Who is Heavy D, what is the CBB and Storage Hunters star’s net worth and what’s his real name?

HEAVY D is a reality TV star who's best known for appearing on Storage Hunters and Celebrity Big Brother.

But, what else do we know him… and what's his real name?

Heavy D – aka The Boominator because he yells “Boom!” a lot – shot to fame after appearing as a main buyer on the UK version of Storage Hunters, which airs on the digital channel Dave.

In August 2016, Heavy D took part in the 18th series of Celebrity Big Brother. He became the fourth person to be evicted from the show after going up against Lewis Bloor, Stephen Bear and Renee Graziano.

According to his Mandy profile, Heavy D – whose real name is Colin Newell – is 6' 2" tall, weighs 23st, and has appeared in a handful of commercials and independent productions.

He also did a 2 year course at the Young Actors Theatre.

On his Mandy page, he says: "I am a versatile actor who specialises in playing the hardnut/gangster role. I take direction very easily and I am great to work with."

Before Storage Hunters, Heavy D, 45, was a cab driver and had been working the markets from the age of 8 years old, buying and selling women’s clothes.

Heavy D's net worth isn't known, but it's more than likely to be in the thousands – not the millions.

And if he keeps up his habit of trashing rental flats, and causing thousands of pounds worth of damage, the money won't last for ever.

Heavy D's ex-girlfriend, Bryony Harris, gave birth to the former couple's first child, a daughter, in September last year. The little bundle of joy is called Rory, and she was born ten days early.

The former couple were engaged but split on Christmas Day 2016 before briefly reuniting in February.

Since then they pair have been embroiled in numerous Twitter spats which came to a head when Heavy demanded she get a DNA test.

He told fans: "Basically my ex who is 7 months pregnant who says i'm the father has basically just said I can't have a DNA test, cant give me a reason why.

"And we split up for a week before the 'conception" and she went out and got steaming drunk with her mate. That's and too close for comfort!!"

He later announced he was going to appear on the Jeremy Kyle show to get the test, after being contacted by producers –  but Bryony was not happy.

Heavy D attempted to lure her onto television by posting a picture of a message from one of Jeremy’s TV producers.

In the text message, the producer encouraged Bryony to go on the show so Heavy D could “get closure”.

But she reacted angrily and replied: “I don’t need to go on Jeremy Kyle to get closure…

“It’s embarrassing Colin has even contacted you guys. I guess this shows how desperate he is to get back on telly.

“I hope you can understand I have more important things to focus on.”

Heavy D appeared on ITV's Judge Rinder after he failed to pay his former landlord £12,000 worth of rent and caused damage to the North London flat.

Heavy had also filed a counterclaim for £8,000 on the basis of loss of earnings because he believed a negative story that Stephen had told The Sun had ruined his career.

In November Stephen Cooper said he had only managed to boot the reality TV star out of the North London home after taking him to court and enlisting the help of bailiffs.
