See all the ex-housemates and find out what they're up to today...
What’s happened to our favourite Big Brother contestants from 2004 – 2006? We’ve found out how life is treating the housemates these days.
2004 winner Nadia was the first ever transsexual housemate. After the show she suffered from severe depression. Now recovered, she’s currently producing her own jewellery brand.
‘Brian for a long time was my favourite housemate because he made me laugh, laugh, laugh – and then Nadia overtook Brian,’ says host Davina McCall. ‘There was something really joyous about her in a really bad mood!’
Other series 5 contestants tried to stay in the public eye. Michelle had a successful glamour modelling career after splitting from fellow housemate Stuart while Victor appeared on Celebrity Poker club. Most have returned to everyday jobs.
Anthony beat competing series 6 Big Brother contestants to be crowned winner. He still makes nightclub appearances, still dances and is also a DJ.
Makosi has had a particularly eventful time since appearing on the 2005 series. She’s confessed to being paid for sex to pay off huge debts, reportedly had a fling with Russell Brand and fought deportation officials to stay in the UK. She was reportedly last seen outside a Jobcentre.
Fellow contestants from the same year mostly keep a much lower profile now.
In 2006, Tourette syndrome sufferer Pete won Big Brother. He briefly dated housemate Nikki before marrying his ex-girlfriend Cherry earlier this year, as seen on reality show Four Weddings. He’s still touring with his band The Love Dogs.
While Pete’s romance with Nikki – who continues to battle anorexia – didn’t last, Mikey and Grace are now happily married.
Some series 7 Big Brother contestants have remained in showbiz, like Aisleyne and Imogen. Others such as Michael, Jonathan and Bonnie soon faded back into obscurity.
