Big Brothers Makosi looks so different 16 years after appearing on show

Makosi Musambasi is one of the most memorable stars from Big Brother – and the iconic hot tub scene is one that many fans remember.

The former reality star, 41, now leads a very different life 16 years on from when she entered the Big Brother House in 2005.

At the time, Makosi entered the house as a young nurse, but shot to reality stardom while in the Big Brother House.

During her time on the show, she was seen getting intimate with fellow Housemate Anthony Hutton, who went on to win the series.

Following her raunchy encounter, Makosi asked Big Brother for a pregnancy test and said she "might be pregnant" hours after the romp – but she was not.

Makosi finished in third place on the sixth series of Big Brother and later re-entered the House in 2010 to take part in Ultimate Big Brother.

She worked as an NHS nurse had been living in the UK on a visa that allowed her to stay as long as she worked for the NHS.

The reality star was granted a sabbatical but it was later withdrawn when her former bosses discovered she was planning to use the break to appear on Big Brother.

She was then served with curtailment papers after leaving BB and later applied for asylum in the UK, but it was rejected.

Makosi later moved to Nigeria but, she faced issues when entering the UK again in 2012 when she was stopped at a UK airport for using a relative's passport to enter the country. She was later deported.

Now, 16 years on from her first appearance on the popular reality show, Makosi now has a hugely successful career as a life coach and speaker.

The former cardiac nurse has a huge social media following, boasting more than 40,000 followers on Instagram, where she shares stunning videos and photos of her life.

Makosi is also a keen golfer and regularly shows off her skills on her Instagram page.

Following her time on the show, Makosi has fond memories of her 25 year old self.

She has previously said she remembers Big Brother "with fond memories and nostalgia".

Makosi added: "The Makosi who went on Big Brother was a free bird.

"I look at her today and I'm proud she did that for herself. I get teary when I think about it."

She continued: "It just makes me chuckle – it makes me laugh… I look at that 25 year old Makosi and I think it was ingenious.

"I'd probably have a different game plan today, but that's what worked… My game plan took me right to the end."
