Reality TV Show Celebrity Big Brother enters its tenth series tonight, and with the identity of potential housemates remaining a tight-lipped secret, with one rather mysterious looking housemate seen in public paraded in a balaclava by show bosses this week, it is anyone’s guess which of the silver screen and music industries stars will compete for our affections, and ultimately, votes this summer.
Here, What Culture! predicts five housemates who might enter the house tonight, as well as providing you with the low down as to who they actually are – because let’s face it, when we say “Celebrity”, we’re not talking Brad Pitt here.
5. Julian Clary
Comedian Julian Clary is among one of those tipped to enter the Celebrity Big Brother House tonight.
Known for his camp style, Clary arrived on the nations radar in the mid-eighties with several appearances on Friday Night Live, and he caused an uproar in 1993, during what has become an infamous appearance at the British Comedy Awards.
Then, he made a joke comparing the set to Hamstead Heath and stating that he had just been “fisting” the then Chancellor of the Exchequer Norman Lamont.
Garry Bushell from The Sun started an unsuccessful campaign to have him banned from television, but he hasn’t been far from our silver screens since.
He competed in the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing series in 2004, finishing third, before guest hosting topical quiz show Have I Got News For You in 2006 and again in 2008.
