Former porn star and ex-gang member in Big Brother line-up
Contestants revealed in Channel 5 show
A FORMER porn star, a plus-size model and a one-time LA gang member took their place among the new intake of Big Brother housemates.
The 16 contestants headed into their new home for the coming weeks as Channel 5 launched yet another series of the show – the fourth within the space of a year.
The opening programme saw the first contestant to enter the Big Brother house, Deana Uppal, forced to nominate three of her fellow housemates to face the public vote, although she had only just met them.
After much deliberation, the reigning Miss India UK chose Conor, a 24-year-old personal trainer from Derry, Victoria, a 41-year-old plus-size model from Berkshire, and Lydia, a 25-year-old dancer from Cheshire.
In the house with them is former porn star Benedict Garrett, 32, who hit the headlines when it emerged he was working as a stripper while teaching in an east London school.
The line-up also includes former gang member Adam who was born in Britain and brought up in Los Angeles, where he became a member of the LA Crips gang.
