Three Newbie Housemates Arrive Tonight

Three New Housemates Arrive Tonight... By Spaceship!

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 the eviction).

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.
