C5 boss doesn't know Celeb BB stars

Channel 5 boss Ben Frow has admitted he does not know who "half" of the contestants in the latest series of Celebrity Big Brother are.

The executive also branded former Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan "the least intelligent celebrity I've ever met" despite casting her in a new reality show.

The actress is one of the names signed up to a new show called Celebrity Super Spa where the contestants have to give facials and colonic irrigations to members of the public.

Mr Frow said: "It has Helen Flanagan in it, who is probably the least intelligent celebrity I've ever met."

Shown a clip from the new series of CBB, which launched this week with Ron Atkinson, Louie Spence and Sophie Anderton among the names in the house, Mr Frow said: "I don't know half of them."

He also said he offered former Apprentice star Katie Hopkins one of the places in the house but she turned him down.
