Big Brother winner opens Doncaster grooming salon

Groomer Chloe Wilburn, who won Big Brother in 2015, has opened a dog grooming salon in Doncaster, South Yorkshire. 

Wilburn, who won £116,000 when she won the reality show, has opened Barks of Sprotbrough on Thorpe Lane. The salon currently employes three members of staff. 

She told the Doncaster Free Press: “I found lockdown really hard and the working from home on a computer all day wasn’t for me as I’m a social butterfly and love interacting with people and so I decided to finally bite the bullet and go to college to retrain as a dog groomer. 

“Once qualified I opened a small home-based salon which was fully booked from the get-go and I’ve been turning lots of customers away ever since, most of which seemed to be from Sprotbrough. So at the end of 2023, I finally bit the bullet and went on the hunt for a shop front that I could groom from and also have a pet store.” 

The salon sells raw dog food, homemade dog biscuits and cakes, a variety of beds, bowls, and accessories.
