Big Brother 2017: Chanelle McCleary angry as housemates ignore her birthday

Big Brother 2017

Chanelle McCleary gets in a huff on Big Brother 2017 tonight when housemates ignore her birthday.

Yesterday in the house was Chanelle's birthday. Big Brother sets the house a secret mission, to avoid showing Chanelle any birthday attention in order to win her a surprise birthday party.

In this evening's episode, Chanelle talks to her soft toy Cat on the sofa; “Thank you, pussy pussy. At least you remembered.

"Some friends haven’t even said happy birthday yet, pussy pussy”.

Deborah then exits the room without commenting or wishing Chanelle a happy birthday.


As part of the task, Big Brother tells Deborah she must talk constantly about how great her previous birthdays have been, whilst still ignoring the fact that today is Chanelle’s birthday.

Deborah leaves the diary room and starts telling housemates about her extravagant birthday plans. Chanelle is visibly upset.

Chanelle retreats to the downstairs toilet. Deborah enters the room and starts inviting Chanelle to her birthday party. Chanelle asks Deborah to leave but Deborah continues to talk about how ‘big’ her birthday is going to be this year.

Chanelle then heads to the diary room to speak to Big Brother about how upset she is that her birthday has been ruined.

She tells Big Brother she wants to go home; “It’s my f***ing birthday. I just want to go home, I want to be with my friends and family at home”


But when Chanelle leaves the dairy room, housemates are waiting at the bottom of the stairs, shouting ‘SURPRISE’, wearing masks of her face and throwing confetti. The house is dressed with balloons and towers of cakes and doughnuts.

The boys dance for Chanelle and when it’s his turn, Kieran lays Chanelle down on the floor and begins to take his clothes off.

Big Brother 2017 airs tonight at 10PM on Channel 5.
