AJ Odudu on Big Brother, boob slips and DM marriage proposals

Mani Minutes: The co-host of ITV’s reality show reboot heads to the nail salon for a fresh set of gels and a chat about her new gig.

AJ Odudu, you are not live on TV. It’s OK to swear.

To be honest, we didn’t need to brief Big Brothers new co-host when she visited Queens Hair & Beauty salon in Peckham, South London, for our video series Mani Minutes. Having spent the last decade working in live broadcasting – from hosting BB spin-off Big Brother’s Bit on the Side to presenting The Big Breakfast reboot – Odudu’s a seasoned pro when it comes to being in front of the camera. Visiting Queen’s ahead of Big Brothers new series launch last weekend, all she needed was a fresh, eviction-night-ready manicure.

April Arabella, founder of Cherry Bomb Nails, was on hand to help with that. And while she was there, we took the opportunity to probe Odudu on some burning questions we had about Big Brother and presenting live TV.
