Big Brother 4 in 2003 was the fourth series of Big Brother in the UK, a reality show shown on Channel 4 in which a number of contestants live in an isolated house trying to avoid being evicted by the public with the aim of winning a large cash prize at the end of the run. The series ran from Friday 23 May to Friday 25 July 2003. The fourth series saw several surprises. Four housemates were nominated on the opening night after the housemates were told to make instant nominations based on first impressions, with every housemate receiving even one nomination facing the public vote; of the four, Anouska was evicted one week later. One housemate, Cameron Stout, accepted a challenge from Big Brother and discovered it meant spending a week in the Big Brother Africa house (one of the African housemates, Gaetano, spent some time in the UK house in return).[1] There was a surprise double eviction, new housemate, and return by evicted housemate Jon Tickle for the last two weeks (he was not eligible to win, though he opted not to tell his housemates this). The £70,000 prize was eventually won by Cameron. Several housemates later had presenting or acting jobs.

After Big Brother, Cameron Stout, Jon Tickle and Ray Shah went on to have successful careers in the media industry. Cameron Stout is an occasional columnist with The Sunday Post newspaper and has appeared in panto in Aberdeen. Jon Tickle co-presented Brainiac: Science Abuse on UK television's Sky One. Ray Shah now works in the radio, television and entertainment industry in Ireland. He presents radio shows on Dublin's Q102 and TV shows on City Channel. Ray also works as a club DJ playing at venues around Ireland.

The reaction to this series was poor, the press and viewers finding the housemates boring. Despite this, the series did hold strong viewing figures, averaging 4.6 million viewers. None of the housemates in this series participated as a housemate in Ultimate Big Brother, however, Lisa Jeynes and Jon Tickle returned to the Big Brother House briefly in Ultimate Big Brother to take part in a shopping task. The series was not exactly remember in a good light during the Big Brother franchises' final series in 2010, on the penultimate day of Ultimate Big Brother, the shows' narrator Marcus Bentley entered the house to host a funeral service for the end of Big Brother and after talking about Big Brother over the years said "...but it was never boring... well, except for Big Brother 4".

Housemates

Anouska

Anouska Golebiewski (born 8 November 1982) was a nursery assistant from Greater Manchester. She became the victim of the shock nominations on Day 1, being nominated by 6 housemates. This resulted in her becoming the first evictee of the series on Day 8. She then went on appear in the Big Brother house in Australia which she stayed for 10 days. In December 2004, she was one of the ex-housemates who appeared on Big Brother Panto.[1] She later returned to University where she studied Psychology.[2] She now works as a counsellor.

Cameron

Cameron Stout (born 8 March 1971 in Stromness, Orkney) was the winner of Big Brother 2003. Before the contest, Stout had worked as a fish trader for an American company in Orkney in Scotland. Stout was known for his strong fundamentalist evangelical Christian beliefs and was proud in admitting his virginity. For this, and his belief that sex should only take place within marriage, he was mocked by the British tabloid press as a 'bible basher'.[1] Whilst sewing a shamrock — a symbol of Ireland — Stout was heard whistling The Sash.[3][4] During the series he accepted a challenge from Big Brother and discovered it meant spending a week in the Big Brother Africa house (One of the African housemates, Gaetano, spent some time in the UK house in return).[1] Cameron now works for the National Trust.

Federico

Federico Martone (born 2 April 1980) was an Italian/Scottish waiter from Glasgow, best known for causing a stir when he described Newcastle women as slags. Before auditioning for Big Brother Martone went to Bannerman High School in Glasgow. In week four Martone was nominated for eviction along with Cameron and Jon. He was evicted on Day 29 receiving the most votes to be evicted from the public, because it was a double eviction Jon was also evicted that night. Martone has made many television appearances since leaving the house, including appearing in a cameo on Bo Selecta.

On 14 July 2009 Martone made a brief return to the house during the tenth series as part of Big Brother's anniversary celebrations, where a housemate from each series would come back and take part in a task from their series with a housemate from the current series, he recreated the gymkhana task with Noirin Kelly. He generated minor controversy when he informed her of the death of Michael Jackson, as it is forbidden to provide houseguests with information on the outside world. This did not affect the task result, however.[5]

Martone continues to work in the restaurant Qua, which is owned by his father.[6]

Gaetano

Gaetano Kagwa (born 1971) from Uganda was the housemate from the Big Brother house in Africa which he swapped place with Cameron for four days. As a guest on UK version of the show, Gaetano not eligible to win, although he later finished fifth in the African version. During his time in the house, he famously described Tania as piggy due to her constant eating habits.[7]

Gaetano now presents the tavel programme Studio 53 on MNet.[8]

Gos

Herjender "Gos" Gosal (born 28 July 1971) is a chef from London. He got evicted on Day 44 beaten by Ray and Nush, the day after the bomb scare in front of no crowd. At the final, Davina asked the crowd to compensate this by giving him an extra loud cheer, which they did. In a poll aired on E4 on 13 May 2006, Gos was voted the least popular housemate of all time.[9]

In 2008, Gos left his job as a chef in an attempt to break into broadcasting.[10]

Jon

Jonathan "Jon" Tickle (born 8 May 1974, in Staines) previously appeared as a contestant on the game show Blockbusters in 1991. He was evicted along with Federico on Day 29 but returned to the house on Day 50 when viewers voted him back into the house where he stayed until the full 64 days. Voted 13th most popular housemate of all time, Tickle has more fan websites than any other housemate. He is also, famously, the object of devotion of the Brethren of the Church of Jon - a still thriving organisation set up in his honour on the Channel 4 Big Brother forums during Big Brother 4. He was also a contestant on a celebrity edition of Distraction winning roughly £3,200 for cancer research.

Tickle, a physics graduate of the University of Leicester, has gone on to co-present Brainiac: Science Abuse, a series of science-based shows on the UK television station Sky One, in which he is the 'sciencey one' and the most daring of all Brainiacs, in contrast to Richard Hammond who was a more entertainment focused presenter.

Justine

Justine Sellman (born 17 November 1975) was a sales assistant from Leeds, and the first ever Jewish housemate.[11] She is self confessed as not being able to cook. She got evicted on Day 15. She later dated Series 1 contestant Nick Bateman and used to sell chain mail to the fetish industry.[1] She is now married and working as an IT consultant.

Lisa

Lisa Jeynes (born 15 March 1968) was a shop manager from South Wales, who had recently completed an Open University degree in Social Sciences.[12] She arrived on Day 37 and was evicted on Day 50. Lisa did however attempt to re-apply to enter the following year's show, from which she was automatically turned away.

Her stay in the house became a national talking point, as some of the housemates believed she had once been a man. She said she can "kill someone with (her) two fingers", she was isolated by her housemates, particularly Cameron and Steph.

Lisa, who was once voted the 46th most beautiful woman in Wales, has twice tried and failed to claim damages for the media treatment she faced during her time on the show. She has appeared on a number of television shows including Trisha Goddard following her struggles with her media treatment and 'obsession' with plastic surgery. She was also romantically involed with James Hewitt.[13]

She briefly returned to the house in 2010 for the overall final series Ultimate Big Brother, in a task called 'Who Is She?' she stood in a line up with four other women, all of which said 'I'm Lisa Jeynes from Big Brother 4 and I could kill you with these two finger', Nikki Grahame had to identify the real Lisa and guessed correctly.

Nush

Channel 4 official site voting history

Notes

  • ^1 All housemates had to nominate one fellow housemate on Day 1, only a short while after they had entered the house. Every housemate who received a nomination faced eviction
  • ^2 In Week 4, there was a "double eviction"
  • ^3 Cameron made his nominations from the Big Brother House in South Africa over the phone to Gaetano. Even though he was allowed to nominate, nobody could nominate him
  • ^4 As Lisa had only entered the house a couple of days earlier, she was exempt from nominations. As Cameron had only recently returned to the house from South Africa, he was allowed to nominate, but not be nominated. On Day 43, the night the eviction was supposed to be on, a bomb scare forced all housemates to be evacuated. The eviction, therefore, happened the next day, on Day 44 (a Saturday). When Gos was evicted, there was no crowd outside due to Health & Safety precautions
  • ^5 Ray, as leader of the house in Week 7, had to choose the three housemates to face eviction. Following Lisa's eviction, voting lines opened for the public to vote for an evicted houseguest (either Justine, Sissy, Federico, Jon, Gos, or Lisa) to return to the house. As a guest in the Big Brother Australian house, Anouska was ineligible to go back, neither was Tania, who refused to return. As the chosen ex-housemate, Jon was granted re-entry into the house, but was ineligible to win
  • ^6 Because Jon was a guest in the house, and was not eligible to win, he was exempt from nominations
  • ^7 There were no nominations in the final week

Bomb scare

At 7:58 on Day 43, Big Brother had asked all housemates to go to the boys' bedroom until further notice because of a security alert inside the studios and staff left 20 minutes earlier, except for senior members of the production team who watched the house mates behind the mirrors, as the Big Brother gallery is unmanned after police advised to leave the house.

At 8:43, Police advised the house be evacuated. But since the Gallery is unmanned, Big Brother had no method of communicating with the house, so they had to enter the house. Senior members of the production team lead the house mates out via the camera runs, and taken to a secure area on the perimeter of the studio complex, with 2 chaperons and 4 security guards.

At 9:35pm, Marcus Bentley told the viewing audience that Big Brother had been continuously recording for 1009 hours and 15 minutes. Each set of tapes have a maximum recording time of just over 3 hours. The tapes were put in at 6:30pm. Moments later, the cameras went off.

At 12:49am, the Housemates were allowed to go back into the house after the police gave the all clear. The eviction took place the following day.

Also it has been confirmed in the 2008 UK series, Big Brother 9 that in the early hours of Day 32 the house was once again evacuated because of the second bomb scare.

Promotion controversy

To promote the series, a large 300ft hill figure of the eye logo was painted ontop of White Horse Hill, Oxfordshire, right above the famous Uffington White Horse, believed to be around 3,000 years old. Although permission for the figures' construction was agreed to by The National Trust, the figure angered local residents.[20][21]. It was washed off only a few days after completion.
