Big Brother’s Tilly Whitfield reveals she gained 16kg in the house because ‘there was a lot of really decent food’
Big Brother’s breakout star Tilly Whitfield has revealed she gained 16kg on the show.
Speaking on The Real House Husbands podcast, the 21-year-old blonde said she gained the weight because of the abundance of ‘really decent’ food in the house.
When asked about her cravings during filming, she said: ‘I honestly put on 16 kilograms going in. In the house I was just happy and at peace.’

‘There was a lot of food. Just not fast food. You can’t order Uber Eats whenever you want,’ she added.
Tilly also said she’d been body-shamed on Instagram since her exit from the show.
But she tries not to worry about her weight fluctuating these days because of her past experience with disordered eating linked to her depression.

She has become a breakout star since her debut on Big Brother, and is currently doing the post-eviction media rounds.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia earlier this week, Tilly refuted claims the show is ‘fake’ or ‘rigged’.
‘Big Brother is no way rigged, we knew what we were coming in to,’ she said.

Tilly said viewers shouldn’t be slamming the show for its twists, because Big Brother was always going to surprise the housemates when they least expect it.
‘There was always going to be secret rooms and people going back into the show,’ she said.

She went on the show with the motto ‘act dumb, play smart’ – breaking a record with her number of challenge wins.
But despite her best efforts, Tilly was ultimately sent home during a game of Russian Roulette against housemate Ari Kimber.
‘I don’t know if you could see my face, I just went numb. I couldn’t even cry,’ she said.
