21:00 – CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER IS BACK! Dancers parade along the red carpet as Brian appears from inside the Big Brother house doors.

21:04 – The first housemate to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house is ex-Coronation Street actress, Julie Goodyear! She enters with cheers and a sexy escort and Brian reveals she is the first celebrity housemate to enter the house tonight. She said: “I’m looking forward to it… bring it on, bring it on!”

—- AD BREAK 1 —-

– Julie Goodyear enters the house through the Diary Room door and says “Oh yeah, blimey, this is cool… hmmmm” as she wonders around the Celebrity Big Brother house in a multicoloured gown and attempts to enter the bedroom, which is locked.

21:13 – It’s time for housemate number 2… ex-Eastenders bubbly star Cheryl Fergison, otherwise known as Heather Trott. She doesn’t know whether she’ll be a good housemate but would like to be seen as a happy housemate. She enters the house with cheers and chants from the crowds. She explains how she sees Big Brother “as a bit of a holiday” and says that she has a few things up her sleeve. Cheryl explains she does not have a gameplan and thanks the crowds for their support.

21:17 – Julie and Cheryl are asked by Big Brother to enter the Diary Room – the chair cover has been replaced with a pink cover.

21:18 – Big Brother asks how the pair are – then sets them both a task. Big Brother asks how the house compares to Coronation Street and Eastenders. Tonight, Big Brother wants to see what type of drama Queens they really are – by turning the show into a soap show for the next 90-minutes. There are two ear-pieces, the pair have to insert these and follow instructions from Big Brother.

21:20 – Cheryl and Julie had troubles inserting these into their ear – every time the pair hear their show theme tune, they will be in soap mode – Big Brother wants to see stand-ups, tantrums and mishaps. If they complete this to Big Brother’s satisfaction, the whole house will be rewarded. As this is a secret mission the house must not find out what will happen.

21:22 – It’s time for housemate number 3… Mike Sorrentino from MTV’s ‘Jersey Shore’! He enters the house with a big reaction from the girls and says he is going to “wing it”.

21:25 – He enters the house to a confused pair – Cheryl has to take the ‘Situation’ to one side and tell him that she hates Julie so much due to her having an affair with her ex.

– It’s time to send another housemate in… it’s Danica Thrall star of Sex Lies and Rinsing Guys.

      Yes Jules that’s what we need something light-hearted and funny. I think Julie is gum chewing because she had been denied her cigarettes for a while. she will end up with jaw ache if she continues to chew like she did last night. Julie and Cheryl most popular women for me. :nod:

  18. Oh my god I’ve only just caught up on civilian BB after being away and Celeb’s off the starting blocks! I have so much to say! So far so good, amazed how many actual bona fide celebs have entered the house! Really hoping for some light relief with Julie, Cheryl, Julian and Coleen, they are all very likable and this will be a refreshingly funny series after the doom and gloom of the past ten weeks. Congrats to Luke A, wanted Deana but it was definitely the right final three and justice was served, sort of. Missed chatting with everyone hope this lot give us plenty to gossip about! :clapping:

  20. bbfan mark i agree with you it going to a fun show lets hope.

  21. rionablue on 12:41am August 16 '12

    Interesting mix of celebs. I think Julie might find it tough she seems much older than the others. Always loved Cheryl in Eastenders. I like Jasmine I think she is fiesty and fierce and doesnt pretend to be anything she isnt. Love Martin Kemp. Loved Spandau Ballet ( still do) Rhian is a complete waste of space. I mean what REALLY made her famous was her SEXTING with Vernon Kay ( very much like Natasha Giggs last year or other non entitities) Dont get me STARTED on Samantha ( Im too goodlooking) Never heard of a few of them but definitely there are more well known celebs than last year

  22. Why did Julie walk through the diary room not up the stairs??

  23. Conor is Gwennies little bitch on 12:47pm August 16 '12

    Agree that the task Team need to be sacked as they don’t seem to know what imagination and creativity mean.

    Julie Goodyear needs to have her cigarettes taken away and then we’ll see her kick off big time.

    Some of the girls are being knocked, such as Rhian, but Vernon was a naughty boy too. Anyway, why don’t idiots like The Situation, get knocked as much. He seems a complete numpty to me but I’m sure the fickle will love his tiny muscle.

    That Prince needs a personality transplant, no wonder he is still a bachelor.

    Julian Clary is by far the cleverest, so lets see him cut a few of those with huge egos down to size..
