On 10 September 2018, Ryan Thomas was announced as the winner of the series, with Kirstie Alley as the runner-up.

On 14 September 2018, it was confirmed that this was the final series of Celebrity Big Brother to air on Channel 5 after their decision to axe the show. The series would later be revived on ITV1 in 2024 after ITV gained the rights to the series.

Production

The official logo was released on 18 July 2018 (18 years after the first episode of Big Brother aired on Channel 4) and featured an eye consisting of neon lights including lightning bolts coming out of a stormy background.

Creative team

Endemol confirmed that a new creative team had been formed ahead of the series. Paul Osborne, executive producer of Big Brother 7, returned to overlook the new series as creative director. Tamsin Dodgson was also announced to return as Executive Editor. Trevor Boris was also later hired as a senior producer after co-producing Big Brother Canada since its inception.

House

On 15 August 2018, the official house pictures were released. The house is inspired by Californian design, and has been dubbed "a house within a house". The technical layout of the building has also undergone a revamp since the previous series, and the entry staircase has been closed-off for the first time since Channel 5 took over the Big Brother format, in order to "keep the outside out" according to the creative director Paul Osbourne.

There is also an outdoor lounge at the bottom of the garden, similar to the one in Big Brother 10, compared to Channel 5's usual choice to incorporate the lounge within the main living area. The new living area has a large circular dining table at the centre, with a kitchen counter at one side. There is a leaf-print decor, complemented by palm-style plants and additional seating.

There is one bedroom, located behind the kitchen, with the palm theme continued with blue beds and pink accents. Adjoined to the sleeping quarters is the spare bathroom, which features a roll-top bath and vanity table. In the garden, the snug has been replaced by a "pool room", a plush pink haven where the housemates can relax on padded loungers. The nearby sliding doors open up onto a dual swimming pool and hot tub deck, with which a mini cocktail bar is nearby.

Stormy Daniels

In the months prior to the live launch, there was wide speculation that adult film star Stormy Daniels would enter the house. Despite the reports, she did not enter the house on launch night.

A Big Brother statement issued the following day read: "Stormy Daniels was booked to appear on the show several months ago and hours before the show was due to go live, informed the production team that she no longer wished to enter the house as previously agreed. Producers discussed a variety of options with her but were unable to agree any acceptable conditions for her entering the house. Our focus is now on making a brilliant series with our fantastic celebrities."

Daniels said she offered to appear on the show during the live launch to explain her absence, but was turned down by producers. She also said an interview on Loose Women where she was due to explain her side of the story was blocked by Channel 5.

On the 17 August edition of Bit on the Side, Clark-Neal explained that just five hours before the first live show, Daniels said she only wanted to appear on launch night and then leave. Big Brother tried to agree to a compromise, but nothing came of it. Clark-Neal also insisted that money was not a factor and there was no attempt from producers to try to manipulate Daniels to achieve a specific outcome.

Housemates

On Day 1, thirteen housemates entered the house during the launch show.

Summary

Day 1 Entrances
  • Kirstie, Ryan, Jermaine, Chloe, Rodrigo, Dan, Gabby, Hardeep, Ben, Roxanne, Sally, Natalie and Nick entered the house.
Twists
  • After entering the house, Kirstie became President of the Big Brother house. Ryan was then voted by viewers as vice-president. They were to live in The White House, separate from the other housemates, and take charge of the house as well as getting special privileges. Three housemates were to receive "presidential decrees" as decided by Kirstie and Ryan. Dan was only allowed to consume veggie shakes until further notice, Rodrigo lost his suitcase, and Ben was only allowed to have cold showers.
Day 2
Punishments
  • Rodrigo was given a formal and final warning for using unacceptable and racist language in a conversation the night before.
Day 3 Tasks
  • President Kirstie instructed her fellow housemates to build a wall, and then, led by Nick, to defend "Green Cards" whilst multiple intruders tried to climb the wall and steal them. Each green card stolen would occur a fail. At the end of the task they were told they had failed overall, and therefore received a basic shopping budget.
Day 4
Day 5 Nominations
  • President Kirstie was given the power to award one housemate with a "Presidential Pardon", granting them immunity from nominations, which took place later that day. She chose Jermaine.
  • The housemates nominated for the first time. Hardeep and Natalie received the most nominations and faced the public vote.
Day 7 Tasks
  • In "Truth Hunter", Sally was given a statement about each of her fellow housemates and had to decide whether it was true or false using her intuition. As Sally guessed the majority of statements correctly, she won the task and a plate of jellied eels as her reward.
Punishments
  • Natalie was given a formal warning for threatening and intimidating behaviour following an argument with Chloe.
Day 8 Tasks
  • Rodrigo was given a secret task from "Wendy the Washing Machine", where he had to get some gossip from another housemate and spill some cereal on their duvet. He was successful in this task and received a reward.
Day 9 Exits
  • Natalie was evicted from the house, receiving the fewest votes to save.
Day 10 Exits
  • Rodrigo was ejected from the house for unspecified reasons.
Tasks
  • The housemates were set their next shopping task from "The Public Eye", where they each had to perform on cue for the viewers to give their reactions to online. To pass the task, the housemates had to get no more than five fails.
Day 11
Punishments

Nominations
  • The housemates nominated for the second time. Chloe and Hardeep received the most nominations and faced the public vote.

Tasks
  • Kirstie took part in a British themed quiz.
Day 13 Tasks

Exits
  • Chloe was evicted from the house, receiving the fewest votes to save.
Day 14 Tasks
  • Housemates were asked to choose the dirtiest housemate, the cleverest housemate, and the hottest housemates to take part in a number of games. Big Brother then rewound and made them take part in them again, and again.
Punishments
  • Ryan was given a formal warning following an altercation with Roxanne. This was later revoked after the whole footage of incident proved there was no deliberate contact from Ryan.
Day 16 Twists
  • The housemates learned that Ben and Jermaine received the fewest votes in a public vote, and therefore face potential eviction. The remaining housemates each entered the Diary Room to vote for which of the two they would like to evict. At the end, as the voting was a tie, Big Brother gave the housemates one last chance to come to a decision. They ultimately decided to evict Ben.
Exits
  • Ben was evicted from the house following a house vote.
Day 17 Exits
  • In the early hours of the morning, Roxanne decided to voluntarily leave the house.
Tasks
  • The housemates were set their next weekly shopping task, where Dan, Gabby, Jermaine, Nick and Sally became the house pets, and Hardeep, Kirstie and Ryan became their owners.

Nominations
  • The housemates nominated for the third time. Hardeep and Jermaine received the most nominations and faced the public vote.
Day 19 Exits
  • Jermaine was evicted from the house, receiving the fewest votes to save.
Day 20 Nominations

Day 26 Exits
  • Gabby left the house in sixth place, Sally left the house in fifth place, Nick left the house in fourth place and Dan left the house in third place. It was then revealed that Ryan was the winner, leaving Kirstie as the runner-up.

Notes

  • ^Note 1 : On Day 5, Kirstie (as House President) was able to award immunity to one housemate of her choice. She chose Jermaine.
  • ^Note 2 : Following Chloe's eviction, viewers were given the power to nominate. A free poll on the Big Brother app allowed viewers to pick their favourite housemate. The two housemates with the fewest votes – Ben and Jermaine – were "nominated", and the remaining housemates were called to the diary room one-by-one to select which of the two housemates they would like to evict. After an initial tie of 4-4, Big Brother asked the housemates to vote again face-to-face by a show of hands. Nick switched his vote, and Ben was subsequently evicted on Day 16.
  • ^Note 3 : This week the housemates made one nomination, rather than two. Any housemate who received a nomination faced eviction.
  • ^Note 4 : For the final three days, the public were voting for who they wanted to win, rather than save.

Controversy

Racist language

Ofcom received over 1,000 complaints following Rodrigo Alves saying "nigger" twice on the first night. When describing fellow housemate Dan Osborne, Alves said that he was "too white for [his] taste", and he would prefer to have a "nigger boy". Rodrigo was given a formal and final warning by Big Brother regarding this incident, but Big Brother and Channel 5 were criticised by fans, with some of them questioning why he was not removed from the house immediately, using the example of Emily Parr's removal from the 2007 series to justify their reasons, and for the airing of the word on the highlights show. However, on Day 10, Rodrigo was removed from the house, after an unaired "further incident".

Roxanne Pallett's assault claim

Another controversy on the series came from Roxanne Pallett after she made a formal complaint that Ryan Thomas attacked her. While the footage showed Ryan "play fighting" with her through shadowboxing, she insisted that he punched her "like a boxer punches a bag" and told her housemates this version of events. She later slept in the spare bedroom after she claimed that she felt uncomfortable sleeping in the same room as him. Following the incident, Ryan was given a warning, but he insisted that he did it with "no malice". Roxanne continued to complain about him still being allowed in the house and later branded him a liar to her fellow housemates when he protested his innocence.

The incident was denounced by viewers as a deliberate attempt by Roxanne to destroy Ryan's reputation. Following this, 21 Emmerdale cast members criticised Roxanne for her behaviour, with Charley Webb branding her as "outrageous", as well as Sammy Winward tweeting that it was "a long time coming". Kelvin Fletcher, who played her on-screen husband Andy Sugden in the soap said that the incident was "calculated and manipulative beyond belief" whilst also showing support for Ryan. Within four days, Ofcom received over 25,000 complaints, making this the most complained incident regarding any Big Brother show since the race row in 2007. Furthermore, a petition launched to get her removed from panto work scheduled for Christmas reached over 4,000 signatures within two days. In the early hours of Day 17, Roxanne decided to voluntarily leave the house. Two days after her departure, on 3 September 2018, she returned for an interview with Willis, which was shown during that night's eviction show, where she apologised, stating she had made a "horrible mistake" but also stated she wanted to be "forgiven" for her actions. This incident has been called "punchgate" by the press.
