The 69-year-old radio host considered going to the Dignitas assisted dying clinic in Switzerland after being told his cancer had returned.
Following the latest round of nominations, five Celebrity Big Brother housemates face a double eviction on Friday (Aug 19). It was revealed last night (Aug 17) that James Whale, Lewis Bloor, Ricky Norwood and Samantha Fox would join ‘eternally’ nominated Stephen Bear in facing the next public vote. The housemates nominated each other face to face, with seven people choosing James, five for Lewis, three for Ricky and two for Samantha.
As for the other housemates, James Whale – who received more votes to save than Bear during Friday’s (Aug 12) eviction – is now on 8/1, with Renee Graziano at 10/1. Four housemates face eviction this week – Lewis, Heavy D, Renee and eternally nominated Bear – but who do you think will be sitting down for an interview with Emma Willis later this evening?
The latest series of Celebrity Big Brother has certainly delivered on the drama-front (as promised), with viewers initial housemate perceptions starting to shift after an explosive first week. Before even entering the house, Christopher Biggins emerged as the early favourite to win the series, but after his controversial comments about bisexual individuals, the presenter has suffered a drift from 15/8 to 9/4. Bookies report that Samantha Fox remains in the running for the title as she has moved from 7/1 to 6/1, alongside Stephen Bear who has also shortened his chance of being crowned winner from 16/1 to 10/1.
The Celebrity Big Brother house descended into chaos on Sunday (July 31) as the housemates were forced to evacuate the building after it almost went up in flames. There is a fine line between extra crispy bacon and authentically smoked (aka burnt) bacon – and the CBB housemates crossed it after a failed attempt to cook a full English breakfast. Heavy D, James Whale and Lewis Bloor were the main culprits behind the fry-up flop as the troublesome trio launched into a food fight shortly before breakfast, with various ingredients being pour over one another.
To be honest, we couldn’t ask for anything more from this year’s crop of Celebrity Big Brother contestants. Last night, viewers saw Saira Khan and James Whale undergo a pretty awkward exchange, after Saira asked him why people viewed him as a racist.
