Emma Willis swiped the golden cock from the Big Brother house.
The 42-year-old TV presenter – who has children Ace, seven, Trixie, two, and Isabelle, nine, with husband Matt Willis – has confessed to pinching a number of animal figurines from the famous abode, which was demolished in November after the show was axed, including the cockerel which now sits outside her house.
She told OK! Magazine: “I went on a right robbing spree.
“There were lots of animals around the Big Brother house: we’ve got a couple of little squirrels in our kitchen and the gold three wise monkeys as well.”
The mother-of-three also has “the badger behind the sofa in the living room”.
Meanwhile, Emma recently admitted that January was a “weird” start to the year without Big Brother.
The former model was left devastated by the show being cancelled after hosting both the celebrity and civilian series since 2013, and admitted that she was left feeling off-balance last month.
She told The Mirror: “January has been weird if I’m being honest. When Big Brother finished, everybody was really sad.
“But I think all of us thought it would be nice to have a bit of time in January and not have New Year happen and suddenly you are back into it. But if I am honest I have really missed it.
“It has been lovely to have an extended amount of time at home with the kids but I am someone that likes to keep busy. I miss it. I really, really do.”
Emma previously explained that she was informed of the show being dropped just hours before the new series began and insisted it was impossible to “not feel sad”.
She told Fabulous magazine: “How am I meant not to feel sad, walking out and trying to host a show I love, knowing that it’s done?
“They could’ve done it a week before so that we all had time to take it in, or a week after so it could bed in.”
Both Emma and Big Brother’s Bit On the Side host Rylan Clark-Neal have expressed how much they would love the Channel 5 show to be picked up by another channel.
Last month, voiceover Marcus Bentley gave the biggest indication that the show could be coming back.
The 51-year-old television personality got fans of the reality television show excited about a possible return after sharing a throwback video from the recording studio.
