    Kelly Povell 
Played By: Jaime Winstone

    Riq Rahman 

Played By: Adam Deacon

  • Celebrity Survivor
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Or rather, his stage name.
  • Only Sane Man: Space is the only housemate who seems content to keep to himself, remain calm and approach problems in a rational manner. He's also the first housemate to realize something's wrong when the outbreak happens outside. Everyone else bickers about mundane crap, but Space figures out that the cameras are off.

    Patrick Goad 
Played By: Andy Nyman

  • Bad Boss
  • Breaking Speech: Gives an utterly brutal one to Joplin.
    "You're old. You're a pervert. You're pretentious. You stink the bog out. Your clothes make you look like a cunt! They have poured insults over you like buckets of cum! D'you know what they call you when you're out the room? Eh? Gollum."
  • Cluster F-Bomb
  • Deadpan Snarker: He may be utterly horrible, but there's no denying he has the best lines.
  • Dirty Coward: When the zombies first attack he holds the door shut, locking his assistant outside to get eaten, and then shoves a man in a wheelchair in front of the zombie chasing him to escape.
  • Flowery Insults: Drifts into these from time to time, calling Pippa 'specimen' and 'fetus'.
  • Jerkass
  • Karmic Death
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • Manipulative Editing
  • Surrounded by Idiots: And the worst thing is, he's not wrong.
    Patrick: "Are you on a personal mission to redefine ineptitude?"
  • Token Evil Teammate

Played By: Warren Brown

Played By: Beth Cordingly

  • Anti-Hero: Even more ruthless than Kelly after a certain point.
  • Hidden Depths: At first she seems like the stereotypical superficial and thoughtless reality-TV type, being more concerned that she might not be on tele anymore than anything else upon learning of the Zombie Apocalypse, but once the reality of the situation sinks in she proves to be level-headed and pragmatic (if somewhat ruthless).
  • Celebrity Survivor
  • Ms. Fanservice: This was her image on Big Brother. It's present in the story itself to some extent, but it's not really played up for the audience.

Played By: Kathleen McDermott
