MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 3, 2009) - As the final of Big Brother 10 hits UK TV screens tonight, Swinton, the UK's leading high street retailer of home insurance, reveals the UK's most memorable housemates.

A survey of 1,000 home insurance customers found the top ten most memorable housemates to be:

7. Michelle Bass (BB5)

8. Kate Lawler (BB3)

9. Chantelle Houghton (BB4)

10. Helen Adams (BB2)

The poll which looked in to the previous ten years of Big Brother found that the housemate people would most like to live with was Brian Dowling (BB2), followed by Craig Phillips (BB1). While as the contestant people would least like to live with was Marco Sabba (BB5).

Stuart Wilson (BB5) was voted as the sexiest man ever to enter the house and Vanessa Nimmo (BB5) was named as the hottest female contestant.

Steve Chelton, Insurer Development Manager for Swinton, a leading provider of house insurance, said: "For ten summers Big Brother has dominated our TV screens, and the recent announcement that there will only be one more series has come as a shock to many viewers.

"This survey shows that some of the contestants are still fresh in our mind, and there is no doubt, that even long after the show has gone off air, we will all remember Big Brother for many more years to come."
