Ken Morley is best known for playing Reg Holdsworth in Coronation Street until he left the soap in 1995.

Between 1988 and 1991, he was a regular in the BBC sitcom ‘Allo ‘Allo! and later guest starred in Red Dwarf.

In 2003 he starred in comedy series Hardware alongside Martin Freeman, and has also appeared in ITV’s Benidorm. In 2010 he portrayed Dick Cheney in Channel 4’s satirical show Bremner, Bird and Fortune.

Morley was an avid car collector of Fifties Cadillacs, but his collection has since been sold.


Age: 71

Why is he there? He says: “I spoke to a couple of people who have done it and had various results. One won and the other didn’t.”

What can we expect in the house? Aside from “a lot of flatulence”, a relatively humble personality who is not interested in winning. “I like to participate and enjoy the experience; it’s an irrelevance to me when I leave. I’ve done one or two cooking shows and been kicked off at the first stage”.

Odds of winning? 10/1
