Celebrity Big Brother 2018 news! Immunity challenge, Ann v Rachel and more updates

Here’s your Thursday afternoon round up of all the latest Celebrity Big Brother 2018 news.


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

Those currently in the house 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 and actress Amanda Barrie.

They’re joined by Made In Chelsea’s Ashley James, newsreader India Willoughby and former Detective Constable Maggie Oliver, known for her work investigating the Rochdale grooming scandal.

During their first full day of the house, the ladies settled in and got to know each other more in depth.


In one scene due to air in tonight’s show, Rachel quizzes India on her transition and ultimately asks “Can I see your tits? Can we?”


India says: “They just feel right. They fit. It’s a weird thing but it just fits how I feel. And I’ve always felt, but now they’re actually there, it’s terrific.”

Elsewhere in the house on Wednesday, Jess admitted she began the day feeling left out. Speaking to Big Brother in the Diary Room, Jess explained how she ended up chatting to Ann and being pleasantly surprised.

“She has different viewers to myself on certain things, like nudity, but there’s so much to her. We could all learn from Ann.”

Meanwhile, Ann and Rachel had a heated debate over mums who work.

Later on there was an axe throwing competition (of course) to decide who would be the next immune housemate. Malika was the winner and so joins Amanda, Jess and Maggie in being immune from the next eviction.

Outside the house, there have been more rumoured male housemates ahead of them joining the current cast on Friday night.


And finally, ratings for the first highlights episode dipped to below 1.5 million viewers last night. The show had launched with 2.1 million on Tuesday.


Celebrity Big Brother 2018 airs tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.

Bit On The Side is on at 11:05PM.
