Big Brothers Farida put henna on King Charles and had career help from him
Big Brother star Farida is putting her makeup artist work on hold as she joins a number of housemates for a brand new series.
She's signed up to the first ever ITV-hosted Big Brother series after it was relaunched under the channel five years since it was axed. Farida is hoping to represent the Asian culture as she said she believes it's underrepresented.

While she joins Big Brother in the hopes to win over the public in a bid to win the series, it seems they won't be the hardest people she's ever had to swoon. Farida, who grew in popularity on TikTok last year, previously explained that she's had some dealings with King Charles.
Speaking to The Sun about her career last year, she said: "I set up my business through The Princes' Trust 22 years ago. I even put henna on King Charles, when he was the Prince of Wales."
The 50-year-old makeup artist, from Wolverhampton, had support in setting up the business through the charity founded in 1976 by King Charles III to help vulnerable young people get their lives back on track. It has often helped entrepreneurs get themselves set up in the business world.
Farida kickstarted her company and later moved onto TikTok to share hair and makeup tips and post transformations from her various clients. She covers all bases from makeovers, henna and mentoring – and she's looking to further her plans if she wins the reality show.
She currently teaches the beauty industry to students to support the development of their own businesses. If she wins, she's hoping to set up even more training courses.
Farida said: "I’d probably invest [the money] in setting up online training courses to teach hair and makeup. I'll need to be smart and invest it properly because, don't forget, I'm a businesswoman."
Elsewhere Farida stated she thinks people could feel intimidated by her "potential" to win. She's adamant that her stint on the TV show will show people that Muslims aren't suppressed.
She said: "A lot of people think that wearing a headscarf might stop you from having opportunities, whereas for me, it's been completely the opposite. I embrace it with confidence and it's actually given me lots of opportunities. I want to let people know that us Muslims, we really aren't suppressed. I'm far from suppressed – I used to be a holiday rep!"
Farida is joining 15 other housemates in the new series of Big Brother as they try to win over the public for a cash prize.
Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
