Remember..; The one with Scouser Craig and Nasty Nick.

HUNKY builder Craig Phillips was the first Big Brother winner back in 2000.

The cheeky Scouser won even more fans when he immediately announced he would give the pounds 70,000 prize money to his friend, Jo Harris, who suffers from Down's Syndrome.

Jo needed cash to pay for heart and lung treatment unavailable to her on the NHS.

Lesbian former nun Anna Nolan landed second place in the public's affections while 'nice guy' Darren Ramsey, a former host at the Millennium Dome, was third.

The talking point in the show was the surprise eviction of 'Nasty' Nick Bateman after his scheming ways were discovered by the rest of the housemates.

The one with Brian and 'Oh my Gaawwd'

RYANAIR steward Brian Dowling, from Bog of Allen in Ireland, won over the viewers with his camp innocence.

He cannily took his cheque and let the dust settle on his victory before launching an attempt to find a 'credible' career in television.

Welsh hairdresser Helen Adams - famous for stating 'Oh my Gaawwd' at every opportunity and her love of blinking - was runner-up while 'father figure' Dean O'Loughlin, was third.

This time the talking point centred on the romance between Helen and car designer Paul Clarke.

Their encounters in the garden hut set the nation alight with gossip. The two are tipped to wed this year.
