Anthea Turner, Vanessa Feltz and Keith Duffy will take their places in the house for a charity version of Big Brother.

Anthea Turner, Vanessa Feltz and Keith Duffy will take their places in the house for a charity version of Big Brother.

But organisers of the Comic Relief special say there will be no footage of the six volunteers in the toilet or as they shower each day.

Contestants enter the house for the week-long fund-raiser, with the first eviction on Saturday.

The other three are Claire Sweeney, who plays Brookside's Lindsey Corkhill, Jack Dee and Chris Eubank.

The housemates will receive no fees for the Channel 4 show and money raised from the public voting lines will go to Comic Relief, as will the fee which TV company Endemol would have been given for use of the format.

There will be evictions every other day with the final departure taking place during BBC 1's Red Nose Day coverage on March 16.
