Big BrotherMario has revealed he was once Robbie Coltrane’s body double.

The hulking man-mountain – who bares a striking resemblance to Joey from Friends – told his fellow Big Brother housemates this afternoon he used to stand in for the Cracker actor.

Mario has also appeared on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and is believed to have been on Deal Or No Deal, Wife Swap and ITV quiz show Duel.

But Mario isn’t the only housemate to have been under the spotlight before entering the house.

Nutty Thai masseuse Kathreya appeared on BBC’s Dirty Rotten Cheater and wowed host Brian Conley with her height boosting platform shoes and wacky answers.

Conley told her “You’ve brightened up the show, and you’ve made me wet myself!”

Welsh beauty Rachel starred in a film alongside Hugh Grant and had a minor part in ITV’s Sherlock Holmes series.

And blonde bombshell Steph was famously booted off Popstars: The Rivals after lying about her age.

StumbleUpon It!
