Celebrity Big Brother 2024 line-up in full

Celebrity Big Brother 2024 is in full swing, with Louis Walsh and Love Island star Ekin-Su among the housemates.

The first housemate to enter the show was Sharon Osbourne, but it was revealed by hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best that the former X Factor judge would not be an official housemate; instead, Osbourne has been a “celebrity lodger” and, alongside housemate Louis Walsh, started her time on the show having to nominate three housemates for eviction.

Strictly pro Nikita Kuzmin, 26, who was partnered with Layton Williams in the 2023 series of the show, has swapped the ballroom for the Big Brother house, alongside Love Island 2022 winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, who recently appeared on the US version of The Traitors.

Reality TV star David Potts, 30, who is best known for appearing in Ibiza Weekender, actor Bradley Riches, 24, who appeared in Netflix’s hit series Heartstopper, and TV presenter ZeZe Mills, 34, have also entered the house.

Other housemates include 38-year-old Broadway star Marisha Wallace, who has appeared in Dreamgirls, Waitress and Guys & Dolls), Coronation Street ‘s Craig Tinker actor Colson Smith, 25, Real Housewives of Cheshire favourite Lauren Simon, 46 and TV personality Levi “Reggae Sauce” Roots, 65.

Rounding out the crop of housemates were former This Morning host Fern Britton, 66, and the Princess of Wales’s uncle Gary Goldsmith, 58, who is the brother of Kate’s mother Carole. He became the first evictee on Friday 8 March.

When asked by Odudu whether Middleton would be watching, Goldsmith said: “Is she is, it’ll be from behind the sofa.”

Goldsmith’s appearance on the reality series was said to have upset his sister Carole and her husband Michael.

The return of the reality show marks its first Celebrity edition in six years, and its first run since ITV rebooted the series, with presenters AJ Odudu and Will Best on hosting duties.

Celebrity Big Brother continues on ITV1 and ITVX nightly.
