Big Brother

When celebs go on Big Brother, it's safe to say the producers fork out thousands upon thousands to get big names on the show.

But, we're pretty shocked about the amount Stephen Bear is taking home when the show ends. 

With some contestants raking in six-figure sums, Stephen is only getting a measly £12,000.

When Bear's amount was leaked last night, there was outrage on Twitter since Christopher Biggins (he was kicked off the show for causing widespread offence) walked away with £150,000.

However, apparently Bear doesn't seem to mind the difference and is more focused on "long-term success."

Speaking to The Sun, an insider said: "He knew he would be one of the stars of the show and really pushed for a bumper pay cheque but the producers wouldn't budge.

"[Bear] had hoped he would be able to cash in with big bucks magazine deals with his girlfriend after leaving the house, having split with his manager and signed to the same management team as Lillie to make it happen.

"But now that he has cheated on her with Chloe Khan he will have to work hard to build the relationship back up again."

Ah Bear, you screwed yourself up big time.


With Big Brother well and truly making its presence known over the last month, some of its ex-cast members are announcing good news of their own.

Louise Cliffe from series 12 and Stu Pilkington from series nine have announced that they’re expecting their first child together.

After many years of friendship, the pair are excited to be starting their family together.

“We’re over the moon to announce that we’re having a baby.

“After being best friends for years then finally getting together, we’re delighted to now become a little family,” the pair told the Daily Mail.

After making it to the final in 2011, Louise spent years working as a model and now plans to turn her hand to blogging as she documents her pregnancy with other expectant mums.

Stu has spent his time sharing his expertise in wellbeing and fitness since his stint on the reality show in 2008.

At twelve weeks pregnant, Louise is due in early 2017 and cannot wait for that the year has in store.

“How exciting to go into 2017 knowing in advance it’s definitely going to be the best year of our lives – we feel so blessed.”

If we know her from Geordie Shore, then we know she's a bit of a wild child, yet we didn't think she's do this.

Marnie Simpson is currently in the Big Brother house and gave viewers a little display on last night's episode.

The 24-year-old went totally starkers in the latest edition of the Channel 5 series (which was left uncensored) as she made her way from the shower last night.

But she wasn't alone in the shower, either. Marnie's housemate Lewis Bloor joined her… so we'll let you guess what came up next.

When she made her way to Diary Room, the reality star said: "I just had the most romantic shower in my life! I would never do anything more than shower with him and kiss him.

"I’ve never had a boy treat me how he treats me! I feel so lucky. He is just perfect."

She then declared: "I never want to leave this house!"



In a shock turn of events, Alex Cannon is a dad!

The Celebrity Big Brother contestant welcomed a baby into the world just before he entered the house, and kept it a secret throughout the whole series.

It is thought that Alex told some of his housemates in private and his former flame Vicky Pattison reportedly also knows about the baby.

A source told The Sun: "Alex wanted to keep his family life private, which is why he didn't go public about being a dad on the show.

"He told a few housemates in private but it wasn't picked up by viewers as he was talking in code.

"He wants to be a great dad and has a good relationship with the baby's mum."

Alex's rep confirmed the news, but didn't want to comment any further.


Lateysha Grace is certainly no shrinking violet. but even she had to admit that her appearance on last night's Bit on the Side was one of the more mortifying of her television career.

The Valleys star, who recently made her way into the Big Brother house before being evicted in recent days, appeared alongside Rylan Clark on the spin-off show, and decided to give him a quick lesson in twerking,

Readying herself to perform Miley's favourite move, Lateysha – rocking a skin-tight strapless dress – turned her back to the camera, and went for it.

In a moment which has everyone in SHEmazing! HQ cringing all over themselves this morning, Lateysha fell victim to a wardrobe malfunction of the highest order, and ended up accidentally mooning the viewing public.

Latesyha did what any self-respecting woman would do in that situation – grabbed her arse, shrieked and threw herself backwards onto the couch.

Ladies, prepare yourselves for this one…




With Stephanie Davis revealing her baby bump for the first time during an emotional interview with OK! magazine this week, it looks like Jeremy McConnell is starting to feel the pressure.

Having admitted that her ex-boyfriend's attitude towards her and their relationship left her feeling suicidal, Stephanie definitely didn't hold back when reflecting on the last seven months of this year.

And it looks like the publicity surrounding Stephanie's exclusive interview has lit a fire under the Dubliner who took to social media today to address the issue.

Reiterating his perspective on the situation which kept Big Brother viewers gripped for weeks, Jeremy wrote: "Everything will be dealt with accordingly and mature, but a baby doesn't fix a toxic relationship. End of discussion."

But if Jeremy was looking for support, he was sorely disappointed as irate Twitter users wasted no time calling him out on the rumours which circulated during his time with Stephanie.

"U hit the nail on the dead there. He made the relationship toxic sleeping around," wrote one while another added "Being mature would be having a conversation with each other not over Twitter."

"Shame it's taken her to go through hell and expose her bump to make you care!!" slammed another. "Not too late though love."

With both parties appearing to only communicate with each other through social media, we can't see this situation being resolved any time soon.



Love her or loathe her, there’s no denying that Stephanie Davis has had a fairly rough 2016.

After being publicly derided for cheating on her partner, Sam Reece, with Jeremy McConnell while in the Big Brother house, the former Hollyoaks star became public enemy number one at the beginning of the year.

However, things started to look up for the aspiring singer when her relationship with Dubliner Jeremy appeared to flourish outside the house, before it all went downhill in the glare of the media spotlight.

After more ups and downs than a seesaw, the couple finally called time on their relationship just a few weeks before Stephanie revealed she was pregnant with Jeremy’s child.

While the 23-year-old indeed used social media as a platform to give her side of the story, this decision left her vulnerable to online trolls who poured scorn on her posts and even questioned the validity of her pregnancy claims.

Speaking to OK! magazine, Stephanie confessed that her ex-boyfriend’s attitude in the aftermath of their split left her at her lowest ebb.

"I wouldn’t be alive now if it wasn’t for this baby,’ she revealed during the interview. "Not only was I heartbroken about our split but I was pregnant and all by myself.”

“Then he was throwing all sorts of accusations at me, both privately and on social media, and I couldn’t handle it,” she added.

Exceptionally close to her family, Stephanie revealed that she confided in her parents, saying: ‘I told my parents that I didn’t want to be here anymore and they were so worried that I was going to do something stupid."

"It’s been the worst time of my life – I was suicidal but it gave me something to live for," she added.

Proving that she’s picked herself up after the public fall-out, Stephanie says she's now focused solely on her future, insisting: “I feel like a strong independent woman, I’m going to be the best mum ever.”


After just 11 days in the Big Brother house, Marco Pierre White Jr has been evicted.

As he left the house he was met with a thundering amount of boos from the public.

He absolutely shocked viewers with his sexual antics with Laura Carter – so we're not really surprised people voted him out.

When footage of him was played back, he was visibly stunned at himself, and then saddened to hear that his finacé Kim, never showed up to see him.

He told presenter Emma Willis: "I can’t believe it. I was surprised. I was ready to go, and now I'm ready to move on with the rest of my life. I don’t take it personally."



Controversial Big Brother housemate Marco Pierre White Jnr has been charged with driving while high on cocaine.

The 21-year-old model, and son of the celebrity chef, faces being evicted from the reality TV show this evening.

His encounters with Laura Carter have already raised serious eyebrows this week – not least as he is currently engaged to fashion designer, Kim Melville-Smith.

According to The Sun, he now faces having to attend a hearing at a court in London next week.

Mail Online reports that Marco Pierre was stopped by police in Hammersmith, west London, on 20 April with more than 200 microgrammes of cocaine in his blood while driving a grey BMW X5.


Since Andrew Tate was removed from the Big Brother house, he has now hit out at the show, claiming his removal is a "conspiracy."

The kickboxer had to pack up his bags and leave after producers were shown a video of him hitting his ex-girlfriend with a belt surfaced – something he says was just fun.

After his removal, he took to Twitter to retweet messages of support sent by fans, but then turned and said BB is conspiring against him.

"It's a conspiracy! Everyone can see it was us having a laugh! What's the real story here???" he wrote.

"They edited a video of me to make me look bad when I'm not. They're afraid of my MASTERPLAN. Simple," he added in another tweet.



It has only just started, yet the latest series of Big Brother has already been a rollercoaster.

Between two housemates leaving, extremely inappropriate behaviour from Marco and Laura, and many revelations about the past lives of the contestants, BB bosses are having a 'crisis talk' today about the future of the latest series of the reality show.

According to The Mirror, the producers of the show have a lot of choices to make, which might include putting new housemates into the mix, creating a new twist, or it has been rumoured, that they might pull the show completely.

Betting agent, William Hill are currently offering 9/4 that the show will be totally scrapped in 2017 – the shortest odds BB has seen since moving to Channel 5.

“Viewing figures are dropping, numbers of complaints are rising and it would appear that BB is running out of ideas,” said Joe Crilly, spokesman for William Hill.

Following the antics of Marco Pierre White and Laura Carter, nearly 300 complaints were made to the show.

Can you see it lasting?



When Gogglebox first came on the scene, it's safe to say that there were many snide remarks of, 'you're going to watch people watching telly?!' but alas, it turned out to be one of the most loved shows on TV.

And, we mostly love it so much because the families and couples are all hilarious – but like always, we have our favourites.

Well, one of our favourite couples might LEAVE the show pretty soon so they can appear on another. *Sobs*.

Stephen Webb and Chris Steed are set to depart from Gogglebox so they can go on Celebrity Big Brother.

A source told The Sun that the CBB bosses are really interested in the duo and would be happy to pay them up to £500,000..

"Everyone’s really excited at the prospect because they are so dynamic and they already know they make great TV. They're fan favourites and their dry humour is bound to be hilarious in the house."
