Andrew Davidson is a housemate from Big Brother 1.


Andy was a 23-year-old marketing product manager from Hemel Hempstead. He had a university education and gained a BA Degree in English and Media Studies at Sussex.

Andy's mother is called Lyn who works as a florist and his dad Denis is a Commercial artist. He is the brother of Formula 1 racing driver Anthony Davidson.

He says his ideal relationship would be "respectful, fun, honest and sexually open minded. Like two separate lives enriched by being together, not dependant on other party." Andy's hobbies include outdoor sports, swimming, mountain biking, travelling, experiencing other cultures. He's also a huge Go-Karting fan and won 3 rounds of the European go-karting championships in his first attempt with his brother Andrew.

He likes most music except thrash metal, free form jazz and blues. His favorite tunes are "Ocean Drive" by The Lighthouse Family," Modern Life Is Rubbish" by Blur and "Fire and Rain" by James Taylor.

Non-smoker Andy is very much a free spirit and hates to be tied down preventing him from having new experiences and meeting new people especially women. He hates speed cameras, snoring, vandalism and deplores the cultural tabooes and embarrasements attached to sex in the UK/USA.

Andy tells us his good traits are being down to earth, accommodating, confident, popular, clever, witty, exhibitionist, social, a risk taker and a thrill-seeker. He did admit to being a womaniser though and can't live with his penis.

Racism, deception, assumptive behaviour, hypocrisy, shyness and people with a lack of focus on fun and living life to the fullest are what Andy finds annoying in others and says he annoys others with his provocative and very competitive behaviour.

He is proud to have once travelled alone to India and also visited LA to see a Californian girlfriend and found it most annoying.

He describes himself as being obsessed by his brother Andrew's racing career and really admires Michael Schumachker.

Andy's ambtions are "To do as much crazy stuff as possible until I want to stop. Then I want to teach people using my experiences of the world/life. I would love to go to space." His ambitions include running a racing school/adventure holiday company for Westerners in the Philippines. In ten years time he sees himself starting a family.

Big Brother 1[]

While in the House Andrew grew very close to Mel, who had attended the same university, and they regularly flirted. He also got on well with Craig, Nick and Thomas, but the other women disliked him, considering him arrogant and too competitive. He bragged about his past sexual escapades, and claimed to have participated in a live sex show in the Philippines. Andrew was nominated for eviction on Day 18, receiving four nomination votes, and on Day 22 he became the second person to be evicted from the Big Brother House, receiving 68% of the public vote against Caroline.
