Yesterday was Day 1 of the new series as Celebrity Big Brother January 2017 launched. The most famous house in Britain is back and has undergone pop-art makeover and this series has a cast of All Stars and New Stars.
14 celebrities made their debut last night: All Stars: Heidi & Spencer, James Jordan, Jasmine Waltz, Austin Armacost, Coleen Nolan, Nicola McLean, Calum Best and New Stars: Bianca Gascoigne, Ray J, Stacy Francis, Brandon Block, James Cosmo, Jamie O’Hara and Angie Best.
And it's fair to say a few of them have history, whether it's Speidi and Austin's rivalry or Angie and Calum's mum and son relationship.
In the show tonight, Ray J reveals that he knows Stacy; “She’s a friend of the family. We experienced something real deep, a tragic thing happened…”
Stacy meanwhile is talking to Big Brother in the diary room; “I just felt it was really unfair. It was shocking when I saw Ray, I kinda shut down. I want a real talk with him; I need a heart to heart with him. I just want to have fun! I’m upbeat, not the least bit entertaining.”
She continues; “Ray J threw me under the bus. When people in America tried to make me out to be something I wasn’t, he never stood up for me. I want to know why he never said anything.
"When Whitney Houston’s sister Pat went on the Oprah show and said I was stalking Whitney Houston in the club, I was not, we were all standing there talking and having a good time, he knows that, he knows the events of the whole night.
"He never said this is a friend of my family. I’ve known Ray and his family over 15 years; he never came to bat for me. I wish he had the heart to say she wasn’t stalking Whitney in the club, she’s a friend. It was a hard time, I lost everything.”
Celebrity Big Brother 2017 airs tonight at 9PM on Channel 5.
