The first edited episode of Celeb Big Bro is specially made for those folk who refused to sit at home, and watch other people enter another house on launch night. Filled with over produced music and grand cuts; the run through of everyone entering the house is something I always praise the fast forward feature for.
Steve Kemp; or Ross Kemp to the fruitely pyjama clad Julian Clary, hit the nail on the head last night, by saying "There's a little too much eye contact at the moment, as everyone has their party faces on." My party face includes a glint in the ey, possibly due to the loose false eyelash tickling my brow, and a puzzled look as I compare my outfit to every other female in the room; but I'm pretty sure King Kemp wasn't talking about this with his stellar point. Speaking of parties; Big Bro rewarded Bassett Hound in drag, aka Julie, and 'You'll always be Hev to us and everyone else' Cheryl, for their grand soap performance earlier in the night with a soap themed party, which surely only confused The Situation's situation even more.
The producers are very clever in terms of creating potential romance between the celebs, and I can already see sparks a flying between Prince Lorenzo and Danica, oh and Jasmine too; or was that just fear in his eyes as she discussed her wild child ways, but does anyone actually know the wildest thing she's done? But I also spot a little loving between The Situation and Danica; could they be 'smooshing' (Jersey Shore term for getting ones leg over) before the three weeks of mayhem are over?
A personal favourite Big Brother ritual of mine comes when the celebs begin to mingle, which soon turns in to clics being formed, and then follows the bitching. This was apparent last night, as poor little topless model Rhian spoke of her pain after being outed as the girl who Vernon Kaye got his sleaze on with. Now, I did feel for the girl when she revealed the horror of being bottled and abused in the street, but surely she could read the tone of his texts and understand that this was a married man very much in the public eye, and she claims to be an intelligent model, but we have yet to see this come alive. But I better not say much more, or I'll be in Jasmine's hit list just below Samantha Brick.
Another housemate flagging up on my radar is MC Harvey, who tries too hard to be the Mr Nice Guy of the house, but this bloke could buy me a kitten, donate all his money to charity and pledge never to rap again; I would still place him down in the sewers with the other rats. Get it Harvey? Got it. Good.
My predictions for this series include a kiss or two between Danica and Prince Lorenzo, a proper barney between Julie and Jasmine, Coleen having a Vanessa Feltz style breakdown and wanting to go home, Martin Kemp becoming the Dad of the group, The Situation flashing his abs more times than I can count and Cheryl reaching breaking point as one celeb too many calls her Heather.
