Yvette "Sunshine" Martyn[1] was a housemate in Big Brother 11 (UK).


Describing herself as "beautiful and intelligent", Yvette reckons she is a welcome addition to the Big Brother House because she is a combination of beauty and brains.

With one year left of her medical degree, she has taken a year out to study medical journalism in London.

She said she will be Doctor Sunshine when she graduates and people call her Doctor Sparkle in the hospital where she works now because she spreads "sunshine" around the ward.

The steadfast Tory wants to be Prime Minister, despite admitting her lack of political know-how, and has had three near-death experiences, including being mugged at knifepoint in Tunisia, an accidental overdose on anti-malarial drugs in India and being bitten by a poisonous spider in Australia.

Although she fancies footballer Ronaldo, she said: "I would not make a good footballer’s wife".

Age: 24.

From: Peterborough.

Occupation: Medical student.

Love Life: Single.

Likes: Travelling, her pet Chihuahua Tinkerbell and muscular men with brains.

Dislikes: Living with girls because of the arguments.

Why She Will Annoy Us: She gives herself nine out of 10 for both beauty and brains and her constant optimism could grate on viewers.[2]
