Bez

Mark "Bez" Berry (born 1964) is a British dancer and percussionist formerly of the alternative rock band Happy Mondays, who entered the house on Day 1. Whilst in the house, he struck up close bonds with Brigitte and Jeremy. On Day 18, Bez left the house as winner with 54% of the public vote, beating Brigitte and Kenzie.

At the time of entering the house, Bez was formally bankrupt at the time under his real name. After winning the £50,000 prize money, he used some of it to improve the engine of his London black cab. The UK edition of car TV show, Pimp My Ride later 'pimped' it out for him which included painting it purple and installing a DVD player.

In March 2008, he declared bankrupt for the second time.[1]

His chosen charity was the DEC Tsunami Earthquake Appeal.

Brigitte Nielsen

Brigitte Nielsen (born 1963) is a Danish actress, who entered the house on Day 1. She was once married to Sylvester Stallone. During her time in the house she became close to Lisa and Caprice. She was known for her use of her catchphrase "diggity".

On Day 5, Jackie Stallone, Brigitte's former mother-in-law, entered the house. Before entering the house, Jackie and Brigitte engaged in a very public feud when the American tabloids reported that Jackie was against her son's relationship with Nielson and that Brigitte blamed Jackie for the divorce. Brigitte was visibly upset by the situation and requested to leave. However, whilst in the house, Brigitte and Jackie mended their relationship.

When in the house, Brigitte had an argument with John which started when he said that she was "ugly" because of her short hair. In 2008, she stated that her opinion on him had not changed and branded him "foul" and "disgusting".[2]

On Day 18, Brigitte left the house in third place, behind Kenzie and Bez.

In July 2008, she appeared on Big Brother's Little Brother, discussing the current housemates. In her interview with presenter George Lamb, she stated that she and Jackie are still on good terms and still contact each other from time to time.

Her chosen charity was Task Brasil Trust

Caprice Bourret

Caprice Bourret (born 1971) is an American model, who entered the house on Day 1. When in the house she became friendly with Lisa and Brigitte.

On Day 9, she was given a secret mission by Big Brother. This resulted in here finding a secret room with a television and a VT of her fellow housemates speaking about her in the Diary Room. This included a clip of John comparing her to a "cash machine" and implying that everything she did in the house was for money and to promote her lingerie collection. She later confronted him about this which resulted in them having an argument.

Caprice was evicted on Day 16 with only 5% of the vote to win.

She was originally approached to take part in Celebrity Big Brother 2,[3] but had to pull out at the last minute.[4]

The charity which she was supporting was ChildLine.

Germaine Greer

Germaine Greer (born January 1939) is an Australian journalist and feminist. She entered the house on Day 1. Prior to entering the house, she had criticised the show claiming it was "as civilised as looking through the keyhole in your teenager's bedroom door". While in the house she tried (in vain) to stage a protest against Big Brother.

On Day 6, Germaine voluntarily left the house stated bullying by the shows producers on Brigitte and the behaviour of her fellow housemates towards John as reasons.

Jackie Stallone

Jackie Stallone (born November 1921) is an American astrologer and mother to film actor Sylvester Stallone. She entered the house on Day 5, as part of the Mediaeval Task, in which she was referred to as "the Queen Mother". She is remembered for her first words upon entering the house, "Yeah, Jackie". She is also former mother-in-law to fellow housemate Brigitte.

Her entering upset Brigitte greatly and resulted in Brigitte requesting to leave. However, whilst in the house they resolved their issues with each other. She was the cause of much conflict between her fellow housemates particularly with Lisa who likened her to The Bride Of Frankenstein and told her she hoped that she choked on her eggs. She also had many confrontations with John who branded her "lazy".

Her lack of day-to-day knowledge was much to the entertainment of her fellow housemates such as her not being able to open a bottle of wine or make tea. Jackie said that this was down to the fact that she had employees to do these things for her in the outside.

After only just four days in the house, she was evicted on Day 9, losing out to John, with 33% of the vote to save. She is the oldest housemate to ever enter the house in the UK.

Note 1: Jackie, as a new housemate, was originally allowed to nominate, but not allowed to be nominated. However, due to Germaine's departure, Jackie became eligible to both nominate and be nominated.

Note 2: Unlike previous celebrity and civilian editions where viewers voted to evict, all eviction votes this series were votes to save. Therefore, the housemate with the fewest votes was evicted.

Note 3: Housemates nominated for the third time - in fake nominations. Whilst the housemates nominated, the public were voting for who they wanted to win. Lisa was evicted the next day, and two days after, there was a double eviction, evicting Caprice and Jeremy. Without the twist, Bez and Brigitte would have faced the public vote.
