The new Big Mother of Big Brother may have it tough keeping those naughty housemates in line on Big Brother's Bit On The Side, but now it's our turn to put Emma through her paces as we ask her, how showbiz are you?

1. Who is the most famous name in your mobile?
Matt Willis (laughs). No, I've got Davina McCall's number and I've got Simon Pegg's. We don't chat but we occasionally tweet each other.
2/5.

2. Most bizarre thing you've ever read about yourself?
Nothing too random actually. I did read I was pregnant about six months after I met Matt so he was still about 12 at the time, so that obviously wasn't true. It's always quite bizarre that someone knows your personal gains before you, or your gynaecologist.
2/5. A celeb with a sense of humour? Who knew?

3. How much is too much for a haircut?
It depends where you go and who is doing it. I would say no more than 200 quid but that's for everything - cut, colour, blow dry and a conditioning treatment. It's not how much I pay but if I were to have the whole package I wouldn't pay more than that. You have to get all your treatments.
3/5. VFM? Leave that for the plebs.

4. What is the weirdest place you've ever been recognised?
I don't really get recognised. I don't, honestly. Very rarely. That's got to work in my favour right?
0/5. She knows how to play this game.

5. What's the weirdest thing you've been sent by fan?
I wasn't sure if it was a fan or someone who wanted me to promote something for them but I was sent a Holo which is a lilo with a hole in it for your pregnant belly. It was useful if you go on holiday, but I didn't have any holidays planned. I still have it for if I ever get pregnant again. What an amazing idea!
0/5. Oh dear.

6. What's the best party you've ever been to?
My 30th. It was awesome. We had a little bar and we all dressed up in fancy dress. There was a couple of members of McFly there and that was about it celeb wise. It was all pretty low key in that respect, but it was brilliant. I got very, very, very drunk.
3/5. Who needs any other celebs when you've got a couple of the McFly boys?

7. Ever used your fame to get what you want?
No. I don't ask for things but if I'm offered them I will happily take them, if I like them. But I would never call and beg for something. I can also happily say hand-on-heart I have never used the line 'don't you know who I am?'. "What do you mean you won't give me 10 pairs of shoes? I'm Emma Willis" - I never will. I'd get such a bad rep.
0/5. And you're won way.

8. How much cash would it take to get you to pose in the buff?
A lot. Like a hell of a lot. Probably the minimum would have to be £1million. I would not be getting my bum or boobs out in the Big Brother house either. Fabulous magazine fine [Emma recently did a saucy shoot for the Saturday mag], but not the Big Brother house. If Fabulous had paid me I'd have got everything out (laughs). I'm joking.
5/5. Hmmm, not strictly true. Just Google her if you don't believe us.

9. Best freebie you ever received?
Today actually, as I was leaving the house a pushchair and a travelcot arrived for me! They cost a bloody fortune.
2/5. Not exactly caviar and champagne.

10. Ever been chatted up by another celeb?
Haha, not that I'm going to tell you about. But I can tell you Frankie Cocozza did not try and crack on to me at the after show party. Although he is a very sweet kid.
2/5. Wow, Frankie showing some restraint?

Result: 19/50
Phew! We're relieved that Emma is pretty much as down to earth as she appears on the tellybox. She may be married to a former popstar (Matt Willis of Busted) and her son may have one of the best baby names in celebsville (Ace Billy Willis), but the Big Brother's Bit On The Side host hasn't developed a touch of the don't-you-know-who-I-am?s just yet.

Emma Willis will be interviewing special guests on the BAFTA red carpet ahead of the official DISARONNO After-Party on 12th February. Catch all the highlights from 10.30pm at www.facebook.com/Disaronno
