We always knew that Big Brother would be back, and now that lovely old Channel 5 has bought the show it’s only a few days before it goes live (Thursday August 18, 2011). Yesterday the press launch party took place in Hertfordshire, with Big Brother’s most famous (and forgotten) faces in attendance.
Naturally, Brian Belo was there – the day he doesn’t come to anything BB related will be the day we die of shock – and he actually looked quite nice yesterday in a crumpled white shirt with some slim-fitting men’s chinos. Another Brian that looked quite lovely was our favourite, Brian Dowling, who looked very dapper and sharp in a two-piece grey men’s suit.
On the girl’s side we had the beautiful TV presenter Emma Willis, who looked fresh and pretty in a polka-dot tea dress with red detailing and red patent heels. Also there was the ex-Atomic Kitten and Snog Marry Avoid? presenter Jenny Frost, who showed off long, tanned pins in a split-skirt black maxi dress, with lots and lots of gold jewellery. Keep up the good work, Jenny.
We must also note that some ex-housemates did not make much of a sterling effort: last series’ Sam Pepper wore scruffy cut-offs, his usual cap and a bright yellow T-shirt. I’m sorry, Sam, but didn’t anyone tell you that this is a glitzy event? BRIAN BELO is here, for god’s sake. 2009′s Marcus Akin was there – you know, the one that looks like a rubbish Wolverine – in a cringey Ed Hardy tee and leather bracelets. No one should wear Ed Hardy when they’re emptying the cat litter tray, let alone going to a press party. Take note Marcus.
