Dubliner Savannah O'Reilly is the newest addition to the Big Brother house.

The blonde singer, who hails from the Liberties, entered the house as one of three new potential housemates on Tuesday night and was the first to earn permanent housemate status.

The other two, Isabelle Warburton (21) and Sam Chaloner (24) are still competing for the second permanent spot.

Savannah (26) has signed with manager Joe Simpson, Jessica Simpson's dad although she has yet to release any music.  She claims to be mates with Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber, who is taking to the stage at the RDS in her hometown tonight.

She's single and has admitted she fancies Kieran as he's the most chilled out.  However, Isabelle claims she has already hooked up with him.

Savannah's real name is Shauna and back in 2011 she went by her stage name Beauella and was tipped to become the next Imelda May. 

She gave her debut performance on Kildare TV with a rendition of Body On the Floor and was then asked to take to the stage for the annual Share a Dream concert in the RDS.

She was also a guest presenter on RTE's kids programme Elev8.

Savannah left school after her Junior Cert to work on singing full time and she enrolled in a three year course at Performers College in London.

It seems she's a welcome addition to the Big Brother mix.  On Big Brother's Little Brother, panelist Trisha Goddard predicted she would be good for the house.

“I think it’s wonderful news. Especially for Joe,” she said.

“I think with Savannah she will be seen as a strong person. So people will be seeking to make an alliance with her to get them through the next stage.

“It’s like the new popular girl at school. Everybody wants to be in their gang,” she said.

And viewers were thrilled she made the cut too.

As was Joe Simpson:
