After weeks of rumours, it’s finally been confirmed that former Gold Coast Suns player Daniel Gorringe is heading into the Big Brother house.
Channel 7 revealed the 27-year-old, who also played for Carlton, will make his return to TV screens on the new series of the reality show in June.
In a clip posted on the Big Brother Australia Facebook page overnight, the now-influencer admits he wasn’t the best footy player.

“The thing about footy is you gotta be able to get the ball and I just couldn’t get the ball, so I got sacked” he says in the video.
“I didn’t really believe I could play footy but for some weird reason I believe I can win this.”
Gorringe will battle 19 other housemates aged between 19 and 62, in a bid to take home the $250,000 prize money.
Fans first began speculating Gorringe was a housemate after he was mysteriously absent from his normally active social media accounts between February and April, which is when the show was filmed.
