|Born:||February 2, 1981|
She first came to fame as a contestant on the fifth season of the UK reality television show Big Brother. Previously, Bass had worked as a mortgage adviser. She was formerly a pupil at Gosforth High School in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
Appearance on Big Brother 5
During her time in the Big Brother House, she was a member of a group of contestants who referred to themselves as the 'Lip Gloss Bitches', along with Marco Sabba, Emma Greenwood and eventual winner Nadia Almada.
She was best known for her the spell in the bedsit with Greenwood, as well as her relationship with Stuart Wilson. They allegedly became the first couple to have sex live on British television. During an interview with Davina McCall on The Charlotte Church Show, aired on 2nd March 2007, she nodded in response to being asked whether she had indeed had sex with Stuart under the table in the Big Brother house.
Over Christmas 2004 Bass played The Princess in the pantomime Aladin at the Alban Arena in St Albans.
Bass stated on leaving the house that her ambition was to become a glamour model. She had breast implants and was employed as the face of Television X, appearing in advertising campaigns, magazines, commercials and as a presenter. Shortly after this, her dreams of being a glamour model were fulfilled when she appeared for the first time on the cover of a "lads' mag", Nuts. She has since appeared in topless, bikini and lingerie photo shoots in several other lads mags such as Zoo Weekly and Loaded.
Bass has recently appeared as a contestant on Celebrity Weakest Link and filmed a small role in the film I Want Candy which stars Carmen Electra.
In early 2007 Bass moved into the commercial modelling market after working with the online clothing store Discoo.
Private life and alleged promiscuity
After the end of her time in Big Brother, Bass dated fellow contestant Stuart Wilson. They subsequently separated. Since then she had liaisons with a number of other male minor celebrities and footballers, including Duncan James and Lee Otway. She allegedly engaged in sexual acts with both EastEnders actor Robert Kazinsky and Manchester United player Kieran Richardson in the same evening, as a result of which The Sun newspaper described her as a "slapper".
In December 2006, Bass was photographed attacking a man who attempted to enter a taxi Bass claimed she was attempting to hail.
