Celebrity Big Brother (4) Is Back!

The short-format ‘Celebrity’ version of Big Brother is back for a fourth series to kick-off the New Year. Yippee!

Okay, maybe we’re getting a little over-excited there, but after the slightly dull second series of 2002, last year’s Series 3 was absolutely superb.

Remember the dodgy bogie-eating antics and overtly chauvinistic behaviour of scruffy racing pundit John McCririck?

Then there was the Germaine Greer-instigated group revolt, after which the renowned feminist dramatically quit the show, but not before accusing Big Bro of being a bully.

And who could forget the surprise entrance of Jackie (“Yeah, Jackie!”) Stallone, a ruse which backfired on BB when the old gal made her peace with ex daughter-in-law Brigitte Nielson?

We still find it amusing just thinking about the time Kenzie and Jeremy killed themselves laughing when doddery old Jackie walked straight into a wall!

It is believed that the new series will last for a full 3 weeks; the previous three series lasted for 8, 10 and 18 days respectively.

And, although it will doubtless receive a major overhaul for Big Brother 7 in the summer, Elstree’s most famous house been re-jigged for CBB4.

But what fans really want to know is: which celebrities have been mad enough to sign-up this time around?

Well, as always, Channel 4 won’t release that information until the series actually starts, but we’ll probably write a story giving you a good idea who they are nearer the time.

There’s been lots of speculation lately about possible housemates and some of the names mentioned include: Lionel Blair, Faria Alam, Shane McGowan, Gillian McKeith, Johnny Vegas, Esther Rantzen, Derek Acorah, Jimmy and Liza Tarbuck, Dave Berry, Pete Burns, Boy George and Macaulay Culkin.

However, those who've almost certainly been signed-up are Michael Barrymore, Dennis Rodman and Anna Nicole Smith, the former having been a rumoured contestant before.

By the way, if you don’t know who any of the above-listed ‘celebs’ are, don’t worry, as you may never need to know if they fail to enter the House next month!

Whoever it turns out to be, inside sources tell us that Big Bro is continuing the Secret Missions theme from Big Brother 6, which will hopefully create some friction and paranoia within the contestant group. Great!

Celebrity Big Brother 4 launches on Thursday 5th of January 2006 at 9pm on Channel 4. Don’t forget to pop back and enjoy our coverage of the show, and maybe participate in our fun Discussion Forum?
