9 of the Craziest Moments In CBB History
From our Geordie lasses wetting themselves to 'David's dead!'...
Celebrity Big Brother has been a staple in British households for over a decade and has birthed some of the most memorable, shocking, outrageous, hilarious and jaw-dropping reality TV moments during that time
To celebrate its glorious return, we are revisiting some of our all-time favourite moments...
But first, hit play on the video to remind yourself of Chloe Ferry's most downright shocking Celebrity Big Brother moments...
Marnie Simpson and the Banana
Geordie lass Marnie Simpson did us proud when she showed off her blowjob skills to compare how she performed head compared to her housemates. While discussing the intimate act, she grabbed a banana to demonstrate how she does it before Danity Kane and dumblonde singer Aubrey O’Day got in on the act. There’s nothing like sharing with pals, eh?
Pete Burns and the Police
The iconic Pete Burns entered the Celebrity Big Brother house way back in 2006, wearing what he claimed was a coat made of gorilla skin. Police were called into the house to perform tests on the jacket - seriously - and, while it turned out not to be gorilla skin, it was seized for being made with the skin of another endangered animal, the Colobus monkey.
Oh dear lord, how can we even pinpoint Kim Woodburn’s time in the CBB house with one event? It’s fair to say she didn’t like anyone, especially Nicola “Nicole” McLean, as she had a meltdown and called them all “chicken livered shits” among other amazingly wild names. During her outrageous rant, security entered the house to escort her out for a breather and she was still screaming from the top of the stairs. Incredible scenes.
Sarah Harding and Chad’s 3 Minutes In Heaven
We think the whole nation is in agreement when we say that watching showmance lovers Sarah Harding and Chad Johnson get close in store room cupboard was beyond uncomfortable. We still cringe thinking about it. Never. Again.
Charlotte Crosby Wetting The Bed
The Geordie Shore bunch love themselves some CBB action and Charlotte Crosby was the first to do it. Never one to be shy, the eventual winner of the 20XX season shocked non-Geordie viewers when she wet the bed. I mean, we can’t say we were shocked - what’s the big deal? C’mon! Grow up!
Chloe Khan and Stephen Bear In The Hot Tub
Well, well, well! Stephen Bear and Chloe Khan hit it off when they appeared in the 20XX season together and their sexual tension lead up to one raunchy hot tub session that wasn’t that much nicer to watch than Sarah and Chad.
Gemma Collins’ Claustrophobia
Everything Gemma Collins said or did in CBB is iconic, so much so that a talented DJ made their very own The GC mixtape full of her quotes from the season. One of her most ridiculous moments was undoubtedly when she tried to leave the house (one of the times, anyways) because she thought she saw a ghost in the mirror. “Get that fire exit door, i’m off” and “I’m claustrophobic, Darren!” remain two of the most quotable lines to ever come from inside that house.
Chloe Ferry Stripping For Jedward
Now this was a wild season. Our beloved chicken nugget Chloe Ferry befriended Jedward, obviously, and one night she got a little too... excited, shall we say? Chloe stripped off and rubbed her bum on the John half of Jedward and it was just a tad awkward watching it go down.
Often hailed on social media as the best reality TV moment of all time - and it’s certainly up there - is when Tiffany Pollard thought that fellow housemate David Gest had died in the house. When Angie Bowie confided in the unbelievably hilarious American star after finding out her ex-husband David Bowie had died, Tiffany ran around the house yelling and screaming in horror thinking Angie meant their housemate. “David’s dead!” was immediately one for the history books.
