Maggot, whose real name is Andrew Major, was born on June 17, 1976 in Newport in South Wales.
Maggot was 24 when he entered the Big Brother house in Celebrity Big Brother. Although he's 6'5" - he was not the tallest in the House with Dennis Rodman taking that honour.
A review in The Telegraph described Goldie Lookin Chain as the world's funniest band - although it did state: "Maggot does the worst breakdancing ever seen".
When Maggot and the rest of GLC signed a record deal to EastWest/Must Destroy, they held a party outside the Houses of Parliament with placards proclaiming the likes of 'Free Terry Waite', 'Golf Sale' and 'Weed has rights too'.
Maggot proved popular in Celebrity Big Brother and came third.
In February 2006 at the ShockWaves NME Awards Shows 2006 Maggot and Goldie Looking Chain were joined on stage by Rula Lenska.
Asked about Maggot's performance, Lenska commented: "I was amazed to see Maggot's physicality because we didn't see much of that in the house."
In 2006 Maggot was recorded presenting a nature documentary to be transmitted on the BBC in 2007.
