This is an amazing series of CBB - I'm already hooked! Aren't you?

In my last blog, I said Janice Dickinson was hilarious. But last night, she came across as dreadful.

I love Jenna Jameson, and I think Janice was SO rude taking Jenna's kosher food out of the fridge and eating it - even though two housemates had told her the situation!

The way she munched on the celery stick made me feel sick! How obnoxious! She thinks she is so much better than the other housemates... Watching Gail Porter and Sherrie Hewson run around after her made me nauseous.

Why the f*** would you behave like that? Why does she always make everything about her?

Jenna was 100% right and conducted herself perfectly. She was given a separate fridge so she could honour her religion's laws and Janice showed no respect.

When janice told Stevi Ritchie "I'm really famous", I wanted to throw my glass of wine at the TV. And was it just me or did she imply that Gail had cancer? So ignorant!

I would lock horns with Janice if I was in the house with her.

So overnight I changed my mind about Janice. But also Chloe Jasmine... It's funny how fickle you can be while watching Big Brother!

I said I was loving Chloe, but that was before I watched her crying because she can't have sex with fiancé Stevi in the house.

I was cringing so badly - is she for real? I mean most woman cry because they DO have to have sex LOL!

They've only been in the house a few days - wait until they're married! It all seems so contrived! "I love you." "No, I love you more."

Grow up guys; this is not cute. Stevi telling the nation she went to his room with no knickers on?? I just don't believe all this.

I'm enjoying the bromance between Austin Armacost and James Hill. I love how James was mortified when Austin appeared to take the friendship a bit far by stripping naked in bed together and asking James to rub his injured leg...

Only on CBB would this stuff happen! James is coming across fantastically well. If it was normal Big Brother, he could be my early winner. I'm not sure he's well known enough to win the celebrity one, though.

Gail Porter, meanwhile, is just a delight, isn't she? Saying that she would wear a wig to get more TV work after losing all her hair made my heart swell. She is a tough cookie and deserves to do well.

Nicola McLean's CBB Blog: 'Farrah Abraham is a VILE woman'

Nicola McLean blogs Celebrity Big Brother exclusively for Reveal.

I have to start with Farrah Abraham... I truly CANNOT stand this woman! She's only been in the house for 48 hours, but the Teen Mum star has managed to have two rows!

This time, the vile woman's outburst was aimed at The Apprentice star James Hill after she claimed he "looked" at her...

James handled it so well, though. He was amazing. I don't know how he kept his cool with her. He did say he finds her claims, tone and presence offensive, but she didn't listen and just got even more aggressive.

I don't believe for a second that James was looking at her - she is an UGLY person!

She does seem to have sorted her differences out with Natasha Hamilton, though, which upsets me as I wanted that cat fight to continue.

Did Janice Dickson REALLY say she wrote the movie Gia with Angelina Jolie? This can't be true, surely?

That fight with Austin Armacost about gay rights was SO funny. Janice is as mad as a box of frogs and I take my original comments back about her; she is hilarious.

She was fuming when the girls were having a gossip about her famous conquests. When she called them chihuahuas, I laughed out loud.

Tila Tequila was a fantastic housemate and I believe she would have brought so much to the house. Gutting! She was certainly persistent with James Hill, even if her behaviour was a bit weird. If it was him doing that to her, it could've been deemed harassment.

I'm also loving Fatman Scoop. He is so funny - the conversation about the dreaded "N" word was interesting, but not really a convo for the CBB house.

The task really didn't interest me. Drinking disgusting things feels "done". We have been there, done that. I ate testicles in the I'm A Celeb jungle years ago!

I love watching Chloe Jasmine and Stevi Ritchie together. I have met him and he is lovely. I never expected to like her, but I really do. I love her voice... I'm girl crushing on her in a big way!

Celebrity Big Brother is back and, I for one, could not be happier! I'm kissing goodbye to my social life for the next three weeks as I look forward to my date with the world's most famous house.

I have to be honest - you'd ALL expect nothing less - when I first saw the line-up I was a little bemused... But I have full faith in Big Brother and these characters were contracted because they are FAB.

The first night didn't disappoint with Atomic Kitten's Natasha Hamilton already at war with Teen Mum Farrah Abraham, and Austin Armacost stirring the pot.

He's going to be a great housemate - totally bitchy and willing to do anything for airtime. I mean even flirting with Tila!

As I've gone there, let's go there... I'm going to be so unpopular with this, but hey what else is new? I don't understand why Tila was removed. She didn't say anything derogatory in the house, and if Big Brother allowed Helen Wood after her past and present comments?

Tila said something years ago - which she has since apologised for - and I therefore think she was wrongly evicted.

So last night's recap episode (Friday 28 August) saw the housemates enter the house and take part in their first challenge, which the UK won.

When the Brits had to name three people to put in jail and miss a party, Natasha was the first to speak up, saying: "Farrah is not coming because she's a sore loser."

It's clear the pair didn't get off to a good start but I'm still at a loss to why Farrah took such offence to Natasha saying she had watched her? Surely that's a compliment?

I think Farrah is just a b**** who thinks way to much of herself! She came across like a petulant child. I would 200% come to blows with her if I was in there.

Last night, Bobby Davro and Janice Dickinson entered the house and Bobby became ruler of the house after they went head to head.

I've met Janice and found her very strange. One minute she is nice, the next she is hateful... But she will make amazing viewing.

Although I must admit, she bores me and I don't find her funny. I actually find her annoying.

So far, I am loving Jenna Jameson. I had a night out with her years ago, and she was so much fun. I'm really hoping the public give her a chance.

I also think Fat Man Scoop will be a great housemate. He was SO funny in the tower trying to demand Big Brother release them for medical reasons!

CBB: Gail Porter

Gail Porter... Isn't she just so lovely? I really hope she is strong enough for the house because, trust me, that place isn't for the vulnerable...

She has battled addictions and is not long out of rehab. But I think she could win it.

Meanwhile, Sherrie Hewson seems nice - and her facelift is healing well!

James Hill is nice to look at and boy does he know it! He has been trying to get my friend (I won't say who, or she'd kill me) to go on a date with him, but I think she made the right decision not to go. He would spend the whole time trying to find a reflection!

Can't wait until tonight - come on the UK!

So like all good things, it had to come to an end! I was hoping for one last twist that would see Emma Willis put all the evicted housemates back in and, as a result, extend Celebrity Big Brother once again. Sadly, this didn't happen. I'm going to miss everyone in that house. They have all been part of making it, in my opinion, the best CBB to date.

So Jimbo's done it! Jim Davidson is our winner of Celebrity Big Brother 2014 and what a difference a year has made for him. Last year, Jim was arrested before entering the house but now his name has been cleared and he has turned public opinion. Speaking to Emma after he was crowned the winner, Jim described himself as being "damaged". He told her: "I'm slightly damaged because of that, and all you've got to do is be truthful, and truth will conquer all." I love Jim - he was not only a fantastic housemate but so deserved the win and hopefully can move on.

I really don't think he hates Linda, although she really doesn't like him... I think Jim will be surprised to hear her side of events and the fact she felt such anger towards him. Speaking about Linda, Jim said: "It takes two hands to clap, takes two to argue. She's a fantastic artist, I really do admire her, we did clash a bit, but I can't wait for her to buy me a pint." Not sure that will happen, Jim.....

I loved it that Tulisa was at the house to see Dappy come second. "Never in a million years did I think I'd come second," he said. "Me coming into this house has helped me to separate Costas from Dappy." What a fantastic housemate the N Dubz singer has been. I think he has shocked a lot of people as he is just so loveable! I also think his and Jim's relationship helped the public warm to both of them. After Costas spoke about his dad dying suddenly, I sat in floods of tears as he said about Jim: "He taught me so much in the house, I'll call him dad for the rest of my life."

Sam, who came fifth, and Ollie, who came third, seem to be on the same page regarding moving forward with their relationship, although they were both coy with Emma and didn't give much away #watchthisspace.

Luisa did so well to be the last girl standing and she was my favourite housemate because she made such good TV. She was just so interesting to watch. As a very outspoken woman myself, I love how Luisa just doesn't care what people think!! Good for her. She might have been booed but, at the end of the day, people picked up the phone and voted her to come fourth. She should be proud!

Casey has been at the the heart of the main storyline this year and I think she is a lovely girl! I love glamour models (obvs!) and Casey did us proud. If only she hadn't gone back and fallen for Lee's charm or offered him a blow job though... I think the public would have placed her a lot higher if she hadn't, although she made the final and, as she said, no other model has done that before!

And there it is - the end. I'm gutted and today I will wear black and mourn out of respect for 12 housemates who really have made the last three weeks so entertaining!!!

Tonight I will raise my glass to Jim - a fitting winner of an amazing series.

Nicola McLean's CBB Blog: Casey's mum knows best when it comes to Lee!

Tonight's episode was an emotional one but it also provided me with my favourite quote of the series! After we saw Lee being booted out in a secret eviction and watched the housemates' reactions, I laughed out loud when Luisa said: "One minute he's sitting on the sofa, the next he's f***ed off through the clock! It's like f***ing Narnia!" That, my friends, is my favourite quote so far!

Before Lee left it was back to one of the best tasks ever. At the chime of the clock who would walk in? Surely, after Jasmine's return things couldn't get much worse for Lee - or could they? When Casey's mum came through the clock, Casey started crying straight away. Her mum Kim was amazing and she sounded like Pamela from Gavin and Stacey. Kim made me laugh and she told Casey that she was proud of her.

But things were about to take a turn for the worst, as Mummy Casey said: "Listen to what I'm going to say to you. Please listen to me carefully. Keep away from Lee." She went on: "Honestly, darling, he tells you one thing and then behind your back he tells housemates other things, and when he's in the Diary Room he says you get on his t*ts and you won't leave him alone. He's mugging you off, darling, he has mugged you off." She doesn't hold back does she?! And let's be honest, mama knows best! OMG, Lee looked like he wanted the floor of the Big Brother house to open up and swallow him! As soon as Casey's mum left, the housemates rallied around her as Lee joked: "I don't think your mum's the biggest fan of me..." I was actually shocked that there was no confrontation from Casey. If I'm honest, after hearing what her mum had to say, I thought she would be demanding some answers from Lee - but no!! She just cried...

Jim Davidson's wife and daughter visit CBB house - 28 January 2014

How stunning is Jim's daughter ? She's a real beauty and I think she will have as many fans as her comical dad. After she visited her dad in the Celebrity Big Brother house, It was nice to watch Jim so emotional. His wife clearly has a good sense of humour too, as she walked in carrying some ironed shirts for Jim and handed them to Luisa! Just as I predicted, now Linda has gone Jim and Luisa are getting on so much better. Luisa even told Jim she always liked him and that maybe Linda's views might have swayed her thoughts.

It was great to finally see the ice maiden melt when Luisa's mum came in. She handed Luisa a picture that her daughter Dixie had made for mummy and there wasn't a dry eye in the house. Luisa's mum was great, telling her outspoken daughter to keep being her and that everyone was proud of her. She then went and kissed Jim. The ladies love Jim. Maybe now we can understand why he has been married so many times!

So after Lee left, the housemates carried on having a few drinks and Dappy decided he was going to be wild in the bedroom. He said, "I want to do something crazy" as he stripped completely naked and ran across the bedroom covering his sizeable manhood with a cap! He then ran out in the freezing temperatures and jumped into the small pool, as Jim and Ollie burst into fits of laughter. Luisa was just as amused and, although she found a towel to warm Dappy up, she seemed more interested in trying to have a look at his apparently impressive manhood! These two are so funny together, I hope they stay friends!

"I'm back!" Those words will make me laugh for a long time. Jasmine was so funny when she walked back into the Big Brother house last night. She made her entrance during the grandfather clock task, where the celebrities had to stand silent and frozen in time as their friends and loved ones emerged from a giant clock. Jasmine proved what a great booking she was for the show when she said: "Hi Casey, I have a few things to say to you. When Lee and I got together, he said he really liked me and saw you as a friend. As soon as I left, you threw yourself at him. It's quite embarrassing really." Casey's face along with the others' was a picture. Jasmine then turned her attention to Lee, asking him if he was aware he was leading Casey on. Lee just didn't seem to understand what he had done wrong - he just doesn't get it. I was left shouting at the telly!

Sam's very glamorous mum also entered the house to tell Sam how proud she is of her and how much she loves her. It was lovely to see. I have been reading about how ill Sam has been during her stay in the CBB house, so it must have lifted her spirits. I just don't understand why this has not been shown on TV though? It would explain why Sam has been so quiet, bless her. Sam's mum seemed keen for a romance between her daughter and Ollie! Walking over to Ollie, she gave him a kiss on the cheek and told him: "Everyone loves you too. You're doing amazing!" How sweet!!

The best part of this task was when the clock chimed and Blue jumped out singing 'One Love'. It was amazing and I was dancing around my front room! They were hilarious. When Duncan kissed Luisa on the lips and told Lee that Jasmine really likes him I thought: "This is the best episode ever!"

After Blue left, we saw Lee stressing out because he'd obviously heard that his American girl was still interested. I think he realised there and then that he had messed up. Casey was also left devastated, thinking she has shamed her family. I couldn't take her seriously though, as she put huge black sunglasses on to hide her eyes. She is fitting in to the celebrity world easily! Jim was really nice to Casey again, he reassured her that she had done nothing wrong.

Meanwhile, Lee went to the diary room to give a message to Jasmine... He told Big Brother: "I just want to speak to Jasmine. Everything I said about her has not changed. I like Casey as a friend, and that's all it is. I don't really give a f*** what anyone else says." I laughed out loud as the clever producers played 'Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word' while Lee made his public declaration of love. Haha!

In a twist that's never been done before, the celebrities were surprised with a secret eviction. With the frozen task still in full swing, the grandfather clock chimed and this time the visitor was Celebrity Big Brother host Emma, who told the housemates the news of the eviction! That came as a surprise to them, but it wasn't a surprise when Lee got the boot. I think he was very lucky not to have a crowd, as booing is never nice, and I don't believe he would have got a warm reception! Emma was, as always, amazing and really took her time with Lee as she tried to make him see his mistakes. But he still didn't seem to quite understand how kissing, cuddling and maybe more(?!) is wrong if you don't like the other person in that way, especially when they like you!

Prior to Linda Nolan's Friday night eviction, Jim Davidson woke up to see a big camera in the living area. Big Brother sympathised that, after being without their phones for weeks, they would all be missing social media. So housemates would spend the day doing what celebrities do best for their next task - taking selfies!

Ollie Locke finally had a few harsh words and they were aimed towards Luisa Zissman. No shock there then... He told Big Brother in the Diary Room: "Everyone's been lovely to me. Luisa can be cold and argumentative, I don't trust Luisa. She's snappy."

He went on to say: "I don't know what she is saying when I leave the room. She can't help herself. She loves to be centre of attention and cause arguments."

Ollie is, of course, entitled to this opinion, but I'm a big fan of Luisa as a housemate. Her and Jim have made this year's series! After Ollie's rant, he was asked to pose for a selfie with the housemate he trusts the least and, after Luisa said it was okay for him to pick her, they puckered up for a photo.

We were then given the pleasure of Lee Ryan and Casey Batchelor in the bed again... I just felt sick watching them - it's the most boring romance ever!

Jim was then asked to take a picture with the housemate he thinks is the fakest and he picked Luisa. She happily posed, but then said she is the most real and I agree with her. Love her or hate her, she has been very honest!

Housemates then had to pick the most attractive contestants to pose in their swimwear. Casey was keen, but Lee had to be forced. He believes Ollie is the most attractive housemate, not him. And that's the first time I've agreed with Lee - LOL! We then saw another cuddle session from the 'friends with benefits' Lee and Casey. They totally put me off my wine when he told Casey and Dappy that he couldn't get up because he had "gags" (an erection). Casey looked so pleased with herself - gross!

Big Brother were full of tasks in this episode and the next one was genius. The 'Words of Wisdom' task where housemates had to talk to Jim about their problems within the house! Linda was raging and wouldn't take part!

Jim did really well and actually proved himself to be quite the agony uncle. I realised last night how quickly things change in the house. At one point, everyone has a chance of winning. Look at Casey, for example. She came in unknown as an underdog, then fell for Lee. But when he messed her around, we all felt for her! Then when Jasmine left the house, it's been unpleasant watching Casey and Lee in the toilets with taps on etc. And, just like that, I don't think she is in with a chance of winning anymore! But let's see if that changes as tonight's episode sees Jasmine return to the house to confront them...

So, after Linda was evicted, we saw Luisa and Jim actually having a chat. I think these two will get on a lot better now that Linda has gone! There are reports today (Sunday 26 January) that Linda self-harmed in the house and, if this is true, I'm glad she went. She needs support from her family.

Dappy was so funny last night. I really like him. He was trying to change his trousers in the bedroom, but was too drunk! So, Luisa came in to help but could only comment on his infamous manhood! Jim was then seen showing a softer side putting Dappy to bed and making him lie on his front! I think there will be a few sore heads in tonight's show and, with a secret eviction, I can hardly wait!

Come back tomorrow for Nicola's thoughts on tonight's show (26 January), which airs at 9pm on Channel 5.

So last night was the fifth eviction from this year's Celebrity Big Brother and my prayers were answered - Linda Nolan left the house! I don't think I could have stood another day of her bitching, moaning and spiteful looks...

Before we saw her evicted, it was time to catch up with what our famous housemates had been up to in the house. Day 21 and their recent face-to-face nominations were still playing on their minds. Dappy made his peace with Linda, but I don't understand why he apologised. You HAVE to nominate someone and why shouldn't it have been her? I certainly would have if I was in there!

Luisa Zissman is definitely one of the most argumentative housemates we have ever seen. But I keep asking myself: is she just honest? During last night's episode (24 January), we saw her telling Ollie he is "one of life's victims". She was left outraged when Ollie spoke about the disagreement they'd had the night before. He compared her to his university bullies. Luisa then branded Ollie "self indulgent". I think Luisa is being honest and I hate the way the word bully is just thrown around. I don't think Luisa has bullied anyone in the house and is just brutally honest and I don't see a problem with that.

Then in the garden with Ollie and Sam, Luisa then went on to say: "You have to respect that different people in life have different opinions. I am not used to people like you. I have never met a man like you in my life." Again, I agree with Luisa. I just don't understand how Ollie has no ill feelings towards anybody. I think it must be a game plan. Go into CBB, get my fee and have no opinion on anything. While that will make you popular with most of the viewers, it also makes you very boring.

TOWIE star Sam Faiers stuck up for Ollie when she said: "You can also have an opinion and keep it to yourself." But what's the point in that, Sam? An opinion is there to be shared. I just don't understand these play-it-safe housemates. Maybe if I did, then I would have won. But I believe I was paid to go into the house to entertain the nation and that's exactly what I did. I would have hated to be boring.

Celebrity Big Brother - Sam Faiers speaks to housemates on the sofa (21 January 2014).

The nominated housemates were asked to prepare a speech about why they should stay in the house. Ollie, who was up against Luisa, said: "I'm against arguing and I've never started an argument." We know that Ollie, but that isn't a reason why you should stay in the house. Bore Off.

Jim surprisingly also went up against Luisa and not Linda and called her a "pushy bitch". Lee also chose Luisa, which makes me think she is just an easy target for them. I think Luisa took this well and realises this is a game and not real life. She's a strong woman who doesn't have to rely on trying to get public sympathy. Next up to give her 'save me speech' was Linda who said: "I am probably not the most exciting housemate, but I am probably the grateful." Yes, yes, Linda we know you were on benefits... She also said: "I imagine Jim Davidson is a good bloke in his mind, but not mine. I think he is two-faced and his tactical joking is uncalled for." I can't think of a time when we have seen Jim be two-faced in the house.

Luisa was up next and showed why she should win. She voted to evict Celebrity Big Brother's horniest housemate Lee saying: "This is a warning to all women with a pulse and maybe some men." I love Luisa. She is probably the most honest and blunt housemate we have ever seen. She just doesn't care, but I love it. The Apprentice star has made this series for me and I can't wait to meet up with her for a nice glass of wine and some brutal honesty when she leaves.

Jim and Lee were in the garden discussing who would leave. Lee wrongly predicted it would be Luisa, while Jim said: "If Linda and Luisa leave, I'll have a fucking street party." It's very difficult for me as I like both Luisa and Jim. I hope it's a pant and, when they are evicted, they will be friends.

Meanwhile, I think Luisa is hurt by Dappy's face-to-face nomination of her and I really understand. They seem to get on really well, so it shocked me when he picked her. I said it earlier and will say it again, Luisa has just become an easy target. While talking to Linda and Sam about Dappy, she said: "As far as I am concerned we are fine and then he nominated me. It's fine, he is entitled to, but he hasn't spoken to me. How can you be friends with someone for two weeks and then not. It doesn't make him look very good." I have to say I agree. They have had so much fun in the house together and I cannot believe he nominated her.

I was so happy when Emma Willis spoke to the house and told Linda she was the next housemate to be evicted. I was bored when she went on about Jim bringing up her dead husband. Let's just be clear, as far as we saw, Jim didn't bring up your husband, YOU DID! I am so excited for the secret eviction on Sunday. Who will go…YOU decide!

Ex-CBB housemate Nicola McLean blogs Celebrity Big Brother exclusively for Reveal.

Last night's show should have been all about the aftermath of Liz leaving, but in true Big Brother style they decide to throw a face-to-face nomination in the works...

But before all of that, after spending their time in the house sitting on the fence, Ollie and Sam were forced to give their opinions on their fellow housemates and each other, while their housemates looked on!

When asked about Lee and Casey's relationship, which Casey has previously described as "friends with benefits", Sam and Ollie both admitted that Lee benefited the most from it. Then when asked if Ollie has a chance of romance with Sam outside the house, both positioned themselves on the yes side. I thought Ollie was so funny with his explanation when he said: "I said yes because if you don't have optimism you're a knob!" Meanwhile, Sam said: "Why would I say no when he's gorgeous, you don't know what's around the corner." I'm just not sure on Sam's thoughts about Ollie - does she really fancy him? I'm not convinced!

In a reward for passing the task, the pair were given strawberries and champagne and Ollie clearly thought it was a good time to lay on the charm. He told Sam: "I spent two and a half weeks with you wearing no make-up and I still want to be with you every day." I know this will be an unpopular view (but I'm full of those, so here goes)... It didn't feel genuine to me. In fact, I thought it looked like a scene from Made In Chelsea!

Moving on, I'm starting to feel a little bit sorry for Lee now. I know some of you might be cursing at me for this statement but listen, he's young, single and clearly vulnerable. He's in close proximity of two stunning girls, who have both fallen for his charms, and don't seem bothered about doing "bits" on TV.

I'm not going to hold back through fear of people saying 'she's only jealous', I've watched every episode and my judgment is that Casey is playing a game and Lee has become her pawn. Lee looked upset in the Diary Room when he told Big Brother, "Friends with benefits? That means friends that s*** each other, I've never said that. Yet Ollie and Sam said it benefits me! Why the f*** does it benefit me?" And I think Lee's right, it hasn't benefited him at all. It's made him unpopular with some viewers outside of the house!

So after Liz was evicted, the housemates were forced to nominate face-to-face and I couldn't stop shouting at the TV! I'm really not liking watching Linda. "I can't get over what happened last week," she said, referring to vague comments about "Frank Carson's dressing room" during her argument with Jim. I just can't get over how bitter she comes across as! Then she's fuming at Dappy because he nominated her?!

These housemates are driving me mad! It's a bloody game and most people in the house like each other, but you have to pick two people to nominate and give reasons, so why shouldn't it be you?!

Linda, Luisa, Ollie, Jim and Lee all face eviction tonight and I hope Linda goes. I can't stand the sly looks she gives Jim. Enough already! I also think that Sam will be more fun without Linda, she's paired up with her in the house, but it's made her act like one of the old ones!

Last but not least was Ollie's speech, and I must admit, I agreed with him. Although it was a tad theatrical, he was right because he hasn't had any problems in the house before so he's had no need to argue. He isn't confrontational and so doesn't feel the need to get involved in other people's arguments.

Luisa is funny, but I thought she was out of order to go and bitch about Ollie to Linda in the bedroom. But what really pissed me off was the fact that Sam was in there with them, listening to it all and didn't even stick up for him.

I can't wait to see who goes tonight - just pray it's not Luisa or Jim!
