Sarah Harding and Shaun Williamson make CBB entrances
They have been joined by a string of reality stars.
EastEnders star Shaun Williamson, Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding and TV psychic Derek Acorah have become some of the newest occupants of the Celebrity Big Brother house.
Actor Williamson, best known as Barry Evans in the soap, was the first star to enter and within minutes of walking in the door he was tasked with a secret mission to pretend to be incredibly nervous.
The trio were joined by Made In Chelsea star Sam Thompson who was cheered on by his sister and co-star Louise and said: “I’m super nervous, I’m not going to lie, it’s like going back to boarding school.”
Acorah told host Emma Willis he was joined by his spirit guide Sam and he believed the house could be haunted as he made his entrance, swiftly followed by Mob Wives star Marissa Jade and Gogglebox’s Sandi Bogle.
Reality star Chad Johnson drew boos from the crowd as he said : “If I happen to be the horrible bad guy, cool” as he made his way into famous compound.
The former contestant on The Bachelorette described himself as “successful, hardworking, gorgeous, confident and basically perfect,” adding: “On a scale of one to ten I would rate myself 200.”
He continued: “If winning this show means more money and more women then I want to win.”
Absolutely Fabulous actress Helen Lederer asked if it would be an “activity holiday” as she entered, followed by former Apprentice candidate Karthik Nagesan.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville ranted about her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian leaving her for Leann Rimes before she entered the house, while reality TV regular Jordan Davies said he planned to last far longer than his ex-girlfriend Megan McKenna.
YouTube star Trisha Paytas also drew a mixed reaction from the crowd as twirled in a pink tutu with long train and teetered on glittery high heels before her entrance ahead of tattoo model and reality star Jemma Lucy, The X Factor contestant Amelia Lily and former Hollyoaks star Paul Danan.
Celebrity Big Brother continues on Channel 5.
