John James Parton was the 11th person to enter the house in series 11 of Big Brother, the final Big Brother series filmed for Channel 4. He described himself as ‘retired’ at age 24 as after the death of his father in a factory accident, John James inherited some money. He lived with his mum and flew back and forth to the UK from Australia for Big Brother auditions.
It was on the show that the Aussie blonde struck up a thang with fellow Big Brother contestant, later the show’s winner, Josie Gibson. The two had an on-again-off-again affair in the house, many doubting the real motive behind the romance.
On leaving the house, the two settled down together in London, moving in with each other. In April 2011 John James announced his split from Josie, and the last we heard of the Aussie hunk he was back in Melbourne being papped with new girlfriend Sherrie Cobley.
