Deana Uppal (born 30 January 1988) is a 24-year-old model from Wednesbury. She was the current holder of the title Miss India UK. On Day 1, Deana entered the house along with fifteen other housemates. She was randomly selected by Big Brother to be the first housemate to enter the house, and had to nominate three of the other housemates in front of them in exchange for immunity from the public eviction. On Day 70, Deana left the house in 3rd place. Deana received the most nominations of the entire series, and survived the highest number of evictions.

After her eviction, Carre appeared in a photoshoot for Nuts magazine.
Luke Anderson (born 1981) is a South African-born 31-year-old chef from Flintshire. He was assigned female at birth and used to be called Laura. He was one of two housemates called Luke in the house, so was referred to as Luke A to avoid confusion. In Week 7, he was nominated to face the public vote against Lauren, and survived. In Week 9, Luke A faced the public vote for the third time in succession, against three other housemates, and survived for a third time. On Day 70, Luke A left the house as the winner of Big Brother 13.
