Jonathon "Jonny" Regan is a housemate from Big Brother 3.


Jonny is a former fireman from Trimdon, County Durham.

Animal cruelty and animal testing make fireman Jonny mad and "people who think they're always right" do his head in too. But cigarettes and relaxing in the sauna make the 29-year-old housemate happy.

He'd like to be reincarnated as a woman to see life from a different angle or as Jonny himself succinctly puts it: "I'd like to see whether men are really as much of a pain in the arse as women say we are!"

Jonny became a fire fighter at the age of 18. He sings in a band with his brother and loves pampering himself with sun beds and saunas.
