Shane Jenek has made quite the impression on the Celebrity Big Brother house alongside his glamorous alter-ego, Courtney Act.
But it seems as though Shane had a little help on his journey from boyhood to drag superstardom, as his official social media accounts let slip today.
Sharing a throwback snap of the 35-year-old entertainer and reality star, it outed the Australian-born star for having worn a rather eye-grabbing orthodontic head brace.
Sat in a blue checked shirt on the sofa, Shane is recognizable – but clearly is yet to fully bloom in the glamazon stakes.
Whoever is running Shane’s account while he is in the house is clearly not afraid to poke fun at the former RuPaul’s Drag Race star.
‘There but for the grace of orthodontics go I
#cbb #cbbshanej,’ read the caption attached to the picture.
Shane/Courtney has so far been one of the standout housemates on the show, and has been seen as a positive force in CBB – which many had written off, thanks to some recent lacklustre line-ups.
From sharing his views on gender identity and sexuality through to his endearing friendship and flirtation with Apprentice star Andrew Brady, the drag artist has been at the centre of the action this year.
It’s hardly surprising though, given Courtney made a headline-hitting arrival in the house when the men entered the CCTV compound on day four.
Strutting along the walkway outside the CBB house, Courtney suffered a massive wardrobe malfunction which saw his full-tuck exposed.
More recently though, Shane has been growing very close to Andrew, and in a recent instalment of CBBBOTS the businessman was seen making a confession about the Aussie star and his drag persona.
In a clip from the diary room, Andrew can be seen saying: ‘Courtney’s hot and Courtney’s a little bit of a minx.
‘I’m not taking anything away from Shane, he’s a good looking lad, but when you’ve had a couple of beers and you see Courtney…. Wow.
‘Big Brother, you need to stop giving me alcohol when I’m around Courtney though because you never know.’
