BBUK 2023 housemate, Kerry, entrance in an electric wheelchair is the talking of the town.
Here’s everything you need to know about Big Brother housemate Kerry
What made you apply to be a Big Brother housemate?
I love the programme. It is, for me, the ultimate reality TV show ever. I’ve got multiple sclerosis and so the reason why I never applied before is because I always saw those whacking great big stairs to get into the house. It just felt a little bit unachievable because for the first three years of my illness I was in a wheelchair. When I saw it was coming back and searching for real people from all walks of life, I thought, this is my year.
Who would be your dream celebrity to live with?
Probably Adele. I really, really like Piers Morgan too.
How long will this year’s housemates be in the Big Brother house?
Although previous Big Brother series have lasted for around three months, the new reboot will be slightly shorter.
The 2023 edition will run for six weeks, as every argument, snack time and chat will be filmed by surveillance cameras.
The programme aired for 18 years across Channel 4 and Channel 5 before being axed in 2018.
Big Brother is finally back on our screens and… it just feels right, doesn’t it?
Sunday night’s launch show saw AJ Odudu and Will Best introducing us to the show’s 16 brand new contestants, and while their living quarters might be among the most impressive in Big Brother history, it quickly became apparent that didn’t mean the newcomers were going to have an easy time of it.
The first night saw one housemate being stripped of hot water and his suitcase, and another being forced to sleep on the floor, while poor Olivia became the first contestant to be put up for the chop (even if Big Brother did change his mind about this mere moments later).
