Steven "Steve" Gill is a housemate from Big Brother 11.


This straightforward ex-serviceman amputee currently lives in Leicester with his second wife of 14 years and has nine children.

When Steve was 20 he was injured by a bomb whilst on patrol in Belfast. He lost both of his legs as well as an eye. He now wears a black glass eye which his kids love as he looks like a pirate. Steve says he chooses to wear shorts exposing his metal legs. 'I purposely walk around looking the way I do. It's better to be open about who you are.'

Despite his disability Steve is a transatlantic yacht racer and recently took part in the Royal Ocean Yacht Race. Steve has been unemployed for the last 20 years but would never want an office job due to his outdoorsy nature.

Steve hates stuck up, self opinionated, political people 'who think they know a lot about things when they don't'. He feels very strongly about, and lobbies for soldiers who have been injured. In the House he won't need to be fussed over but his fellow housemates may 'need to pick me up if I fall over'.

He also has a favourite neice named Lauren of which 18 years of age who he adores with most of his heart. 

Big Brother 11[]

On Day 48, after receiving three nominations from his fellow housemates, Steve was nominated for eviction. The following day, Steve successfully managed to win the weekly Save and Replace task; he chose Andrew as his replacement nominee. On Day 66, after Jo's eviction, housemates had to choose a fellow housemate to be given a ticket to the Final. They chose Josie; all other housemates faced a quadruple eviction. On Day 73, Steve was the first person to leave the House as part of the quadruple eviction after receiving 9.8% of the vote.
