BB is the show that introduced the world to reality TV and changed our lives forever. We're not even exaggerating (for once).
We're over the ruddy moon that the show is being rebooted on ITV2 later after a five years hiatus and the new series - hosted by AJ Odudu and Will Best - begins on Sunday 8 October. While we wait for bosses to announce the new housemates, let's take a trip to memory lane to revisit all 19 Big Brother UK winners - from Josie Gibson and Pete Bennett to, err, Cameron Stout - and find out what they've been up to since appearing on the show.
Big Brother UK winners
Craig Phillips - Big Brother 1 winner
Craig Phillips, a builder from Liverpool, made history back in 2000 when he won the first ever series of Big Brother and took home a cash prize of £70,000. Craig instantly became a national hero when he called out Nick Bateman - aka Nasty Nick - for trying to influence the nominations and only endeared the public even more when he revealed he was donating the prize money to his friend for a heart and lung transplant.

After rising to fame, Craig went on to present a number of DIY programmes for BBC and ITV including Renovation Street and 60 Minute Makeover. He's also appeared on the likes of Bo' Selecta! and Back to Reality and even released a charity Christmas single.

Anthony Hutton - Big Brother 6 winner
Geordie lad Anthony Hutton, who worked as a 70s dancer and trainee barber, won Big Brother 6 in 2005. He was only 23 at the time. His time in the house is probably best remembered for a steamy hot tub party with Makosi Musambasi, which left her thinking she was pregnant.

These days, Anthony still works as a barber and runs a barber's shop/cocktail bar called Mr Huttons. He's also a proud dad to a son called Cruz and is married to his wife Sophie.
Pete Bennett - Big Brother 7 winner
We have to admit Big Brother 7 is one of our fave series of the reality show, partially because it introduced us to iconic winner Pete Bennett. Pete, who has Tourette's Syndrome, won the show with over 61 per cent of the vote and was catapulted into the spotlight alongside then-girlfriend Nikki Grahame.
Pete Bennett now
Pete released an autobiography, became the lead singer of a band and even performed at Glastonbury. He launched a cleaning company called Celebriclean in 2016, before a huge career change. Pete became an actor and even filmed a scene for Catherine Tate's Nan: The Movie. Sadly, his cameo was left on the cutting room floor.
Brian Belo - Big Brother 8 winner
Cheeky Essex chappy Brian Belo was crowned the winner of Big Brother 8. At the time, he was famed for claiming not to know who William Shakespeare was (oh, Brian).
Brian Belo now
After winning the show, Brian went on to appear on a bucketload of TV shows including Hollyoaks, Dead Set and Coach Trip.
In 2013, Brian reached a settlement with the bosses of TOWIE after claiming that he had originally developed the idea.

She immediately re-entered the house for Ultimate Big Brother, alongside show legends like Chantelle Houghton, Michelle Bass and Coolio, but quit on day three.

Sam Evans - Big Brother 14 winner
Big Brother 14 winner Sam Evans, who was born with hearing difficulties, vowed to donate 25 per cent of his £100,000 prize money to charity upon winning the show. He worked in Debenhams before the show and it was reported at the time that he was hoping to return to his pre-fame job.

Helen Wood now
Helen returned to Big Brother a year later for the 'Time Warp' twist, where she clashed with the likes of Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace, Brian Belo and Nikki Grahame. She's mostly stayed out of the limelight since then, deactivating her Instagram and making her Twitter account private.
