Big Brother 6Edit
Big Brother told the housemates that the nominations on Day 46 were optional. However, this was a lie. As always, nominations were compulsory; and those that did not nominate would face the public vote. As Orlaith did not nominate, she faced the public vote. On Day 50, it was revealed to the House that Vanessa and Makosi had received the most public votes after receiving 26% and 47% of the vote respectively. On Day 53, after receiving four nominations from her fellow housemates, Orlaith faced the public vote. On Day 57, Orlaith survived the public vote and Science was evicted from the House with 50.5% of the vote. On Day 64, Orlaith survived the public vote and Kemal was evicted with 51.1% of the vote. On Day 60, Orlaith was nominated for eviction, after receiving just one nomination to-save from her fellow housemates. On Day 64, Orlaith survived the public vote and Kemal was evicted with 51.1% of the vote. The following day, on Day 65, Orlaith decided to voluntarily leave the House.

Orlaith has since embarked on a career as a glamour model, appearing half-naked in weekly men's magazines such as FHM, Nuts and Zoo. Orlaith was one of the competitors in the 2006 Miss Great Britain contest, but, despite being favourite for the title lost out to Danielle Lloyd, Miss Warrington.
In February 2007, Orlaith gave birth to a baby girl named Eva with her lucky fiancé, Irish property developer and presenter Gary McCausland. In April 2007, it was announced that the pair had split and Orlaith had returned to Belfast. Orlaith and Gary also have a son, Anthony, born in early 2009.
