They’ve barely finished the last series of Big Brother – but the celebrities were already lined up for a fresh slice of Channel 5 reality TV on Tuesday night.
Girls Aloud’s Sarah Harding, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Brandi Glanville and Mob Wives beauty Marissa Jade led the eye-popping arrivals for the exciting 20th season, which promised fireworks from the off.
Sarah kicked off the evening with a swipe at ex-bandmate Cheryl, while Brandi dropped the c-bomb within minutes of her arrival, wasting no time in referencing her famous feud with singer LeAnn Rimes, who stole her husband Eddie Cibrian.

Eastenders’ Shaun Williamson, most famously known for his role as Barry on Eastenders, was the first to enter and couldn’t contain his excitement as he kicked off the star-studded arrivals in a bid to win the £50,000 prize money for the charity of his choice
Eastenders‘ Shaun Williamson, most famously known for his role as Barry on Eastenders, was the first to enter and couldn’t contain his excitement as he kicked off the star-studded arrivals in a bid to win the £50,000 prize money for the charity of his choice.
He was by far the most popular of the surprise arrivals and quickly his name – or his alter ego Barry’s – was trending on Twitter.
Sarah’s, 35, entrance was bold one, looking super sexy in a plunging blazer and lace bralet, but it was her words that struck a chord with fans at home.
Taking a thinly veiled stab at her ex-bandmates, she quickly said that she’d been in a girlband, which she didn’t like, and did not want to experience more ‘confrontation’ inside the house.
While talking to Emma about ‘not liking attention-seekers’, someone from the audience shouted out ‘we can see your bum’ to which she yelled back: ‘Why do you think I wore this?’
