We're heading into the second week of Celebrity Big Brother, with 11 contestants remaining in the running to become this year's winners.


This year, 12 celebrities entered the Big Brother house, including this year's "lodger" Sharon Osbourne. Gary Goldsmith became the first contestant to be evicted after his signing was condemned by Women's Aid, who thought it sent the 'wrong message to survivors of domestic abuse'.

One contestant who has managed so escape eviction thus far is actor Bradley Riches.

Viewers may recognise the star from Netflix's Heartstopper, which just aired its second season.

Fresh off the high from season 2, Riches is hoping to show audiences another side to him they may not know outside of the series.
