Didn’t someone win this just the other day? No, wait, that was plain old Big Brother that wrapped on Monday night. The calibre of “celebrities” lured into the CBB house every year sometimes makes it hard to tell the difference. Even so, Channel 5’s “glittering” line-up is being kept tightly under wraps this year in order to keep the rumour mill churning. Names flung out include race-row former football pundit Ron Atkinson, and Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of the late Whitney Houston. Quite the breakfast table.

Last series jockey Frankie Dettori sat ashen-faced among the reality TV perma-tans; proof that there’s always one figure to make you wonder, “How did they sink to this?”


So the normal series is over for another year and Big Brother has had a few days to rest. Now the fun begins again as Emma Willis invites a fresh group of famous faces to move in together and have their every word and move recorded for the enjoyment of the viewing public. The series promises plenty of twists, turns and tough tasks to keep the celebrities on their toes as they compete to follow in the footsteps of previous winner Rylan Clark.
