Day 1 - Contestants enter the house, 1st Nominations
The 6 celebs arrived in style, quite literally in Chris Eubank's
case with him decked-out in his customary, but totally unnecessary,
jodhpurs and walking stick garb. Both Jack and Anthea's smuggling
attempts were foiled by the thorough Security guys, who frisked
the pair and promptly made them hand-over mobile phones and other
hidden electronic gadgetry. Once inside, Jack broke the ice and
made everyone laugh with an ironically funny quip about getting
away from all the cameras.
Jack and Claire checked-out the chickens, Anthea and Vanessa made
girly talk in the bedroom and Keith tried to make conversation with
Chris. Not easy.... at least, not that easy to get a word in edgeways,
nor to get a sensible word out of Chris.
At lunch, Chris challenged Keith, suggesting he was gay. This was
because Keith had grabbed Chris' crotch for a laugh at a charity
event months before. During the meal Jack was amused virtually every
time Chris spoke, almost cracking up at one point.
Chris showed Vanessa some boxing moves. By that stage of the day
and wearing a pair of boxing gloves, she must have been tempted
to 'accidentally' miss the punchbag being steadied by Chris!
After just 8 hours together, the housemates were required to make
nominations for the first eviction, live to the nation. They all
found the experience fairly difficult but Chris and Jack copped-out
by choosing their nominations randomly, using bits of paper and
playing cards. Jack got confused and messed-up his choices, consequently
letting Claire off the hook as far as being nominated went. Anthea
and Chris unsurprisingly faced eviction and both looked a bit shaken
Chris disappeared off to bed quite early while Keith, looking worse
for wear on drink, brought up the subject of masturbation embarrassing
everyone but Vanessa. The 5 sat chatting around the sofas until
well past 3am, polishing off the remainder of the wine rations.
