Who is Big Brother’s Nasty Nick?

Nick Bateman is a 52-year-old TV personality who was born in Burlington.

He was finally exposed by eventual winner Craig who confronted him on behalf of the group on day 35.

The episode drew in 6million viewers, with Craig announcing: “Basically, I have to say it Nick, I am very disappointed in yourself.

“I not only feel but am quite positive and have got evidence that you’re plotting a very dirty plan on everyone in here.”

As instructing nominations is against Big Brother rules, Nick was removed from the house.
