Big Brother stars who look unrecognisable now – from teenage rapper’s hunky glow-up to winner’s ‘pregnant lips’ | The Sun

AFTER being on camera 24 hours a day, Big Brother stars might have found it hard to sink back into anonymity.

But some memorable housemates are now so unrecognisable, even the most eagle-eyed fans would struggle to pick them out.

This week 2017 winner Isabelle Warburton, 27, stunned fans when she revealed her voluminous lips after having cosmetic work.

One troll commented her lips “looked pregnant”, but the good-humoured 2017 winner took it on the chin – joking they were “expecting twins.”

The mum-of-two, who runs a beauty salon in Warrington, is not the only former housemate who looks completely different to their Big Brother days.

As the show is set to return to our screens this year, we reveal the stars who have transformed since their TV heyday.

James 'Kenzie' MacKenzie

At 19, Kenzie was the show’s youngest ever contestant when he entered Celebrity Big Brother in 2005.

The Blazin’ Squad rapper was most memorable for giving model Caprice a massage and throwing a strop when he was forced to wear a Humpty Dumpty suit in a dressing up game.

Since leaving the house as a slim teenager, the fan favourite – who came second to Happy Mondays star Bez – has clearly been hitting the gym.

Now carving out a career as an international DJ, the 37-year-old recently showed off his sculpted body and impressive six-pack in an Instagram picture.

Another young contestant, Glyn was just 18 when he entered the house in 2006.

The former lifeguard came second in the show, and went on to travel the world, teaching in South East Asia for four years before finding God.

Earlier this year he revealed he was in training to become a minister in Wales.

The clean-shaven youth of his BB days is gone, with balding Glyn joking on This Morning that his hair went from from his head to his face "and on my back for some reason. I don't want it there".

Anthony Hutton

Anthony Hutton was a baby-faced 23-year-old when he appeared on the show in 2005 and emerged the winner.

The triumph came after he shared a steamy romp with Makosi Musambasi in the hot-tub.

Now 41, Anthony turned his back on the spotlight and runs his own barber shop in Durham.

In a recent appearance on This Morning, he looked a world away from the callow youth of his TV days, sporting an impressive mop of hair and a thick, manicured beard.

Charley Uchea

Charley became a household name after her fiery clashes in the Big Brother house in 2007.

Her bust-ups with Chanelle Hayes and great one liners fixed her in the memory of BB fans everywhere.

After leaving the house she made various appearances on TV shows including 8 Out of 10 Cats, Friday Night Project and The Weakest Link.

Now 38, the former lap-dancer posts regular pictures of herself on her Instagram, showing off her incredible figure in bikinis and slinky dresses, and has 208k followers.

Bex Shiner

Rebecca ‘Bex’ Shiner was working as a nurse when she entered the house in 2008, where she stayed for 51 days.

She had a romance with housemate Luke Marsden, but they split shortly after leaving the show.

Bex, now 36, ditched nursing in favour of making money through sexy images online, originally appearing on Babestation before cashing in on OnlyFans, claiming she makes £12k a month.

She also aims to be a spokesperson for sex workers, telling the Daily Star: "I want equal rights for sex workers and to tell people that we are human and we can go and do other things and make something of ourselves even if it is outside the industry."

Jason Cowan

Jason Cowan shocked the nation when he entered the Big Brother house wearing just a bow tie and tiny leopard print Speedos 17 years ago in 2004.

The former air steward from Hamilton, South Lanarkshire was runner-up of the fifth series, losing out to Nadia Almada.

After travelling he became a personal trainer in his native Scotland and, in 2011, he was cleared of a charge of sexual assault.

The 49-year-old has lost his trademark blonde locks and animal print – although he still has the muscles.

Nadia Almada

Nadia was the first transgender person to appear on Big Brother in 2004, and emerged the winner with £63,500 prize money.

She kept her transgender identity a secret from fellow contestants, although viewers were informed.
