We're not going to lie - when we found out that Zoe Birkett was entering the Big Brother house earlier this week, the Digital Spy office got very excited indeed. What a blast from the past - and how much the "little podgy kid from Pop Idol with the dreadlocks" (her words, not ours) has grown up in the last 13 years. But it got us thinking - what happened to the other contestants? We put on our deerstalker, pulled out our magnifying glass and started digging...
Korben, whose real name is Chris Niblett, now seems to be going by the hybrid Korben Niblett. He previously worked at Jemma Kidd Make Up School, but according to his LinkedIn page (oh yes), earlier this year he launched his own company, Evolve Beauty. Not so much of the singing anymore, then...
Well, for one thing, he's not Rik anymore - it's Richard now! »

'Comedy Dad comes with a remit of injecting as much wit into each mealtime as Mark Lawrenson probably does into every waking moment'

The history of entertainment is peppered with notable figures who've adopted wittily counterintuitive names. Historical Nottinghamshire outlaw Little John was actually a burly bruiser; the malicious enforcer for Us premium-cable motorcycle gang Sons Of Anarchy operates under the pseudonym of "Happy Lowman"; while former Radio 1 sidekick Comedy Dave routinely sprinkled the mornings of Britain with amounts of merriment so minuscule they could barely be detected by powerful microscopes. The latest addition to this parade of nominative non-determinists clearly owes a debt of influence to Chris Moyles's payrolled pal, as displayed in the latest commercial for Birds Eye's frozen fare. Comedy Dad comes with a remit of injecting as much wit into each mealtime as Mark Lawrenson probably does into every waking moment. »

The Tour-winning cyclist and knight of the realm will turn up in Ambridge playing himself, as part of the 2014 Sport Relief celebrations
Ambridge, the sleepy, definitively English fictional village in Radio 4 soap The Archers, will welcome a very special visitor next Friday: Sir Bradley Wiggins, the laconic Tour De France-winning cyclist and Olympic champion.
Rather than take on the mutton-chopped farmer role he was born to play, he'll appear as himself, as Ambridge gets into the swing of Sport Relief and organises its own charity fundraising venture. Wiggins is the guest of honour, crowning the winner of a village contest, but will apparently get into some comic scrapes involving Lynda Snell's rusty bike.
"When I was asked to record a Sport Relief special for The Archers, there was no way I could turn it down," Wiggins said in a statement. "I grew up with it on the radio in the house, »
