Josephine Diane Shirley Gibson (born 24 January 1985) is an English television personality. In 2010, she won the eleventh series of the reality show Big Brother, and later that year, she appeared on Ultimate Big Brother.

In 2010, Gibson entered the Big Brother house. Throughout her stay, she received five nominations for eviction, and never faced the public vote. She entered into a romantic relationship with fellow housemate John James Parton and upon leaving Big Brother, the couple confirmed that they were dating. On Day 66 of Big Brother 11, Josie was selected by the other housemates to receive a ticket to the final. On Day 77 of Big Brother 11, she was announced as the winner with 77.5% of the public vote; the highest percentage out of any other Big Brother series.

After an interview with Davina McCall, she confirmed she was going to take part in Ultimate Big Brother, then re-entered the Big Brother house 18 minutes later. On Day 3 of Ultimate Big Brother, Gibson walked out of the house, while other housemates were nominating. It was confirmed that she was not returning to the Ultimate Big Brother house.

Her fellow housemates shared their sadness after her exit, with Ulrika Jonsson crying and eventual winner Brian Dowling predicting that she would have won if she had stayed.
