The 30-year-old has released workout DVDs and appeared on many red carpets since winning the sixth series of Big Brother in 2005, but has now decided to go back to his first love of hairdressing.
"I have blagged as many pantos as I can in the last three years but it's time I got a proper job," he told North East newspaper the Sunday Sun.
"I'm looking to run my own business and settle down. I was a hairdresser before Big Brother so I'm going to go back to doing that."
Hutton is perhaps best remembered for a romp in the Big Brother pool with fellow housemate Makosi Musambasi, after which she asked for a pregnancy test.
The pair were briefly reunited while Musambasi was competing in the 'Ultimate' series that ended the show's tenure on Channel 4 in 2010.
