Shilpa Shetty in Big Brother (Day 1)

Today, Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty became the first ever Indian to feature on UK's celebrity Big Brother reality show.

The sari-clad beauty joined 10 other celebrities - Jermaine Jackson (Michael Jackson's brother), model Danielle Lloyd, 79-year-old filmmaker Ken Russell, singer Jo O'Meara and Leo Sayer, actress Cleo Rocos, columnist Carole Malone, rocker Donny Tourette, gay musician Ian 'H' Watkins and Hollywood actor Dirk Benedict - for a three-week stint under one roof.

Her first comment on entering the Big Brother villa was that she'll miss life without her entourage. Shilpa, obviously used to places more roomy, was also distressed by the size of her bed. Talking of beds, there are only ten beds for eleven celebrities which means two unlucky stars have to cozy up in one. But spunky Shilpa managed to grab on to one of the single beds.

Dirk then lectured Shilpa on how "letting go" is the way to live life. I wonder if Shilpa's smile meant she was actually listening to the former A-Team star's philosophy.

The Bollywood siren will also have to prepare for the unexpected. One of the celebrities (not telling you which one) was scandalised by one male co-star displaying his family jewels on Day 1.

As to whether Shilpa would eventually win, the exotic Indian look and our NRI brethren in Britain might just take her places. Keep watching this space for updates.
