Default Most famous celebrity contestant ever?

Who would youse say is the MOST famous housemate ever? I think examples are mainly male like Jack Dee, Mark Owen, Vinnie Jones, Dirk Benedict, Evander Holyfield? Who would you say tops the list?

most famous? meaning most recognizable names, it's gotta be the Jacksons...

after them, i think Dennis Rodman (especially after his most recent north korea adventures) or Evander Hollyfield.

I think mini-me(verne troyer) is pretty famous too....Austin powers was a HUGE movie around the world, everyone knows mini-me...

not really, i think even in the UK everyone under 30 didn't know who he was... i think the under 30s knew the towie and geordie shore people more than they knew him, right?

Plus Corrie's popular in Canada too, especially back in the 90s when she was in it.

Under 30s only knowing Geordie/Towie is a bit extreme.

Under 20s maybe. They are a very recent trend.

30 million? that's barely half of the population of the UK. at least 1 BILLION know the Jackson family, on every continent.

I can't even name any actors from American soaps, i doubt most british people know the soap actors there. for all the hoopla m,are about british soaps on BBC and the charity shows, how many british people actually watch that ****e? i really hope it's not as much as they think. If that many british peole are actually watching those lame soaps, then shame on you.

it's not popular in canada. lol who told you that?

do you honestly think if you went to canada and asked random people who julie goodyear is, they'd have any clue?? lol

they'd probably guess it was the granddaughter of the guy who makes blimps.
