 Launch week recap: Stormy Daniels backs out, President Kirstie’s reign begins and Rodrigo’s warning


After an extended break, Celebrity Big Brother returned to our screens this week with changes both on screen and behind the scenes.

With a brand new series underway, we here at Big Blagger are pleased to present our newest weekly feature as we recap the week both inside and outside of the Celebrity Big Brother house. So let’s dive straight in, shall we?

  • Stormy Daniels pulls out of Celebrity Big Brother lineup, hours before launch

The drama kicked off on launch night before the show even aired on Channel 5 when adult film star Stormy Daniels pulled out of the celebrity lineup just hours before the show went live. The controversial porn star was rumoured for months to be entering the house after she was at the centre of a media storm in America for allegedly having an affair with current US President Donald Trump.

Fans were vocal about Daniels’ absence from the lineup when it became clear that the Presidential launch night twist was intended for her. On Friday, Channel 5 released a statement confirming Daniels was set to appear but backed out.

On spin-off Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side, host Rylan Clark-Neal addressed the issue on the air for the first and only time.

  • President Kirstie’s administration begins

Launch night saw Hollywood actress Kirstie Alley enter the Celebrity Big Brother house first and because of that, she became the ‘President’ of the house. Viewers voted via the Big Brother app and made Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas her Vice President. Big Brother gave the new ‘administration’ the power to put new orders into the house.

The first was the ‘Climate Change Bill’, which saw Ben Jardine take nothing but cold showers until further notice. VP Ryan introduced the ‘Healthcare Bill’ and picked TOWIE’s Dan Osborne drink liquidised green vegetables for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and he will do so until further notice.

Finally, President Kirstie put the ‘Foreign Trade Deal’ into motion, forcing one housemate to sacrifice their suitcase and wear clothes provided by Big Brother. The pair chose Rodrigo Alves to lose his suitcase and he was less than pleased.

But once he saw his outfit, he wore it with pride.

Rodrigo receives his first and only warning for racial language

In the first highlight’s show of the series on Friday, Rodrigo was given his first and only warning for using a racial slur – not once but twice.

Rodrigo was talking with his fellow celebrity housemates and used the N-word when describing his ideal type when looking for a partner. Towards the end of the episode, Rodrigo was called to Diary Room and told off by Big Brother for his offensive language.

Channel 5 released a statement on Twitter and said Big Brother does not tolerate the use of highly offensive language.

What a crazy first three days inside the house! It looks like we’re in for a fun and wild four weeks. See you lot next Sunday for a recap from the first full week of the series.

Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
