Benjamin "Ben" Duncan is a housemate from Big Brother 11.


Tory boy Benjamin has already had a taste of fame starring on American Princess and Ladette to Lady, in fact he admits he'd do anything to avoid the standard nine to five job. He currently spends his time taking extra roles for TV and has written diary pieces for the Mail on Sunday and the Daily Telegraph.

As well as insisting he's not posh Ben claims to only be 27 and is adamant people should believe this. He's prone to lying as 'it makes life more interesting' and once told friends and family that he was going to Egypt to work on a book but in fact he was taken on a free holiday by a professor.

He is single but says he is currently involved with two people who are already in relationships, which he is supposed to be keeping schtum about. His biggest secret is that he once had a relationship with a beautiful 18-year-old before being seduced by her mother.

He's extremely passionate about politics and obsessed with the Middle East, wishing he was an Arab. He claims a harem of Arab girls would improve his home life as not only are they beautiful but they would also look after him.

Ben claims to not know a lot about Big Brother and hasn't told anyone he applied for fear of judgement from his friends and family. If he could take one luxury item into the house it would be a competent hairdresser and stylist.
