As we get close and closer to the summer, it's time to start counting down the days until a brand new series of Big Brother kicks off. Yes we KNOW it's a bit crap and we KNOW we probably shouldn't watch it, but it's always pure golden telly and seriously addictive, crazy and entertaining.

This'll be the 17th season of BB (not even including the celebrity versions) in its 16 year legacy, so that's a whole lotta housemates that we've loved, liked and loathed over the years.

But what are they all up to these days, eh? Are they still even the tiniest bit famous? Do they still look the same as they did in the 00s? Let's find out - about the ones we actually care about, anyway.

SERIES 1 - Craig

After becoming the first winner of Big Brother ever, Craig developed a construction training academy in the North West back in 2006, and now works as a property developer occasionally popping up on telly as a DIY show presenter too.

Nasty Nick 

Nick proved that he wasn't actually so nasty after all when he returned for Ultimate Big Brother. He's written a book called How To Be A Complete Bastard, and now works as a travel journalist for Good Holiday Guide and the Reading Evening Post. By the looks of his Twitter, he's currently living over in Syndey and it looks very nice actually. 

SERIES 2 - Brian

Seeing as he was such a hun, Brian landed loads of  TV and radio work after the house, as well as launching the first two series of Big Brother when it moved to Channel 5. He now does most of his TV work in Ireland, currently fronting a show called Sitting on A Fortune which "sees players earn money for doing absolutely nothing." Cool.

Helen

Seeing as she loves blinking, she does, we're guessing Helen's probably still doing quite a lot of blinking in her spare time. But as well as that, her Twitter bio reveals that she's a mum, sparkly, wife, bubbly, hairdresser, pink, and glitz and glam. What a combo. She also retweets Rylan Clark a lot, so we're guessing she's a regular on Bit On The Side.

SERIES 3 - Alex

Most Popular

After buttoning up his shirt and singing 'That's The Way (I Like It)' behind the bedroom door, Alex now says that he's 'wiser, fatter and worth 87.5% less for a booking than in 2002'. Same. It looks as though he might be involved in a new show with Rylan though, and he had a massive Twitter row with Gemma Collins recently. Living the dream.

Alison

Probably one of the biggets Big Brother success stories ever, Alison went from BB housemate to daytime television star on This Morning. She's so popular with viewers that she's now the new agony aunt on the show, and she's also appeared on I'm A Celeb, Strictly Come Dancing and in endless pantos. Nailed it.

Kate

Once out of the house, Kate had a brief stint getting her kit off for lads' mags and then became a pretty big radio presenter, working on various Kerrang! Radio shows before moving to Manchester where she's really quite brill at presenting the midday show on Key 103.

SERIES 4 - John 

Seeing as he was a major brainbox, John co-presents Brainiac now on Sky One, via which he became pretty famous for walking on a pool full of custard powder and water. He's also come up with some pretty nifty ideas, one of his most famous being the "time-delay toaster." GENIUS.

SERIES 5 - Emma

Emma is one of the most memorable housemates ever thanks to that HUGE fight that exploded in series 5, but these days she's pretty much slipped off the fame radar altogether. She was last spotted in 2011 working as a waitress in London, and apparently she might have returned to work in the army too. Hope you're well, Ems.

Jason

Most Popular

Jason hasn't had the best time since leaving the Big Brother house as he was cleared of sexually assaulting a woman in 2011. Apart from that, it looks as though he works as a personal trainer, and did a bit of travelling with his BB winnings back in the day. Lovely.

Kitten

Kitten was NOT easy to track down on the internet, but we found a blog profile describing her as "an activist, organiser and survivor. Kat has initiated several feminist organisations, events and campaigns around the world on a diversity of feminist issues and is passionate, above all else, about abolishing the harmful practice of prostitution." Not much, then.

Marco

Leader of the Lipgloss Bitches, Marco has decided that the internet is not for him because he is literally nowhere to be found. It's thought that he studied Law at Kingston Uni, and people reckon that's him (now with hair) in the above dating app photo - although he must be disguising himself by insisting that he's 'Not Marco from Big Brother' in the bio. Except it clearly is him, so that's a bit odd.

Michelle

Unforch, Michelle and Chicken Stu's love story in the BB house didn't go the distance and they split up in 2013, which is truly life ruining. She's now married to the hypnotist who helped her lose weight, and settled down in Hertfordshire with their children. No idea what happened to Stuart, he and his bandanas have sadly disappeared.

Nadia

Nadia went on to record a single called A Little Bit of Action and returned for Ultimate Big Brother in 2010. Not too sure what she's up to these days really, but sadly it's not a pop career.

Victor

Most Popular

Victor's official job title is somewhat of a mystery, but it looks as though he still occasionally pops up on TV and seems to be involved in some kind of football work, according to his Twitter. He also recently tweeted about how long it's been since he 'chinned someone', so it's good to know that he's keeping the peace.

SERIES 6 - Anthony

Anthony decided to step out of the limelight in 2012 and has opened a bar/barbers quite recently called The Huttons, which is pretty cool. James from Geordie Shore had his hair cut there not too long ago, so he must be quite good.

Kamal

Since Big Brother, Kemal has probably had the biggest transformation of any housemate EVER, going on to have gender reassignment surgery and go by her new name of Zulekya. Well there you go.

Makhosi

No she didn't have Anthony's baby but instead, Makhosi was deported to Nigeria in 2012 for trying to get into the UK with a relative's passport. Awkward. She now has a current affairs show in Nigeria called Makhosi Today. All's well that ends well.

SERIES 7 - Aisleyne

Aisleyne is still quite famous these days, although we're not really sure what for. She's done glamour modelling, launched a celebrity boot camp and was briefly engaged to boxer, Mike Tyson, but she mostly pops up in showbiz magazines for arguing with people.

Glyn

Most Popular

Having successfully boiled an egg for the very first time ahummm ahummm while in the house, Glyn reached for the stars and became a teacher, before finding a career in politics. He's now on a mission to become Plaid Cymru's National Assembly candidate in Cardiff Central. GO GLYN GO.

Grace

Grace got married to her in-house bae Mikey in 2009 and the pair are still together (HOORAH). They've just had their second child, and are currently looking for a bigger house according to her latest interview. He runs an advertising company, and she set up a college to help kids with their GCSEs and A-Levels. Erm, power couple alert.

Imogen

Imogen now regularly appears on Welsh-speaking channel S4C and is forever in the tabloids for something that's always related to bikinis, curves or yo-yo dieting. She's also got children, however she's probably best known for dating various footballers - including that whole Ryan Gigg debacle with Imogen being the subject of his super-injunction. Awks.

Nikki

WHO IS SHE. Well, Nikki has written two books about her life-long battle with anorexia since leaving the house. She sadly relapsed in 2012 and spent time in hospital after overdosing on diet pills. But she's now happy and healthy again, and just last month it was announced that she'd be entering the Canadian Big Brother house. The gal just LOVES BB.

Pete

Things went a bit pear-shaped for Pete, as he ended up on Jeremy Kyle after getting hooked on horse tranquiliser ketamine to cope with the loss of seven friends, and ending up skint without anywhere to live. These days he's into acting though, and his next mission is to crack Hollywood. GOOD LUCK PAL.

SERIES 8 - Samanda

Most Popular

After their time in the house Samanda released singles, their own perfume and a fitness DVD in an attempt to make the world a pinker place. They were most recently found by fans judging teen beauty pageants, but we really wish they were still popstars. Please.

Chanelle

After leaving the BB8 house, Chanelle attempted to start a musical career, but these dreams were put on hold when Radio 1 refused to play her single and her request to perform at V Festival was turned down. She now runs a cake shop in Wakefield, and is back in showbiz news this week going on about 'embracing her curves'. Alright love.

Ziggy

Although unconfirmed, the internet now seems to think that Ziggy manages Scream Queens star Lucien Laviscount. That's about all we've got to tell ya unfortunately, although we can confirm that he 's definitely still really fit and we've got our fingers crossed for a Northern Line reunion happening any day now.

SERIES 9 - Mario and Lisa

It pains us to tell you that Mario and Lisa are no longer together. Lisa and Mario ended their eight-and-a-half-year relationship after it was "destroyed" by Silva Carmichael, who conned the couple into filming a fake reality show. Meanwhile, Lisa recently told Reveal that she lives in a 'rat infested hell' on a council estate and reckons Big Brother ruined her life, which is a bit sad.

Luke

After his time on the show Luke worked in local radio in his home town of Bolton, and currently hosts a Sunday night show on 97.4 Rock FM. He also popped up on an episode of Judge Rinder the other day, which is pretty hilarious. Ooh, and he won his case for anyone who was wondering about justice.

Rex

Most Popular

Fit ginger Rex is very much still fit and ginger, while his Twitter bio describes him as the 'king of selfies' and a chef that whips up seriously delish looking food (we've been perving). This week he was one of the judges for the final of Miss Wales, and he's got a very cute dog called Teddy.

Dale

Speaking of fitties, hot Dale went on to become a DJ doing gigs all over the country. There's not much info on his Twitter, but recently he was "really pushing the boundaries on how much bread a human can reluctantly consume in 72 hours". Whadda guy.

SERIES 10 - Sophie

In 2012, glamour model Sophie revealed she'd 'turned to drugs' after being dumped by footballer, Mario Balotelli, which we'd argue is a good thing but there you go. She's a mum to a well cute little boy called Walter, and seems to have discovered the magic of facial fillers because she looks like a different human now.

SERIES 11 - John James

John James turned his back on showbiz after splitting from Josie once back in the real world, but recently recorded her a surprise video message for her appearance on Loose Women. He wished her "all the success in the upcoming future", and seems to have been lifting a fair few weights because he is now ENORMOUS.

Josie

These days, Josie is best known for her weight loss and total image reinvention as a health and fitness queen. She's a personal trainer who's released fitness DVDs and books, and is considered to be one of the UK's most successful reality stars forever popping up on daytime TV. Nice one, Jose.
