You may already recognise the face of Irish Big Brother 2015 contestant Jade Martina Lynch - she has been pounding the pageant and modelling circuit since 2009.

The 24-year-old model from Coolock is the only Irish contestant poised to enter the Big Brother house tomorrow (Tuesday) night and her big break comes after six years of hard graft modelling in Dublin.

Back in August 2009 she posed in a bikini as a Ms Planet Beach contestant before making it to the finals in the Miss Universe Ireland contest two years later where she was up against Kelly Donegan, who went on to appear in Tallafornia.

That same year she did promotional work for Meteor, appearing in a photoshoot with top models Georgia Salpa, Roz Purcell, Louise Johnston, Sarah Kavanagh, as well as Kate McDaid and Hannah Dervanne.

Pictured at the launch of Meteor's 7 Deadly Things campaign and Meteor's great student offers are (from 1 to 7) Georgia Salpa (1), Louise Johnston (2), Sarah Kavanagh (3), Roz Purcell (4), Jade Lynch (5) Kate Mc Daid (6) and Hannah Dervanne (7).

In 2013 she competed to become Miss Bucks to represent Bucks Townhouse in the Miss Ireland competition.  She made it to the final three but was beaten by Kate Monahan from Skerries.

She was also crowned Miss Vanilla in 2013 with Jim Corr as one of the judges.

However, it seems Jade is more than ready to move on from her modelling past, although she has stressed that taking part in Big Brother is not solely about boosting her profile.

"That's not my main reason for doing this," she told DigitalSpy. "My main reason for doing this, and I want to stress this, is that it's a life journey, it's a life experience, it opens up my eyes to different aspects of life, different emotions, and then on the backhand yes, would be to lift my career.

"Yes, that comes secondary to me being lifted as a person as opposed to my career."

Jade is also planning on dispelling the myth that there is nothing to models beyond their looks.

"Models are so put on the back hand because people expect us to be dumb because we just look good and that's all we can have," she said. "Absolutely not. No, not a hope. I have tonnes of personality - although I do think I'm quite boring at times!"

The feisty brunette also revealed that she wont' have time for anyone in the house who "thinks they can get through life with just how they look".

Of her own modelling past, and the obsession with the physical, she added, "We are all about our looks. That's why we are wanted, only because of our looks.

"They don't care what degrees we have, they don't care if we're amazing people. And that's one of the downfalls in the modelling industry but I think we're coming out of that now.

"I think we are seeing models with personality and accepting their personalities as opposed to just how they look."

Jade is also set to cause a stir given she has declared herself polyamorous, which means she's open to love and sexual relationships with more than one person at once.
