Luisa Zissman has revealed that she was diagnosed a sex addict after her sexual urges started to take over her life.

The 'Celebrity Big Brother' star made the revelation after she was asked by fellow housemate Sam Faiers if she was hooked on having sex.

“Not any more," she said. "I was diagnosed a sex addict. I think it is when it interferes with your life that you get diagnosed as a sex addict.”

According to The Sun, the 25-year-old 'Apprentice' runner-up had to seek therapy after she finished filming Lord Sugar's TV show.

A source told the paper: “Luisa prides herself on being a serious businesswoman but she was struggling to cope with her urges.

“It was massively impacting on her work life as she found herself having to invent meetings so she could meet up with a partner and have a romp.

“She knew there was no way she was going to achieve her goals if she carried on the way she was.”

Luisa has been open about her love of women in the past, even saying in her introduction VT upon entering the house: "I’m very open to exploring my sexuality. I think it’s good to be a sexually empowered woman.

"I love girls, but I wouldn’t have a relationship with a girl. I’ve been with both guys and girls," she added.
