Big Brother Timebomb: meet Simon Gross… again

Simon Gross is back in the house for a second (and hopefully longer) stint after being evicted during the launch show

Name: Simon Gross


Age: 46

Loves:  His home, gym, car, clothes, family, partner

Hates: Ill-mannered youngsters

Fun fact: He was been a panto star and also claims to have done “some stuff with Louise Spence” 

He says: 

I don’t do fake and I’ll bring them back down to earth. There is no strength in that house and that is what I bring. It’s like a cake with no substance. I’m the icing on the cake, darling! 

The recognition I have had from the public has been tremendous just from that two-hour stint. I was standing in Tesco on Sunday and there were people chanting “Showbiz” at me in the middle of the store! I will go in with a bang and live up to the Timebomb in my second, well-deserved, place. 

My father passed away last year and when you lose a parent it brings things home. This will be like a life coaching exercise for me.

I have had to fight all my life from being bullied at school because I was different so it has made me more determined to succeed. I am just going to be myself and get along with everybody fantastically.

I would love to work in showbusiness in theatre or TV. I do a lot of work for the elderly so it would be nice to do something with a charity. If the worst comes to the worst, I will get a job cleaning!


Here’s the moment Simon was evicted last time:
