Big Brother 2018 has started in electric fashion, with a house divide beginning to form after only a few days.
At the centre of attention is Lewis Flanagan, the second Lewis of the house, but the one who is from Middlesbrough, has long hair and much better abs.
The 27-year-old has constantly found himself embroiled arguments with Anamelia Silva. He also let loose in the Diary Room, swearing at Big Brother over the sleeping arrangements, where Tomasz Wania’s thunderous snoring has kept everyone awake.
Here are five things you didn’t know about Lewis F.
Lewis is Obsessed with His Body
Before entering the house, Lewis told Big Brother that he was a bit of a fitness freak, with a passion for yoga, meditation, cycling and the gym.
He’s already lead the charge for garden workouts, although Lew’s Instagram looks even more obsessive.
It may be a standard overcast day in London, but that won’t stop Lewis F from being the only geezer with his top off in the beer garden.
He’s a Flexitarian
If you didn’t notice from the picture above, the event Lewis was at was literally called ‘Vegan Nights’.
Vegan Nights is a monthly plant-based party on Brick Lane, where we imagine Lewy posed around topless telling everyone about how vegan he is.
He’s actually a ‘flexitarian’, which basically means a vegetarian who still eats meat from time to time.
Lewis’ Tattoo is Upside Down
Lewis F only has one tattoo – and it’s upside down!
The writing on his wrist that reads ‘love your story’ would typically face the other way. This is to stop people looking at his tattoo and thinking ‘well, that’s f*ckin upside down’.
However, Lewis took to Instagram to explain that he wanted it that way. He’s just so cool and quirky, ya’ know!
My first tattoo, when I got this the tattooist said that it was an upside down tattoo because when people read it it will be upside down, so I said to him it’s not for other people it’s for me.

My first tattoo, when I got this the tattooist said that it was an upside down tattoo because when people read it it will be upside down, so I said to him it’s not for other people it’s for me. This tattoo is a mantra, a reminder that even through the toughest times in life we must remember to love our story our life is like a book we are writing and if you were writing a number 1 best seller you wouldn’t move on to the next chapter if you weren’t happy with the one you’re currently writing and it’s the same in life, you can’t move on to your next chapter until you’re completely happy with the present one. No matter what we go through in life if we just take a moment to love our story and appreciate all that we have already overcome and achieved then whatever it is that’s holding us back from moving on to our next chapter right now, begins to lose it’s power and significance. Love your story ❤️ Mantra from @deepakchopra & @oprah meditation app Book – Millionaire success habits @deangraziosi
He’s Not a City Boy
Lewis is originally from Stockton-on-Tees, near Middlesbrough, but moved to London for work.
He left L-town after a few months, though, announcing that he just wasn’t suited to the hustle and bustle of big city life.
I have decided to leave London after this week, I’m just here working to be here and I’m not enjoying it anymore. Took a big risk coming here with next to no finances after turning down the main opportunity I came here for as it didn’t feel right, I could come back when I had more finances but if I had more finances I wouldn’t come back here, city life just isn’t for me I belong on a beach somewhere tropical and peaceful.
Lewis’ Passion is Self-Growth
Lewis’s main passion in life is not chocolate, football, wine or having fun. It does sound good on a CV, though.
The 27-year-old told Big Brother that self-growth and self-development is his main passion. He also believes that everyone should work on becoming the ‘ultimate version of themselves’ – physically, emotionally, financially and spiritually.
