HER positive nature on Big Brother made her much loved, and Reggie Sorensen (nee Bird) is using that same attitude to get through life every day.

Reggie has lost much of her vision over the past few years, suffering from an eye disease called retinal pigmentation.

"My eyes are deteriorating really badly," she said.

"There is nothing that can be done about it."

The former Cambridge fish and chip shop owner, now based on the Gold Coast, is also a single mother to Mia, 6, and Lucas, 4, who suffers from cystic fibrosis.

Lucas has been in and out of hospital for the past few years.

Despite all this, Reggie, 39, still can still laugh and crack a smile.

"I went through my stages of being really depressed from it all. I went through a really bad spell a couple of years ago.

"But now I'm feeling really good. I think I've just got to make the most of each day and that's exactly what I'm doing."

Two years ago this Christmas, she split from her husband Dale Sorensen .

He still has an active part in the children's lives.s

Reggie said if there ever was a Big Brother All Stars, she would jump at the opportunity.

The Tasmanian became a national celebrity when she won Big Brother in 2003 and Chrissie Swan was runner-up.

"People always ask me if I would do it again and of course I would," she said.

"It was really good fun."
