Taking part in a reality TV show can be a risky move for a celebrity.
You could end up like Ann Widdecombe, being slammed by the ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ judges on a weekly basis, or Made In Chelsea’s Hugo Taylor, who was reduced to tears by the ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here’ trials, at an embarrassingly early point in the series.
But for every Anne or Hugo, there’s another star who has managed to use a show to do some good - well, to their own reputations anyway.
It’s not unheard of for someone to enter the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house or ‘I’m A Celeb’ jungle as a villain, only to show the public that maybe they’re not so bad after all.
