Big Brother 2017 housemates: Full line-up revealed including THREE Ex On The Beach stars, a stripper and a married couple
This year’s Big Brother is finally here, and we can now reveal the full line-up of the contestants entering the house.
Among the housemates are a few faces that will be very familiar to Ex On The Beach fans, along with one of the hot male stripping squad The Dreamboys.
In a normal Big Brother first, this year will see a married couple enter the house, along with two fun-loving sisters who may end up vying with each other for airtime.
Without further ado, let’s meet the new housemates.
Kayleigh Morris, 28
This Welsh lass will be familiar to anyone who watched her appear on two separate series of Ex On The Beach, where she hooked up with Stephen Bear , dubbed Jemma Lucy a “used condom”, had a fling with Ashley Cain and kicked off at Charlotte Crosby.
She claimed to have reined in her infamous temper and says she wants to prove to the public that she’s not a bimbo.
Ahead of her stint in the house, Kayleigh said: “You will be put in an environment where you will either sink or swim with lots of different personalities.”
She’s currently in a relationship… although we all know how long outside relationships last inside the BB house.
Big Brother 2017
Lotan Carter, 28
Lotan is a member of stripping squad The Dreamboys and once had a fling with Apprentice star Luisa Zissman, who herself has completed a stint on the celebrity version of Big Brother .
Lotan is also the nephew of celeb choreographer Louie Spence and once joined his uncle on an episode of Pineapple Dance Studios.
He fully admits to enjoying lots of female attention, but while his social media accounts say he’s engaged, he’s actually told Big Brother bosses that he’s single. Awkward.
A previous ex, Tanya Billey, once confessed to ‘breaking’ his penis during sex, explaining that the frisky pair were going at it one day when they heard a “sickening crunch” and looked down to see a huge bruise forming on Lotan’s willy.
Chanelle McCleary, 24
Chanelle is a model who appeared on Ex On The Beach in January.
But her fame was short-lived as she was booted out of the villa after fighting with Geordie Shore star Zahida Allen on the show.
The brunette beauty has since spent a whopping £15,000 on cosmetic surgery.
She now calls herself an ‘It’ girl and admits that she’s still a fiery character.
Once someone annoys her she can’t help but blow her lid, she says: “I’m like a whirlwind of emotions”.
She added: “I want to let down my weave and cause some mayhem!”
Arthur Fulford, 24
Arthur is hoping to bring a touch of class to proceedings as he’s the son of an aristocrat and heir to his family’s 3,000 acre Great Fulford Estate.
But he’s not just posh totty, the courier from Devon also has his own reality TV credentials.
He and his family have featured in two shows on BBC Three – ‘The F**king Fulfords’ and ‘Life Is Toff’.
He believes that the only way that you can truly learn in life is by making mistakes.
Arthur describes himself as a ‘secret bookworm’ and loves learning about ancient classical civilisations
So why did he sign up for Big Brother ?
“An opportunity to have a really good time and an exciting experience!” he said.
Ellie Young, 23
Ellie is a self-confessed party girl who did a stint on ITV2 reality TV show Ibiza Weekender.
She’s also done an impressive four seasons as a holiday rep but now works as a Till Operator at a trampoline park.
Single Ellie admits she is a hopeless romantic looking for her Mr Right in the house – but she always gets her heart broken.
She says her best personality trait is her sense of humour and the fact she doesn’t mind “making a fool out of myself and laughing about it”.
Mandy Longworth, 51, and Charlotte Keys, 24
This mother and daughter team from Doncaster look set to be a force to be reckoned with.
The 51-year-old antiques dealer is divorced but claims to have a better sex life than her daughter.
She wants to find love in the house “someone of a similar age, a bit of money and a man that hasn’t dated a lot of young women”.
She added: “When you get to my age, life feels dull, I am still 21 in my head and I need stimulation. I need something stronger than coffee – Big Brother is that.”
Meanwhile, Charlotte is an estate agent who’s currently in a relationship but claims to have had the same boy hit on her and her mum.
She has dumped all her previous boyfriends and her friends describe her as the ‘Ice Queen’ because she never cries and she is usually cold to people when she first meets them.
Charlotte has a lot of strong opinions and says “she will be the most argumentative housemate in there”.
Raphael Korine, 22
Raphael is a psychology student at Exeter University and speaks five different languages.
He enjoys playing pranks on people and admits he talks about people behind their backs and doesn’t feel guilty for anything.
When it comes to commitment in relationships, he confesses to having cheated on every partner he’s ever had.
He’s hoping to be able to “pull the strings” in the house and create the drama rather than be involved directly.
Rebecca Jane, 32, and Kieran Lee, 25
This oddball pair work at a honey-trapping detective agency.
Rebecca owns the business and investigates cheating partners by using attractive people as bait, known as honey-trapping.
One of her honey-trappers is Kieran – who has appeared on Ex On The Beach.
Alpha-male Kieran says he can’t be controlled and is super competitive.
Kieran can be stubborn and has a short fuse this has got him into trouble in the past. He can be blunt at times and always to cut straight to the point.
Kieran thinks his fellow female housemates will be “fighting over him”.
Joe Quaranta, 55
Joe is a nightclub owner from South London.
His girlfriend is 26 years his junior and he enjoys living a glamorous lifestyle and travels all over the world enjoying the finer things in life.
Joe is from Italian heritage and grew up with a big family in South London.
“I want to do Big Brother to show that the oldies can do well too – bring it on!” he said.
Imran Javeed, 39, and Sukhvinder Javeed, 38
Unusually for Big Brother, a husband and wife are teaming up together to take on the other housemates.
Entrepreneur Imran from Leeds was raised in a strict Muslim family and wants to show the public what a modern Muslim looks like.
He and his wife Sukhvinder, also an entrepreneur, met at the age of eight and grew up together, although their relationship was frowned upon because her family are Sikh. They went on to marry and have children together.
Before going into the house, Sukhvinder said: “I want to meet the world and I want the world to meet me too! Life is an amazing gift and if you aren’t on TV then who are you?”
Her husband Imran added: “I want to show my children how to be a good person. I want to be an example to the next generation as well and let them know it’s not all about social media.”
Hannah Agboola, 23, and Deborah Agboola, 25
These two ambitious sisters will be bringing plenty of attitude into the house, with reigning Miss Nigeria UK Hannah describing her best assets as “confidence and bravery”.
The beauty queen also works as a makeup store assistant in London and is single. She sees her role in the house as inspiring young people watching to steer clear of crime and gangs, and said she’s ready for the challenge of Big Brother.
“I want to do Big Brother because I want to do something I have never done before, it’s a unique experience. I want to be challenged as a person. I want to do something outside of the box.”
Older sister Deborah has strong family values and refuses to take disrespect, which could make her one of the most fiery housemates. She describes herself as strong-willed and not afraid to speak her mind.
The digital analyst is also single and told Big Brother producers: “I want to show the world single mums can be ambitious, successful and don’t have to shy away and be locked up in our houses.”
