Name: Cleo Rocos
Age: 44
Lives: London
Occupation: Actress/ Writer
Why are you taking part in Celebrity Big Brother 5?: "The show used to scare me a little, but I've become addicted to Big Brother over the last couple of years. It's dangerous and unpredictable, and I like to push myself. I've trained with matadors before and don't think people should play anything too safe."
What do you think you'll get from the experience of taking part in CBB5?: "I think I'll have a lot of fun in the BB House, however I'm not really a good sharer, so I'll probably be the most neurotically private person in there."

Cleo Rocos - Celebrity Big Brother 5 Housemate

Cleo is best known for her work with Kenny Everett on his legendary radio and television shows. She became Miss Whiplash of his much-loved BBC1 show in the early 80s. Cleo and Kenny enjoyed a 15-year friendship fuelled by fun and laughter until his tragic death in 1995.

More recently Cleo has performed with Leigh Francis in sketches for his Channel 4 series "Bo In The U.S.A", produced "The Seven Year Itch" in the West End and is currently writing a new comedy series - a stark contrast to her first job as a professional skateboarder.

Cleo was once kidnapped in Buenos Aires and counts Darryl Hannah and Robbie Williams amongst her famous friends. She lives with her mother, loves to eat Mexican salsa for breakfast and has a pet parrot called Max.

Current Game Status/ Position: Cleo Rocos came 7th Overall (out of 14), lasting twenty-four days in the game.

Cleo was evicted at the 5th Eviction on Friday the 26th of January 2007 (Day 24) when up-against Dirk Benedict, Ian Watkins, Jo O'Meara and Shilpa Shetty. She received 28% in the public vote that evicted her, and because it was a double eviction, Cleo left the House with the 8th-placed contestant, Jo.

The 'dual' eviction was arguably a bid by the show's producers to protect Jo, as sending her out with a less-hated nominee was likely to invoke a mixed reaction from the crowd. Otherwise Jo, who'd become something of a hate figure, would have been seriously jeered, booed and chanted-at.

To re-iterate, the results of the 4th and 5th Evictions were announced one after the other, and Cleo had just beaten Jo in terms of survival in the game. However, both evictees left the House at the same time and were interviewed together.

Prior to this, Cleo hadn't faced eviction as she avoided the vote by her peers at the 2nd Eviction. See here and here. Also, at the 1st Eviction she was one of the 'servants' in the Masters and Servants task, and was therefore safe.

Nomination History:

1st  (Day 9) - Cleo avoided facing eviction at the first round because Carole was chosen by her peers to go 'up' instead. This was a punishment by Big Brother, and the group couldn't nominate Carole or Cleo as they might normally, but had to chose between them in addition to giving their normal nominations. See here.
2nd  (Day 15) - At the second round, Cleo received no nominations.
3rd  (Day 21) - Cleo was nominated by Dirk and Ian at the third and final round of nominations.
