So the thing that basically makes or brakes a Celebrity Big Brother is the celebritys they manage to get on board so lets first take a look at who we have this year and I will give a few quick words about how I initially feel about them. On Day 1, eight female housemates entered the house during the launch and on day 4 they were joined by eight males, so here they are in alphabetical order.
Amanda Barrie is an English actress who is proberbly best known for playing the role of Alma Halliwell in ITV soap opera Coronation Street. She also starred in two Carry On films, Carry On Cabby and Carry On Cleo. Most recently, Amanda appeared in the TV series The Real Marigold Hotel.She had previously been married to a man but later in life she has come out as bisexual and is now married to a woman, this makes her an intresting choice for the house because she has had a long career, and a life both full of experiance and of change. So far she seems to have held herself rather well in my oppinion
Andrew Brady is a British reality television personality best known for competing on the thirteenth series of The Apprentice in 2017.He didnt do too bad on the apprentace but he did come across as a bit of a piss head, but in all fairness he has seemed to be quiet a decent person on here.
Ann Widdecombe is a former Conservative politician and author. Ann became most known for expressing views opposing abortion, voting for the reinstatement of the death penalty and opposing same-sex marriage. Since retiring, Ann appeared on the eighth series of Strictly Come Dancing. If anything she is an out spoken person not affraid to give an oppinion regardless of if it is a popular one or not. So far she has seemed to find the house a rather tiring afair, it doesnt seem like she enjoys being surrounded by so many people.
Ashley James is a British reality television personality known for starring as a cast member on the E4 reality series Made in Chelsea during the fourth and fifth series. Since then, she began concentrating on her music career as a DJ.I actually had to look up who she was when she enterd the house and in all honesty so far she is not really making any impact on my mind at all, she is tottally forgetable, at times it seems like she just litterally bleeds into the wall and ceases to exist, this might actually see her do quite well though as although at present shes not likly to stand out for praise nor will she stand out as someone people are desperate to be rid of.
Daniel O'Reilly, known better by his stage name Dapper Laughs is a British stand-up comedian and media personality. In 2014, he hosted his own ITV dating show Dapper Laughs: On the Pull, but was axed after one series following a rape joke controversy. I instantly wanted to hate him the second he walked in, I had found Dapper Laughs about as funny as being kicked in the balls and he well he just has a smug look about him a bit like a particularly salty bull dog who has just realised he can lick his own balls. Then I saw him have a conversation where he seemed to show genuine remorse but this was soon followed up by a trip to the diary room which saw him looking like the biggest laddish bellend possible, at this point at least he seems like a good reason for militant feminists to want to kill all males if I have ever seen one.
Elgin Baylor Lumpkin, known better by his stage name Ginuwine is an American singer, songwriter and actor who is most known for releasing a number of multi-platinum and platinum-selling albums and singles in the 1990s and 2000s. As well as singing, he has starred in films such as Juwanna Mann and television series such as Martial Law (an Awesome show staring a hero of mine Samo Hung). At first I was a little shocked by the fact he has like 9 kids with 5 diffrent women, I guess as open minded as I like to think I am even I can sometimes make snap judgements. So far I dont think he has.
India Willoughby is an English journalist and newsreader, who is most known for becoming Britain's first transgender television newsreader. She began her career on ITV in 2000. At first I kind of thought she was brave, I mean any situation where you are unique and you enter it you can kind of find yourself as being a representative for a whole group of people, if you do something good it helps everyone like you, if you make a cock up then it can reflect poorly on a whole group of people. Now though well I find myself liking her less and less. Amanda accidentally referd to her as a he, which seemed like a slip of the tongue to me and yes I can see her getting annoyed with it, she is well within her rights to say how it makes her feel but with repeatidly not accepting Amanda's appologies followed by her throwing a mardy because of the fact Ginuwine said he wouldnt date a trans person, I dont know it just feels like she is looking for reasons to throw a strop and only sees her own views as being important.
Jess Impiazzi is a British reality television personality and glamour model, best known as a cast member in the MTV reality series, Ex on the Beach during the second series in 2015 before later returning for the fifth "All star" series in 2016. Prior to this, she appeared on The Only Way Is Essex in 2012 as a "Sugar Hut Honey". She is another person I basically know absolutly nothing about but she does seem to be holding herself generally quiet well and so far doesnt seem like a bad person at all.
John Barnes is a Jamaican-born British former footballer, rapper and manager. He is best known for his time at Watford and Liverpool, as well as playing for the England national team in the 1980s and 1990s. In the run-up to England's 1990 FIFA World Cup campaign, he recorded a rap for the official team song, New Order's "World in Motion" which reached number one in the UK Singles Chart. Since retiring from football, he became a commentator and pundit for ESPN and SuperSport. I sort of recognised him when he walked in but I am not much in to football I think if he hadnt played for England I wouldnt have even known him that much. So far he seems like a gentleman and a decent bloke, he hasnt been particularly exciting but its still early days.
Jonny Mitchell is a British business director and reality television personality best known for being a cast member in the third series of ITV2 dating reality show Love Island in 2017. So far he has seemed like a bit of a dick but then also a little bit like he has had a personality transplant with a mouldy cabbage.
Maggie Oliver is an English former Detective Constable in the Greater Manchester Police best known for exposing the Rochdale child sex abuse ring. Maggie quit the force after serving 16 years to expose the wrong doings of senior officers within the police force.So far I think she is the star of the house, maybe its because shes not a real star star, shes simply a Woman who has done what she felt was right even if it wasnt easy and was to her own detrement. I have the upmost respect for her and so far she seems to have been not only a very pleasent person but also a kind of peacemaker. At the moment she is my favourate to win.
Malika Haqq is an American reality television personality and actress who is best known for her friendship with Khloe Kardashian as well as appearing in her reality shows such as Keeping Up with the Kardashians. In 2017, Malika took part in dating show Famously Single. As an actress she has appeared in films such as Sky High and ATL. I was expecting her to be a shallow air head who was self obbsessed and so far shes actually been a very nice person who seems to have been trying to avoid drama and actually seems quiet down to earth.Rachel Johnson is a British editor, journalist, television presenter, and author. She is also the sister of Boris Johnson. I cant help but think they got her in because of how well her father did in Im A celebrity get me out of here. So far I have very mixed feelings about her. She can seem nice and like the voice of reason at times but then I also sometimes feel that maybe she is playing the game, playing all sides, saying what she thinks needs to be said.
Shane Gilberto Jenek, known better by his stage name Courtney Act is an Australian drag queen and reality television personality best known for being a finalist in the sixth season of RuPaul's Drag Race. As well as this, Courtney has appeared on Australian Idol and most recently MTV's Single AF in 2017. So far I have found him/her to be a decent forward thinking person. Most of what I have seen has shown her as Courtney, but she has been very open about explaining to people how he/she sees him/her self and doesnt seem to make a big deal of people getting it wrong. I think India needs to pull the stick out of her ass and look at how Courtney holds herself. I know that a lot of people will speak ill of him/her but she/he is tottally cool in my books. One of my top 5 contestants this year.
Shane Lynch is an Irish singer-songwriter best known as a member of boy band Boyzone. With the band, they had a total of 6 number ones in the UK Singles Chart including "No Matter What". Shane began his acting career, appearing in Sky One's Dream Team, and has since starred in pantomime. Shane has also took part in reality televsion shows such as The Games and Love Island.He has actually seemed to be a really kind straight talking bloke. I gained a lot of respect for him in the way he has carried himself and tried to be open and friendly to others. He has so far showed that he is very open minded and gentlemanly in his interactions with others. Also one of my top 5 contestants this year.
Wayne Sleep is a British dancer, choreographer and actor. He has also taken part in Celebrity MasterChef, the second series of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!, and was a judge on ITV talent show Stepping Out. As an actor, Wayne has had roles in films such as The First Great Train Robbery and Elizabeth.Seems to have a great sense of humour and to not take things to serious while also respecting other people. So far I like him.
Well thats everyone accounted for I guess time will tell how they all get on and who in the end is the winner of celebrity big brother 2018.
