When I asked her about the project recently, all she would say was: ‘I have got something planned but can’t really go into too much detail.’
Viewers could be forgiven for not recognising some of the contestants in the new series of Celebrity Big Brother – and it seems some of the housemates themselves are just as baffled.
Singer LaToya Jackson and the actor Verne Troyer failed to recognise many of the British contestants appearing in the reality TV show, which began on Friday.
They sat discussing the housemates – and after Scottish socialist politician Tommy Sheridan left the room, Michael Jackson’s sister asked the Austin Powers star: ‘Who was he?’
Verne, 40, said: ‘I want to say Michael. At least we know some people here, I know you and I know Coolio [the rapper].’
Verne had not recognised Terry Christian, who presented TV show The Word. The others were hoping to boost their profiles, added Verne.
‘I don’t need camera time. I’m here for the money.’
Former TV presenter Ulrika Jonsson is also in the house.
Channel 4 offered refunds to viewers yesterday, after promoting an incorrect text message number on the show Big Brother’s Big Mouth.
