The first Big Brother winner Craig Phillips is going back into the house to join the Big Brother 10 housemates on Monday.

Craig’s re-entry into the house is nine years to the week that he first entered the show.

Craig’s agent Alan Hamilton said: “His first task is to go head to head in an assault course challenge with a current housemate. Craig laughed and recalled fondly… Nasty Nick’s pathetic assault course attempt and lies about being an ex military ace in his new autobiography Building Beyond Big Brother.

“We gather Nick was also approached, but didn’t want to show off his superior military skills again which made him lose the last challenge! Craig’s ready and raring to go.”

“We are as yet unsure as to exactly when he will leave the house.”

Craig’s fee for returning to Big Brother will be donated to cancer-related charities in memory of Jade Goody.
