Celebrity Big Brother: Who will be evicted tonight?!

Celebrity Big Brother contestants are facing the second eviction of the series – and it’s happening TONGHT! Yes, there’s no week-long wait after nominations this time, in fact Darren Lyons and Pamela Bach-Hasselhoff may have already spent their final night in the BB house!

Darryn and Pamela discovered they had been nominated by their fellow housemates on Monday – causing Mr Paparazzi to brand the likes of Tara, Lucien and Bobby ‘Snakes in the grass.’

But it looks like wacky Pamela is the bookies favourite to go – she certainly hasn’t made many friends in the house, so it’ll be interesting to see what the public have made of the former Baywatch star.

Who do you want to see evicted tonight? And more importantly – who do you want to win?? xxx

Celebrity Big Brother – It’s here!

The most talked about TV show of the last few months FINALLY hit our screens last night, and what a launch show it was!

Channel 5 pulled out all the stops to ensure that the relaunch of Big Brother was bigger and better than ever before. AND after weeks of speculation we found out just who was heading in to the house – at last!

As expected Tabloid Queen Kerry Katona, Essex babe Amy Childs and teen popstars Jedward were all revealed as housemates – but there were a few surprises in the line-up too! Read on for the full list, and all the gossip from the first show.

Kerry Katona

Tabloid queen Kerry was first in to the house, with a hairstyle that can only be described as ‘the Jedward’. She was clearly a bag of nerves, and cracked open the champers as soon as she got in to the house, proceeding to breathe far to heavily in to her microphone. She’s also been set the first challenge by Big Brother – read on to find out more!

Tara Reid

Was it just us, or did American Pie’s Tara, who got married just TWO days ago (she’s obviously not that bothered about having a honeymoon!) seem just a little bit on the strange side? She tottered up to host Brian Dowling with a look of complete confusion on her face, stumbled in to the house and started calling Kerry Katona, “Kerrah” – telly at its best, and this is just the launch show!

The bizarre sight of Kerry Katona sharing a glass of champagne with an American movie star was interrupted by the rest of the housemates – here’s a quick run down of just who you’ll be watching for the next three weeks!

Paddy Doherty

My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding’s Paddy seemed rather sweet considering he’s a bare knuckle fighter – but his accent is impossible to understand. The confused looks and blank stares as he introduced himself to his fellow housemates were priceless.

Amy Childs

No surprises here – the TOWIE star has been a rumoured Housemate for weeks. A very glamourous and pouty looking Amy strutted in to the house like a pro and greeted “Kerrah” like an old friend – they partied in Marbella this summer so BB will be a nice little reunion for the pair! We’re praying she asks Tara if she wants a Vajazzle!

Mr Paparrazi, Darren Lyons

Wacky Darren – a showbiz pap- arrived in a whirl of gold suit, pink Mohican and his pet parrot’s feathers hanging from his hair. An understated entrance then. Will the stars suck up to him in the hope the next pap shots of their misbehaviour may not be published? Time will tell!

Lucien Laviscount

Finally we were treated to a bit of eye candy in the form of actor Lucien, who you might recognize from Coronation Street. The cheeky chappy seemed to catch the eye of Amy straight away, as her eyelash fluttering and pouting went in to overdrive! Let’s hope this is the first signs of a romance brewing!

Sally Bercow

Sally is the wife of the Speaker in the House of Commons, and admitted that he wasn’t pleased she was taking part in the show. We think she seems feisty, and could make a very interesting housemate!

Pamela Bach Hasslehoff

Pamela, ex-wife of the infamous “Hoff” and Baywatch star was next into the house, after an entrance that can only be described as crazy. Host Brian Dowling – who we thought did a brilliant job, by the way – looked terrified as she hugged him, called him ‘buttercup’ and told him he looked like her dog! We think Pam is going to be pretty entertaining viewing.

Bobby Sabel

Hooray for model Bobby Sabel, who had all the females smiling the minute he walked down the stairs… unfortunately for them he admitted that he’s ‘rubbish with girls’!

Jedward

Last, but definitely not least, pop due Jedward came hurtling out on to the stage, cartwheeling hi-fiving and generally acting like two small children on Christmas morning – after eating a truckload of sugar. We’re not sure, but we think we may have heard Kerry mutter ‘oh no’ as they bounded into the house, while poor Tara seemed completely bewildered by the mad pair!

SO, that’s your lot – and here at Gala we think it’s a pretty amazing line-up! We’ll definitely be tuning in tonight to watch Kerry – who was set the first task by Big Brother. She has to throw a full-on diva strop and make sure the housemates vote her ‘biggest diva’ in a days time – bring it on!

Eastenders Sid Owen rumoured to be entering the Big Brother house

There’s just three days to go until Big Brother returns to our TV screens, and here at Gala we’re struggling to contain our excitement!

There’s just three days to go until Big Brother returns to our TV screens, and here at Gala we’re struggling to contain our excitement!

Channel 5’s re-launch of the hit reality show kicks off with a celebrity version on Thursday the 18th of August, and there’s one question on everyone’s lips – who’s going in that house?

The latest star rumoured to be joining the gang of famous housemates is none other than Eastenders favourite Sid Owen, who plays Ricky Butcher in the soap.

Sid – who came third in I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! in 2005 – made the decision to go into the house at the last minute, according to the Daily Star.

If gossip is to be believed, he could be joining the likes of Kerry Katona, Pamela Anderson and TOWIE’s Amy Childs – lucky Sid!

However, X-factor duo Jedward are also said to be confirmed for the show, and we reckon the pair – who are known for their crazy antics – may have Sid wishing he were back in the jungle eating bugs!

The celebrity version will be followed by a full-length Big Brother show featuring the latest crop of housemates hoping to follow in the footsteps of reality stars such as Brian Dowling, Jade Goody and Chantelle Houghton. Bring. It. On.

It’s All Change For TOWIE With Amy Childs’ Departure!

After weeks of speculation it was confirmed last week that Amy Childs had quit BAFTA winning show TOWIE in favour of pursuing other work.  As one of the most popular characters from the show, I wonder what effect it will have on viewing figures!

After weeks of speculation it was confirmed last week that Amy Childs had quit BAFTA winning show TOWIE in favour of pursuing other work.  As one of the most popular characters from the show, I wonder what effect it will have on viewing figures!

The bosses of TOWIE banned her from taking part in Celebrity Big Brother as they want their cast to remain normal and “real people.”  Err, too late I think!  Have they not seen all the constant press on the TOWIE crew?

What will the show be without our favourite vajazzler?  Her former co-star James aka Arg doesn’t think that her departure will make much difference to the show.  “In series two she was only in it now and then and series two was just as big as series one, if not bigger.  Obviously Amy will be missed but I think from how series two was received it proves the show is more than capable of carrying on without her.”

Personally I think the cast have all just gotten a little bit too big for their boots.  The best thing about TOWIE was the simplicity of it yet throughout the summer all we have seen are the cast posing on holiday, at premieres and promoting a whole host of different products.  Not to mention the battle of the TOWIE babes for who looks the best/the skinniest/the most tanned etc etc etc!  I don’t see how they can go back to filming TOWIE thinking it will be same because let’s face it they no longer have normal lives.

Well now that Amy is free of TOWIE she is set to appear on the new Big Brother alongside the likes of Kerry Katona and Jedward.  She has also already done some TV presenting on ITV’s This Morning which I assume is just the start of her new TV career.  As much as I love TOWIE, the fame that these guys have suddenly acquired was of course going to change some things for the show.  As for the rumours that bosses are pushing for the show to be on 48 weeks a year like Casualty, the words “too much of a good thing…” definitely come to mind!!!  Leave it as it is please so we can cherish the TOWIE moments instead of it being a regular occurrence!

They Are Back, But Are They Bigger Than Before: New Look For The X Factor And Big Brother!

This month a whole load of reality shows spring back into action!  It is the return of The X Factor and Big Brother.  However both of these shows will be returning with huge changes.  The X Factor of course has 3 new judges and Big Brother has moved to a new channel with a whole host of new people involved in the show.

The first official promo pics have been released for The X Factor with the obvious comparisons being made between Cheryl Cole and her replacement Tulisa Contostavlos from N-Dubz.  In the new pictures Tulisa has long brown hair full of volume and curls and is wearing a Herve Leger bandage dress which Cheryl is a known fan of.  Since she joined the X Factor team she has transformed from “chav” to fab and she looks amazing in the new promos.

In a recent interview she says that her new sleek, flawless appearance is down to a ‘glam squad’ of hair and make-up artists.  “I’m lucky to have a glam squad of hairdressers, make-up artists and stylists who help with red carpet events.  Once you’ve factored in hair straighteners and false lashes, it usually takes two hours.  I loved experimenting with labels like Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen during the auditions but I’m a high street girl at heart.  River Island and Lipsy are my faves.”

Also coming back to our screens but with big changes is of course Big Brother.  This year it moves to channel 5 and will kick off with a celebrity special.  I think the word celebrity should be used loosely though looking at the potential line up.  So far people such as Jedward and Kerry Katona have been suggested for the line-up and strangely so has Sally Bercow.  I doubt we were the only ones thinking – err who?!?  Sally Bercow is apparently the wife of Commons Speaker John Bercow…!  Yeah, we still have no idea who you are or why on earth you would or should be appearing on celebrity big brother.

Also apparently appearing this year is Pamela Anderson and Paddy Doherty from the Channel 4 documentary series My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.  It will be interesting to say the least, although how it can be called celeb big bro, I’m not so sure.
