Big Brother 3 star Alex Sibley has opened up on the tragic incident 16 years ago which cost him a burgeoning TV career.
After the show ended Sibley went on to get a number of jobs as a number of presenter but he was abruptly ditched in 2004 after a car accident in which a 63-year-old father of three died.
"A major thing happened in my life. A guy ran into the side of my car and died from his injuries," Sibley recalled in an interview with The Sun. "I lost my kids TV programme. I had a live show on Nickelodeon, and I was about to do panto.
"Because that all lost I then started f***ing hating Big Brother because it was my stepping stone into doing something else. I was making a lot of money. The first year I made nearly £250,000 which is insane. Every year after that I used to be a little bit excited watching it, but then it would bring back some bad memories.
"If you Google me it will say I was involved in an accident where someone died. It wasn't my fault though, but it's stuck. All I did was go to pick up my friend from the airport, and the police completely destroyed my career."
Sibley went on to reveal that he is now hoping to convince producers to select him for ITV's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!.
