Celebrity Big Brother: Week One Highlights

September 13th, 2011

ATV Today looks at the highlights from the first week (and a bit) of Celebrity big Brother, which has proved a massive hit for Channel 5.



All of the housemates are in the living area. big Brother asks for one housemate to come to the diary room and Kerry goes in. She receives a secret mission which she must complete tonight, in three separate tasks. Firstly, Kerry must become the biggest “Celeb Diva” in the house “think Jo-Lo, Carey, McCririck,” big Brother advises. Tomorrow, housemates will decide which one of them is the biggest diva, if Kerry fails to convince them of her diva worth, she will be punished. “Why didn’t I let someone else come in, I’m not a Diva!” she comments before leaving the diary room.

Kerry returns to the house and complains that she wants a cigarette before yelling her demands to big Brother. Darryn tells Kerry not to get “wound up.” She tells her fellow housemates: “I expected more, somebody of my status should get more than this.” Jedward try to comfort her. Kerry moves away and tells them: “It’s on my contract you’re not allowed to touch me.” Kerry then lies on the floor and throws a child-like tantrum demanding cigarettes.


Jedward are in the diary room talking to big Brother about the house and say that it feels like “Jedward the movie.” Some of the housemates are in the garden talking about Jedward. Paddy says that he thinks the twins are “annoying.”


Darryn is in the living area talking to Jedward about their career. he tells them they should do kids TV. the boys tell him that they are making their own show for Ireland, UK and Sweden. Darryn ask the boys if they are making a “porn film.” Jedward look confused. Some of the housemates are in the garden. Kerry tells them that she is happy that she is single. Sally tells her: “You don’t need a bloke to be happy” and Kerry says that she does not want to settle for “second best.” Bobby gives Amy his jacket to use as a blanket. She tells him how her life has changed since she became famous.


In the kitchen, Jedward say that their time in the house is easier because they have each other. big Brother announces that the bedroom is open and Jedward run in and jump across all the beds. big Brother calls Kerry to diary room.  in the bedroom Amy is lying on her bed and calls Lucien over: “Come and have a chat with me.” Lucien looks nervous and sits on floor, Amy jokes “I wanna chat not get married.” Lucian looks hesitant and sits next to her on the bed. the pair mimic each others voices and Amy says: “Stop flirting with me,” “You call this flirting!” he replies.

In the diary room, big Brother tells Kerry that they are impressed, “You are a natural diva.” Kerry receives the rest of her secret mission. She must declare the classic line, ‘Don’t you know who I am?’ to three separate housemates. Then, after lights out Kerry must become unhappy with her choice of bed and convince one housemate to swap beds. She must then change her mind and ask to go back to her original bed. If housemates find out about her task, she will fail.

Kerry returns to the bedroom and during her conversation with Lucien she says jokingly: “Don’t you know who I am.”  They laugh while giving each other a high-five.


In the bedroom, Jedward teach Amy their Thriller dance routine. Some of the other housemates are in the garden, talking about alcohol. Sally tells them that giving up alcohol was “the hardest thing I’ve ever done.”

Eviction Night

The public voted out of the house Sally Bercow. the current, but maybe not for much longer, wife of the Speaker of the House of Commons, lost out in the public vote against Bobby Sabel and Kerry Katona. Saying later she felt like a loser. as so many political types often must do.

Sally told CBB host Brian Dowling: “I’m a bit embarrassed to be the first one out…. That’s a bit of a loser thing, but I had to come out some time.”

Despite the speculation in the press there could be forthcoming parting of the ways due to her CBB stint, Sally added, “I’m quite looking forward to seeing my husband.”
