Former Sandwich Technology pupil Winston Showan has taken centre stage in the Big Brother house today.
Winston, who has lived in Deal and St Margaret's, was set a secret task on the Channel 5 show.
After revealing to his fellow housemates that he once threw up on a girlfriend, Winston was given the task of making up five similar stories that all ended in him being sick.
He told fellow contestant Christopher that when he was a teenager, he was sick after going on an expedition in the woods where he ate mud, squirrels and birds.
Another story involved an unrepeatable underwater incident involving an octopus. If his fellow housemates.
If he convinces the other Big Brother contestants that the stories are genuine he will win his favourite meal - spaghetti bolognese.
The star billing will do the the 27-year-old no harm in his bid to win the show.
He has been given odds of 5-1 with bookmakers Coral and appears to be popular inside the house - getting only two votes in the first week’s nominations.
Friend Maxine Cotton, 28, who used to live with Mr Showan in St Margaret’s said: “I lived with him and Chris [a close friend of Winston’s] over a year ago now. They are typical lads to live with, love partying, girls and the gym.
“I think he could win it, he’s already got a big fan base and a large circle of friends supporting him and he’s a nice guy, so why not?
“I think he’ll be well liked by the public... especially the ladies!”
