Celebrity Big Brother is currently underway on ITV1, and it’s been nothing short of drama since it returned to our screens on Monday, March 4.

What’s the scoop on Celebrity Big Brother 2024 season?

For the unversed,  the show is a reality TV series where celebrities live together in a house equipped with cameras and microphones, capturing their every move 24 hours a day. The contestants, known as housemates, are isolated from the outside world and are voted out of the house by the public, with the last remaining housemate winning a cash prize for charity or themselves. The show features a mix of tasks, challenges, and interpersonal dynamics as the celebrities navigate living together under constant surveillance. It has various international versions, each with its own local twists and celebrity casts.

The latest season of Celebrity Big Brother 2024 features a diverse cast including Sharon Osbourne as a “Celebrity Lodger” and contestants like Bradley Riches, Colson Smith, David Potts, Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, Fern Britton, Levi Roots, Louis Walsh, Marisha Wallace, Nikita Kuzmin, Zeze Millz, Lauren Simon, and Gary Goldsmith. This season’s cast encompasses a wide range of celebrities from actors and reality TV stars to musicians, TV presenters, and even one renowned businessman.

In a turn towards the scandalous, Louis Walsh was recently under fire for his comments about Irish pop duo, Jedward, whom he mentored on the 2009 show, The X Factor. The drama began when actor Colson Smith asked Walsh what Jedward were like. “They were vile… I done five million quid with them, I swear on my mother’s life,” he replied. “They were vile, they were novelty, they were great for the show.” The ITV show’s live audience could be heard booing and chanting “Get Louis out” before the results of Tuesday’s eviction vote were announced. While the duo spoke out on X, labelling the comments as “spiteful and disrespectful”, it wasn’t the end of Walsh’s name-calling.

Sharon Osbourne and Walsh, both former judges on The X Factor, took their time on the show to air their dirty laundry. In one of the first episodes, they had a conversation about their co-star Simon Cowell. “He would always say ‘change, change, change’. You’re the one that needs changing, mate,” Osbourne said. “Someone who dresses the same for three decades, they don’t see that it’s not right. No one’s gonna tell him, but everything, the same, the same, the same.” Walsh, nodding along, said he no longer speaks to Cowell: “I haven’t talked to him at all, nothing. Zero.”

Other targets of their televised gossip sessions included presenter James Corden, Vogue magazine’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, and TV host Ellen DeGeneres.
