm constantly attracted to Geminis". After he asked her what she is famous for, Jasmine admitted, "I'm most well-known for my bad behaviour".
Other 'celebrities' in this year's house include the Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp and Mike Sorrentino aka 'The Situation'.
