See all the ex-housemates and find out what they're up to today...


What’s happened to our favourite Big Brother contestants from 2007 – 2009? We’ve found out how life is treating the housemates these days.

2007 winner Brian has done some modelling, but is currently unemployed. He hopes to launch a TV career and a beauty brand. The loveable Essex lad dated twin Amanda, but they split in 2008. He’s since appeared on Harry Hill’s TV Burp regularly.

Fellow contestants Chanelle and Ziggy dated after the show but had a bitter split. Ziggy then had a brief romance with Hollyoaks’ Jennifer Metcalfe while Chanelle is seeing Jack Tweed.

Twins Sam and Amanda signed to a top modelling agency and others like Charley and Amy did some photoshoots too. Housemates such as Kara-Louise and David returned to everyday lives.

In 2008 Rachel beat series 9 Big Brother contestants to win the show. Despite being branded ‘boring’, she made several TV appearances but has now gone back to teaching.

There were some milestone contestants in the 9th season. First ever blind housemate Mikey was runner-up and has since been doing charity work and radio presenting.

Mario hit the news when he came to the rescue of a pregnant woman who was attacked by a gang with knives while Lisa received minor press attention after she and fiancé Mario found a pecan weevil in a bowl of cornflakes.

Down-to-earth Sophie won Big Brother in 2009. She became a lads’ magazine favourite and is continuing to keep busy with modelling work.

Romances between contestants didn’t last long after series 10. Karly dumped Kenneth, Tom and Noirin soon split and Rodrigo accused Charlie of using their relationship to get publicity.

Several housemates have pursued fashion careers. Lisa modelled at a Vivienne Westwood show and Hira is still a designer. Others have gone into a whole variety of jobs.
