This Friday one housemate will be evicted but two familiar faces will return to the Big Brother House.
Michelle Bass and Victor Ebuwa from Big Brother 5 will be introduced by Davina in front of the crowd however, their arrival will be hidden from the existing housemates as they will return not to the main house but to the Ultimate Big Brother Bedsit.
In a nod to the Bedsit in BB5 where Michelle and fellow housemate Emma spied on the house, Michelle and Victor will be able to watch and interact with the current housemates.
Living under ‘bedsit rules’ the pair will only have each other for company and will have to make sure they remain undetected from the rest of the house.
In BB5 Michelle and Emma watched all the action in the house and chose to turn off the hot water for their arch nemesis Victor every time he showered.
In Ultimate Big Brother Victor and Michelle will have similar influence over the house. They will be able to play secret pranks on the Ultimate Housemates as well as rewarding their favourites with nice treats.
The pair will live in the house for a few days until they both enter the House as fully-fledged Housemates.

What he’s remembered for:
The original “slick man” Victor was notoriously involved in the now infamous Fight Night during Big Brother 5 when he had a huge argument with fellow housemate Emma and he was given a formal warning about his behavior.
Victor was the alpha male of the house and thought of himself as the ultimate ladies man. He was king of the Diary Room one-liners and leader of the Jungle Cats gang that rivaled the Lipstick Bitches (which included Nadia and Michelle). He unwittingly began to suffer at the hands of fellow housemates Emma and Michelle who were able to punish housemates from the secret bedsit – they gave him cold showers for the duration of their stay. On day 57 he was evicted following an argument with fellow housemate Shell Jubin after the wedding task in which he was the groom.
His life post Big Brother:
Since leaving Big Brother Victor went to university to study economics and then worked as a stockbroker. He’s currently not working due to a back injury but says he will return to work soon because he misses the ‘money and the game’.
Prior to this new career Victor claims he was ‘in talks’ with MTV about presenting Pimp my Ride but the job went to Tim Westwood. Victor still has ‘beef’ about this. Victor has appeared on Celebrity Poker Club and various Big Brother related shows for Channel 4.
He has an 8 year old son and is currently enjoying the single life.

What she’s remembered for:
Brunette babe Michelle is remembered for ‘allegedly’ being the first housemate to have sex in Big Brother with her love-interest Stuart aka ‘Chicken Stu’. Michelle was determined to make Stu her man and became rather possessive of him until he succumbed to her feminine wiles.
Michelle, along with fellow housemate Emma, thought she was being evicted and actually ended up living in the secret Big Brother bedsit. Emma and Michelle were able to watch all their fellow housemates from the bedsit and control various aspects of house life including the hot water. They revelled in dousing Victor with cold showers. Michelle is often remembered for uttering the immortal order ‘No naked Jacuzzi’ whilst watching love interest ‘Chicken Stu’ from the bedsit as he enjoyed a late night Jacuzzi with fellow housemates.
When Michelle and Emma returned to the house their full wrath was unleashed after they had spied on the remaining housemates and this led to ‘Fight Night’. Michelle was evicted from the house just one week before the final.
Her life post Big Brother:
Michelle is now engaged to hypnotherapist Steve and also plans to work in therapy herself in the future.
Michelle’s relationship with ‘Chicken’ Stu continued out of the house for some time and made them tabloid favourites but the love didn’t last. Michelle bought herself a breast enlargement and went on to have a successful if short career as a glamour model and presenter on Television X.
In 2006, she released a single titled ‘Must Be the Music’ which had little success, although the song was selected to be in the final twelve to represent the UK in Eurovision 2007 but didn’t make the selection show.
