Big Brother’s Craig Coates unrecognisable 18yrs on from the show after getting tattoos and joining the Navy | The Sun

FORMER Big Brother star Craig Coates looks completely different now 18 years after his appearance on the reality show was filmed.

The season six contestant survived in Big Brother's house until just two days before the final.

At the time Craig was a 20-year-old hairdresser in Norfolk, and described himself as "fit, fanciable and deceitful".

Now the reality star is unrecognisable after getting inked and joining the Navy.

Although he still looks just as cheeky as he did on the show, the gay icon now sports two full sleeves of ocean themed tattoos.

He also has an unknown phrase written in a semi-circle under his collarbones.

While on Big Brother in 2005 the young man wore his hair in a spiky updo that was popular at the time.

Now Craig has a buzzcut, and no longer likes to go clean shaven, sporting a slight moustache and stubble.

He joined the army for a stint in 2013, but has since returned to his first love: hairdressing.

While in the Big Brother House he developed a close friendship with the eventual winner Anthony Hutton.
