Luke Anderson (born 1981) is a South African-born chef and trans man from Flintshire, North Wales. In 2012, Luke participated in the thirteenth series of Big Brother UK. He was one of two housemates called Luke in the house, the other being Luke Scrase, and so they were referred to as Luke A and Luke S to avoid confusion. In Week 7, he was nominated to face the public vote against Lauren Carre, and survived.[1] In Week 9, Luke faced the public vote for the third time in succession, against three other housemates, and survived for a third time. On Day 70, Luke left the house as the winner of Big Brother 13 much to his shock.

In 2012 Luke was voted number 10 in the Independent on Sunday pink list, the highest position held by a transgender man to date.[2]

Luke is married to Jamie-Lee Anderson (née Hassett).[3]

During his stay in the Big Brother House Transgenderzone.com blogged every moment including images.[4]

Following his departure from the Big Brother House Samantha Johnson interviewed Luke.[5]
