Christopher Biggins is victim of cruel joke as Celebrity Big Brother premieres
Christopher Biggins was chosen as the "secret boss" of the Celebrity Big Brother house during the launch on Thursday night (28Jul16), but was unaware the joke is actually on him.
Christopher Biggins was voted the "secret boss" of the Celebrity Big Brother house during the launch on Thursday night (28Jul16).
The pantomime king was just one of 15 famous faces to enter the compound, and is already the favourite to win the competition. After all the contestants were safely inside the house, the public were given the chance to vote for who they would like to see in charge, with Christopher emerging victorious. The 67-year-old was then informed of the news as the housemates were thrown a silent disco, and pretended to carry on dancing as he received the message from Big Brother. He was told that he would be in charge of nominations and will also be immune from eviction himself.
"In a number of days you will make a number of important decisions," Big Brother told Christopher. "You will be able to control nominations... remember this is our little secret."
In a cruel twist, the remainder of the housemates were then told that the joke's on Christopher as it is them who will decide who is immune from eviction.
"He must never find out," Big Brother told the rest of the housemates. "Wind him up and get nominated to get immunity yourselves."
This year's series looks set to be one of the most exciting to date, given the wide variety of housemates who will be entertaining viewers over the next few weeks.
Alongside Christopher, former model Sam Fox, Loose Women's Saira Khan, Frankie Grande, ex EastEnders star Ricky Norwood, Mob Wives star Renee Graziano, Geordie Shore babe Marnie Simpson, U.S. reality star Aubrey O'Day, Ex on the Beach troublemaker Stephen Bear, former X Factor contestants Katie Waissel and Chloe 'Mafia' Khan, TOWIE's Lewis Bloor, Anthea Turner's ex-husband Grant Bovey, Storage Hunters' Heavy D, and TV host James Whale will all be vying for victory.
