It didn’t start off well when a huge eye, used to promote the upcoming fourth series, was painted on top of White Horse Hill Oxfordshire, only to be removed the next day due to local complaints. Nevertheless, the series returned with a bang and gave us more memorable and wacky moments.
By this point, Big Brother was on its way to being part of the TV furniture, so to speak, and as such audiences across the land were waiting with baited breath to get their fix of reality TV drama and madness.
Big Brother 4 might not have been as lively as its three previous series, but it still offered up some memorable housemates, so let’s take a look at what they’re doing now.
Cameron, who was 32 at the time, was a fishmonger from Orkney. He was known for swapping with a house mate from the African Big Brother house. He ended up winning Big Brother 4 with 57% of the vote needed to win. After leaving the house he worked fairly extensively for the BBC, doing things such as being a spokesperson, co-presenting for BBC Scotland and having a slot on BBC Radio. He also writes regular columns for Scottish newspapers such as The Sunday Post and the Aberdeen Evening Express. He has starred in pantomimes as Prince Charming and Peter Pan and been involved in charity events. He is now a primary school teacher.
Joanne “Sissy” Rooney
Joanne was a 26 year old retail worker from Liverpool. She was known in the house for, well, being quite quiet. Unsurprisingly, she did not last long and was evicted in week three with 45% of the vote. After leaving the house she continued her work in fashion but as a fashion designer. In 2004, she did Trek Mexico raising money for Children in Crisis. She founded the Streetstyle Surgery, which runs workshops for youths in fashion design, film-making and other creative things. She has won awards and commendations for her work with the Streetstyle Surgery.
