Trish Balusa Big Brother UK – The global television phenomenon Big Brother is back in the UK for 2023, and it’s bigger and better than ever! The show will now air on ITV2 and ITVX, and it will feature a brand new house and a cast of carefully selected housemates from all walks of life.
Big Brother is a social experiment that follows a group of strangers as they live together in a house for up to 42 days, with cameras capturing their every move. The housemates are cut off from the outside world, and they must rely on each other for support and companionship.
On 7 October 2023, a day prior to the airing of the launch show, the Big Brother social media accounts posted close-up teasers of the sixteen housemates’ eyes
Who is Trish Balusa?
Job: full-time mum
Trish is originally from Congo. She came to England when she was nine-years-old and describes herself as “very left-wing and a feminist.”
“I always wanted to apply back in the day, my friends would always be like ‘I think you’d be good in there, you’re quite mouthy’! When I saw it was coming back I thought it was the universe telling me something so I just went for it. Also because I want to humanise refugees and immigrants, especially in this political climate. I want people to see that behind the stats and figures, there are real humans. We are important simply because we exist, not only when we participate in capitalism. We matter because we are alive and breathing – no human is illegal!” she said.
Big Brother airs weekdays and Sundays at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
