Irish Big Brother contestant deems Ireland as quite backward

With Big Brother back on our tellys tomorrow night, here’s a first look at this year’s token Irish contestant, 24-year-old Jade Martina Lynch from Dublin.

According to her bio, Jade doesn’t believe in monogamy and follows a polyamorous lifestyle.

Speaking to Digital Spy, she revealed that she has yet to meet anyone in Ireland that is also polyamorous and brands Ireland as quite backward.

"In Ireland, in general, we're quite backward because it's very Catholic - we're kind of back in the day and there's nobody in Ireland that I've met that's polyamorous”

She wouldn't have sex in the house, though, describing that as "morally wrong".

"Although I'm very free about sex and very sexual, sex to me is very personal and it's on another level of life, so that's very private to me," she said.

In the interview Jade also talks about her hate for the Catholic Church and describes a time that she pretended to be possessed while her grandmother was praying.

"I don't believe in the Catholic religion and I just believe it's a bit of a cult, and they were praying and I was laughing because I thought it was funny that they were praying to a God that doesn't exist," she said.

These views may see her clash with fellow housemate Adjoa Mensah, a 22-year-old model who describes herself as a committed Christian.

The 2015 contestant is also a former model with the Andrea Roche Model Agency in Dublin, and appears in three episodes of the current season of Game of Thrones as an extra.

Catch Jade walking into the house during the show’s launch: ‘Big Brother: Timebomb’ on Tuesday May 12 at 9pm on 3e with a simulcast on TV3 from 10pm – 11pm.
