Three Shortlisted For Celebrity Big Brother Vote
Big Ron, Carol and Courtney chosen by secret panel of housemates...
Ron Atkinson, Courtney Stodden and Carol McGiffin have all been shortlisted to face the public vote in Celebrity Big Brother.
The new series of the reality TV show started last night on Channel 5 - and saw Louie Spence, Lauren Harries and Sophie Anderton squirreled away in a secret room to observe the other housemates.
Each of them was told they must nominate one of the HMs to potentially face the public vote - with Louie going first and plumping for former football manager Ron Atkinson because he didn't think they would have "a huge amount in common".
He said: "I don't know much about football. Well, I know a few [footballers] I fancy, but I don't think that will go down too well with him."
Sophie nominated Courtney Stodden because of her "hysterical high-pitched" laugh.
And Lauren chose Carol McGiffin, accusing her of being miserable and hinting at a past beef.
She said: "We haven't got on together in the past, I don't think we're going to get on in the future."
They will later have to narrow the three down to one between them, who will face the public vote.
