Shaun “Barry from EastEnders” Williamson for Celebrity Big Brother 2012?

Watch this teaser video in which a desperate man stakes his claim to be a housemate in the new series


After being pushed off a cliff by Janine, Shaun “Barry from EastEnders” Williamson was taken under the wing of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant in Extras and Life’s Too Short. 


They hired him to pick up their laundry and paint their offices for cheap, helping him to carve out a name for himself as the most desperate man in TV.

Now Barry has taken it one step further, making a pathetic plea on the above video for a place on the 2012 season of Celebrity Big Brother, which starts on Channel 5 in January. 

Tearing his clothes off, he screams into the apocalyptic rain “Pick me!” while an implacable Big Brother monolith looks down on him. 

Really Barry, get a grip on yourself. To be honest, we shouldn’t give him the oxygen of publicity…
