Channel 5 had barely booted out the final celebrity housemates before they chucked another 13 in for our entertainment! Yes, Big Brother – the non-celebrity, two month long version – began on Friday night.

We already knew there was a twist in store – Host Brian Dowling revealed on Thursday that Baywatch star Pamela Anderson would be joining the housemates  as they begin their quest to become a TV presenter/singer/do a photo shoot for Nuts Magazine.

On seeing the latest crop of housemates, the first word that springs to mind is…young. The fact  that 28-year-old Spearmint Rhino ‘hostess’ Rebbekah and 30-year-old father of one Aaron referred to themselves as the ‘oldies’ of the house says a lot about the average age!

Even Pamela Anderson noticed saying: “Oh I really am going to be the mother of the house!”

Pamela had been watching the launch show as it happened, and was revealed to the new housemates once they’d all arrived. Cue a lot of screaming.

“Are you Pamela Anderson…You’re like, really fit in real life too.” whined sales assistant Mark. Many other pearls of wisdom from Mark followed – leaving most of the housemates looking slightly confused… or trying to get away.

But prize for the biggest idiot of the show so far has to go to 19-year-old Aden. The psychology student from North London spent his time telling anybody who would listen that he’s slept with ‘more girls than the average guy’ – but he doesn’t like to brag about it. Right.

Conversation over the weekend centred around who fancies who. Yes, already! Model Maisy, dancer Tashy and wrestler (yes really!) Faye huddled in a corner discussing the various merits of the male housemates, while Aden and Anton seemed to have formed a bit of a ‘players’ pact already. In fact, it’s all Anton can talk about!

Back to resident celeb Pamela Anderson – who set a series of tasks. What the housemates don’t know is that the winner of each task – who have to wear gold swimwear and a cloak – will be immune from eviction this week!

Holistic healer Heaven (try saying that quickly!) was victorious in the first task – impressing Pamela with her samba dance moves – while Aden was chosen as winner of the second, after a speed dating session with Pamela.

SO that rounds up Big Brother news from this weekend – Pamela still has two tasks to set the housemates, and we’re just waiting for the bitching to begin! What did you think??

‘The Bachelor’ UK Episode 2: “I’m deeply in love with him already”

Episode 2 of The Bachelor aired on Friday night – as 25 girls continue on the ‘quest of a lifetime’ to snare Gavin Henson as a life partner. They’ve got just 10 weeks to win his heart, so the competition is on! Things got off to a flying start, with eight of the girls taking […]

Episode 2 of The Bachelor aired on Friday night – as 25 girls continue on the ‘quest of a lifetime’ to snare Gavin Henson as a life partner. They’ve got just 10 weeks to win his heart, so the competition is on!

Things got off to a flying start, with eight of the girls taking on a zip-wire suspended over a terrifying drop, that had even Gavin admitting he was scared. In fact, Gav revealed that he doesn’t like heights at all – ‘I sometimes get an urge to jump’ he admitted. We don’t blame him – some of the girls on the show would have us hurling ourselves off the nearest cliff too.

Ok, so there are some genuinely nice women in the competition. Leila – who got to ride the zip-wire with Gavin and clung to him a little tighter than was needed (well you would, wouldn’t you?) – seems sweet, as does Nikki, who revealed to Gavin that she has a 2-year-old son, and got a rose keeping her in the competition for her efforts.

However a majority of the girls range from bunny-boiler to scary to just plain bitchy! Alleyah and Carrie are shown having a conversation that would probably have Gav running back to Wales as fast as his permatanned legs could carry him, had he heard it.

While Carrie admitted she’s ‘deeply in love’ with the rugby star (she’s known him for THREE days!) Alleyah breathlessly told the cameras that she wants him to be her ‘baby daddy’. Girls! Get a grip!

As for Carianne – you know, the one who sounds like she’s inhaled a roomful of helium balloons – well, she just doesn’t have a nice word to say. “I’ve nicknamed Ola ‘Ogre’ and Leila ‘troll’” she sniggered. What does that make you then Carianne? Hamster?

The next date was a beachwear photoshoot – which was basically an excuse for six of the girls to get half naked and drape themselves over Gavin. While stroking his impressive abs. Laura did nothing to contradict her ‘terrifying pyscho’ image, as she tied Gav to a chair and posed over him with a whip.

The rest of the girls took a more ‘traditional’ route, taking turns in welding themselves to Gavin’s side and pulling pouty poses – while the others glared from the sidelines.

The big news of this episode is that we witnessed not one, but TWO first kisses, as Georgie and Nikki got up close and personal with Mr. Henson… Ok, so they were more pecks on the lips than full on snogs, but if this is only the second episode – who knows what’s in store for the rest of the series!

Finally it was time to say goodbye to Alleyah and Vicky, who failed to connect with The Bachelor. Looks like Alleyah hasn’t found her ‘baby daddy’ just yet then! Who do you think will win Gavin’s heart? Keep tuning in every Friday on Channel 5 to find out. We know we will! xxx

Gavin ‘The Bachelor’ Henson meets the girls! (Episode 1)

Friday night saw the launch of Channel 5 spectacular The Bachelor, starring rugby player and ex-fiancée of Charlotte Church, Gavin Henson. “I’m so excited to have been cast as The Bachelor, as I really feel the time is right for me to find a girl to hopefully spend the rest of my life with,” said […]

Friday night saw the launch of Channel 5 spectacular The Bachelor, starring rugby player and ex-fiancée of Charlotte Church, Gavin Henson.

“I’m so excited to have been cast as The Bachelor, as I really feel the time is right for me to find a girl to hopefully spend the rest of my life with,” said Gavin.

Well, he’s certainly got a lot of choice! Gav was introduced to 25 ball gown clad ladies – each of them clearly desperate to make a lasting first impression.They copped a feel of his ‘guns’, had a cheeky squeeze of his bum, and babbled at such a speed that poor Gav seemed to be struggling to catch up!

And then came Laura. Ah Laura, who seems to think the way to a man’s heart is by forcing him to carry you up a flight of stairs.

“I’m not coming up those stairs unless you carry me. Carry me or I’m going home” demanded raven-haired Laura. Two minutes of cringe-making TV followed, as Gavin dithered, stammered, tried to make a stand…and then gave in, hoisting the singleton in to his arms.

We have a feeling that Laura is going to make brilliant television, but part of us can’t help but wish he’d just turned around and said: “off you go then, go home” – the look on her face would have been priceless! We’re pretty sure she would have scrambled up those stairs sharpish too – on her own two feet.

With so many girls and only one object of affection, there was always going to be bitching, and we weren’t disappointed. “I’m prettier than all of them” whined squeaky-voiced Carianne – and looked ready to hit something when it turned out Gavin didn’t agree, giving his first rose of the show to Blue singer Simon Webb’s ex-girlfriend instead.

Gavin presented roses to the 15 girls he wanted to stay in the competition, leaving ten devastated hopefuls to pack their bags. A pair of blonde twins were two of the girls sent home, and admitted that their choice to miss out on a one-to-one ‘speed-dating’ session with Gavin -because they didn’t have enough time to get ready – was probably a ‘mistake’ – well duh!

Overall we think Gavin did well in the face of so many beautiful girls – although he did seem just a tiny bit awkward – we’re pretty sure most of the guys we know would be seriously intimidated by such a situation!

What did you think? We can’t wait for this week’s show, which contains lap dancing, a dominatrix style performance from scary Laura and much more backstabbing amongst the ladies. Brilliant!
