Celebrity Big Brother’s Dan Osborne and Gabby Allen’s history revealed

Dan Osborne and Gabby Allen have both entered the Celebrity Big Brother house – and they have history.


Gabby Allen is a British reality television personality who is best known for appearing on the third series of Love Island – where she met her boyfriend Marcel.

In April this year Gabby’s fairytale romance came to a crashing holt when she found out that Marcel had cheated on her whilst they were away on holiday together.

Meanwhile, Dan Osborne is an English former reality star who appeared in the hit show, The Only Way Is Essex. He is also known for his relationship with ex-EastEnders’ actress Jacqueline Jossa.

In June it was reported that his wife Jacqueline had dumped him after learning he had cheated on her with a Miss Essex.

That was followed by more claims when he was pictured with Gabby.

Gabby was once again at the centre of a media frenzy when reports suggested Dan had cheated on Jacqueline with the Love Islander. Both Dan and Gabby hit back at the rumours, firmly denying them.


Speaking before entering the house, Gabby said: “I can’t wait for other housemates to learn about me as an individual and not in a relationship.”

She added: “It would be nice to have a mum type figure in the house as I am going to miss my Mum.”

Meanwhile, Dan says he’s a “better person now” after previous controversy in another relationship.

He said: “It’s no secret that I’ve been through a storm in the media – the recordings of an argument that I had in a previous relationship, but if anything it’s made me a better person now.

“Life now is a lot more positive. Since then I’ve had two more children…I have a different outlook on pretty much everything.”

He also revealed he’s reconciled with wife Jacqueline Jossa.

“Me and Jacqueline have had a bad patch but we’ve been getting on a lot better recently. We’ve been getting on well,” he said. We’ve just had a baby. Things are fine and we’re getting on well. I don’t think I’m in a position to be thinking about love interests in there.”


Celebs joining Dan and Gabby in the house are Hollywood actress Kirstie Alley, Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas and headline grabbing footballer Jermaine Pennant.

Next into the house were model Chloe Ayling, Emmerdale actress Roxanne Pallet, comic, Radio and TV presenter Hardeep Singh Kohli, Married At First Sight star Ben Jardine, Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves and TV psychic Sally Morgan.

Rounding off the line up are American reality TV personality Natalie Nunn and finally rogue trader Nick Leeson.

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly at 9PM on Channel 5. The series is expected to last for around a month.


Alongside the main show, Rylan Clark-Neal hosts Bit On The Side nightly.

The next live show takes place next Friday night with Emma Willis.
