The Untold Story Of Reggie From Big Brother No Filter

    • Society & Culture

Australia first fell in love with Reggie Bird in 2003, when she became the third person in Australia to win Big Brother. The whole country knew Reggie’s name. They knew she was married, ran a fish and chip shop in Tasmania, and wore her heart on her sleeve. And that’s why we loved her.

But a lot has changed in Reggie’s life since 2003. And she’s continued to walk an unexpectedly fine line between public and private life over the past two decades…She’s been so famous she couldn’t work, then she’s HAD to work after getting scammed out of $40,000. She’s been an air hostess, a mum, lost her eyesight, gotten divorced, and now she’s chosen to go BACK on Big Brother. She joins Mia to talk about it all…
