Everything that happened on Celebrity Big Brother 2017 launch from Calum Best and his mum’s reunion, to Stacy Francis’ tears and bombshell interviews

CELEBRITY Big Brother kicked off with X-rated jokes, a harsh task, tears and even a mini tantrum tonight, as reality stars, musicians and actors joined forces.

The old stars were forced to “edit out” a contestant

The All Star contestants – which also included the likes of former Strictly Come Dancing professional James Jordan, model Jasmine Waltz and reality star Austin Armacost – were tasked with choosing who should be “edited out” of the show.

They settled on Stacy Francis, banishing her out into the garden as the others enjoyed the launch party, but it left poor Stacy in floods of tears.

Stacy was also told to wear a beige hoodie and tracksuit set and that she would be missing out on any of the big events.

And Calum got a huge shock when he and his fellow All Star celebrities joined the New Stars camp to see his mother Angie standing there.

Spencer then joked: “Feel free to boo, I haven’t had any boos in three years.”

Heidi added: “You thought we played the game well last time,” before Spencer added: “But you’ve not seen anything yet.”

“I was involved in this ridiculous love triangle. It ruined my entire existence in the house. This time you get to watch me make the same mistakes over again I’m sure.

“If there’s hot guys, that’s a challenge… You know that I’m weak.”

She added: “I’m not a shy person, show me your tits.”

Ray J pulled a moody pose


Ray J joked he needed a British passport

Ray J joked: “You might also know me for my d***.

He added in his opening VT: “You might know my cousin Snoop Dog. I’m a grown man and a grown boss.

“People know about the sex tape with Kim Kardashian, order it, get me some money. People are stick j***ing off over that sex tape.”

As Emma said: “I love how British you’re looking”, Ray J joked: “I need a passport.”

Meanwhile, Bianca said: “I’m feisty and opinionated.”

She added: “If there’s someone in there I find attractive, I will see what happens. I’ve kissed on camera and I would again.”

Bianca went on: “I’m ready to go in there and take Big Brother by the balls.”

Comparing herself to a “mermaid”, Bianca met co-star Ray J with a huge smile, before announcing he sang her favourite hit song.

And Austin Armacost confessed he was looking for love in the house after just breaking up with his fiancé of nine years. And he wasn’t too impressed about joining Spencer and Heidi in the house as he dubbed them “nightmare housemates” and “plastic”.

Loose Women star Coleen Nolan soon arrived to a rouse of applause from the crowds gathered outside the Big Brother house as did actor James Cosmo.

Coleen announced: “I’m now a very Loose Woman,” before adding: “If my gut instinct tells me someone’s fake, I’ll speak up.”

She concluded: “This is going to be a house from hell.”

“I did have a lot of lows in there, and a lot I still haven’t live out.

“I went through a stage when I was stupid spending stupid amounts of money. I bought my ex wife a white Bentley. That was an expensive day.

“I think people have a massively wrong perception of me. I;’d be scared about having a row with someone because I don’t take any s***.”
