HAMPSHIRE has its very own housemate in the Big Brother House.

Southampton-born artist Chris Wright was one of six new housemates to enter the futuristic-style house tonight - joining the ten that were already in there.

The 33-year-old, who also works as an actor, described himself as being “obsessively polite” and admitted that love was not on the agenda in the house.

The Ringwood-based artist added in his video, shown to viewers before he entered, that his reasons for going in were “free rent, to lose weight” and because he “can't afford therapy”.

He is now one of 16 housemates in the house for the latest series of the Channel 5 reality show, which this year has a Power Trip theme.
