Ulrika Jonsson's CBB series is being revisited on Big Brother: Best Shows Ever - here's your need-to-know on what the presenter is up to in 2020.
Tonight's Big Brother: Best Shows Ever will look back on the 2009 series of Celebrity Big Brother, which featured the likes of Coolio, Mutya Buena and Ulrika Jonsson.
The episode in which Ulrika and the late Verne Troyer did the duet of Endless Love will be played out during the E4 show, which is hosted by Davina McCall and Rylan Clark-Neal.
Ulrika was crowned the winner of the iconic series of CBB - here's your need-to-know on her.
Ulrika, 52, is a Swedish TV presenter, author and model. She started her career as a weather presenter on Good Morning Britain in 1989, and later hosted numerous shows - including Gladiators and the National Lottery Draws.
She won Celebrity Big Brother in 2009, gaining 57 per cent of the final vote.
Ulrika later wrote a novel The Importance of Being Myrtle, which focused on relationships and was published in 2009. In 2017, she reached the final of Celebrity Masterchef.
Ulrika has spoken openly about her struggles with lockdown and homeschooling her youngest son Malcolm, 11, who she shares with her former husband Brian Monet.
She told her Instagram followers that she 'doesn't do cycle rides or gaming', and that she cannot go on the trampoline with her son because of back and hip issues.
Ulrika wrote: "I'm not fun-mum. I can’t jump on the trampoline (backs & hips). I don’t do cycle rides. I can’t game.

This boy. Youngest Ungrateful who has coped remarkably well so far. Until his 6 week ‘summer holiday’ was interrupted by virtual school lessons. Now he hates me for nagging him. And I hate being the nagger because it’s all I ever seem to do. I’m a liberal parent who likes to hand the Ungratefuls as much autonomy as is legally permissible but the word on the street is that, as a parent, apparently you don’t always get out what you put in. I’m not fun-mum. I can’t jump on the trampoline (backs & hips). I don’t do cycle rides. I can’t game. But I can listen. And I can show love and empathy. I can cook you food and moisturise your back. It’s just not as popular. But sometimes, just sometimes I want to be No.1 in the charts. #mothering

In March, Ulrika revealed that she was still dating the man who helped her end her five-year 'sex drought'.
During an appearance on Loose Women, Ulrika said coyly that she 'might be' in a relationship with a man she'd slept with following a five-year period without intimacy.
She added: "I was really nervous about whether I'd even remember how to even kiss.
"Weirdly with age comes all the insecurities about my body and ageing and all that stuff, but there also came this amazing sense of freedom.
"I'm 52 and I just want to do what I want to do and I don't care what anyone thinks. He was sort of my age but a little bit younger."

6.32am We’re all VERY excited about today being much the bloody same as yesterday. Which was pretty similar to the day before. But today we may have added atmosphere; a few more strops from the Ungratefuls and I’ll be scrambling around on the floor looking for my dignity and mental health #coronacrap
