Celebrity Big Brother (3) Is Back!

Remember the original Celebrity Big Brother series back in 2001? Yeh, of course you do.

It featured overly-bubbly TV presenter Anthea Turner being her usual annoying self, eccentric ex-boxer Chris Eubank being even more annoying, and eventual Winner Jack Dee humorously tunnelling-out and being pseudo-gutted when he wasn't evicted each time.

The most memorable event, however, was when ex-Chat Show host Vanessa Feltz cracked-up; she totally flipped out, scribbled 'big' words all over the dining room table and duly told Big Brother to get lost. Brilliant!

The thing is, the second series in 2002 was something of a flop. The six celebrities, including Les Dennis and Mark Owen, were evidently very aware of what could happen to them in the confines of the Big Brother house.

Consequently, all of the CBB2 contestants remained guarded and gave little away about their private lives; conversation was rather tame and quite frankly, the series dragged a bit.

It is for this reason that we felt there'd never be another Celebrity BB series... but we were wrong.

For 'Celebrity Big Brother 3' begins in the new year, now featuring eight celebrities instead of the usual six. That said, a little bird tells us that bosses are planning to introduce more contestants along the way, as in previous Big Brothers.

With the series extended to two-weeks, fans are being warned to 'expect the unexpected'. Further to that, word is that the producers have some really nasty surprises in store for the hapless celebs. Aww, shame!

But who's set to enter the famous Elstree house this time around?

Aha, that's Top Secret information at the moment, however some of the names bandied about over the past few weeks have included disgraced ex-Chelsea footballers Adrian Mutu and Mark Bosnich, sideburn-wearing racing pundit John McCririck and Cherie Blair's lifestyle guru, Carole Caplin.

Then there's the obligatory female models and love interests such as Victoria Silvstedt, glamour model Abi Titmuss and Sven-Goran Eriksson's glamorous (but deluded) partner, Nancy Dell'Olio.

The fiery Italian recently suggested that she has replaced Princess Diana in the hearts of the nation, but interestingly, another rumoured housemate is the woman who replaced Nancy in Sven's heart for a while, kiss-and-tell merchant Faria Alam.

Other (more interesting) possibilities include the feisty/scary Danish actress Brigitte Nielson, 'Son of God' nutter and conspiracy theorist David Icke, fallen entertainer Michael Barrymore and troubled Eastenders actor Chris 'Spencer' Parker.

To be honest though, however much cash Channel 4 might have dangled in front of them, those last two would be well advised to avoid entering the Big Bro house at all costs.

After all, it sent Vanessa Feltz completely loopy and arguably resulted in the break-up of Les Dennis' marriage. Fragile celebrities, you have been warned!

We could continue to speculate, but whoever it turns out to be, our spies tell us that the show's producers have had to make changes to the house in order to accommodate one particular housemate. Hmm, intriguing.

Roll on January the 6th 2005, when Celebrity Big Brother 3 begins on Channel 4 at 9pm.
