Big Brother Winner Bez Jailed In Manchester

by | 25th, August 2010

FORMER Big Brother winner and Happy Mondays lead percussionist Bez, aka Mark Berry, has been jailed. No, not in the Big Brother house with Makosi et al. He’s in a real jail with real CCTV.

Berry who had always seemed destined to play Smike in Nicholas Nickleby – The Musical,  had accused one Monica Ward, the mother of his two-year-old son and lead singer in his band Domino Bones, of stealing his money. He became upset and throttled her.

Before the Beak at Manchester Magistrates court, Bez is given a community order for an assault he already been found guilty of. He is also ordered to pay £450 in costs. He declines to comply. Adding:

“I’m not doing it. Bothered. I’m going to appeal and take this to a real court.”

He is duly sent to jail for one month. At which point he yells:

“Victory is in my grasp.”

And it is. But not in Big Brother…
