Former Big Brother contestant looks unrecognizable 22 years after nude moment that ‘ruined her life’ on the show

Former Big Brother star Penny Ellis looks unrecognizable from her reality show days where she dropped her towel while naked 22 years ago.

The ex-English teacher, 55, was a born-again Christian and took part in the 2001 series, where she was the first housemate to be evicted on Day 15.

Penny seems very far from when TV fans first got to know her and she now has long gray hair and glasses.

The former reality contestant has gained popularity on TikTok and still sometimes discusses her experience while participating in the show.

At the house, Penny famously dropped her towel on the live feed, forcing Channel 4 to apologize, with Penny later saying the moment “ruined” her life.

Penny later said she never thought producers would air the towel moment and didn’t expect to see it in the papers the following weekend.

Penny has been outspoken about the negative side effects of Big Brother, previously claiming it “ruined her life” and led to her being fired from her teaching job.

Speaking to Capital FM, she insisted her application to Big Brother was “a mistake” and that she had actually tried to get in touch with Big Breakfast.

She said, “I tried calling the Big Breakfast to get my girls to read some of the letters they had written about bullying and about racism, but I got the hotline instead.

“So I carried it (the form) around in my purse and then I put it in the bin, took it out of the bin, ended up having to fill it out almost the day before it was due and send it in.”

“It has been mocked, abused and ridiculed for 20 years.

“I lost all my money, my reputation, my church, my job, my self-esteem, my friends, my home—those two weeks in the house, I lost everything.”

Penny learned she was fired from her teaching job when she left home with several outraged parents complaining about her.

However, Penny has also capitalized on her reality TV stint by releasing a book called Meet Me at the Mirror earlier this year, which details her rise to fame.

Penny’s Big Brother series was won by Brian Dowling, who later hosted the show on Channel 5 for two years.

Big Brother will return to screens on ITV2 later this year with AJ Odudu and Will Best as hosts.
