Big Brother runner-up Jason Cowan has agreed to meet his birth mother, it was reported today.
The Scots muscle-man is said to have spoken on the phone to Jane Astrauskas, 46, who gave birth to Jason when she was 15-years-old.
She gave him up when he was only two and has not seen her son in nearly three decades, despite living only six miles away from him in Wishaw, Lanarkshire.
The former binman, from Hamilton, will meet Jane over the weekend, the Sun newspaper said.
Jason’s London-based agent Carina Trimmingham refused to comment on the report today.
She said: “I really can’t say anything about it.”
Before the show started, Jason, 30, had no idea who his real mother was and told fellow contestants he wanted to track her down.
Jane’s identity was revealed in the press days later and she is reported to have watched every episode of Big Brother before begging to meet her son at the final.
However, Jason’s best friend Alan Strachan is said to have felt it would be too traumatic for him to meet her after 10 weeks in the house.
After his eviction, Jason spoke to a counsellor and learned about his real mother in a debriefing session.
Since leaving the Big Brother house Jason has kept a low profile and did not attend the reunion barbecue with host Dermot O’Leary and the other housemates last Sunday.
