Channel 4 have now confirmed what we've been anticipating
for the past few days, that some new housemates will be arriving
tonight, bolstering the number of contestants to twelve (after
In our recent Poll, asking 'As we go into Week 4 of 9, how
many new housemates should Big Brother put in?', 53% of voters
wanted three-or-four new housemates, coming-in as soon as
possible. 31% wanted just one-or-two latecomers, and only
16% of fans thought there should be no more.
So, the Top Bods have given you what you wanted.
Here's who's set to enter tonight:
Rachel Ifon - A 29-year-old cabin crew attendant
from Liverpool. She was a Pop Idol wannabe who made it to
the last 50 contenders back in 2002. Rachel says that she
has practiced a few different religions.
Andrew Edmonds - A 19-year-old student from
Wimbourne in Dorset. Andrew is a maths geek who attends Oxford
University and took his A-levels aged 13. He admits that he
finds it hard to talk to women. Funny that!
Keeley Johnson - A 30-year-old travel agency
Manager from Manchester. Short in stature, she considers herself
a successful woman but admits that she sometimes comes across
as arrogant. Keeley has dated a number of footballers and
(no doubt soap opera) actors. Yawn.
The three latecomers – two of whom were part of the
81 hopefuls group on Launch night (Spodface was doing his
exams!) – have all been allowed to watch the show, so
will go in armed with information about the outside world.
They will therefore know who's popular and who's worth sucking-up
to, but it goes without saying that the newbies will be forbidden
from discussing the outside world with their peers.
To tie-in with this week's robots theme, Andrew, Keeley and
Rachel will arrive by spaceship tonight, Friday the 9th of
July 2010, when Bob Righter ominously tells the group to look
to the skies.
Don't forget to watch the two live shows on Channel 4 at
9pm and 10.35pm.
