Big Brother housemates 2012

Updated on June 7, 2012

Big Brother is here again! This time it's regular old Big Brother full of ordinary (a term used very lightly) housemates as opposed to the celebrities on CBB.

The majority of the contestants and housemates this year are attractive young people. This has been the way the show has been going since Channel 5 brought it from rival Channel 4 - and gave it a whole new lease of life.

The housemates in this year's Big Brother - the thirteenth - since it started in 2000, range from a female-to-male transseuxal (apologies if that's the wrong term) to an ex-gang member, Miss India, a male stripper, a token posh boy, and of course, the usual 'token' former glamour model.

The housemates in alphabetical order are... Adam Kelly, Arron Lowe, Ashleigh Hughes, Benedict Garrett, Caroline Wharram, Chris James, Conor McIntyre, Deana Uppal, Lauren Carre, Luke Anderson, Luke Scrase, Lydia Louisa, Sara McLean, Scott Mason, Shievonne Robinson and Victoria Eisermann.

So they're are the names of the contestants in Big Brother. Now for their pictures! These are the housemates... (see the captions for a brief description of their personalities)

Ashleigh Hughes: Dream job is as an air hostess (does she mean air head?) or TV presenter. From Essex but says she's 'not like that TOWIE lot'

Benedict Garrett: Teacher who was suspended when the school found out he was a stripper and had worked in porn. Make up your own mind on that, but would you want him teaching your teenage daughter?

Chris James:  Bailiff who says he'll be 'two-faced' in order to win. Looks like he already has two chins, and two bellies to go with those two faces

Luke Anderson: Born a female but began sex change procedure four years ago. Clearly so comfortable with his new identity that within moments of entering house had told housemates he used to be a girl (did you get the sarcasm there?)

Luke Scrase: Brags that he's the best looking alpha male and is a compulsive flirt. Note to Luke, bragging is not an alpha male trait it's beta male ;)

Now, there you have the pictures of the housemates from Big Brother 2012.

Already after just two days there was the usual fall-outs, sniping, backstabbing and talking behind people's backs. Rest assured, there will be plenty more throughout the show.

As for the actual winner, simply going by a one line description of their personalities it;s hard to tell at the minute. But transsexuals are always popular on these kind of shows. Nadia - a Portuguese male-to-female sex-swapper - won in 2004.

Here are a couple of previous hub on the Celebrity Big Brother housemates from earlier this year and the regular Big Brother contestants from 2011.
