Pete Bennett is working as a cleaner.

The 34-year-old reality TV star - who won £100,000 on 'Big Brother' in 2006 - has set up a business as a "celebrity cleaner" where he will perform a number of household chores for £100 an hour.

He told the Daily Star: "I don't mind getting my hands dirty and I'll do any sort of cleaning job."

Last year Pete - who suffers from Tourette's syndrome - confessed he'd been left homeless after spending all the money he won on the show.

He said at the time: "The work dried up pretty fast, no-one would touch me with a barge pole because I was to do with 'Big Brother'. I lost it all.

"It all kind of went wrong, it didn't go to plan. I had all that money and I didn't know what to do with it.

"I put it on the wrong things. I was homeless after having so much money. It's easy come, easy go. The fame pushed me in a way I didn't want to go, I didn't like it."

And he also revealed that he struggled with drug addiction, getting hooked on ketamine.

He said: "I got into drugs 15 years ago, I've always been a party animal, I was addicted to ketamine. I went to get proper help for my addiction.

"He [the therapist] asked me about loss and I told him about all my friends that had died. I obviously hadn't been dealing with it, I'd been taking K and being disassociated with it.

"I'm in a better place than I am, it would be nice to have my mates here and all that, I've been through a lot of loss. I've got into acting and I've got into films, my Tourette's has calmed down ... Hollywood is next."
