Celebrity Big Brother

Celebrity Big Brother: Launch

Series 11 - Episode 1 Celebrity Big Brother: Launch



X Factor reject Rylan Clark (the one with the mahogany tan and atrocious voice) has long been hot favourite to take this year's CBB crown, which is impressive considering the contestants are yet to be announced.

Also rumoured to be in the running are US reality power couple Spencer and Heidi Montag, Claire Richards, Frankie Dettori and Ryan Moloney who plays Neighbours institution Jarrod "Toadfish" Rebecchi... However, former deputy PM John Prescott promptly quashed speculation that he’d also signed on the dotted line and it now looks like former Generation Game host Jim Davidson is out of the running. Ex-housemate Brian Dowling will once again host. Expect ludicrous tasks and inane conversation. 


Brian Dowling 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 Big Brother house has been redesigned and revamped and is the most luxurious ever - but, as usual, there will be nowhere to hide as they attempt to take Julian Clary's title.
