Characters: Fresh Meat

The main housemates

Josie Jones

Actor: Kimberley Nixon


  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She's much less sweet than she initially seems, and often gets violent or destructive when she loses her temper.
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl: "I'm a single lady! Can't you handle it?"
  • Villainous BSOD: In series 2, when the housemates learn that she has been thrown off her course: "All I wanted was to give myself to dental hygeine..."

Kingsley Owen

Actor: Joe Thomas


Jonathan "JP" Pembersley"

Actor: Jack Whitehall


  • Horrible Judge of Character: Continually hangs out with his old friends from Stowe, who obviously don't like him and just use him for money. He's incredibly naive about it.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: JP tries variants of this pretty often, from paying Vod for the biggest room in the house, to bribing his way into a BP careers event. Sam even lampshades this in series 3: "You can't just throw money at me like a one-man Bullingdon Club".
  • The Nicknamer: Some of his nicknames are affectionate ("The Funky Vodster" for Vod), others not so much ("The Pig Man of Arbroath" for Howard)
  • Upper-Class Twit
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: To his distant dad "I know you loved me, even though you never said it... or showed it... or even implied it..."

Violet "Vod" Nordstrom

Actor: Zawe Ashton


Howard McCallum

Actor: Greg Mc Hugh


Melissa "Oregon" Shawcross

Actor: Charlotte Richie


Other housemates

Paul Lamb The Invisible Man



Actor: Jelka van Houten

  • The Comically Serious: She's very, very straightforward and sensible. That's what makes her funny.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Sabine's unfriendly treatment by the other house members makes you feel sorry for her...until it becomes clear she's not a particularly nice person to begin with.


Actor: Faye Marsay


  • Corrupt the Cutie: Vod and Oregon are doing their best on her.
  • Oop North: The only genuinely Mancunian member of the household, with a harsh accent to boot.
