Age: 40
Location: Leicester
Occupation: Ex HM Forces
This straightforward ex-serviceman amputee spends his time fighting for the causes he believes in. He currently lives in Leicester with his second wife of 14 years and has eight children.
In 1989 when Steve was 20 he was injured by a bomb whilst on patrol in Belfast. He lost both of his legs as well as an eye. He now wears a black glass eye which his kids love as he looks like a pirate. Steve says he chooses to wear shorts exposing his metal legs. "I purposely walk around looking the way I do. It's better to be open about who you are."
Despite his disability sporty Steve is a transatlantic yacht racer and recently took part in the Royal Ocean Yacht Race with an amputee crew of ex-servicemen personal. This was a particular achievement as he can't even swim.
Steve has been unemployed for the last 20 years but would never want to sit behind a desk - he's more of an outdoorsy type. He feels very strongly about, and lobbies for, soldiers who have been injured.
He hates stuck up, self opionated, political people "who think they know a lot about things when they don't". In the house he won't need to be fussed over but his fellow housemates may "need to pick me up if I fall over".

can't see him being up for eviction unless it's a quirky BB game, purely because of who he is and what he's been through - and achieved.

However, he's not doing massive amounts or getting much airtime. He could probably speak up a bit more and get invovled but i suspect he feels like he's around his kids with some of the tantrums!
