Top 10 Celebrity Big Brother moments ever

January 6th, 2012

Can’t stop. looking. At. Alex. Reid

As we get overexcited about sitting on our sofa every night watching celebrities have massive fights with each other over sausage rolls when Celebrity big Brother starts tonight, we thought it was time for a trip down memory lane. to a time when celebrities pretended to be cats, and wore mankinis, and had the chests of teenage mutant ninja turtles. this year’s line-up – which apparently includes rugby player Gareth Thomas, Frankie Cocozza, Kirk Norcross from TOWIE, some Playboy twins called Karissa and Kristina Shannon and Denise Welch – has a lot to live up to to be honest.

So here they are – our 3am best bits…

1. Jedward get vajazzled

Our first high point is the moment when ex X Factor stars Jedward, who were sharing the house with TOWIE star Amy Childs, got themselves a vajazzle, after they had kindly giving her one. Er, so to speak.

Oh god those little boy pants are just so wrong

2. Alex Reid in the mankini

Then there was Alex Reid, who unfortunately decided the time to wear a mankini was while living in a house that was being beamed out on to people’s TVs. oh Chantelle. Poor Chantelle. though Alex did go on to win Celebrity big Brother last January, beating Dane Bowers – who had also been out with his ex Katie Price.

3. Chantelle and Preston get together

Speaking of Chantelle, her appearance as the first ever non-celebrity in Celebrity big Brother in 2006 was one of the biggest stories in Celebrity big Brother history. Chantelle joined the house to try and convince the others that she was a member of a girlband, met Preston, and then the pair got married. they sadly split soon after and despite a brief reunion during Ultimate big Brother, Chantelle is now pregnant with Alex Reid’s baby, and Preston… well, we don’t hear much about him any more.

4. George Galloway does the cat

Then there was George Galloway, playing a cat that licked cream off Rula Lenska’s hand during a task. He was labelled a ‘laughing stock’ afterwards. He was also labelled ‘a bit creepy’ afterwards – by us.

George must regret this most moments of the day

5. Jackie Stallone does ‘Yeah Brackie’

Then we had Celebrity big Brother 3,when Jackie Stallone entered the house to see her formerdaughter-in-law Brigette Nielson with the now infamous (just us whorepeats it a lot of the time as a catchphrase?) ‘Yeah, Brackie’. Let’srelive that hilarity…

6. Les Dennis talks to chickens

Les: probably chooses the lamb or beef roasts these days

Then we take a trip back to Celebrity big Brother 2, which to be honest was a pretty boring series, but was saved by the frankly hilarious sight of Les Dennis – then still married to Amanda Holden and insisting their relationship was all fine (they split soon later) – talking to the chickens.

7. Vanessa writes on the table

Vanessa Feltz went into the big Brother house in the first series back in 2000, and after writing the shopping list, started writing words all over the table like ‘incarcerated, diffident, disparate, frustrated’. When she was called to the diary room, she refused to go, but later poured her heart out, saying she felt ‘hated.’

8. Darryn Lyons’s chest

Daryn Lyons and his strange old chest went into the big Brother house last year

Pap photographer Darryn Lyons entered the house in first Channel 5 series last year, and made an impression with his own, er, impression of a Teenage Ninja Turtle, after revealing that he’d had pec implants, despite not really being slim enough for them to look good. Or indeed just ‘normal.’

9. Ulrika and Verne’s duet

Ulrika and Verne doing Endless love – interestingly the video has been disabled on YouTube. was that you, Ulrika?

Back in 2009, Ulrika and Verne Troyer did a duet of Endless love by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie. Cheryl Cole may have said that it was ‘pitchy’, we’d just say it was baaaad.

10. Jack Dee tries to escape

After Chris Eubank left the show in 2001, Jack Dee tried to escape from the big Brother compound, by trying to dig his way out with a rake before trying to leave by the back gate. He was finally retrieved by security guards, and went on to actually win the show.
