SHE is considered to be one of the most iconic Big Brother contestants of all time after her famous hot tub romp.
But these days, Makosi Musambasi is a far cry from the young nurse who entered the house back in 2005.
The 41-year-old is now a hugely successful life coach and speaker, living in Nigeria.
She has built up an impressive social media following and is also a keen golfer.
During her time on the show, she famously got intimate with fellow housemate Anthony Hutton in the hot tub.
After the raunchy encounter, which incidentally also involved model Orlaith McAllister, nurse Makosi demanded a pregnancy test, insisting that she was 90 or 100 per cent sure she was pregnant just hours after the tryst – but she wasn't.

She left Big Brother with scandal following quickly behind her, insisting that she had had full sex with Anthony while he contradicted her version of events.
Makosi ended up coming third in the competition, but life got tough for the star after BB ended.
The former nurse, who hails from Zimbabwe, had been living in the UK on a visa which allowed her to stay as long as she worked for the NHS.
In 2012 it was reported that she was deported to Nigeria and banned from the UK after she tried to get into the country using a relative’s passport.

But Makosi only has positive memories of her time on the show and she looks back fondly at her 25-year-old self and being a "free bird".
She said: "(I remember Big Brother) with fond memories and nostalgia.
"The Makosi who went on Big Brother was a free bird.
"I look at her today and I'm proud she did that for herself. I get teary when I think about it."
She added: "It just makes me chuckle – it makes me laugh… I look at that 25-year-old Makosi and I think it was ingenious.
"I'd probably have a different game plan today, but that's what worked… My game plan took me right to the end."
