Big Brother Penny Ellis is unrecognisable 22 years after stripping naked on air

Big Brother contestant Penny Ellis, who appeared on the second instalment of the iconic Channel 4 series, looks very different now.

Penny was an English teacher before her brief stint on the show and was known for her eccentric personality and for sleeping with a teddy bear.

Although her time in the house was short, as she was the first contestant to be evicted, fans will certainly remember for her display on the live feed.

Poor Penny was captured totally naked on the live feed after she dropped her towel to put her clothes on in the bedroom after getting out of the shower.

Channel 4 were forced to issue an apology for airing the moment, but the damage had been done and Penny said the show had "ruined her life".

She told Premier Christianity Magazine: "It has been 20 years of being mocked, and jibed and ridiculed.

"I lost all my money, my reputation, my church, my job, my self-esteem, my friends, my home – that two weeks in the house I lost everything."

Now, Penny looks totally different, as she has swapped her cropped bleach blonde hair for long locks in a more muted colour styled into curls.

She can be found on TikTok, and regularly shares animated videos and quirky jewellery to her fans.

Meanwhile, Big Brother has shared a sneak peek at the contestants for the reboot series, as the show's social media channel has shared the eyes of each star.

Fans will have to wait and see the full identities of the new line-up, as the show will come back to screens on ITV in a pre-recorded launch night.

Big Brother returns on Oct 8 at 9pm on ITV.
