Former recruiter joins the Celebrity Big Brother house

Celebrity Big Brother returned to our screens this week, and the recruitment industry boasts a former recruiter in the ‘stellar’ line-up.

Providing further proof that recruiters get everywhere, ex-Made In Chelsea star, model, DJ and presenter Ashley James is among the contestants for this latest series, dubbed ‘the year of the woman’.

According to her LinkedIn profile, it transpires James did an eight-month stint as a recruitment and training department manager at fashion chain Abercrombie & Fitch back in 2011. Who knew?!

The all-woman CBB line-up boasts the likes of ex-Tory MP Ann Widdecombe, Boris Johnson’s sister Rachel Johnson and Amanda Barrie, Mike Baldwin’s wife in Coronation Street and former Carry On star.

So come on Ashley – we’re all rooting for you!
