It's hard to believe the queen of daytime telly (sorry, Holly) Alison Hammond found fame over two decades ago on Big Brother 3 back in 2002. But, face it, the majority of Big Brother housemates ride those fame waves for about a month after being evicted – or removed – from the house and then disappear into the showbiz abyss never to be heard from again.
Remember these celebs were celebing long before the time of Instagram, TikTok and OnlyFans (just saying).
The Brummie babe is arguably one – if not the – biggest name to come out of Big Brother UK. She has gone on to become of the UK's biggest presenters, one of the faces of This Morning and has even co-hosted The BAFTAs.
But before she was brushing shoulders with the biggest names in showbiz, she was sharing a grotty bedroom with the likes of Kate Lawler, Adele Roberts and the late Jade Goody, with millions of Brits watching them as they slept live on E4 night after night. It was a different time.
Although she was only in the Big Brother house for 15 days before being evicted, Alison was one of the biggest characters of Big Brother 3 gaining a legion of fans for her endless antics inside the world's most famous house (soz, Buckingham and White).
Remember when she instigated the sex position challenge – in our eyes, essentially laying the foundations for the iconic Love Island staple? How about the time she robbed a few live chickens of their eggs? No?
Okay, well surely you remember the time she fell through a garden table trying to spot security guards patrolling the Big Brother house?
