Celebrity Big Brother: 3 men we’d love to see on this year’s show

| 05.01.2015

It may feel like it was just last week we were all marvelling at Gary Busey’s devilish antics but Celebrity Big Brother is back already.

The line up of players trying to emulate last year’s winner Busey is yet to be announced but the rumour mill has gone into overdrive with a veritable who’s who ( no really, who are some of these people) said to be entering the house.

We can’t wait for the official announcement so here are three men we’d love to see on our screens this year and their odds to win the first instalment of Celebrity Big Brother 2015.

Brian Harvey @ 12/1

Harvey hit the highest of pop music highs in the 1990s as part of Walthamstow-based four-piece East 17 but his career since departing the band is best summed up by his most recent solo effort – Going Backwardz!

Check out the disastrous auto-tune effort here:

Bad luck has played a part in Harvey’s downfall with jacket potato–related car accidents and botched comeback attempts all present and correct. The east Londoner was one of the original bad boys of UK pop and will certainly entertain – but let’s hope his stint doesn’t inspire any more of this …

Gordon Hill aka The Wealdstone Raider @ 14/1

Only in Britain can a clearly inebriated local football fan with a penchant for hurling abuse at rival fans be celebrated with such vigour.

That said, the Raider clearly has a certain charm as evidenced by his run to number five in the Christmas charts.

Just seeing what he’ll make of the real celebs and how he’d interact with them would be worth the entrance fee alone. And should the Raider ever ask Keith Chegwin if he “wants sum” it would probably break the internet.

On the off chance you’ve been living under a rock here’s what made the Raider famous:

Keith Chegwin @ 7/1

The former Sale of the Century and Big Breakfast presenter has been quiet of late with some questionable TV jobs – Naked Jungle anyone? – following his candid admission of being an alcoholic on This Morning.

A memorable turn in Ricky Gervais’ Extras showed he still has enough star quality and self awareness to appeal to the masses and he’s been installed as the early favourite to win.

Remind yourself of Cheggers’ presenting style in Frank Carson’s house – but not his dressing room:
