She's the Benefits Street resident who wants to become Britain’s next top supermodel - but has now found herself HOMELESS.
Single mum-of-two Sherrell Dillion, 28, was featured on the hit Channel 4 series which saw her desperately searching for modelling jobs.
But she is now technically homeless following a mice infestation at her home in Eva Road, which is adjacent to where the show was filmed in James Turner Street, Winson Green.
She is currently living in temporary accommodation in Handsworth.
Her plight is a far cry from that of White Dee, who is said to be close to making her first £1 million after becoming a break-out star of the controversial documentary series.
Yet Sherrell wishes her former neighbour nothing but the best. She said: “While White Dee has enjoyed a lot of success, it never really took off for me.
“But Dee still keeps in touch and gives me advice. I am not jealous of her, she’s a lovely woman and I wish her all the success in the world.
“But I would like to have used the show to have bettered myself. I hoped things would take off for me as well.”

She added: “I recently became homeless after the house I was living in became infested with mice. The last straw was when I saw a mouse jump out of a cereal packet. I just took my kids out of there and I haven’t been back.
“I am now living in temporary accommodation in Handsworth while I find a permanent home.”
But a real life rags-to-riches story could still unfold for Sherrell as she has now won a place in the final of modelling competition Top Model Of Colour UK.
She added: “Winning a place in the final is a huge thing for me. It is a massive competition and past winners have gone on to big things. I’m a single mum who wants to do the very best for her kids. I have been striving for a career in modelling for many years and I hope this will be the big break for me.”
Sherrell, a former takeaway worker, always dreamed of being a model and was scouted at the age of 22 but then suffered an ectopic pregnancy that left her bedridden for months.
She has brought up her children Terrell, 10, and Kiwi, five, on her own after escaping a violent relationship.
The final of Top Model of Colour UK takes place on May 30 at the Grand Connaught Rooms in the heart of the West End.
Previous winners have bee signed by major mainstream modelling agencies and graced some of the top magazines in the world. The winner will receive a modelling contract, jewellery, clothes and shoes as well as other prizes.
