Donny Tourette - Celebrity Big Brother 5 Housemate

Little known Donny Tourette is the front man of the punk/ rock group 'Towers of London', who've supported 'Guns n' Roses' and Pete Doherty's band 'Baby Shambles' in the past. The band divide opinion in the British music press.

An early version of the band (The Tourettes) was formed in 1999 when Donny and guitarist brother Dirk recruited fellow band members at school. It subsequently disbanded and the Towers was formed in 2004. Donny wants to 'tell the kids who watch Big Brother what a real band is all about'.

Mullet-wearing Donny's reputation as a rock lothario has made him a regular in the tabloid newspapers, mostly due to his on-off relationship with Bob Geldof's daughter Peaches. He is also a hell-raiser, having been involved in several scuffles along the way and been convicted of criminal damage in 2005.

He has a dog called Toto and hates idiocy, liars and bad manners (although he has a propensity to spit). Something of a party animal, Donny says the things that make him happy are music, fags and booze. He arrived at the BB House on launch night seemingly half-cut.

Current Game Status/ Position: Donny Tourette came 14th Overall (out of 14), lasting just a few days in the game before he jumped over the wall and legged it on Friday the 5th of January 2007 (Day 3). See here.

When he entered the Big Brother House there were just 11 contestants in the game, but 3 more arrived on the night Donny quit (Jade, Jack and Jackiey). In fact, that was the reason he quit. See the second paragraph here.

If he hadn't hopped-it, Donny would have actually been safe at the 1st Eviction on Day 8, because he was set to become one of the servants in the Masters and Servants task.

Nomination History:

1st  (Day 9) - Donny had left the House by the time of the first round of nominations.
