Celebrity Big Brother 2024 is in full swing, with plenty of drama, fallouts and evictions.


Marisha Wallace and Zeze Mills became the latest stars to leave the Celebrity Big Brother house in a double eviction on Tuesday (19th March).

One more cast member will exit the house ahead of the final on Friday, leaving five housemates standing.

One celeb who has managed to escape eviction (so far) is Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Nikita Kuzmin, though trouble started to brew for the star earlier this week after Fern Britton appeared to take a swipe at him.

"You and I get on alright when we're playing games," she began, before asking his age, to which he responded that he is 26.

Fern then said that even though she’s 66, you still "have exactly the same brain" when you are older.

"Are we having a beef?" Nikita asked. "What's happening?"

"Never look at an old person and think they're just old. We're still, in our heads, 26," Fern laughed, before continuing: "When you said to me the other day, and you were very sweet, 'I like your stripey top, stripes are in fashion Fern'..."

Nikita said: "I was just paying you a compliment [and] being nice to you," to which Fern responded that she didn't have a problem with him.

But Zeze Mills seemed to believe otherwise, as she could be seen hiding on the sofa whilst witnessing the exchange.

Nikita was one of the first celebs to join the 2024 season, which is the first celebrity version since the show was cancelled on Channel 5 in 2018, following Ryan Thomas's win.

Best known for his dancing skills, Nikita has managed to win over his housemates with his loveable character. So, could he be this year's winner?

As Nikita gets comfy in the Big Brother house, read on for everything you need to know about the contestant, including more details on his career on Strictly.

Nikita Kuzmin will be swapping the dance floor for the Celebrity Big Brother house as he makes his way into his new star-studded home.

Many viewers will recognise Kuzmin from Strictly Come Dancing, and he recently made it all the way to the final with Layton Williams.

In past seasons, Kuzmin has been partnered with Tilly Ramsay and Ellie Simmonds.

Kuzmin was rumoured to enter the villa prior to his entrance, with a source telling The Sun the dancer would be "an obvious heartthrob who can spice things up in the house".
