Craig Chats For Children In Need
To many fans he came across as annoying, obnoxious and downright
nasty during his time in the Big Brother House. No, not BB1's
'Nasty Nick' Bateman or BB5's Jason Cowan, but last series'
camp crimper, Craig Coates.
Well, now he's back on the scene, because the man dubbed
'The Norfolk Stalker' during BB6 is helping the BBC in his
home County raise money for Children in Need.
God, they must have been desperate!
Although Craig had something of a (teen) following in the
early stages of BB6, the bitchy hairdresser eventually infuriated
the majority of the (adult) audience with his letchy behaviour
towards fellow contestant Anthony Hutton.
But, as predicted by us at the time, since the show ended
in August, series Winner Anthony has steered clear of his

the Press (and consequently the public) questioning Anthony's
sexuality. Craig even managed to take some of the heat away

to his hairdressing salon.
And what about the rumour that he's set to appear in a new
TV show where he'll dish-out fashion tips; a kind of ultra-bitchy
version of Trinny and Susannah? (this could actually be quite
If you'd like to catch up with Craig and find-out what he's
been up-to lately, head over to the BBC Norfolk website at
5pm on Friday the 18th of November 2005, when he'll be participating
in a live webchat.
And don't forget to watch the Children in Need Appeal show
later that night and help Pudsey Bear raise loads of cash,
all of which goes to help needy kids in the UK.
Legendary broadcaster Terry Wogan will be back once more
to front the show and the fun starts at 7pm on BBC1, with
music and entertainment continuing into the early hours.
