Chloe Jasmine's been in the Celebrity Big Brother house before - watch the video

Celebrity Big Brother fans could be forgiven for feeling a bit of déjà vu when Chloe Jasmine strolled into the house - and not just because she was in The X Factor.

In fact, she's been in the CBB house before, performing backing vocals for Celebrity Big Brother 2006 winner Chantelle Houghton as a member of fictional girl group Kandy Floss during the show's wrap party.

Chloe Jasmine (in the orange skirt) certainly seemed to get into the performance of track 'I Want It Right Now', although it didn't exactly help her when she auditioned for The X Factor for the first time later that year.

Chantelle entered the Celebrity Big Brother house in 2006 with a mission to convince her celebrity housemates that she was a member of Kandy Floss, before 're-forming' the group for Ultimate Big Brother with housemates Victor Ebuwa and Nadia Almada.

Big Brother's Brian Belo: 'Helen Wood is not a legend'

Big Brother's Brian Belo believes that the other housemates are "petrified" of Helen Wood.

The eighth series winner left the house on Tuesday (June 23) by jumping over the wall, following further arguments with Helen and Marc O'Neill.

Speaking to Digital Spy and others, Brian said that more people in the house would have stood up to Helen if she wasn't so intimidating.

"I think the only other person to do it really was Danny," he commented. "That was the only other person.

"The other housemates are scared of Helen. They're absolutely petrified of her, so that's why they won't do it. And not only that - they're constantly thinking, 'Oh god, she might get to nominate and she might nominate me'. I knew it was my place because they were all too timid, really."

Brian continued: "More than anything, I was happy that Danny stuck up for me, and

Big Brother Brian Belo interview: 'Helen should have been kicked out for what she said'

Big Brother got pretty intense last night, as one argument too far pushed legendary housemate Brian Belo to climb over the wall and escape from the compound.

Brian got on the phone to chat to reporters this morning, so read on to find out what he had to say about his big escape, why he had to go, what he thinks of Helen and Marc (and the special treatment they're getting), his romance with Jade and why his Big Brother journey is now over...

Brian's Big Exit

Brian, do you regret walking out of the house?

"No, I don't regret leaving there. I think it got to the point where it was like a pressure cooker and I couldn't get away from the obvious two so I knew it was my time to leave, really. I didn't want the situation to escalate and I didn't feel myself there so I

Alex Sibley, The Jungle Cats: The 8 Big Brother housemates we'd love to return

Big Brother does love a twist, so this Friday three former housemates will be returning to join the 'fake evictee' in a Secret Lair. And goodness, did that spark some conversations at DS Towers about who should return!

Of course, some of our picks have been on Ultimate Big Brother, but we're going to ignore that (we're not sure it's canon when Ulrika Jonsson can be dubbed an 'ultimate' housemate, to be honest). And while there are obviously plenty of amazing contestants from years gone by, we couldn't choose them all. But below are just some of our choices for Friday's big twist - let us know who you want to throw back in!

Nick 'Nasty Nick' Bateman (Big Brother 1)

Series one was something of an untainted golden era for Big Brother. The show was yet to be overrun with perma-tanned attention seekers and was a genuinely fascinating human experiment:

Katie Hopkins: Nadia Sawalha was a bully

Katie Hopkins has branded Nadia Sawalha a ''bully'' and accused her of being arrogant in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house. The outspoken newspaper columnist clashed with Nadia throughout their time on the reality TV show and Katie claims they didn't just clash because Nadia was friends with her nemesis Perez Hilton but also because Nadia couldn't live with someone with different opinions to her her. During an appearance on 'Loose Women' - on which Nadia is a panellist - Katie said: ''I think one of your other Loose Women Nadia did a pretty good job of being a bully in the

Hopkins is out: 8 controversial things she's said since leaving CBB

She's been out of the Celebrity Big Brother house for less than 24 hours, but Katie Hopkins has already settled back into her controversial ways.

Speaking to reporters this morning, the runner-up shared her opinion on topics as diverse as Katie Price, being called a bully, Perez and, well, more on Katie Price.

Here are 8 of Hopkins's golden nuggets of wisdom following last night's Celebrity Big Brother final.

1. Hopkins on "dull" Katie Price walking away with the winner's title

"No, there's absolutely no part of Katie Price that deserved to win. She was dull as hell. She said she was boring as hell, she told Eamonn Holmes that she didn't deserve her fee – I reinforced that for her and told her she's been utterly turgid.

"She has no opinions on anything, no conversation to offer, and I frankly found her to be a very tedious individual."

2. Hopkins on meeting Perez Hilton

CBB's Katie Hopkins: Is she being sincere or putting on an act to win?

We obviously had our reservations about Katie Hopkins before she entered the Celebrity Big Brother house, even though we'd long stopped listening to the 'controversial' comments she shrills on about.

We have to admit though that she has been a thoroughly entertaining housemate to watch - particularly during her humorous exchanges with Perez Hilton ("No isn't an option? What if you asked me suck your n*b?") and some genuinely funny, self-deprecating moments: ("Mine's [my vagina] like a battered old daffodil.")

While we're all for calling someone out for "being a tw*t", as Katie so succinctly put it during a Diary Room chat with Big Brother last week, we agreed with Nadia Sawalha when she pointed out that Katie Hopkins weakens her argument when she insults other people's physical attributes.

The Loose Women panelist was referring to an incident in the house when she had overheard Katie commenting on Nadia's "big,

CBB's Perez Hilton: 'Nadia Sawalha chose the path of kindness'

Perez Hilton has expressed his disappointment at the reaction Nadia Sawalha received because of their Celebrity Big Brother friendship.

Speaking on Loose Women, the showbiz blogger praised Sawalha for "choosing the path of kindness".

"One of the things that did disappoint me when I got in the outside world was hearing and seeing some of the negative reactions that [Nadia] got for having a good heart and choosing the path of kindness," he said.

"I'm happy to own and stand by everything I said and did. It made me feel not so good to see how people were treating her."

Hilton added: "The Perez that Nadia got to know is the real Perez. I didn't want to share the real Perez with many of the housemates, as I don't care about the majority of the housemates, and they didn't want to get to know me.

"Why would I open myself up

Perez Hilton: 'Big Brother feels like a huge failure to me'

Perez Hilton has said that if he could go back in time he would not have appeared on Celebrity Big Brother.

Speaking after his eviction from the house yesterday, the celebrity blogger said that his stint on the show felt like a "failure".

"I'm feeling very tired but even more thrilled to be out of the house!" Hilton said.

"It feels like a huge failure to me, because if I could go back in time I would not have done it."

Asked why he put up his 'Perez Show' wall during his time in the house, he said: "It was a necessity. I didn't put the real Perez away. Most housemates didn't want to take the time to get to know me."

Of whether he would stay in touch with Nadia Sawalha, Katie Price and Alicia Douvall, Hilton said: "Absolutely. I have already been in touch with Nadia. She reaffirmed

CBB's Cami: "Perez is like '80s porn, you can't take your eyes off it"

Cami Li compared Perez Hilton to "'80s porn - bad, but you can't take your eyes off it" following her shock eviction from last night's Celebrity Big Brother (February 2).

The Miami model was nominated alongside Keith Chegwin, Perez Hilton and Katie Price in the show's shock twist which saw her leave the house on Monday night..

Cami Li also criticised former housemate Nadia Sawalha for being "consumed by Perez's energy", and was cynical as to whether the Loose Women panelist had still liked the showbiz blogger towards the end of her time in the house.

Speaking to Digital Spy and others about her sudden exit, she revealed: "It was expected. I thought I was going to be next to go. We all know Perez's arse ain't going."

On whether she was surprised that the public had kept her in for so long, she joked: "Yeah, They're a tortured bunch.

The actress and presenter lost to Katie Hopkins, Keith Chegwin and Perez Hilton in the public vote tonight (January 30). Emma Willis also announced that another housemate will leave on Monday (February 2).

Nadia appeared happy when Willis read out her name. She smiled: "I'm coming home," before exiting the house to a mix of boos and cheers from the crowd.

Speaking to Willis, Nadia revealed her delight at leaving and said: "Did you see the housemates cheering for me? I was going, 'What, am I out?' I can't believe it's happened.

"I've got odd socks on, my pants are the wrong way round - I've done everything I can to leave."

Nadia was negative about her experience in the house, but still admitted that she loves Big Brother now more than ever.

"I'm a massive fan of Big Brother.

CBB's Perez on Katie Hopkins: "I've taken the power back"

Perez Hilton declares to Big Brother that he has "taken the power back" from Katie Hopkins on tonight's Celebrity Big Brother (January 30).

Speaking in the Diary Room, an elated Perez describes himself as "powerful and happy and calm and feisty and fun"

"It's a great feeling to feel that there's less negative energy being aimed at me and to feel like people are now truly seeing Katie Hopkins for who she is - a backstabbing, two-faced bitch," the blogger says.

"I've taken the power back. I've always realised the power is within me... Now that I've taken my power back, I feel so powerful and happy and calm and feisty and fun.

"I feel like the old me, which is the new me, but I'm just me. Me, me, me, me, me!" he exclaims.

Celebrity Big Brother: Keith Chegwin cries after nominations

Celebrity Big Brother star Keith Chegwin ended up in tears after being nominated last night.

Keith picked up five nominations - from Katie Hopkins, Cami Li, Kavana, Michelle Visage and Calum Best - and will face eviction from the house on Friday (January 30).

Speaking after the house had nominated, Keith suggested that it is just "part of the show" although he did admit he was surprised to pick up a nomination from Calum.

Katie Price suggested that Keith will survive the eviction, while Nadia Sawalha told him that he has been "absolutely true and authentic", adding that the other housemates don't like him or Perez Hilton because they're entertaining and "steal the limelight".

Nadia later discussed Keith with Perez, saying he has "just had a wobble".

However, Perez pointed out that members of the public may agree with the reasons that Keith was nominated, saying that "people that are watching

CBB's Katie Hopkins: 'I'm the haggard old git that tells it straight'

Katie Hopkins describes herself as a "haggard old git that tells it straight" during a frank admission in the Diary Room on Celebrity Big Brother tonight (January 29).

The columnist and fellow housemates are coming to terms with Perez Hilton's dramatic return to the house following his staged walkout as part of a secret task set by Big Brother.

Speaking in the Diary Room, she tells Big Brother that the blogger managed a "relatively good effort at stirring the pot yesterday" and upset housemates, especially Nadia Sawalha and Calum Best.

On last night's show (January 28), Perez blabbed to Nadia that Calum and Michelle Visage had complained about her "heavy food" and took umbrage at her "control issues".

Katie Hopkins continues that housemates need to "get perspective" and accept that they're not all good friends, but rather just a group of people co-habiting.

When asked by Big Brother what her position in the house is,

CBB's Perez & Katie H timeline of wrath: "Perez is a bit like thrush"

Katie Hopkins and Perez Hilton took their tumultuous relationship to new levels of unrestraint as a tongue-waggling Perez chased a terrified Katie around the house on Celebrity Big Brother last night (January 28).

Perez dramatically re-entered the house after living in a secret abode following his staged walkout, and "he's sweating horribly," was the first thing Katie H was finally able to muster.

But before long, he was trying to lick and kiss her face as she brushed him off and dubbed him a "rodent" and the pictures of the pair were priceless.

He offered a ceasefire, but alas, Kaite H would not relent.

We celebrate their ridiculous war of words so far with our timeline below:

"He could work on toning his body up and toning his voice down"

On the first night of Celebrity Big Brother, Katie H was cast under by an evil Big Brother curse, which meant

Who faces eviction on Celebrity Big Brother? Nominations revealed!

Housemates had to nominate face-to-face in the house's communal area, by placing pictures of the two celebrity contestants they selected face down on the floor.

In scenes to be aired on tonight's show (January 29), Big Brother revealed that the housemates who will be facing the public vote in Friday's live eviction (January 30) are Nadia Sawalha, Katie Hopkins and Keith Chegwin.

After being voted by viewers to face eternal nomination, Perez Hilton automatically faces the public vote. Despite this, he was still allowed to make his two nominations.

When Big Brother revealed Perez's name, the showbiz blogger screamed: "Send me home, send me home!"

Nadia, who faced the public vote last week along with Katie H, told a surprised Keith: "Oh Keith, you'll be able to do the eviction shuffle. You've not done it yet."

Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight (January 29) at 9pm on Channel 5.
