UK: Big Brother contestant wins asylum fight

An immigrant from Zimbabwe comes to the UK to work as a nurse, getting a visa allowing her to work only as a nurse. She then decides to appear on the TV show Big Brother. Nothing wrong with that. As this goes against her visa terms, however, she is given notice of deportation. Sounds logical so far.. the only problem is that she now claims her appearance on the show, which included sexual 'antics', puts her in danger should she go back to her home country. She applies for asylum and her application is rejected, at which point she appeals. The central London asylum and immigration tribunal overrules and gives her asylum status.

Now.. what is wrong with this story?
