Big Brother fans were left reeling over one piece of memorabilia from the millennium this week, as they discovered a snap of “Nasty” Nick Bateman standing alongside Brad Pitt.
A contestant on the first series of Big Brother, Nick, 52, had left the legendary reality TV show just months prior to the event.
The unlikely duo was photographed together at the premiere of Snatch, which starred Brad as Mickey O’Neil in the crime comedy flick.
Having directed the film, Guy Ritchie appeared in the photo alongside Nick and Brad, smiling at the lens.
At the time the photo was taken, the film director was months away from marrying Madonna, though their marriage would later come to an end in 2008.
Vinnie Jones also appeared in the background of the photo, having played Snatch’s infamous bounty hunter Bullet Tooth Tony.
Over on Twitter, Big Brother fans went on a trip down memory lane, reminiscing over the unexpected pairing of celebrities at the event.
One said: “Do you remember when nasty nick was pictured with brad Pitt and the likes. Was mental.”
