Deborah is driven and ambitious which she says is down to her mother’s mantra ‘If you want the sweetest banana you have to climb the highest tree’. Deborah’s sister Hannah is also a housemate, and Deborah confesses she always gets involved in her sister’s ‘battles’.
Deborah prides herself on being a strong-willed woman who isn’t afraid to speak her mind and will not be disrespected by anyone. She says her Nigerian background has given her a strong sense of values and her family mean everything to her.
On why she wants to do Big Brother: “I want to show the world single mums can be ambitious, successful and don’t have to shy away and be locked up in our houses.”
