CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER HousemateS 2015
Launched in 2001 as part of Comic Relief, the notion of Celebrities being exposed in the Big Brother house was an attractive one, undelined by making money for a worthy cause. The first show was won by Jack Dee and the format looked like a winner.
The subsequent celebrities drawn to experience the Elstree madness seemed more interested in boosting their flagging careers than partaking in a social experiment. The irony of this was illustrated in 2006 when a non celebrity Chantelle Houghton not only convinced her fellow celebrities that she was a successful singer but then went on to win the show.
Here are a list of the housemates who have entered the house for the 16th series of Celebrity Big Brother.
