Big Brother 1
Whatever happened to Craig, Anna, Nasty Nick and the rest of the original Big Brother housemates?



 BEFORE...
In the summer of 2000, 10 contestants were sent to a house isolated from contact with the outside world. Each week the contestants would nominate each other to be put up for eviction by a public vote.
Once there were just three contestants left, the public would vote for a winner who would win 70,000.
Sada Wilkington, a writer and yoga enthusiast, was first to be voted out, followed by marketing manager Andrew Davidson.
Caroline O'Shea, a former sex-aids saleswoman, was next to be evicted.
Stockbroker Nick Bateman, who was nicknamed "Nasty Nick" was then disqualified for trying to influence other contestants nominations.
Nichola Holt, a textile artist, was the fourth person to be evicted, as Claire Strutton, a florist, entered the house in place of the disqualified "Nasty Nick".
Thomas McDermott, a computer design consultant, was the next person to evicted, followed by Claire, and then Melanie Hill, a sales executive from London.
Three contestants were then left out of which the public was to vote for a winner.
In third place was Darren Ramsay, who worked at the millenium dome, and then Anna Nolan, a former trainee nun, was second.
Craig Phillips, a builder from Merseyside, won the 70,000 prize and donated it to a friend who needed a vital operation.
