The owner of a hair salon in St Leonards is appearing on Channel Five’s Big Brother reality show.
Jason Burrill owns The Green Room on Sedlescombe Road North and was one of the housemates who went in to the house on Tuesday night (June 7).
Property developer and movie body double Jason is 45 and hopes to make acting his day job.
He has already worked alongside former EastEnders actress Danniella Westbrook in one movie – Essex Vendetta – playing the part of ‘Vincent’s henchman’.
He was also cast as Dave Bautista’s body double in the recent Bond film Spectre and the smash hit Guardians of the Galaxy.
Jason is originally from Seaford and now lives at Brighton Marina. He told Big Brother bosses he is currently single and looking for love and is not opposed to the idea of finding it in the Big Brother house in front of millions of viewers.
He also said, “I may look like a thug that sounds like Danny Dyer crossed with Frank Bruno but I’ve been told I’m actually just a big marshmallow with a pet Shitzu.”
Unfortunately, Jason’s ex-girlfriend has just been revealed as one of his fellow housemates.
There are 14 in the main house, with another six in a separate secret house.
Charlie Doherty, who is currently in the secret house separated from her ex, broke down in tears when she realised Jason was also on the show and living just a few feet away from her.
Charlie then admitted she was still in love with him, despite their relationship coming to an end.
In a devious Big Brother twist, Charlie has been told she is in control of Jason’s fate on the show.
Jason, who is unaware that Charlie is on the show, opened up to a fellow housemate revealing that they split up three months ago.
He said, “There’s a reason why she’s an ex, if I see an ex, I’ll be over that wall!”
The show, which has been running for 16 years, attracted the smallest audience in its history for the launch episode with only 1.5 million people turning in.
Other housemates include Marco Pierre White Jnr – son of the famous chef – former BBC reporter Andy West, model Laura Carter, an alleged former fling of Justin Bieber, and identical twins Emma and Victoria Jensen.
