Series Chronology

Next: Celebrity Big Brother 19

Celebrity Big Brother 18 was the eighteenth series of the British reality television series Celebrity Big Brother. The series launched on 28 July 2016 and ended on 26 August 2016, just two days after the conclusion of Big Brother 17 on Channel 5 in the United Kingdom and TV3 in Ireland.

ProductionEdit

Edit

The official eye logo for the series was released on 8 July 2016, when it was posted online by presenter Emma Willis. The eye is of similar design to the one used for Big Brother 17, except instead of the black and white scheme that was used for the regular series, the celebrity version features a gold star in the middle.

TeasersEdit

On 19 July 2016, a brief 4-second "eye flash" aired on Channel 5 with the series logo emblazoned on a suitcase. On 21 July 2016, countdown adverts started airing with clues to the housemates identities, with the clues being "Beach bod", "Glamour puss", "National treasure" and "Iconic model".

BroadcastingEdit

On 8 July 2016, it was confirmed that the spin-off show Bit On The Side would air an additional episode on Sunday nights on 5STAR.

HouseEdit

On 28 July 2016, Good Morning Britain toured the house and uploaded a 30-second video to their YouTube channel containing pictures of the kitchen area, stairs, bedroom and an empty living area.

On Day 4, a fire broke out in the kitchen. It happened as some of the group got involved in a food fight before breakfast as Heavy D, James and Lewis poured various ingredients over one another. The distraction left their attempt to cook bacon smoking up the house and eventually set off the fire alarms. The housemates were then evacuated to the garden.

ControversyEdit

On Day 4, Ofcom received over 79 complaints after Marnie exposed her breasts in Saira's face as a dare.

On Day 5, Biggins and Renee were blasted for making biphobic comments during a conversation about sexuality.[1] Despite this, the pair were not warned by Big Brother, which in turn caused more outrage.

On Day 6, Ofcom received 74 complaints after Aubrey spat in food and a drink that she served to Bear during a task.

NotesEdit

  • : On Day 1, the public voted for Biggins to become the "Secret Boss", and believed he had sole control over who was nominated in the first week. However, the housemates were aware of his position, and were told that the housemates he nominates will actually receive immunity. He chose Saira on Day 1, Lewis on Day 2 and Heavy D on Day 3. For completing the task, Biggins also received immunity.
  • : On Day 9, the Housemates were instructed to choose one person that they wanted to face the public vote every week until the end of the series. Bear received the most votes and was therefore granted an "eternal nomination".
  • : Shortly after Saira's eviction, the three eviction survivors; Bear, Heavy D and Lewis were told they had to give a killer nomination each to decide who would face eviction. On Day 14, Renee was saved from eviction and had to replace herself with another housemate. She chose Chloe.
  • : The two housemates with the least votes; Chloe and Marnie, went head-to-head in a game of chance to determine who would be evicted. The housemates each voted for who they would like to leave, which would take up a proportion of a wheel. Chloe eventually was evicted after the wheel landed on one of her sections.
  • : The nominations were face-to-face. This week was a double eviction.
  • : The housemates were separated into two teams for the festive themed head-to-head challenges. The Elves were Aubrey, Frankie, Marnie and Renee whilst the Reindeer were Bear, Katie, Ricky and Samantha. The Elves won two nominations to give each, whilst the losing team only have one nomination to give each.
