Celebrity Big Brother 2013 Housemate: Louie Spence

Age 44; Star Sign Aries; Home Town Essex;

Louie Spence is an English choreographer, television personality and artistic director of Pineapple Dance Studios.

He was a professional dancer and in his youth and performed in West End musicals such as Cats and Closer to Heaven.

Louie rose to fame in docu-soap Pineapple Dance Studios, which also starred fellow Celebrity Big Brother contestant Andrew Stone and Dance Studio regular Tricia Walsh-Smith.

Raised on a North London council estate, Louie lisped his first words and performed poorly academically. However, when he started dancing at the age of five, he shone. He has toured and worked with the likes of Take That, E17, 2 Unlimited, Boyzone, Eternal, Björk and Jocelyn Brown.

He was one of only five professional male dancers selected to accompany the Spice Girls on their debut Spiceworld tour travelling the globe for a whole year. His best friend was, and still is, Emma Bunton from the Spice Girls. Their similar work ethic and working class backgrounds made them forever friends.

Louie was formerly part of the West End cast of Cats as Magical Mr. Mistoffelees, a name he has great difficultly pronouncing, and for a year, he wore a Lycra cat suit with a yak’s-hair wig and tail.
