Celebrity Big Brother: at last it’s back (launch night photos)

by | 16th, August 2012

CHANNEL 4’s decision to get rid of Celebrity Big Brother seems ludicrous. Last night, C4 broadcast Superscrimpers: Waste Not, Want Not, a programme seen by 1.19m people. This was followed by 24 Hours in A&E (2.05m) and a truly pisspoor show called Sex Story: Fifty Shades of Grey (968k). Over on Five, the Big Brother launch was seen by 2.6m. Although 3.5 million saw the launch show last year, the figure are still decent. For all its up and downs, CBB is one of the best reality television shows ever.

It’s the show that gave us:

Jackie Stallone’s face encountering her former daughter-in-law Brigette Nielson- a face she’s recently divorced
John McCririck picking his nose (breaking one of TV’s last great taboos)
George Galloway being a cat and lapping ‘milk’ from Rula Lenska’s hand
Ulrika Jonsson and ‘mini me’ Verne Troyer singing Lionel Richie and Diana Ross’s Endless Love
Pete Burns showcasing his gorilla coat
Shilpa Shetty telling Jade Goody: “You know what your claim to fame is? This. Good for you.”
Les Dennis insisting to the world that his marriage to Amanda Holden was rosy (they split and divorced soon after)
