Celebrity Big Brother




Gemma Atkinson

Gemma’s first acting role was playing Lisa Hunter and she was a popular character in Hollyoaks for five years. Proving her credentials as an actress, she was central to some of the shows more intense storylines- sympathetically addressing the topics of self-harm and bereavement.

Her decision to leave Hollyoaks was a difficult one but she has relished the challenges that Hollyoaks: in the City had to offer her, “I had a fantastic four and a half years on Hollyoaks but it felt right to move on and try something new. Filming scenes for the new show has been great fun and the cast are fantastic. The new show will definitely be more risqué than Hollyoaks and fans are in for a treat as we see a much sexier side to Lisa!”

Celebrity Big Brother
Celebrity Big Brother 2007 was the fifth series of the United Kingdom reality television series Celebrity Big Brother, a spin-off of Big Brother. The series was broadcast on Channel 4 in the UK (also on S4C in Wales), and involved a number of celebrities referred to as 'housemates', who live in the Big Brother House with no contact with the outside world. In recent series, the show's producers have offered celebrities money to appear on Celebrity Big Brother.

Celebrity Big Brother 2007 started on 3 January 2007, and ran for 26 days. The launch show peaked at 8.2 million viewers, making it the second most-watched launch in Big Brother history. It was the first Celebrity Big Brother series to be shown in the 16:9 widescreen format and the final Celebrity series to be held in the Elstree compound with the regular series later in the year being the final one overall.

The house-mates try to win a cash prize by avoiding periodic, usually publicly-voted, evictions from the house. The "real life soap" was invented by the Dutchman John de Mol and developed by his production company, Endemol. It has been a prime-time hit in almost 70 different countries.
