Big Brother’s Hallie says she wants to ‘inspire’ people as the face of a lingerie brand
Big Brother’s Hallie says she wants to inspire people by appearing in a lingerie brand.
The 18-year-old youth worker impressed viewers and fellow housemates after she came out as a trans woman just two days after entering the house earlier this month.
And now she’s got her sights set on bigger things: “I just think I want to get my face out there on a few brands, sharing my journey, inspiring people and spreading awareness.”
“Imagine a trans woman on the face of a lingerie brand, like Ann Summers. That’s so f**king empowering.
She added that she wants to inspire people by “just being authentically me” and how “amazing” that would be for trans visibility in the UK.

“You ain’t see the last of me yet baby,” she said.
Ann Summers have previously said that trans people are “absolutely welcome” at their stores, with the late Jacqueline Gold saying in 2021: We want to make them feel comfortable. Our changing rooms are open to transgender [people].”

@pinknews “I don’t like how Jenkin and Chanelle shut it down.” #BigBrother’s third evictee #Hallie exclusively told #PinkNews what she thinks about the possibility anti-trans voters targeted her last week. Her housemate Olivia questioned if Hallie being transgender was the reason why she was voted out instead of Dylan or Trish, which was shut down by some of the other housemates. #bbuk #bigbrother #bbhallie #hallieclarke #trans #lgbtnews @Miss hallie ♬ original sound – PinkNews 🏳️🌈🏳️⚧️
During her time on the series she was punished for rule breaking after she was caught writing secret messages with fellow housemate Olivia.
After a rocky few days, she was nominated by five housemates for eviction and voted out by the public on 27 October.
Hallie told PinkNews: “I’m not denying it may have a part to play in the reason I was voted out, because there are people out there that do not like the way I live my life, and do not like trans individuals,” she explained.
“I think it was amazing that Olivia had brought that up, because it brought more awareness to it. I don’t like how Jenkin and Chanelle had shut it down and had been like, ‘no, she can’t say that,’ because they don’t know.
“It could have a big part to play in the reason I was voted out, because everyone was in shock. I’m not denying it had a part to play, but I wouldn’t like to think it did,” Hallie added.
Big Brother continues on ITV2 and ITX every Sunday through to Friday.
