Craig Phillips, the first ever winner of Big Brother, has put his family home up for sale for £1.5 million.

The trained bricklayer won the reality TV show in 2000, going on to appear as a celebrity builder on This Morning. He built his own 6,000sqft self build in 2019 for his wife, Laura Sheriff, and their two children – calling themselves Mr and Mrs DIY.
