Celebrity Big Brother is back, and with the thirteenth series ready and waiting to kick off on our screens – we’re asking one question. What makes Launch Night great? Let’s take a look back at the past launches…
Celebrity Big Brother 1: The Dreaded LIVE Nominations
With the first Celebrity Big Brother being just 8 days long, Big Brother threw in launch night nominations! Eek! The Housemates all nominated Anthea Turner and Chris Eubank for eviction. Do you love to see live nominations on Launch night?
Celebrity Big Brother 2: Build-A-Bed!
Big Brother decided to make his second batch of Celebrities work a little harder by making them build their own beds! Only one of the two bedrooms had to build their beds however. Do you like to see Celebrities get hard at work on Launch to build their furniture for the series?
Celebrity Big Brother 3: Money, Money, Money
Celebrities are usually paid a set fund for appearing on the series – but this series saw a £50,000 prize fund brought in as Big Brother spiced up the House! Hang on – Celebrities lounging around a House for 18 days for one of them to walk out with an extra £50,000? Great tactics there Big Brother, encourage the game playing?
Celebrity Big Brother 4: Non-Celebrity Big Brother Housemate!
Of course, who could forget one of the best launch night twists we’ve had on Celebrity Big Brother? In 2006, Chantelle entered the Celebrity Big Brother House as a non-celebrity Housemate but was told by Big Brother that she would have to pretend and convince the other Housemates that she was a real celebrity! If she failed this mission she would be evicted on Day 4 of the series. Luckily, Chantelle managed to convince the others and went on to win the show. Great work Chantelle!
Celebrity Big Brother 5: Meet The Family
For the fifth Celebrity Big Brother, it was announced on Launch Night by Davina that a family would be moving into the House on Day 3. On Day 3, Jade Goody moved into the Big Brother House with her boyfriend and her mum! What a difference. The Housemates were split into two Houses – Luxury with Jade and her family and the servants quarters.
Celebrity Big Brother 6: Race to the Last Bed
Following on from the summer series, the last Housemate to get a bed on Launch would become the Head Of Household! This Housemate was Terry. Terry was given a special luxury bedroom and was the only Housemate to nominate for the first eviction

Celebrity Big Brother 8: Diva Forever
On the launch of Celebrity Big Brother 8, Big Brother called asked one Housemate to come to the Diary Room. The Housemate was Kerry Katona. She was given a secret mission to become the biggest diva in the House. On Day 2 the Housemates would vote on who they thought the biggest diva was. If Kerry failed she would be nominated for eviction and would have to nominate two others to join her. She failed! Poor Kerry!
Celebrity Big Brother 9: Earpiece Blitz
Natalie Cassidy was the first Housemate to enter the Big Brother House on Launch Night and was given a mission by Big Brother. She was given a earpiece in which Big Brother would give her instructions that she had to carry out. Every time she completed a task she won a case for the Housemates. She won all but one case. Poor Romeo!
Celebrity Big Brother 10: Soap Drama
Julie Goodyear and Cheryl Ferguson were the first Housemates to enter the House. They were called to The Diary Room and given a mission to create as much Drama in the House as possible through tasks given through a secret earpiece. They completed the task and won a soap-themed party in the garden!
Celebrity Big Brother 11: Basement Blues

As the first Housemates, they were the ones who decided who moved into the main House and lived in luxury and who moved into Big Brother’s basement. They were shown each Housemates profile VT and had to decide. Rylan and Frankie decided to move into the basement in the end after sending the rest of the Housemates to their locations. They moved into the luxury House as Speidi moved into the basement.
