Sada Walkington was a housemate in Big Brother 1 (UK).


Sada was a 28-year-old writer from Edinburgh and Wakefield.

She is very close to her 82-year-old grandmother Esme as they have similar personalities. She is also close to her mother Deborah. They share recipes and cooking tips.

Sada is well educated and has gained a BA degree in Art and Archaeology and an MA in Oriental and African Art.

She has previously worked as a waitress, apprentice gardener, an actress, model, art researcher, but is now working as a writer. Her current project is a book called "Babe's Bible" to be published by Quadrille. Her dream job is to be a Yoga instructor.

Sada likes a diverse range of things like fish, oranges, aubergines, watercress, avocado, keep left signs, dates, figs, cereal, chocolate, windows, swimming, yoga but she dislikes pollution, timekeeping, lack of cycle lanes, ironing, supermarket shopping, organ music, baked pavlova, and bean curd.

Her favorite songs are "Be Thankful For What You've Got" by William de Vaughan, "Sweet Love" by The Commodores, "You Can't Hide From The Truth" by Handsome Boy Modelling School, "Central Reservation" by Beth Orton and "If I Don't Have You" by Gregory Isaacs

Sada auditioned for Big Brother as she sees her participation as a great adventure and an opportunity to learn more about herself and others.

Music-wise Sada loves Roots/reggae, funk, fusion, classical, Cuban. Asian, good pop and hates Commercial music, teen bands and the BeeGees

Her mother says about Sada, "At the age of 17 Sada took herself off round France with no problems at all. Whatever Sada's done she's always landed on her feet. She dares to be different and loves to stand out from the crowd. On her 18th birthday when everyone else was wearing pretty Laura Ashley dresses, Sada wore a trendy HyperHyper outfit with shoes in different colors."

Her good traits are resilience, adventurous, kind, can say sorry when she is wrong, sincerity, enthusiasm, reliability, confidence, and intelligence. Her bad traits are sarcasm, judgemental, gullible, and self-absorbed. Sada is well traveled having been to mainland Europe, Egypt, Indonesia, Jordan, India, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Singapore, East Coast of America, Australia, North Africa, and the Caribbean. Her dream holiday would be an African Safari on foot.

Sada's ambition is to be a Yoga teacher. In ten years time she sees herself as, in her own words... "I would like to think that I would still be interesting and interested."
