Celebrity Big Brother line-up revealed

It seems the press reports about who’ll be entering the Big Brother house this year were mostly right as Frankie Cocozza, Denise Welch (right) and Kirk Norcross all entered the house.

For then most part though it was the usual suspects who were revealed as this year’s Celebrity Big Brother housemates. Former EastEnders actress Natalie Cassidy, who played Sonia Jackson/Fowler in the BBC One soap, was the first to ‘celebrity’ to enter the house. As widely reported axed X Factor contestant Frankie Cocozza is part of this year’s line-up.

Hollywood actor Michael Madsen, as widely reported, is also part of the line-up. One surprise though was ex Rugby player, and one of the few openly gay sportsmen, Gareth Thomas. Natasha Giggs, who made headlines with reports of her affair with Ryan Giggs, is another housemate this year. There may very well be fireworks though between Giggs and fellow housemate Nicola McLean; the two clashed earlier this week before even entering the house.

Playboy twins Kristina and Karissa Shannon, who were also reported by the press as being part of the line-up, are also in the house. Pineapple Dance’s Andrew Stone, model Georgia Salpa and singer Romeo Dunn also entered the role last night. Kirk Norcross, from ITV2‘s The Only Way is Essex, and Denise Welch were also revealed as part of this year’s Celebrity line-up.
