Series Information
Presenter: Emma Willis
Broadcaster: Channel 5
Winner: Charlotte Crosby

Celebrity Big Brother 12 was the twelfth series of the reality television series Celebrity Big Brother. It launched on 22 August 2013 three days after the fourteenth regular series final in two parts. The series ended after 23 days on 13 September 2013, with Charlotte Crosby voted the winner by the public. It continued to air on Channel 5 as part of a two-year contract with Endemol, which secured the show until 2014. It was the fifth celebrity series to air on Channel 5 and the eighth series of Big Brother to air on the broadcaster overall since they acquired the show.

This was the first celebrity edition to be hosted by Emma Willis. Willis continued to host Big Brother's Bit On The Side alongside Rylan Clark and AJ Odudu.

This series also saw the return of viewers voting to 'Save', a format that was not used in the prior fourteenth regular series.

Pre-seriesEdit

Edit

The official new eye logo for the series was released on 1 August 2013. The new logo design follows the same pattern as for Big Brother 14, but with a new golden theme. The new icon features the doors, drawers and wooden frame of the fourteenth civilian series’ eye – but it has been recoloured in gold and navy blue to give it a VIP feel to tie in with the 'posh' theme of this series. Unlike most Celebrity Big Brother eyes, this logo does not feature the "star" in the centre.

PresentersEdit

On 2 April, Emma Willis was officially announced as the host of Celebrity Big Brother after previous host Brian Dowling was removed. Willis will also present Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side alongside Rylan Clark and AJ Odudu, who replaced Alice Levine and Jamie East from the fourteenth regular series.

SponsorshipEdit

The series sponsor is SuperCasino website and television programme (that airs nightly on Channel 5) SuperCasino.

TeasersEdit

From 16 August 2013, Channel 5 began screening a ten-second trailer celebrating the return of the series. The trailer featured the obligatory voiceover of Marcus Bentley, and showcased the newest Celebrity Big Brother logo.

HouseEdit

Pictures of the House were released on 22 August 2013. The House contained a 'posh' theme, with luxurious fittings in and outside of the Celebrity Big Brother compound. This was in stark contrast to the eco-style house that was in use just three days before in the fourteenth regular series.

HousematesEdit

A total of 13 housemates entered the Big Brother House in this series. On Day 1, the original 13 housemates entered the Big Brother House.

Cult of CelebrityEdit

On launch night, it was revealed that there was a place adjacent to the Diary Room known as 'The Temple.' Later, Lauren, Louie and Sophie were chosen by Big Brother to become the first three cult celebrities who would live in The Temple in secret, away from the rest of the housemates. It was then announced that they would have the power to nominate three housemates of their choice to face the first public vote.

Note:      The cult celebrities, after putting forward their recommendations as to which housemate should be nominated, decided to nominate this housemate to face the first public vote.

Summary Edit

Day 1 Entrances
  • Bruce, Vicky, Courtney, Abz, Danielle, Dustin, Charlotte, Mario, Carol and Ron entered the house.
  • Louie, Lauren and Sophie entered The Temple.
Tasks
  • Shortly after introductions, Big Brother tasked the housemates with picking the two people inside the house that they thought were the most famous; Bruce and Vicky were the two chosen. These two housemates were later told that as they were the two picked they would be awarded with special sleeping arrangements, which turned out to be a double bed located in the middle of the garden.[1]
Twists
  • It was explained that Lauren, Louie and Sophie would become the first three 'cult celebrities.' As cult celebrities, Lauren, Louie and Sophie entered The Temple, a place adjacent to the main house. Inside The Temple, the cult celebrities had the chance to watch the rest of their fellow housemates enter the main house. Lauren, Louie and Sophie were then given the power to decide upon three housemates of their choice to face the first public vote.[1][2]
Day 2 Entrances
  • Lauren, Sophie and Louie entered the house.[3][4]
Tasks
  • The three cult celebrities entered one-by-one into the house for a special party on Day 2. They were not allowed to reveal any information on where they had been staying and that they had been living together elsewhere. The party was used as a ploy for the cult celebrities to reveal who they had chosen to nominate first. The nominee was revealed as the celebrity Louie gave his bottle of champagne to when he entered the party (Ron). Later, Big Brother told the housemates that it was the public who had chosen Ron to become the first nominee and that the public would continue to vote for who they wanted to nominate this week up until the fourth day.[3][4]
Nominations
  • Ron was nominated to face the first eviction by cult celebrities, Lauren, Louie and Sophie.[3]
Punishments
  • As punishment for using inappropriate language, Carol received her first formal warning.[5]
Day 3 Tasks
  • Housemates participated in the task; 'Guess What?'. For this task, housemates had to reveal three stories about themselves to the rest of the group. Once a housemate had revealed their three stories, the rest of the group had to pick what they thought the viewers would select as the 'most interesting'. The more stories they guessed correctly as the 'most interesting', the more prizes the housemates won.[6]
Nominations
  • The cult celebrities nominated Danielle to join Ron in facing the first public vote.[7]
Punishments
  • Ron was issued with a formal warning after using language that Big Brother deemed potentially offensive.[8]
Day 4 Tasks
  • For the task 'Busk Brother', each celebrity had to showcase their talent in the garden. Big Brother provided housemates with a money bag containing three gold coins. Before their respective performances, every celebrity had to place down their money bag in front of them, allowing any of their fellow housemates to place any number of their gold coins inside. Charlotte, as the housemate with the most gold coins in their money bag after everyone had performed, was the winner and won a plate of burger and chips as a reward.[9]
Nominations
  • The cult celebrities nominated Vicky to join Ron and Danielle in facing the first public vote.[10]
Twists
  • The cult celebrities were revealed and the housemates learnt that they, not the public as Big Brother had previously said, had nominated Ron, Danielle and Vicky for eviction.[10]
Day 5 Tasks
  • Housemates began their first weekly shopping task: 'Time is Money.' To pass the task, the celebrities had to accumulate as much 'time' as possible by completing various tasks set for them by Big Brother. Failure to complete said tasks would result in any time earned previous being deducted. During the task, two celebrities had to become 'Clock Watchers' and watch the rest of the house at all times until told otherwise by Big Brother, whilst Louie was designated the role of 'Big Brother Cuckoo.'
Day 6 Tasks
  • Housemates passed the 'Time Is Money' shopping task today, thereby earning a luxury food budget for the impending week.[11]
Day 7 Twists
  • Shortly after Danielle was evicted, as the first two housemates to survive eviction, Ron and Vicky were given the power to nominate one housemate who would automatically be up for the next eviction. They chose Louie to face eviction on Friday.[12]
Exits
  • Danielle was the first housemate to be evicted.[13]
Nominations
  • Shortly after Danielle's eviction, Ron and Vicky were given the power to nominate one housemate automatically to face the next public vote. They chose to nominate Louie. Louie, as a result of this, could still nominate but could not be nominated. Later that night, housemates nominated Charlotte, Courtney, Lauren and Ron for eviction. They joined Louie in facing the public vote.[12][14]
Day 8 Tasks
  • Today, a 'Random Task Generator Machine' was placed in the house. Housemates spun the wheel at random to be given a task of any kind to complete. Tasks included: Bruce having to slap himself with a fish whilst telling his life story in one minute or less, and Mario having to slowdance with the housemate he thought was the most attractive whilst wearing a mankini. As all housemates completed their tasks to the satisfaction of Big Brother, Courntey won a slumber party for her 19th birthday. Big Brother told her she could share her slumber party reward with one other housemate; she chose Dustin.[15]
Punishments
  • As punishment for discussing nominations, the housemates lost their luxury shopping budget won earlier in the week, in addition to all hot water and electrical appliances being switched off until further notice.[16]
Day 9 Exits
  • Ron became the second housemate to be evicted.[17]
Day 10 Tasks
  • Housemates had to get into pairs and participate in a dance-off against their partner, with each pair's dance-off based on a specific theme. Each dance-off was judged by Louie, who had to pick the winner that would then be eligible to go to a party that night with him. Later that day, respective dance-off winners Abz, Courtney, Mario, Bruce and Carol joined Louie for the party.[18]
Punishments
  • As punishment for discussing nominations, Courtney and Sophie were sent to the jail in the garden and, once again, all hot water and electrical appliances were switched off.[19]
  • Charlotte and Mario spent most of the day drawing over some of the housemates' faces on the memory wall and, as a punishment for doing so, they were required to draw over each other's faces and stay like this until further notice.[20]
Day 11 Nominations
  • Bruce, Courtney, Lauren, Louie and Sophie faced eviction, having received the most votes during the second round of nominations. Courtney, Lauren and Louie therefore faced the public vote for the second consecutive round.[21]
Twists
  • Shortly after the nominees were revealed, Big Brother played into the house footage of who nominated them.[22]
Day 12 Tasks
  • For the next shopping task, Carol, Lauren and Mario were kept as 'prisoners' by Mr. Big - or, so the other housemates thought. Instead, their mission was to pretend to be prisoners while actually living in luxury while getting the other celebrities to perform a series of demands that would enable their 'release.' For each demand, one of the prisoners had to become the non-existent Mr. Big and record a message using a voice-changer effect to be broadcast to those living in the house. Demands included: making the whole house live off of prisoner food (for example: chicken feet); getting Charlotte to drink three non-alcoholic lagers and eat three kebabs in just three minutes; offering Courtney the chance to meet her husband, who 'Mr. Big' had also trapped, in exchange for all of her personal possessions - as she accepted,[23] she had to wear dirty overalls only; forcing Dustin to become his character Screech from Saved by the Bell by getting the rest of the housemates to shave some of his beard off and supply him with a curly wig; making Louie perform a dance on top of 'glass' which was not harmful and, finally, getting the house to pick the three laziest housemates who all had their beds removed in exchange for new uncomfortable straw bedding. [24]
Day 13 Tasks
  • The weekly shopping task continued with more demands made to the house by the fictional character, Mr. Big. Demands included: making Abz perform his band Five's song "If Ya Gettin' Down" five times and giving Bruce and Vicky a script to follow that required them to fill in the names of the housemates that they thought most appropriate for the lines.[25] Later that day, Mr. Big revealed the 'prison' twist to the rest of the house and the results of the task. The housemates not only received an economy food budget for failing but as a further punishment for housemates' failure to comply with demands successfully during the task, they had to evict one of the prisoners. Housemates almost unanimously chose to sacrifice Carol.[26]
Twists
  • Carol was fake evicted as part of a twist after the failure of this week's shopping task (see Tasks) and moved to the 'prison' where she stayed for the next twenty-four hours in secret.[26]
Day 14 Tasks
  • Big Brother challenged the celebrities in a battle of the sexes task that involved the men going up against the women in a series of challenges in Big Brother's Muscle Arena. For the first challenge, entitled 'Milkshake Shaky Shake', Bruce and Vicky were handed protein shakes whilst on a balance-board until they could not support themselves or the drinks any longer. The first to drop all of their drinks would lose the game; Vicky was the winner. In the next challenge, 'Punch Your Way Out Of A Paper Bag', Lauren and Mario went head-to-head for their respective teams to find out which one of them could successfully punch their way out of a paper bag first. Mario won and received one point. In the final challenge, 'Gunge Dip', Dustin and Charlotte were required to hold onto a tricep bar for as long as they could, with Dustin as the first person to let go being gunged. Overall, the girls team, who won the majority of the challenges, were revealed as the winners. They won a selection of sweet treats to eat later that day.[27]
Exits
  • Sophie was the third housemate to be evicted this series.[28]
Twists
  • Carol re-entered the house following Sophie's exit, and was given the power to automatically nominate one housemate for eviction by Big Brother. She chose to nominate Courtney.[29]
Nominations
  • Before the next round of nominations began, Carol was given the power to automatically nominate one housemate for eviction, in which she chose to nominate Courtney. Courtney, although automatically against the public vote, was still eligible to nominate but could not be nominated.[29]
  • The next round of nominations took place face-to-face, with Abz, Bruce, Courtney, Dustin, Lauren, Louie and Vicky receiving the most votes from their fellow housemates.[30]
Day 16 Tasks
  • Charlotte and Mario, being reality television stars, were tasked with making up fellow housemates Courtney and Dustin to look and act like they would in their reality shows. First, they gave each of them a makeover. Next, Courtney and Dustin were required to act like a couple during a scene in the treehouse, renamed 'Lauren's Bar' as part of the task, before having an argument devised by Charlotte and Mario. As they passed the task, Courtney and Dustin were awarded with some sweet American style treats.[31]
Exits
  • In a double eviction, Dustin and Bruce were the fourth and fifth celebrities to leave the show respectively.[32]
Day 17 Entrances
Tasks
  • During Vanessa's brief stay, she had to deliver the viewers thoughts and opinions from the show's official Facebook page to the housemates via 'BBFM.' Housemates were awarded with a special lunch for taking part in the task.[34][35]
Day 18 Tasks
  • The celebrities were told to partner up with a pre-selected housemate, whom they had to remain tethered to via wrist straps until the end of the day. This subsequently meant that the celebrities nominated in their pairs (see Nominations). The pairs were: Abz and Charlotte, Carol and Lauren, Courtney and Mario, and Louie and Vicky. The pairs were tasked with shredding one of two housemates' letters each. This subsequently meant Charlotte, Courtney, Lauren and Louie did not receive their letters.[36]
Nominations
  • In the fifth and final round, housemates nominated in their pre-selected pairs that were determined earlier for the day's task (see Tasks). In each pair, both housemates collectively decided which two of their fellow housemates they wanted to nominate. Those who they chose could be from different pairs to one another. Carol, Courtney, Louie, Mario and Vicky received the most nomination votes and faced the last eviction before the final. Abz, Charlotte and Lauren were therefore finalists.[37][38]
Day 19 Entrances
  • Bit on the Side presenter Rylan Clark and ex-housemates Danielle and Sophie entered the house for the day's task (see Tasks).[37]
Tasks
  • Rylan Clark and ex-housemates Danielle and Sophie entered the house for the day's task; 'Big Brother's Bitchfest.' They debated issues inside and outside of the house whilst the celebrity housemates acted as the 'studio audience'. Issues of interest included Courtney's apparent flirting with Mario, what constitutes a celebrity and if your age means you should act it.[37] The task was passed later that day and, as a reward, the celebrities won a party.[39]
  • Mario was set a secret task to recover the letters of the four housemates (Charlotte, Courtney, Lauren and Louie) who did not receive their letters in the previous task. He had to write the name of one housemate within a sentence on four tennis balls and hide every tennis ball around the house. He had to make sure they were found. Mario successfully did so and as a result Charlotte, Courtney, Lauren and Louie received their letters.[40]
Day 20 Punishments
  • As punishment for discussing nominations, despite doing so in her sleep, Carol was sent to the jail in the garden.[41]
Day 21 Tasks
  • Celebrities competed in the 'Battle of the Bands' competition, which saw Carol, Charlotte, Courtney and Louie form 'The Jumbles' band and Abz, Lauren, Mari, and Vicky form 'Malv4.' Each band was required to write their own original song about their journey in the house and had to also choreograph a dance routine, choose a band name and restyle themselves using clothes provided by Big Brother. The Jumbles were deemed the winners and won a luxury rider as a reward.[42]
  • Later that night, housemates had to attend a special awards ceremony, where they could receive rewards voted for by the viewers:[43]
Exits
  • Courtney and Louie were the sixth and seventh celebrities respectively to be evicted from the house.[44]
Day 23 Exits
  • Vicky was the eighth housemate to leave the house. She was shortly followed by Mario, who was then followed by Carol and Lauren. Charlotte was announced as the winner of the series, meaning Abz was this year's runner-up.[45]
