Frank Lampard's ex wife Elen Rivas earned her stripes as a bonafide celeb after she dated Peter Andre, got kicked off Dancing On Ice after one week, and had herself a Christmas Twitter spat with Christine Bleakley. So has the former WAG got even more showbiz now? There's only one way to find out...

1. Who is the most famous name in your mobile?
Madonna. She likes all the Spanish people and she used to go to Spain a lot. I met her years ago in Barcelona and it's not like we have contact a lot but I still have her number.
10/5. Five for having the Queen of Pop's number and another five for the ma-hoosive clanger of a namedrop.

2. Most bizarre thing you've ever read about yourself?
A friend of mine told me today that she saw online I was moving in with Peter next week. You know Peter right?
5/5. She's at it again.

3. How much is too much for a haircut?
£250 for just a cut. A cut and a colour, let's say £550. Honestly, they do charge this, but I don't pay.
5/5. Well, d'uh. Obviously.

4. What is the weirdest place you've ever been recognised?
In Disneyworld in Florida. People clocked me there with my children and they asked me for a picture and everything.
2/5. Gosh, imagine that!

5. What's the weirdest thing you've been sent by fan?
A love letter with a lock of hair. I hope it was from the head.
3/5. Ewwww, so do we love.

6. What's the best party you've ever been to?
Obviously, the Elton John's honey - the one in his house. Richard Desmond (owner of media company Northern and Shell) invited me to his table last year, so hopefully this year he'll invite me again.
5/5. Fingers crossed...

7. Ever used your fame to get what you want?
No but I do get things sent, you know like little things. I don't go around and say things, it's not my style. It's a bit embarrassing.
2/5. Really?

8. How much cash would it take to get you to pose in the buff?
Ok, how much cash would you give me? (Somewhat put on the spot, HuffPost Celeb replies with a swift 'one mill'). Lets go two million. What do you think? I've got a good body. I'd do it for charity for the PETA campaign, but if you want to see the front, I go two mill.
5/5. *starts pulling out coppers from pocket*

9. Best freebie you ever received?
You know what? Sometimes people send you things, when you go to events and things. I have all this amazing, beautiful and different things I can't really put my finger on anything.
4/5. What do you give a lady who clearly has everything?

10. Ever been chatted up by another celeb?
Yes. (As she refuses to tell us who, we ask her where she usually gets chatted up) In the bedroom.... No, at an event or party but it doesn't happen a lot. That's why I'm single honey. Pray for me.
2/5.

Result: 41/50
That's a How Showbiz Are You? record for Ms Rivas, who's blown all previous contestants out of the water with her subtle-as-a-brick namedropping and tales of 'the Elton Johns'. Elen, we salute you.
