Chantelle made headlines when she became the only non-celebrity to not only enter the Celebrity Big Brother 4 house, but also win the series. As always, there was a catch with her entrance… Chantelle had to convince the celebrity housemates that she was, in fact, a celebrity. Her cover story was that she was a member of a fictional band called Kandy Floss. She successfully fooled her housemates winning the chance to stay in the house. During her time she struck up a close friendship with Ordinary Boys singer, Preston, leaving viewers hanging onto their will they/won't they relationship.

After a turbulent start to their relationship Chantelle and Preston soon got together after the show had finished. The pair got married... but then a divorce followed shortly after. Although Chantelle claims to have loved Preston with every bone in her body.

Since the divorce Chantelle has had a number of high profile flings including with footballer Jermaine Defoe and BB9's Dale.

Since winning Celebrity Big Brother 4 Chantelle had her own post Big Brother show called Chantelle: Living the Dream. Presenting roles have included The Paul O'Grady Show and her own dating show called Chantelle's Dream Dates where she gave girls a makeover ready to go on a date with one of three male contestants. Other TV appearances include Hotel Babylon, The Friday Night Project, The Weakest Link, The Dark Side of Fame with Piers Morgan, 8 Out of 10 Cats, The Mint and Snog, Marry, Avoid.

She's also published her own autobiography, Living the Dream, which was a best seller in 2006 and has written several columns in magazines. To add to her little empire Chantelle has also opened her own clothing store in Great Yarmouth.

Winner of Big Brother 5 Nadia stole the nation's hearts when she became the first transsexual housemate. Viewers fell in love with the Portuguese star for her emotional Diary Room entries as she wrestled with her feelings about her 'secret'. Keeping it from her fellow housemates she worried about their reaction and that of the wider world outside.

She was crowned the winner after 71 days in the Big Brother house with a whopping 74% of the vote and said at the time she finally felt 'accepted' by the British public.

As a housemate she was famous for showering in her high heels, being 'fabulous darling' and creating her little gang the 'lip gloss bitches' with Michelle Bass and Marco.

When asked in 2008 if she would ever go back into the house Nadia said: "if you are the ultimate winner then you are the most amazing person ever." But will the public agree?

Almada went on to record a single ntitled "A Little Bit of Action", which reached Number 27 in the UK in December 2004. She also made a guest appearance in the soap opera Hollyoaks turning on the Christmas Lights. She entered the Big Brother Australia house visiting the three finalists during week 14 and has made various appearances on televised chat shows and even made her own Latino inspired Dance/Fitness video, Latino Dance Workout, which she released in 2004.

In 2005, Nadia was a contestant on the Channel Five reality show, Trust Me...I'm A Holiday Rep. The following year she was a celebrity guest on a four-day stay on Channel 4's reality TV show, Fool Around With...; her goal was to decipher who out of several male contestants was single, enabling them to win £10,000.
Nadia is currently working on her own jewellery line which she's designed herself and describes as 'high end'. She's also practicing for the Eurovision Song Contest where she hopes to represent the UK. She's currently single and says she's older, wiser…and still fabulous.

Swedish born TV presenter Ulrika shot to fame on British TV as a weathergirl in 1989. She became a presenter of hit shows such as Gladiators, The National Lottery, Eurovision and Miss World. She has also been the long running team captain and butt of all the jokes on Shooting Stars with Reeves and Mortimer. She has also appeared on Dancing on Ice and Comic Relief Does Fame Academy.

Her personal life has always fallen under much scrutiny as she has been married four times, having a child with each of her husbands, and has had relationships with numerous high profile men including footballer Stan Collymore and Sven Goran Eriksson.

Ulrika won celebrity Big Brother 6 after creating some classic BB moments in the house such as singing Endless Love with Verne Troyer and her fractious relationship with Coolio. The unassuming winner admitted she only took part in the series for the money but says it is one of the weirdest but best experiences of her life. She constantly prepared herself for eviction and never thought she would win, but did so with 57 % of the final vote. As results were announced, Ulrika said "Oh my god, that's bonkers".

Queen of the tantrum, Nikki's diary room histrionics remain unsurpassed by any Big Brother contestant since. Her famous rants and raves about being too cold, her need for bottled water and most memorably the arrival of Susie who won the golden ticket with her shout of 'Who is she? Where did you find her?' burnt Nikki into the nation's brains.

She also formed an unlikely but endearing relationship with eventual winner of BB7, Tourette's sufferer Pete. They dated for a month after the show ended. She was evicted from the house on Day 58 with 37.2% of the vote but is one of only a handful of housemates to ever re-enter the Big Brother house. She was voted back into the 'House Next Door' with three other ex-housemates. She was then chosen to return to the main house by the surviving contestants and was reinstated as an eligible housemate. She subsequently finished in fifth place, with 6.5% of the final vote.

Due to her temper tantrums, Nikki was given her own reality show after leaving the house, titled Princess Nikki, which saw her attempting several jobs to see whether she would keep her job for the day or be sacked due to her infamous tantrums. She has also since appeared on Celebrity Scissorhands, 8 Out Of 10 Cats and The Weakest Link. She was also the 12th most 'written about' person of 2006 in the UK, according to a Channel 4 poll.

Nikki came back to Big Brother as a reporter for Big Brother's Little Brother 8, as part of 'The B Team' and additionally appeared in Big Brother 10 (2009) as part of the tenth anniversary celebrations, competing a Silent Disco task against Karly.

She has written a column for OK Hot Stars magazine since 2007 and will be writing her News of the World column from inside the house. She has written a book about her life long struggle with anorexia to help other sufferers, and now regularly DJs in clubs and bars around the UK.

Country girl Josie could be the housemate to bring fun and laughter to the House with her big personality and wicked tales of mischief. Everyone in her village already sees her as a celebrity, since in her words 'they all know and love her'.

Josie is the life and soul of the party. Some of her more infamous exploits include pulling a moonie at a monk in Thailand, waking up in a graveyard and breaking her arm doing a combat roll...

Fiercely independent, Josie left home at the age of 14 to live on her Aunt's farm, where she still lives, in a 'wooden cabin' with her own horse and cart. Josie used to be a successful financial sales rep earning well, but now she MCs at house parties at the weekend, drives a 's**t-mobile' and hates her job saying 'I've lost my game and turned into a loser'.

Josie grew up around horses as her Mum breaks in horses for a living and she spent her childhood travelling around the country visiting horse fairs.

Ever the naughty schoolgirl, she was deemed a disruptive influence and expelled from two schools. She believes in ghosts and claims to see them often. She says she hates bullies, attention seekers, moaners and cheats.
