Celebrity Big Brother 2018: Five housemates immune from first eviction

Five housemates are immune from the first Celebrity Big Brother eviction.


Last Tuesday night saw the first half of the Celebrity Big Brother 2018 cast revealed as eight leading ladies joined the house.

In what has been named ‘Year Of The Women’, CBB’s latest run begun with a female only cast.

Those making up the line up are former MP Ann Widdecombe, Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Malika Haqq, Boris Johnson’s sister Rachel Johnson, Ex On The Beach star Jess Impiazzi, actress Amanda Barrie, Made In Chelsea’s Ashley James, newsreader India Willoughby and former Detective Constable Maggie Oliver, known for her work investigating the Rochdale grooming scandal.

Since entering, a number of tasks have been deciding which celebs will be immune from the first eviction, starting with the women.

Malika, Amanda, Jess and Maggie won the tasks and are immune from eviction. Ashley, India, Rachel and Ann all failed to win immunity.


Last Friday, eight men then entered the house, starting with footballer John Barnes and RuPaul’s Drag Race star Courtney Act – aka Shane Jenek.

Love Island’s Jonny Mitchell, Boyzone singer Shane Lynch and comedian Daniel O’Reilly (aka Dapper Laughs) were next inside the house.

Finally rounding off the male celebrities were US R&B star Ginuwine, The Apprentice candidate Andrew Brady and British ballet dancer Wayne Sleep.

They also took part in a series of immunity challenges which were ultimately won by Shane J.

He therefore joins Malika, Amanda, Jess and Maggie in being immune from the first eviction.

The remaining men and women are in danger of being nominated, but in a twist it’ll be the women alone who get the vote.

The live eviction will take place on Friday 12th January, live from 9PM with host Emma Willis.


However there will still be a live show this upcoming Tuesday, according to the latest schedules.

Running 90 minutes from 9PM, Emma will be on hand to presumably drop a live twist on the housemates.


What exactly Big Brother has planned has yet to be revealed.

Celebrity Big Brother airs nightly at 9PM on Channel 5.
