Nicola McLean slams "crap" Brian Dowling as she returns to Celebrity Big Brother

Brian Dowling

Outspoken Nicola McLean didn't even wait to get inside the Celebrity Big Brother house before kicking off tonight.

This evening was the live launch of the special All Stars v New Stars series as the housemates joined the house.

This year the line up is made up of a mix of former Celebrity Big Brother housemates and new celebs taking part for the first time.

All Stars in the house alongside Nicola are American couple Speidi, ex Strictly pro James Jordan, model Jasmine Waltz, Austin Armacost, Loose Women regular Coleen Nolan.

Meanwhile, new stars are musician Ray J, model Bianca Gascoigne, actor James Cosmo, X Factor USA finalist Stacy Francis, 90s DJ Brandon Block and footballer Jamie O'Hara.

On entering the house, current CBB host Emma Willis asked Nicola why she was entering the show again having complained of her previous experience.

It was a question Emma no doubt now regrets, with Nicola replying by saying that former host Brian was "crap" and had treated her unfairly after her eviction in 2012.

Emma, who replaced Brian, looked on awkwardly before sending Nicola into the house.

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
