It has been revealed that Big Brother is to make a stunning return to our screens after a five year hiatus.
The popular reality TV show is making a comeback next year after being a such a huge hit during the 00s. It is known for its eccentric housemates and fans cannot contain their excitement to see who enters the house this time around.
Previously hosted by Davina McCall and then more recently Emma Willis, fans are still waiting for a lot of details about the new version of the show. With that in mind, we wondered where are the past winners of the iconic show now?
Craig was the first ever winner of Big Brother in 2000. Famously, Craig donated his entire prize fund to his close friend with Down’s Syndrome, Joanne Harris, which funded her heart and lung transplant.
Now, the reality TV show winner is a DIY expert, appearing on multiple DIY-style TV shows as well as features on This Morning. He also creates DIY YouTube videos along with his wife.
Winning first on the second series of Big Brother, then again in 2010 for Ultimate Big Brother, he has been the only person to ever win the show twice. In 2020, Brian participated in the Irish edition of Dancing with the stars, becoming the fourth celebrity to leave the show
Kate was the first female winner of the TV show in 2002. Since her success, she now has a job in the radio industry, working at hugely popular stations such as Capital FM and Virgin Radio.
Nadia was the fifth winner of Big Brother, and was the first transgender winner. After winning the hearts of the public she attempted to launch a music career, which sadly didn’t take-off. She then entered the house back in 2010 for Ultimate Big Brother, where she didn’t quite reach the top, coming 10th overall.
In 2005 it was Anthony’s turn to exit the Big Brother house as a winner. Branded as “unrecognisable” after he latest media appearance, the reality TV star went on to become a hair stylist and business owner, even running his own barber shop and bar for the last five years.
Pete is one of the best-known winners as he became the winner of the 2006 series. Known for his fling in the house with Nikki Grahame, who sadly passed away last year.
Since his appearance on Big Brother, Pete appeared on The Jeremey Kyle Show in 2015 admitting that he had a ketamine addiction. He then started his very own cleaning services where he charges people £100 an hour.
Pete has since turned to acting and appeared in some low-budget films, including horrors Female Zombie Riot and Crispy’s Curse. A couple of years later in 2019, he moved back to Brighton and the popular music scene in the seaside resort to start hosting his own karaoke night every week.
Eighth winner in the Big Brother house Brian tried to launch a music career following his reality TV appearance, which failed. However a few years later he hit headlines after suing the producers of fellow reality show TOWIE, which he claimed was his own idea. Now Brian lives a quiet life as he has deleted all his social media channels.
Rachel was the winner of Big Brother 9, and the Welsh television personality kept out of the limelight and returned to normal life. The last thing reported about Rachel is that she is now a headteacher at a school in Wales.
Josie was the eleventh Big Brother winner, and to this day is a regular on our screens. Her bubbly personality landed her a place on many TV shows after her win, and now she features regularly on ITV morning shows This Morning and Loose Women.
From time-to-time Josie even hosts This Morning where she has become a much-loved and recognised member of the morning show.
Luke was the first trans man to win Big Brother, and since leaving the house has become an advocate for LGBT rights. The winner of series 13 now has twins with his partner who he often shares updates with over on his Twitter page.
Helen won the 15th series of the show, and has since been very outspoken, claiming she had a threesome with footballer Wayne Rooney. Since the show ended, she has had a column in the Daily Star, as well as releasing an autobiography about her life before Big Brother.
Since leaving the house, Jason, who was a stunt double in Marvel’s Guardian of the Galaxy has had a full blown career in front of the camera. Starring in feature films, The Serpent, Essex Vendetta, Stranger in the Worlde and more.
Cameron was the final winner of Big Brother in 2018, who was also the youngest person to win the reality TV show, with a prize fund of a huge £100,000. Cameron seems to have gone back to living a normal life, often posting on his Instagram
Other winners such as series 18’s Isabelle Warburton, series 14 winner Sam Evans and series 10’s Sophie Reade have chosen to keep out of the limelight since their victories.
Other winners such as series 16’s Chloe Woodburn have also kept their life pretty private, but she also revealed she was engaged and had given birth to her first child in 2017. And Aaron Allard Morgan who won the show in 2011, went back to normal life as he used the prize money to run a bar in Weston-super-Mare.
