Celebrity Big Brother 7 is the seventh series of Celebrity Big Brother and the final series to air on Channel 4 and E4. It began on Sunday 3 January 2010 and aired for 27 days until the final on 29 January 2010, the longest ever celebrity series in the UK. The series launched with 6.7 million viewers, and went on to become the most watched series of Big Brother UK since 2007, averaging 3.7 million viewers per night Davina McCall returned as main presenter, also hosting Big Brother's Big Mouth. George Lamb also returned to present Big Brother's Little Brother. The show was sponsored by the bed retailer Dreams, who also sponsored the previous celebrity series. Alex Reid won the show with 65.9% of the final vote, hence becoming the final Channel 4 Celebrity Big Brother winner. Alex's percentage equates to 36.88% in real terms, beating the series runner-up by a margin of over 17%.

Pre-seriesEdit

A Celebrity Big Brother 7 pre-series special show, Top 20 Celebrity Big Brother Moments, featured the series' most memorable moments of the show according to viewers who have voted online. The show aired on E4 on 28 December 2009. Within the special, the new graphics for the upcoming series were introduced. On 13 December 2008, the first trailer was aired on Channel 4, during a screening of film Elf. A hell theme, similar to that of Big Brother 5 and Big Brother 9 was hinted with a tagline in the trailer that said: "Hell Lies in Others". Five days later on 18 December 2009, the first full 30-second long trailer was aired, with the eye present.

Channel 4 has announced that it will resume its tradition of donating some of its income made from the premium-rate telephone lines; votes will be increased to 50p (an increase from 35p), with 15p going to Comic Relief and the donations from the phone votes from the 16th January 2010 to the finale will go to support the relief efforts in Haiti following the recent earthquake.

EyeEdit

The eye logo was revealed on 14 December 2009 on the Channel 4 website. It is the first time that the logo has been based on a real eye since series one in 2000. It is also the first time ever that the Celebrity Big Brother eye was not based on the eye from the summer series before it.

HouseEdit

Official images of the House's entrance, living area, kitchen, and the bathroom were released on the show's website on 29 December 2009. This was the first time that a brand new House was used for a celebrity series. Usually, Celebrity Big Brother uses the same house as the summer series which preceded it.

TasksEdit

Day 1 Housemates had five minutes to fit inside a Mini. Any housemate not inside the car was "warned". 2 Champagne Bottles Passed
Day 2 Housemates participated in a William Tell style shooting task to try to win bonus shopping items. Sov, Vinnie, and Stephanie alternated being human targets, and the other housemates had to shoot paint-filled balloons at chosen food items on a platform above the target's head with a leg-operated slingshot. To win the food item, the shooter had to hit the board above the target's head or the food item itself. Food Milk,
Fresh Cheese,
Mayonnaise,
Ketchup,
Salt,
Fajitas
Day 3 Big Brother called Vinnie to answer a ringing telephone inside a booth that was placed in the garden. Housemates had to free him – as the door to the booth was locked – by performing a series of tasks. Each task successfully completed would reveal one or more digits which was part of a code Vinnie had to relay over to Big Brother to 'learn his fate.' Birthday Party Passed
Day 4 The "Tree of Temptation" in the garden set Jonas a secret task to pour sand over another housemate's bed. Egyptian Cotton Bedsheets for Stephanie Failed
Day 5 The male housemates took part in the "Hunk-Off 2010", a contest involving an evening wear round, a swimwear round and a talent round. The female housemates gave each male points in every round. Title of Hunkiest Housemate Sisqó
Day 6 On the live special, all housemates performed in their own variety show, with the surprise that a new housemate would enter at the end of the performance. Heidi, Jonas, Katia and Nicola wore frilly dresses for a can-can dance. Stephanie performed a lone stand up routine. Vinnie performed ventriloquism with the help of his dummy, Stephen. Alex and Dane performed the song, "Especially for You". And finally, Sisqó performed a Vegas style magic show with help from his assistant, Sov. During Sisqó's act, Sov disappeared (she was actually in the Diary Room), with Ivana taking her place. 1 New Housemate Passed
Day 7 The "Tree of Temptation" set Alex the task of kicking down the snowman in the garden - built by Jonas on Day 4. Alex's Punch-bag for 1 Hour Passed
Day 9 – Day 10 For this weeks shopping task housemates had to run "Last Legs Retirement Home" for two days. Stephanie and Ivana were carers to the rest of the housemates, who were old age pensioners. The OAPs had to eat liquidised food throughout the task and had to take part in an armchair aerobics session with Mr Motivator. For the first challenge, five residents of the home had to take part in a game of Countdown against the 2009 champion Chris Davies. For the second challenge all the residents of the home completed a pensioner themed assault course - containing obstacles such riding a stairlift and finding a personalised bus pass in a tank of blue rinse - in a total time of under 30 minutes. In the final challenge of the task, residents had to complete a crossword with all the answers being words housemates have used to describe each other. Luxury Shopping Budget Failed
Day 11 Vinnie took part in a Mastermind-style quiz on the Big Brother Welcome Pack, which he had read at least twice every day during his stay in the House. For every question he answered correctly he would receive a special prize for each member of the group. Treats Framed Photo of Jonas for Katia,

Day 15 Big Brother asked the most vocal housemate to come to the Diary Room. This housemate, Sisqó, was required to sing karaoke songs with missing words in them. For every song he gets completely correct he would receive a luxury prize. Six of the housemates were sat on a turntable with cold custard, cat food, liquid curry, fish guts and greasy gravy on another. If he got a lyric wrong, one housemate on the turntable would be sprayed with one of the items on the other turntable. Luxury Condiment,

Passed
Day 16 Big Brother set the housemates a life drawing task. Two models, Ivana and Nicola, were given flesh-coloured underwear and had to pose for the rest of the housemates to draw them. For completing their part in the task, Ivana won ten steaks and Nicola won a photograph of her daughter. The housemate with the best drawing, Dane, won a cocktail. 10 Steaks for Ivana,
Photograph of her Daughter for Nicola
Passed
Cocktail Dane
Day 17 The "Tree of Temptation" told Dane to make the housemates' dinner inedible by pouring extra-hot chili powder onto it. Replacement Key,
Stopping of Punishments
Failed
The "Tree" gave Dane a second chance to earn a replacement key by making him wait until every housemate was asleep before pretending to wake up as if he had just had a nightmare. If he woke up every housemate with his scream and made one of them give him a sympathetic hug, the punishments would stop. Passed
Day 18 The housemates were split into three teams, who were required to fit the offal of a cow into a wire mesh cow.
Day 20 Housemates were given a task of building a corner workstation with a chair using flat-pack furniture in 45 minutes. As Jonas was deemed to have an unfair advantage due to him being Swedish, he was given the task to sabotage the task. Swedish Spa Passed
Day 21 The first task of the day was given to Nicola by the "Tree of Temptation". To receive a message from home, Nicola had to tell a home truth to each of her fellow housemates and give them a kiss. Video Message from Home Passed
Later in the day, housemates had to play a game of "Celebrity Hell Charades", where they had to mime infamous and embarrassing celebrity faux pas. They had one hour to mime 14 charades and for every correct mime they would receive an extra 5 minutes in bed in the morning. Extra 1 Hour 10 Minutes in Bed Passed
Day 22 Big Brother set housemates the task of staying chained together in groups of two or three. Vinnie & Ivana, Alex & Dane and Stephanie, Nicola & Jonas stayed chained together for 6 hours and 45 minutes.
Day 23 Ivana was told she had been nominated for a magazine show 'Kugel Fresh'. However she didn't know it was fake. The other housemates had to convince her it was real. Ivana won the fake award and the housemates had to spoil it for her by saying it was rubbish, at least three people had to drink out of it and at least one of them smash it. They achieved all three. Awards Ceremony,
Goody Bag
Passed
Day 24 Housemates were set the task of creating a bust of Lionel Richie blindfolded and using clay. While they were blindfolded, a Richie lookalike entered the House. Stephanie
Day 25 The "Tree of Temptation" set Vinnie the task of telling Alex he had cross dressed before and enjoyed it. Then, he had to tell the housemates over lunch how much he had bonded with them all with tears. Viewing of the FA Cup Fourth Round Passed
The next task required housemates to dress up as farm animals and make animal noises everywhere in the House except for a pen in the living area. This task allowed Davina to enter the House dressed as a chicken.
