Big Brother returned to screens last night on channel five with a bang. After a big send off last year and with a lack of Davina Mccall many people have questioned whether it would work this time.
Everyone thought Big Brother was dead and buried after a final series last year and an Ultimate Big Brother showdown, which saw Brian Dowling, crowned the Ultimate Housemate. But Channel 5 decided to make the brave decision to bring it back this year starting with a celebrity series first. The first difference to the show last night was the lack of presenter Davina McCall. In her place was Brian Dowling who although seems to be an obvious choice did seem to lack charisma last night. As the weeks go on he may improve, as I’m sure he was terribly nervous last night. The house has also improved with an up-to-date gym, a modern pool and a steam room.
As for celebrities, first in last night was Kerry Katona. I can imagine she will bring in viewers with people wanting to see what antics she will get up to in the house. She was popular during I’m a Celebrity and Dancing on Ice so I think it might boost her popularity. Second in was Tara Reid, most known for American Pie. She seems to be a bit ditzy and may annoy the other housemates. Third in was Amy Childs from the only way is Essex. I love the Only Way is Essex but it will be interesting if she acts the same, I fear she may get a bit bitchy. Paddy Doherty was in next, which was a surprising choice. The Gypsy wedding star will be interesting to watch to see his point of view on life.
Darryn Lyons was next in which was a weird choice, as a photographer of the stars wouldn’t normally get called a celebrity. His wacky personality might shone through with the public though. Sally Bercow the speaker’s wife was next in and she seems an interesting character. Going totally against her husband, she seems like she will definitely cause a stir in the house. Actor Lucien Laviscount was next in which was also a surprising choice, although he is popular with the public. The Waterloo Road actor is definitely eye candy for the girls. Next in was Pamela Bach Hasselhoff. The Baywatch actress will definitely be telling stories about her ex David and will likely speak her mind. Next in was Bobby Sabel, who is fairly unknown to the public. The model is likely to strike a relationship with one of the girls and I can imagine Amy will take a liking to him. Finally the terrible twosome Jedward ran into the house. I am interested to see if we will find out more about them separately and find out their real characters (They cant be that crazy all the time can they?!)
So a strange bunch of celebrities with ones to watch including Kerry, Jedward and Amy. It will be great to see how they develop over the next three weeks and who else may join them?!
