The mysterious line-up of housemates for Celebrity Big Brother 2015 has finally been revealed in a glitzy launch show which pitted UK housemates against their USA counterparts.
Porn star Jenna Jameson, Hollywood actor Daniel Baldwin, Tila Tequila, and rapper Fatman Scoop were among the arrivals representing the USA while the UK saw an array of TV stars including reality show contestants James Hill of The Apprentice and former X Factor contestants Stevi Ritchie and Chloe Jasmine.
However, once the 12 contestants had finally arrived, Big Brother delivered his trademark launch night twist. The UK Vs USA aspect of the show immediately came into play with both teams pitted against each other for a task firing footballs from a cannon.
Team UK won 3:1 and had to choose three USA housemates they did not want to partake in a celebratory party. They chose Farrah Abraham, Scoop, and dawdled on the third as the programme ended.
Bobby Davro and Janice Dickinson are slated to arrive tomorrow for a "live showdown"
Earlier in the evening, Loose Women panelist and former Coronation Street star Sherrie Hewson (64) was first in. Viewers were informed she was born with webbed feet before she entered the house in a metallic silver gown.
"You won't see me in a bikini because I haven't worn one since I was 10," she said.
She also said she'd like to see some "eye candy" in the house but added, "If people do adult things in the same bedroom as me I think I'd have to say something. I'm all up for rumpy pumpy but I'd say 'Is there any possibility of another place you could do rumpy pumpy.'"
Rapper Fatman Scoop was the first USA contestant to land in the garish UK vs USA themed pad. He informed viewers that he has two Grammys and two MTV awards and his biggest impact in the house may be on the loo.
"I blow up the bathroom," he explained, "I weigh 137 kilos and I eat a lot. There's a chance I may plug up the toilet."
Third to arrive was Natasha Hamilton (32), former member of Atomic Kitten, who has a fear of mushrooms.
"To live with I am a bit of a pain in the arse," she revealed, "If somebody finds me irritating it is a bit crap for them. I am a control freak in the sense that it's my way or the high way."
She also warned future enemies about the "wrath of Tash" and psychopathic tendencies.
Former partner of designer Marc Jacobs, Austin Armacost, arrived next and revealed that his relationship with the designer "ended very abruptly". He's now married to a Brit. He also asked, "Can I have a wank in the house?" but was booed for criticising "s**t" customer service.
Scottish TV reporter and model Gail Porter (44) arrived next and spoke about her alopecia in her VT. She revealed she's a "bit OTT with the cleaning" and will use cleaning to help her deal with the other housemates.
Actor Chris Ellison (64) from shows like Minder and The Bill - probably best known as DI Burnside in the latter.
"I'm nervous because it's totally out of my comfort zone," he said. "Maybe my whole life has been preparation for Big Brother.
Apparently he packed sunglasses that cost only £3.
"The world's most famous porn star" Jenna Jameson stormed down the red, white and blue catwalk next having told viewers there "will be any more porns coming out of moi". She added, "A lot of people take for granted I'm some kind of sex maniac and that's incredibly untrue, well not incredibly untrue."
The crowd chanted "who are you?" to which host Emma Willis replied, "Most men in the world know who Jenna Jameson is, and some women too."
Recently engaged X Factor lovebirds Stevi Ritchie and Chloe Jasmine, who competed in last year's series, entered the house together.
US reality star Farrah Abraham, who featured on MTV's 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom shows, and released a sex tape, was next to represent America.
She described herself as a "businesswoman and entrepreneur". She also revealed she has had a nose job, chin implant, two breast augmentations, and she tried to have a lip implant but it backfired and she "almost passed away".
Emma Willis struggled to interview her prior to her entry to the house as she failed to offer any more than one word answers to her questions.
James Hill (27) of The Apprentice was tenth to land in the CBB house, announcing, "I would descrive myself as confident cute and on the ball." He also revealed he has serious OCD.
On meeting former porn star Jenna he said, "The actual Jenna Jameson? Legend!"
Musician and reality star Tila Tequila said that without her "there would be no Facebook or Instagram" because she was the first "selfie queen".
She says has five personalities including one called Jane who she says she fears as well as one called Owen, a perverted old man. Caroline, meanwhile, is from Oxford and Little Tila is a "very pure version of me".
"I might fall on somebody's face while they're asleep," she said.
Finally, there was a big surprise as Daniel Baldwin, one of the four Baldwin brothers, joined the housemates. He revealed he has done 127 feature films and spoke about his battle with drugs and alcohol.
"I have on reluctance talking about that," he said, "I was never a big drinker. For me, it was cocaine."
His brother Stephen had previously featured on the show. Asked by Willis if he had given him any tips, he laughed, "Why would I take a tip from someone who didn't even make it to the final day!"
