Myster lover to join Celebrity Big Brother

An old flame or current love of a Celebrity Big Brother housemate is to join the show, it emerged tonight.

An old flame or current love of a Celebrity Big Brother housemate is to join the show, it emerged tonight.

The ninth celebrity will be surprising the housemates tomorrow night, with programme makers promising the mystery contestant has, or has had, a relationship with one current contestant.

Meanwhile, DJ Lisa I’Anson has become Queen of the Big Brother house for three days under the first weekly task.

This means she is to be waited on hand and foot by her fellow housemates for the entire period.

Model Caprice is the Royal Dresser, academic Germaine Greer is the Royal Cook, and betting pundit John McCririck is the Court Jester.

Pop star Kenzie is Royal Minstrel, actor Jeremy Edwards and Happy Mondays legend Bez are footmen while the former Mrs Sylvester Stallone, Brigitte Nielsen, has to warm the toilet seat for Lisa.

Their tasks under this theme will include pheasant plucking and painting.

Earlier in the day, the housemates fruitlessly attempted to persuade John to join in the fun.

He has excluded himself from the group in a protest over Diet Coke not being on the menu.

The first round of nominations will take place on Tuesday and be broadcast on Wednesday on Channel Four at 9pm.

That will be followed by a live eviction next Friday.

Ladbrokes makes John favourite to be first evicted at 5-4 while Jeremy is the 2-1 favourite to win.
