Day 8 - Painting task, Final evictions, Winner
At around midday on the final day, Jack was telling Keith how hed
been imagining a gruesome thriller set in the house where everyone
died one-by-one. The experience was obviously getting to him!
A few hours later, Big brother had set the group their final task.
They had to paint their favourite view of the house. Jack seemed
like a natural and looked like a dab hand with the watercolours.
Conversely, Keith struggled to remember how to make the colour pink!
At 5.20pm, having finished their pictures, the 3 remaining contestants
sat for their final meal together. Within an hour they presented
them to Big Brother:
Keiths Pants To Poverty painting featured some
Comic Relief pants, the big lips drawn on the wall inside the house
and Big Brothers all-seeing eyes.
Claires My Memories featured something to represent
all the contestants. This included Chris boxer shorts complete
with boxing glove on the front, playing cards for Keith and a Guitar
Jacks painting, by far the best and most arty
looking of the lot, represented the silhouette of the cameras and
cameramen, just visible behind the many 2-way mirrors around the
At almost 8.30pm, Keith was the first of the remaining three celebs
to be kicked out of the house, a part of Red Nose Day live TV event.
Met by Davina and in the presence of an army of fans, Keith was
asked what he was most looking forward to doing? As Davina had apparently
predicted with the crowd earlier in the evening, his response was,
I need a drink!
During the Comic Relief programme presenter Zoe Ball asked Jack
if he realised that hed turned into a sex symbol whilst in
the house. Quick-witted, Jack replied, What do you mean, turned
into?! When asked whom he would have liked to have gone
in his place Jack said almost scathingly, Mark Lamarr.
Shortly after, it was time to announce the outright winner. It
was Jack Dee. He would have to stay in the house a little longer
announced Davina, much to Jacks apparent dismay! So, in the
tipping rain, Davina went to collect Claire from the house. Keith
had already gone ahead and met Claire at the door, walking her to
Davina and a huge welcoming party of family and friends. This prompted
a few tears from the overwhelmed scouse beauty.
this, it was time to go and collect Jack from the house. Waiting
outside the door was his wife Jane, who gave Jack a big hug and
walked him down the walkway. Both seemingly oblivious to the torrential
rain. Firework fountains followed them down the walkway and a spectacular
display exploded into the air. Jack was then met by his Mum and
Dad and watched highlights of his antics in the house; this re-iterated
how funny hed been and confirmed his status as the rightful
winner. Contrary to his usual comedy character, the smile never
left Jacks face the whole time and to justify his (well, everyones)
efforts, Davina announced that calls to Celebrity Big Brother had
raised over half a million pounds for Comic Relief.
A little later, at the end of what must have been an emotionally
exhausting day, Jack and the other 5 contestants were reunited and
interviewed live on TV by Graham Norton. Chris Eubank did most of
the talking and took some stick from the host. Keith was also ribbed
for his continual drinking! Jack took the opportunity to reminded
everyone that the shows success was down to the housemates
that made a bigger contribution by showing emotion, arguing or doing
something that everyone could feed off. He had certainly made things
more interesting himself, but respect to Chris and Vanessa without
whom it would almost certainly have been nowhere near as interesting
When asked if they would do it again, Chris was very enthusiastic
and Claire joined him in confirming that she really enjoyed it.
As they were all winners really for taking part, they each received
a tacky (in true Graham Norton fashion) oversized gold winners
medal, presented by Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders.
Wed really like to thank all the celebs for taking part and
providing us with some absolutely unmissable TV for the past 8 days.
We initially thought that the group was a little uninspired. However,
despite those thoughts and the fact that the press have harshly
harped-on about them being B-list celebs, we genuinely feel that
there couldnt have been a more entertaining group of people
Finally, many thanks to our readers for sticking with us, making
all those calls and donating so much money to such a worthy cause.
