Sharon struck a great deal with Big Brother producers

Not only does she have her own room away from the other housemates, but she gets to lie in for, seemingly, as long as she wants. Whatever you think of her, that’s pretty legendary.

Sharon nominates housemate for eviction

After placing Zeze, David and Gary in danger of being nominated on night one, Sharon was told by Big Brother to make her pick after interviewing each three.

She chooses Kate Middleton’s uncle, Gary Goldsmith, stating: “I don’t hin he’s that comfortable here – I think he’s awkward with himself being here, too. It’s very tough for him – I think he’s brave to have come in here. I somehow don’t think this is the place for him. He’s just the oddball out from everyone that’s in here.”

Celebrity Big Brother viewers call out Louis Walsh for ‘incredibly rude’ comment

Celebrity Big Brother viewers are predicting Louis Walsh will be the “villain” of this year’s series after a series of “rude” comments.

The music manager, whose arrival in the house has led to some controversy, is known by many as a judge on ITV talent show The X Factor. Joining him on the reality series are stars including Fern Britton, Kate Middleton’s uncle Gary Goldsmith and his one-time X Factor co-star Sharon Osbourne.

After entering the house, he was sent into a secret lair with Osbourne, who was tasked with “judging” which three housemates gave the worst first impressions.

Here, Walsh and Obsourne could be seen commenting on each new arrival, with Walsh in particular paying attention to people’s appearance. At one stage, he wondered if Real Housewives of Cheshire star Lauren Simon “has had a bit of work”, and said that “forgetful” Coronation Street actor Colson Smith had “big ears”.

But it’s a moment in Tuesday night’s episode (5 March) that raised eyebrows among viewers. It arrived when Walsh spotted Simon sitting on one of the few double beds in the bedroom.
