Tom O'Connell - Big Brother 2011
Tom O'Connell

Age (at start of series): 20

Age (now): 27

Home: Solihull

Occupation: Assitant

Star Sign: Scorpio

Status: Single

Interesting facts: Thomas hasn’t been in love before and one of the things he dislikes in life is not having a relationship. Thomas isn’t looking for love but if it happened, he would pursue it.
Mika lookalike Thomas describes himself as funny, talkative and infectiously energetic. He studied Psychology before dropping out of university after finding it dull and went on to become a retail sales assistant. 20 year old Thomas admits to being a party animal and loves dancing and being the centre of attention. Self-confident, he says he once challenged Ms Dynamite to a dance-off but she declined because “clearly she knew she’d lose”. He says that sometimes he mimes along to sad songs in the mirror and is so good that he can move himself to tears.
Thomas’ luxury items are hairspray and wax but he says he won’t be preening himself especially for the cameras – he wants to treat the house as his home and says he won’t feel the need to dress up while he is in there.
Thomas won’t like people who sleep the day away and he can be quite nosy, asking too many questions. He thinks this may put off his fellow housemates.
