Celebrity Big Brother returned to our screens and gave us hours of entertainment watching celebrities party, bicker and dress up. We had rappers, movie stars and twins all living under one roof roller-coasting from complete boredom to high tension screaming matches. With Denise Welch taking the crown we will have to wait a few months before the regular Joe’s get there chance to sit in the iconic chair.
Memorable tasks from the series include the 60 second do whatever Big Brother says, staged arguments, shredding each others letters from home and one of our favourites the Fairytale task.
In the fairytale task were all assigned a character from different storybooks and challenged to complete some tasks in a bid to increase there shopping budget. Karissa (one of the twins) was charged with handing out roles and gave her sister Kristina the role of Beauty, Nicola the Big Bad Wolf from Little Red Riding Hood played by Natalie Cassidy,and Georgia Salpa was given Rapunzil. Andrew Stone was assigned the Beaankie, Kirk and Romeo. Natasha, Denise and Michael Madson were assigned Pinocchio, Geppetto and the Three Bears.
With the house all decorated and the guests all in costume tasks were handed out with £100 being removed from their shopping budget for every fail. If all four challenges were completed correctly a luxury shopping budget of £600 would be won.
The three little pigs had to protect their house of straw from a huge wind creating fan as a random wolf ran and operated the controls. Barely keeping their pig ears and goggles on they managed to protect their home with gusto.

Rapunzel is saved by the Prince
Gareth playing the handsome Prince was instructed to save Irish Georgia by climbing a rotating ladder up to the top of the tower without falling into the dirty swamp below. Georgia then had to recite aloud a memorised phrase. They completed the task, even with Gareth going upside down at one point, in under 5 minutes.
Goldilocks and the Three Bears
Goldilocks and Three Bears (Karissa and Denise) were give the eating task. Unfortunately it wasn’t nice warm syrup porridge in three bowls. Instead they were given cow urine, spicy porridge and possibly the worst, fishy porridge. While Denise made an excellent effort and finished off one of her bowls quickly, Karissa wimped out and was unable to stomach it – task failed.
Pinocchio’s Truth or Lie
Madson and Natasha had to distinguish between true and false statements, and this was given a great CBB spin. The devious Big Brother asked emotion stirring questions such as who said “Forget looks, she’s got nothing about her” , was it Romeo or Nicola. Madson immediately said Romeo would never say something like that and watching in the living room Nicola had to admit her statement, although trying to wash it down saying she wasn’t being cruel. The task stirred up lots of tension and conversation especially in the garden. Nicola complained to Big Brother that she was “hurt” and that most of the statements were about her, although she stood by her comments saying Georgia had made no effort to get to know her.
Hot or Not?
The Beast, played by Andrew had an excellent task where he had to rate his looks against the fellow housemates. At the same time the Beauty rated him and if their answers matched more than five times the task would be won. Andrew admitted being less attractive than Georgia but put himself above Denise. Unfortunately they didn’t make five correct matches and after returning to the lounge Andrew was met with fire from the twins accusing him of believing he was better looking than everyone.
With 3 fails the housemates only got to spend £300 on their shopping for the week.
