Glyn Wise was an 18 year-old when he entered Big Brother.

Glyn claimed to have been voted the sexiest lifeguard in North Wales. One thing is for sure: after a quiet first week, Glyn proved increasingly popular with housemates and the public and came second in Big Brother 7.

He has been head boy at Ysgol Dyffryn Conwy in Llanrwst and reckoned he would be the envy of his schoolmates, particularly after having had a lap-dance during Big Brother.

Heralding from Blaenau Ffestiniog, Glyn Wise thinks in Welsh and speaks in English.

Bullies used to throw rocks at him at primary school, whilst for his part, Glyn hates animals. Meanwhile in the Big Brother house, Glyn has learnt to cook and can do a mean baked beans.

Straight after Big Brother, Glyn Wise had difficulty adjusting, his friend Heledd Jones told Wales on Sunday that travelling between London and Wales: "He [Glyn Wise] was cold on the train and was sleeping and shouted 'Big Brother can you put the air conditioning off please?'"

Glyn Wise's first presenting job since leaving Big Brother was co-hosting T4 with Vernon Kay.
