Celebrity Big Brother: Last Call For The C-Listers
CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER – THE LAUNCH: Sunday 3rd January, Channel 4, 9pm ALERT ME
No it’s not the eye of Sauron, but the logo of the final Celebrity Big Brother contest – and what a contest it is shaping up to be.
Before the concept rides off into the sun set this summer, Channel 4 bosses seem determined to create “the best show ever”. Of course posturing of this sort is not uncommon, but this year it seems likely to be true.
According to the tabs, producers are recruiting an army of medical staff to watch over potential housemate Paul Gascoigne after they failed to persuade a judge that Boy George’s inclusion in the house wouldn’t breach the terms of his probation following his abduction of a male escort.
Despite the infuriatingly tight-lipped nature of said producers, we are pretty certain that some of the celebrities expected to be unveiled on Sunday evening will include a dollar-eyed Vinnie Jones, tabloid dream Alex Reid and Ronnie Wood’s ex-gold digger Ekaterina Ivanova.
Also widely tipped to be in the house are Ivana Trump, Stephen Baldwin, notorious Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss, Basshunter (creator of the most annoying song of the last decade), Stephanie Beacham (??) and another former boyfriend of Katie Price, Dane Bowers.
TV bosses will also be delighted to hear that Alex Reid gave the Another Level star a damn good beating at Jordan’s New Years Eve Party (who invites two exes to a house party?!) which should add a bit of extra spice to the proceedings – if it were needed.
It is with a tear in our eye that we bid farewell to this well-trodden format; who can forget the redemption of Michael Barrymore, Jade Goody’s popp-adom at Shilpa Shetty, Preston & Chantelle, the breakdown of Feltz, Galloway’s cat, Germaine Greer storming out, Pete Burns!!!!
It has been a busy decade hasn’t it…
