Okay, so the only thing ‘celebrity’ about Celebrity Big Brother is the name this time around. Luxe Models hadn’t heard of some of this year’s housemates, and you probably haven’t either, so here’s a rundown of the 2015 line up.
The show has taken a ‘USA vs UK’ style, with six housemates from each side of the Atlantic.
Austin Armacoast – He appeared in Logo’s A-List: New York – a LGBT-focused series. He also dated fashion designer Marc Jacobs. “I would hate to see Farrah Abraham walk through those doors… this bitch is just a bitch” he told Digital Spy.
Farrah Abraham – You guessed it, that’s the next confirmed housemate from America. She
appeared on 16 and Pregnant in 2009 and the sequel, Teen Mom. She became even more ‘famous’ when she released her sex tape Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom in 2012.
Daniel Baldwin – Ever seen Mulholland Falls and Vampires? Neither had we. But apparently this 54-year-old starred in it, and he also has three famous brothers over in the States. Daniel is the eldest, and he’s now teetotal but can’t wait to see everyone else get drunk.
Fatman Scoop – Possibly the most famous US contestant, the 35 year-old made his fame from the incredibly catchy hit ‘Be Faithful’ in 2003. His reason for going into the house? Because everyone who recognises him starts dancing in the street even though there’s no music.
Jenna Jameson – A 41-year-old porn star who recently converted to Judaism. She loves British men, so could throw a few cats amongst the pigeons.
Tila Tequila – A former Playboy Bunny, this 33-year-old once claimed to sympathise with Hitler in an article. She reckons she’d end up in prison in the real world, so she’s off into CBB instead.
Stevi Ritchie & Chloe Jasmine – They’re going in as a double act and this duo from last year’s X Factor are now engaged. They are entering the Big Brother House to prove they are a normal couple – you know, like a normal couple?
Chris Ellison – At 68 years of age, the former The Bill star and previous winner of Come Dine With Me is the eldest housemate. Why’s he going in? Because his son called him a recluse.
James Hill – After getting fired by Lord Sugar on the latest series of The Apprentice, James was honoured to be asked to go into CBB. We weren’t surprised – he was outspoken and clueless for the most of the BBC Series.
Natasha Hamilton – Formerly of Atomic Kitten, the 33-year-old met current partner Ritchie Neville, of 5ive, on The Big Reunion last year. She’s going into the house in an attempt to kick-start her solo career.
Sherrie Hewson – The 64-year-old Loose Women panellist is going in for her grandchildren… Imagine your grandma in there? Exactly…
So there you have it. An eclectic mix of superstars. We recommend tuning in as it’s always full of thrills and spills! And there’s also Bobby Davro and Janice Dickinson going in as ‘Power Housemates’!
