Ex Celebrity Big Brother Contenstants
Big Brother is back! Please do not swear. With the revelation that Big Brother is returning, this time on ITV, let’s delve into our history. Let’s see which of our celebs have been on the spin-off Celebrity Big Brother.
Described as the most well-known transgender person in Britain, Kellie Maloney is best known for managing Lennox Lewis and helping with earn the title of undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. After a long and extensive career in Boxing promotion, Kellie retired in 2013 and began her gender reassignment. This was completed in 2015.
Fresh from her big reveal, Kellie joined Celebrity Big Brother in 2014 and was paid a staggering £400,000; the highest of any of the celebrity houseguests. After clashing with certain housemates, including Leslie Jordan and reality star Frenchy Morgan, Kellie outlasted them all and was the fifth evictee.
Patsy Kensit is not one to shy away from the spotlight. At as young as 4, she started her career in TV, appearing in a string of Birds Eye adverts. A star of TV, film and theatre, Patsy is most known for being a series regular in soaps Emmerdale and Holby City and in films such as The Great Gatsby (1974) with Mia Farrow and Absolute Beginners (1986) with David Bowie.
A past Strictly Come Dancing contestant as well, Patsy appeared on the 15th series of Celebrity Big Brother in 2015. During her time, Patsy openly discussed her love life and how she is a “hopeless romantic”. After spending 21 days in the Big Brother house, Patsy was eliminated with her head held high, glad to be out of what she called “a war zone”. You can now catch Patsy on your screens on shows such as Loose Women and ITV’s This Morning.
Now for something completely different. Bennett Arron has primarily worked behind the scenes as a comedy writer for various mediums, including Jack Whitehall’s stand-up, The Slammer (BBC One), The 11 O’Clock Show (Channel 4) and has supported Ricky Gervais on his arena tours. After becoming a victim of identity theft, Bennett did not let this bring him down. Instead, he used his platform to highlight how easy it is to steal someone’s identity and directed and presented the Channel 4 documentary How to Steal an Identity, which was BAFTA shortlisted.
Before moving to Channel 5, Bennett Arron was a present on Big Brother’s Little Brother. The spin-off followed activities surrounding the Big Brother house and its housemates. It was shown every Sunday morning and during the week on E4.
