We almost spilled our wine when hot piece of eye candy Dan Neal waltzed into the Big Brother house. The ex-policeman gave up a ten year career in the force to make a name for himself in the world of celebrity. But as he tells GT, he’s adamant that he will use his fast track to fame for the greater gay good...
“Your sexuality doesn't have to become the most important thing about you. And I want to be a role model for gay dads because there aren't many in the public eye. “I’ve just started working with Stonewall, going in to schools speaking to kids about coming out, being gay and dealing with homophobia. I don’t want my son hearing the word ‘gay’ used as a derogatory term in the playground."
Daniel "Dan" Neal is a housemate from Big Brother 14.
Hunky gay police officer Dan describes himself as an all or nothing person. "There's generally no in-between with me". He came out when he was 23 and currently lives in Essex with his boyfriend. Dan considers his son to be the most important person in his life. "I brought him into this world so he has to be the most important".
Dan has been a police officer for ten years. He admits it can be draining at times and sometimes really upsetting but he has enjoyed it because he is making a difference. He says it is satisfying to catch the people that have done bad things and see them get sentenced.
Dan says his best trait is his loyalty and the fact that he is always there for his friends. He claims to fit in well with most people and thinks that most people generally like him. He describes himself as intuitive and thinks he can read people well. Dan enjoys the gym and feels guilty if he doesn't go. He is also a big Spurs fan and goes to a few games a season with his dad and his son. Dan says he is "not a typical gay" and that he didn't know he was gay as a child.
On Day 19, housemates nominated face-to-face during a live broadcast; after receiving two nominations from his fellow housemates, Dan faced the public vote. On Day 23, it was revealed that Dan would not be "fake evicted" from the House, as he and Wolfy had received the least amount of votes from the public. On Day 40, Safe House residents Sam and Sophie were told to pick one of their fellow housemates to join them in the Safe House. Unbeknown to them and their fellow housemates, the person they chose would join them against the public vote this week. They later chose Dan to enter the Safe House. He was evicted from the House on Day 44.
