Gillian Taylforth became the fourth person to be evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house last night, and immediately after her boot she sunk her claws into the double-trouble team of Heidi and Spencer Pratt, labelling them as "bullies."
The former Eastenders and The Bill actress opened up on her experiences in the house when she was interviewed by CBB host Brian Dowling following her eviction, discussing her true feelings about the rest of the housemates, especially Spiedi. "I didn't like it at all," said the actress, referring to the time when the US reality stars moved back into the house again, after they had been living in the basement together. She went on to say that because of those two in particular, the house erupted in argument after argument, something she wasn't a fan of at all. She said, "I've been around arguments a lot in my life and been involved in them and I didn't like it at all."
"Especially when they started saying about Claire, and she got really upset - I found that not very fair, it was like bullying," she added, whilst also discussing her attempts to remain as far from the conflict as possible and persuading others to do so too.

Not content with the fame and fortune that a life of reality TV has brought her, Heidi Montag (star of The Hills and Celebrity Big Brother housemate) is convinced that she has what it takes to be a pop star. The 26 year-old is so self-assured by her vocal talents that she allegedly sunk a fortune into recording her own album, Superficial which was released… and sank without a trace… in 2010.
Even with the powers of one of pop music’s greatest songwriter’s Cathy Dennis at her disposal, and technological advances, such as auto-tune, we have to say, Heidi, please don’t give up the day job. Whatever that is, exactly. We’ve looked a little deeper into Heidi’s pop career and, frankly, it’s a joke. It’s not even ‘so bad it’s good. It’s just bad, sorry Heidi. We reckon Cathy Dennis must have been clearing out her ‘unwanted pop song’ drawer when she handed these duds over to Montag; most likely she didn’t want to waste her best songs on someone that can’t hold a tune. Songs like ‘I’ll Do It’ and ‘Higher’ are vacuous pop at their very worst.
The bottom of the barrel, though, has to be the video for ‘Higher,’ which was directed by her husband Spencer Pratt. If it was filmed as a comedy sketch, they’d probably be up for some kind of award. As a serious pop video, though, the low-budget ‘chasing seagulls’ Montag-montage simply doesn’t cut it for us. And yes, we know you have a nice figure. And no, we don’t want to buy your record. She’s already admitted that spending that $2million left her broke. Frankly, watching that video has left us broken.
It's not use putting all that garb on Paula Hamilton, we know that it's you whose the first to have been evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother UK house. The veteran British model entered the contest on January 3, alongside, um, 'stars' like former footballer Neil Ruddock, X Factor UK contestant Rylan Clark and former Steps member Claire Richards, but only six days later she found herself on the way back out, as the public opted to save race jockey Frankie Dettori and reality TV couple Heidie Montag and Spencer Pratt.
Celebrity Big Brother 2013 has had its first eviction, and Paula Hamilton's biggest fear came to fruition as the ex-supermodel became the first of the season to be evicted.
Hamilton, 'Speidi' aka Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, plus Frankie Dettori were all up for eviction. Frankie had sacrificed himself to make sure everyone one the 'basement' could come up to the main house, and stop living in squalor. During evictions, Speidi - as one housemate - received 10 nominations, i.e. everyone in the house nominated them, and Paula got four nominations. She took the news badly and even threatened to leave early. For the following day she ranted about how she had feared being first to leave, telling the other housemates that she was convinced she'd be leaving and that it would seriously, negatively affect her career. While the other housemates tried to reassure her that it was 'just a game', she retorted that it wasn't a game, that is affected her life.
Upon leaving the house she was met with boos. Speidi managed to survive the week despite being boring and mean. The voting was to save the housemate rather than evict though, so while Frankie has been endearing, and Speidi have their die-hard obsessive fans around the nation, Paula in contrast seemed a little tame. Having been saved though, Speidi have been set a secret task by Big Brother - to convince fellow housemates that they're walking out... only to head straight to the basement where it will have been made suitable for the couple, from which they will reign over the main house, unbeknownst to the rest of them. Sneaky.
Things are getting tense in the Celebrity Big Brother house, just two days after the show’s kickoff, but would anyone have any other way?
The whole basement/luxury upstairs quarters scenario has become the source of a lot of the tension in the house, as those downstairs get increasingly cross with the lucky upstairs residents. The other reason for the problems? American reality show duo Speidi, aka Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, who gained international stardom (well, sort of) on MTV’s scripted reality drama thing The Hills. According to the pair, Spenser’s portrayal on as the villain of The Hills was for entertainment purposes only and it didn’t matter that he was painted black for the world to see, as long as the checks were rolling in. Maybe not a villain, but certainly a bit annoying, if the first couple of days on CBB are anything to go by.
During that time, Spencer managed to tee off a bunch of his fellow contestants, before he and Heidi moved up to the luxury rooms at the surprising decision of Frankie Dettori. Their run didn’t stop there, however, as Heidi got into something of a bikini body contest with page three model Lacey. Overall, it’s your standard drama this year. If you enjoy watching semi-famous people, lounging about their opulent surroundings and complaining about anything and everything – Celebrity Big Brother – tune in for more.
Celebrity Big Brother housemate Paula Hamilton reportedly failed psychiatric tests to appear on the show three years ago, according to a former crew member. The former model and actress entered the famous house during last night's premiere wearing a bizarre outfit and mistaking fellow contestant Ryan Moloney as somebody working on the show.
Jo Hemmings, who worked on every series of the show when it was on Channel 4, vented her anger at the model's inclusion on Twitter, saying, "Paula Hamilton - because sending an alcoholic who failed her C4 psych tests three years ago is SUCH a good idea...At the risk of sounding like a killjoy, it's a seriously irresponsible decision." At the behest of jockey Frankie Dettori and X Factor star Rylan Clark, Paula was immediately sent to the "basement," where half of the celebrities will remain in the cold and damp until further notice. Hemmings continued, "Paula Hamilton in basement? I was going to give her 48 hours in the house, pre meltdown. Much less now. She shouldn't be there at all!" before claiming the model has "way more problems than Jasmine Lennard," who behaved strangely during the last series.
Hamilton was joined in the basement by Neil 'Razor' Ruddock, Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, Ryan Moloney but sure enough, she was soon moved upstairs to the luxury accommodation after becoming unwell. A show insider told The Independent, "After receiving advice from the Big Brother doctor, the decision was taken to move our former supermodel from the dank CBB basement to the glorious world above. She is a new luxury housemate. It's a real rags to riches story."
We can just imagine Frankie Dettori talking Lindsay Lohan through his epic Gold Cup win on Colour Vision at Royal Ascot last year, or the Hollywood star telling the jockey about her latest film The Canyons. Yep, this is shaping up to be the most bizarre Celebrity Big Brother in history.
The whole thing kicks off tonight (January 3, 2012) and although Chanel 5 have refused to reveal the identities of the stars lined up to appear, friends of Dettori have confirmed to the Daily Telegraph that he will be taking part. Lindsay Lohan has been in London for several days now, seemingly for no good reason.

It seems the producers of this year’s Celebrity Big Brother are masters of disguise! There was no telling who it was being whisked into a London hotel today, because their identity was being hidden with the most cunning of disguises… a towel! Yes, that’s right. All that time and money spent on the show and all they had left in the budget was enough to buy a towel to hide the identity of their contestants. Well, we are in a recession, after all.
The Daily Mail have published snaps of the CBB 2013 contestant being led into the hotel, ahead of the show, which begins tomorrow but the producers have done a good job so far of keeping the details of who’s going in under wraps. Literally, in this case, as they walked in with a towel around them. Rumoured to be taking part though, is Lindsay Lohan, who seems to have arrived in London for no good reason and Rylan the former X Factor contestant, who would bring the “loud, camp and boisterous” factor that host Brian Dowling is craving.
Dowling told new! magazine that he’d love Rylan to be one of the housemates and also revealed that he’s love Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt (stars of US reality show The Hills) to be in the house because “they're so crazy. It's like they would do almost anything to get some attention.” They sound like perfect candidates for CBB 2013, then!
The rumours have already started for the 2013 series of Celebrity Big Brother.
So who do we think will end up in the house of horror this time around? It feels almost certain that X Factor reject and all round celebrity wannabe Rylan will make an appearance but according to STV, he also wants to be selected to take part in the X Factor tour, which would stop him going on the reality TV show.
He’ll be pretty sad, then, if the other rumour is true and his buddy Katie Price takes up the offer. The former glamour model, who is certainly no stranger to the world of reality TV, is also rumoured to have an offer on the table, as is the former Steps singer Claire Richards. So far, so hellish, right? Other celebs rumoured to have been asked to join the house include Bruce Jones, aka Les Battersby from Coronation Street and the MP Nadine Dorries. Sure though… SURELY Dorries has more sense than to go on yet another reality show so soon? Or will the lure of ‘fame’ (and fortune) prove too much for ego to turn down?
In an interview with Access Hollywood Live, after a couple of years out of the intense public view that she had been used to thanks to hit reality television show The Hills, Heidi Montag opened up about her marriage, plastic surgery and what life is like out of the spotlight.
Regarding the enormous amount of plastic surgery Heidi had, she said "I would never do it again and I never recommend it for anyone." In 2010 she admitted to being 'being obsessed' reported the Daily Mail, at the time, but, as time has passed, she seems to have come to a few uncomfortable realisations. "I was definitely way in over my head. I'm glad it worked out and you can't really reverse time," she said, "I kind of wanted a few enhancements and then it kind of got out of hand. I wasn't told really the repercussions and what would happen, emotionally and psychically and the pain I would be in. I was kind of in shock."
Heidi's husband, Spencer Pratt, who also found fame on The Hills, and whom she married on the show, was against the excesses of surgery, particularly the famous 10-procedures-in-one-day that thrust her into the spotlight again for all the wrong reasons. "That was a big issue in our marriage," Heidi said. "We're good [now], we've been married for four years and we've been together for six - in Hollywood that's ancient! Until death do us part I would say. I honestly love him more and more every day... especially taking a step out of the spotlight. We've really been able to enjoy each without all the chaos." However, she does admit to missing the money the fame brought. Although, both fame and surgery are both very expensive, she said "I'm not sure [how much we lost], a lot. over a million or so."
