ITV Big Brother fans stunned as housemates past reality TV stint is unearthed

Big Brother viewers have been left ‘outraged’ after it emerged that another housemate has starred on TV before.

Eagle-eyed fans noticed that Tom previously appeared on a different ITV reality show – Kavos Weekender. The 21 year old butcher, from Somerset, described himself as ‘loud and chatty’ before entering the Big Brother house this year.

“I like to think I’m quite funny,” he said – before adding he had signed up to the show for a “bit of fun”. But some viewers have actually labelled him “dull”.

One wrote on X/Twitter: “Colour me shocked – the most dull housemate this year once featured on the most dull reality TV show, Kavos Weekender. And apparently the only thing he went on about was his mullet. Maybe casting could do a little bit better next year."

Other viewers were quick to express their disappointment that Tom had previously appeared on TV – as Big Brother bosses appeared to be looking for ‘normal people’ to star in this year’s series. The revelation comes after it emerged that another of this year’s housemates, Farida, had previously been a contestant on Channel 4 reality show Come Dine With Me.

One wrote: "I remember when #BBUK went on a promotional campaign saying that they would get housemates that were 'normal' and haven’t been on TV before. But all we’ve discovered is that most of them have been on tv before."

Reacting to the revelation about Tom, another wrote: "I’m sorry, but that is absolutely outrageous!" A third wrote: "Seems to me like majority of the housemates has been on TV before.

“I’ll never understand when genuine people apply and audition through the normal means, why do casting teams reach out to 'influencers' 'models' or people who have been on TV before, it’s so odd…I auditioned years ago and didn’t get past the first round and I’d have been a hoot."

A fourth added: "Thats p***** me off. What happened to being every day people. Every day people haven't already been a cast member of a reality TV series."

Kavos Weekender aired on ITV in 2023 as part of the wider Ibiza Weekender and Magaluf Weekender series. The shows focussed on sets of friends who go on a fun filled holiday over the summer season.

Meanwhile, viewers of Big Brother were left shocked and saddened after on Tuesday after housemate Kerry became the fourth housemate to to be evicted from the 2023 series of the show in a surprise eviction.

Kerry was nominated by two of her fellow housemates in a shock Halloween twist. Noky and Trish were tasked with choosing three killer nominations, and chose Dylan, Kerry and Olivia.

Ahead of the Halloween twist, Monday night saw a flash vote where the results would be revealed on Tuesday (31 October). Housemates and viewers were then left stunned as Kerry discovered she would be leaving the house immediately via the backdoor.

Kerry was forced to leave the show via a decorative coffin at the back of the room, without getting to say a final goodbye to the rest of her housemates.

Fans took to X to express their thoughts as one said: "i’m acc fuming kerry has been evicted GET DYLAN OUT." Another added: "I’m gutted Kerry doesn’t have a live walkout".
