Celebrity Big Brother Housemates Revealed
There's a Situation in the CBB house as Jersey Shore star is among celebs...
Model Jasmine Lennard, Loose Women presenter Coleen Nolan, pop star-turned-actor Martin Kemp, former EastEnders star Cheryl Fergison, journalist Samantha Brick, Olympic judo athlete Ashley McKenzie, reality TV personality Danica Thrall and Italian aristocrat Prince Lorenzo Borghese complete the line-up.
The Only Way Is Essex's Lauren Goodger was conspicuous by her absence, as was Duane "Dog The Bounty Hunter" Chapman, who reportedly couldn't get a visa thanks to a murder conviction dating from the 1970s.
As is now traditional in Celebrity Big Brother, secret tasks were given to certain housemates right away - to spice the opening night up a bit.
Cheryl and Julie were instructed to stage a pretend row over an imaginary man-feud, culminating in Julie chucking her drink at Cheryl.
The results were impressive, but the smirk on Julian Clary's face suggested that at least one housemate had cottoned on.
