Craig Jonathan Coates is a housemate from Big Brother 6.
Gay hairdresser Craig, 20, from Norfolk set up his own salon a year ago and says he is the most talented crimper there is. He describes himself as 'fit, fanciable and deceitful', reckons he is the best liar in the world and is good at spreading rumours. He believes in Egyptian gods and money, while fit men make him most happy.

Big Brother 6Edit
On Day 1, Makosi was set a task to try and receive the most nominations from her fellow housemates. On Day 4, Makosi passed the task and was therefore immune from eviction. On Day 5, Makosi was told that, as she had passed the task, she must choose which two housemates should face the public vote that week; she chose Craig as one of her nominations. On Day 8, Craig survived eviction after receiving 40% of the public vote over Mary. On Day 12, it was revealed to the House that all housemates would face the public vote as a result of one housemate breaking the rules regarding the discussion of nominations; this housemate was Vanessa. On Day 15, Craig survived the public vote and Lesley was evicted from the House. Craig was evicted from the House on Day 76, two days before the Final, after receiving just 3.9% of the five-way vote-to-win.
