Big Brother seven burst onto our screens in 2006 and with it came a host of new housemates – and some crazy challenges – as they battled it out to win the series.

One of the most successful contestants was Glyn Wise, 35, who was 18 at the time, and went on to come second in the series to Pete Bennett.

Now, in an exclusive interview with OK!, Glyn talks about wearing the same clothes for three weeks after being punished by Big Brother and why it was torture.

“I thought wanting to be like David Hasselhoff was a great idea, having this look with the slinky red shorts running in. I didn't wear underwear because I thought it would destroy the look so I only had a pair of shorts for three weeks," he said.

"I had to crawl up to people and ask if I could borrow a t-shirt. It was awful, it was torture really. I was quite annoyed watching Jenkin get his clothes back after three days in the new series, they have it much easier than us."

Adjusting to life in the Big Brother house was tougher for Glyn than he expected and he found the first week a big challenge.

He said: "I remember arriving into the house and it wasn’t what I expected. I thought I was a big character but its the melting pot of society, you’re there with people who talk over you, shout over you, you get drowned out by their personalities.

"I’ve never felt so lonely in the first week and then I got put up for eviction and thought not only am I lonely I’m also disliked."

Glyn was dealing with loneliness and also having to go up to the other housemates to borrow clothes when they were all coupling off.

“It was absolute madness. I would sit next to them and they said 'we’re getting off' so I was the gooseberry", he said.


As he got further into the show, Glyn managed to get through the series by finding the positive in the negative.

“I found the house to be a dream come true, it wasn’t tough. Even when I was up for eviction I said ‘I won't be leaving’ because I was so determined not to.

“The tough times, you ride the tough times. You need the tough times to get to the good ones. Negative times in the house didn’t come my way because I loved it so much," he said.

He added: “If I was sad I’d make my family sad because I knew they’d be watching. I didn’t want that burden on them."
