Why is Josie Gibson famous?
Despite being a lovable household name for more than a decade now, Josie originally shot to fame when she won the eleventh series of Big Brother in 2010. Her bubbly personality shone through and viewers were only too happy to vote her as her winner.
She appeared on Big Brother alongside her love interest at the time John James which become one of her famous romances.
Since then, she also went into Celebrity Big Brother but walked out of the show just days later.
Josie continued to follow her TV path, appearing on shows including Celebrity Dinner Date in 2016 and The Jump in 2010.
Other career ventures include a fitness empire which consisted of an app and multiple DVDs releases.
She officially joined the This Morning team in 2019 as a competition announcer and got her first official spot on the famous blue sofa in 2021 when she had to stand in for Holly Willoughby - who has recently quit This Morning - last minute.
Who is Josie Gibson's son?
Josie is the super proud mum of her son Reggie James who she had with her ex-partner Terry.
Aged four, she welcomed her bundle of joy in September 2018.
After announcing she was going into the jungle, Josie admitted it was her most emotional goodbye to date with her son but knew this career move would better their life.
