Former Big Brother contestants Lisa Appleton and Mario Marconi are set to grace the screen again this summer as the pair plan their wedding, which will be broadcast live on Big Brother's Little Brother. The couple will also subsequently appear on Channels 4's popular reality TV show, Wife Swap.Lisa plans to undergo cosmetic surgery before her approaching TV appearances, funded by the prize money from her first appearance on BB last year. Mario proposed to Lisa on the show and at the time she said she was keen to treat herself to lip implants or dermal fillers before the ceremony. The wedding itself is set to be an extravagant affair. The Daily Star reports that the pair are planning an unconventional ceremony and Lisa said: "The bridesmaid is a horse called BB9. Shes a racehorse and she runs for two charities Talk Dont Walk and Guide Dogs For The Blind. "We go and see her at the stables every week. My daughter loves her and Marios children love her. "Shes a stunner. Shes chocolate brown, calm and very elegant. Shes being dressed up. Im toying between leopard and pink. Shes going to look girlie." The BB star underwent breast surgery prior to last year's BB and is no stranger to reality TV shows: she's also appeared on Gladiators, Kitchen Criminals and Body Heat. She's planning more cosmetic surgery to ensure she's looking her best for the big day, which is on course for being packed with reality stars from the show. Lisa added: "Most of the previous housemates will be there because the engagement was on Big Brother."
