Big Brother’s Grace Adams-Short and Mikey Dalton are still together 14 years on

Remember Big Brother couple Grace Adams-Short and Mikey Dalton? They’re still together 14 years on.


Grace – who famously got booed out of the house back in 2006 – struck up a relationship with Mikey during BB7.

And more than a decade on from the Channel 4 series that also brought us Nikki Grahame and Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace, they’re still together.

They now have a family with three children – Allegra, Spencer and Georgiana.

Following the airing of Big Brother’s Best Shows Ever, Grace took to Instagram to tell fans: “I just want to say a huge thank you for all the lovely messages I’ve had about Mikey and I and our family.

“14 years ago at 20 years old I decided to go on Big Brother for a bit of fun for the summer I never thought I would of found my future husband.

“Yes I was opinionated and had far too much to say (I don’t think this has really changed if you ask Mikey).


“Three kids later we are so close and happy and truly grateful for what we have. I hope the re-runs of the show has given everyone some light relief and good old fashioned reality TV during lockdown.”

Reflecting on their time on Big Brother in a recent appearance on ITV’s Loose Women, Mikey said: “There was an immediate attraction.

“I would be lying if I said yes that is the girl I am going to marry.

“When is saw her I thought wow this will be a fantastic summer.”

Grace added: “It was kind of like a holiday romance. We just enjoyed it really and everything we did since then has felt right for us.”

Meanwhile, Grace and Mikey aren’t the only Big Brother couple to welcome children.

Former Big Brother housemates Louise Cliffe and Stuart Pilkington had their first child in 2017.


Louise appeared on Series 12 of Big Brother in 2011 while Stu was a housemate back in Series 9 of 2008.

The couple revealed their son Eli in a post on Instagram.

“Our son Eli Mark Pilkington born the 1st of March at 3.30pm,” Louise wrote. “We can’t put into words how much we love him already or the emotions we went through.

“The hardest day of my life was also the best day of my life. Thank you to Stu Pilkington for looking after me and supporting me.

“Welcome to the world my beautiful son.”


Meanwhile, 2015 Big Brother housemate Harry Amelia gave birth to a child with fellow housemate Nick Henderson, although the couple are no longer together.
