She earned herself a reputation as Simon Cowell’s kooky right hand woman during the X-Factor judges house specials.
But it’s been claimed that Sinitta’s zany personality has led to her being axed from the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ line-up due to her ‘ridiculous’ demands.
The 53-year-old singer was reportedly in talks to appear on the Channel 5 show later this year but her unusual requests prompted bosses to look elsewhere.

Zany: Sinitta’s zany personality has led to her being axed from the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ line-up because of her ‘ridiculous’ demands
The Daily Star reports that among her request were to implement a swearing ban, a bodyguard to watch her sleep, and regular visits from her pets.
Speaking about the ‘So Macho’ hitmaker’s dismissal, a source told the newspaper : ‘We were thrilled to get Sinitta on board as she is a laugh and could let slip some embarrassing secret about Simon Cowell.
‘But her demands were the most ridiculous we’ve ever seen.’
MailOnline have contacted Sinitta’s representatives. A spokesperson for Channel 5 declined to comment.

It has also been reported that ‘The Real Housewives of Cheshire’ star Dawn Ward is set to appear on the show in the summer.
But the reality star’s history with Sinitta, which has seen them clash in the past, is rumoured to be another reason why the vocalist will not live in the infamous house.
And Sinitta is not willing to waiver any of her requests, especially as she has claimed she has been asked to appear on the programme ‘every year’.

She previously told The Sunday People: ‘I’ve given them my rider, but there have been complaints.
‘I just asked for a few things that would make it nice because they’ve asked me every year and I’ve always said no. But if these things could happen, then I could do it.
‘The producer said it’s the most ridiculous rider they’d ever had. It has gone a bit quiet, I must admit. But if you don’t ask, you don’t get.’
Standing firm: Sinitta previously revealed that her demands have put off CBB bosses in the past
