A Dublin woman is in the final of Big Brother Italy

Fans of Big Brother may not have extended their interest in the show as far as watching the Italian version, but it's still nice to hear that one of our own is impressing on it, so much so, she has made it to the final.

Irish model Alessia Macari will now compete for the grand prize of €100,000 in the final on the 7th of November on Italian TV.

23-year-old Alessia grew up in Dublin, but spent her summers in Italy and moved there for a job two years ago. No doubt that last name is familiar to many as well, and yes, Alessia's family own the Macari chipper empire in Ireland, while her cousin is former Dublin Housewives star, Virginia Macari. Aleesia also dated Republic of Ireland and Newcastle defender Ciaran Clarke.

Speaking to The Sun, her mum Lisa Borsa said: "I cried I was so happy. You see Alessia is so sincere and there is a lot of badness going on in the house.

"It’s incredible she is through to the final. She is only in Italy two years but got more votes from the public than some of the best known personalities on Italian TV."


Aleesia is currently second-favourite to win, so fingers crossed she can go all the way.
