We asked you who your personal heroes are, and you shared with us some really personal stories - thank you! So many of you came through and we're sorry that we couldn't possibly give a shout out to the hundreds of entries that we received. Instead, we have selected 14 in honour of the 14 Housemates currently in Biggie's house who shared their personal heroes during the Wager Task presentation.
