We all remember the most 'Straya-in-the-2000s' couple of all time, Big Brother housemates Jamie and Katie, but where are the lovebirds now? 

In 2006, James Brooksly, aka Jamie, won Big Brother and also found a new partner in Katie Hastings 

Unfortunately, the couple broke things off pretty soon after leaving the house. 

Speaking with news.com, Jamie revealed, “We drifted apart fairly quickly. As part of my contract, I immediately started a promotional tour that lasted a couple of months. I was doing constant nightclub appearances and it wasn’t the best time to try and manage a relationship. It was too much for both of us.”  

Now, Jamie works for a Melbourne property developer and still has all his BB winnings, investing in property straight after leaving the house. He's also single, ladies.  


Jamie also shared possibly the greatest story of all time about his initial 'splurge' after receiving his prize money - 

"I remember I was constantly being asked, ‘What’s the first thing you’re going to buy with the money?’

"When the money appeared in my savings account, the first thing I bought was the new Shannon Noll CD as a bit of a laugh.

I ended up listening to it constantly and falling in love with it, though.

I met Shannon at the ARIAS in 2006 and I remember telling him, ‘Mate, track 8: Losing It All is your best work,’ to which he replied, 'Whoa mate, you’re legit, that was my favourite too!’

I got his number and drunk texted him later that night.

He never replied.”


As for Katie, soon after getting evicted, she made an appearance on Kath & Kim as Kel’s apprentice butcher (#thedream), but has laid low since then. 


She's now still living in Perth and is currently in a relationship. According to her Facebook, it seems she is also still friends with fellow housemate, John (known for his controversial removal from the house).
