Suzie Verrico is best known for her iconic TV moment with Nikki Grahame when the pair were in the Big Brother house in 2006.
But where is Suzie now and what did she do after her TV stint?
The stunning brunette was the ‘Golden Ticket’ winner on Big Brother 7, winning a seat at the famous house after snagging the winning ticket for a promotion with Nestlé.
At the time, she was just 43 years old and immediately became known across the country after getting into a heated argument with Nikki Grahame (see video above).
It all started because Suzie entered the house shortly after the original roommates, which meant she had special privileges.
Along with the privileges she had, she also had to nominate one of the other roommates – who she didn’t know too well – for the eviction.
Suzie nominated Nikki – which didn’t go well at all and ended up making for one of the most memorable TV moments of the ’00s.
Completely furious with the newcomer, Nikki stormed into Big Brother’s diary room, unable to contain her anger and frustration.
“I feel very toxic and angry,” Nikki scolded.
“How dare she vote for me. She doesn’t even know me. She doesn’t even know who I am.
“Like I am. She has never spoken to me. She wouldn’t even give me a chance. She wouldn’t even look at me.”
Then she asked, “What have I done?
“She just walked in here… walked in here in her gold dress and pushed me out and that’s not fair.”
The legendary TV star then blurted out the most memorable lines from the BB house: “Who is she? Who is she? where did you find her I hate her…I don’t even want to look at it.”
Both Suzie and Nikki made a good run through the reality competition, with Suzie taking eighth place and Nikki fifth.
When Suzie entered the house, she was already a model, had starred in a number of commercials and had a 21-year-old daughter at the time.
She won a golden ticket to enter the house after her then six-year-old Italian millionaire, Cosmo Verrico, bought 60 cases of KitKats to snag a coveted ticket.
The ticket ended up costing him £4,000 but it was well worth it because Suzie’s stay at the house led to her becoming nationally known for a short while.
Before Suzie landed a coveted ticket and then secured a place at the house, she had already auditioned three times for Channel 4’s popular programme.
When she was kicked out of the house, Suzie told host Davina McCall that the housemates were irrelevant because she’s only attending because she wants a career in television.
But her notoriety didn’t last long, and after the show, she ran an online shopping venture.
Suzie and her boyfriend eventually moved from Kent to a townhouse in Chelsea – with the couple believed to have owned a villa in West Malling.
In 2022, Suzie is keeping a low profile and has just 500 followers on Instagram, with a feed full of selfies, snaps and photos of her dogs.
