Celebbigbrother09uk.png

Celebrity Big Brother 2009 was the sixth series of Celebrity Big Brother. It began on 2 January 2009 and ran for 22 days until 23 January 2009. It was broadcast on Channel 4. The launch show was watched by approximately 6.4 million people.[1] Davina McCall returned as main presenter, with George Lamb as host of Big Brother's Little Brother, and Jack Whitehall as host of Big Brother's Big Mouth. The winner of this series was Ulrika Jonsson, with Terry Christian second.

This was the first series of Celebrity Big Brother to air since the racism controversy of 2007, during series 5, although Channel 4's sister channel E4 aired a similar spin-off in 2008, entitled Big Brother: Celebrity Hijack. At the time of transmission, this series was the least watched of any Big Brother series, averaging 3.3 million viewers, but despite this, the launch was the most watched programme of 2009 on Channel 4, attracting over 6 million viewers.

House

The house used was the one from Big Brother 2008 and was largely unchanged, aside from a few minor modifications. Some of the wall panels near the stairs were modified to include stars in them to go with the format of the series. As the housemates entered the house there was a welcome pack available for housemates to read. The floor pattern in the basic bedroom were changed from the red segment of the BB9 eye, to a sequence of stars, and the beds were larger and more comfortable than in BB9. There was also a sign saying "You don't have to be mad to live here....but it helps" on one of the walls. The bathroom was completely gold, leaving no blue decor. The showers were closed off to give the celebrities privacy, although there were microphones in the showers. The garden house walls are now mainly blue and the pool has been taken out. The jail is now larger and includes a bench and mirror. A new heated sitting area was put in place and there appeared to be no spa or pool replacement. The smoking area, which contained a wall with dolls' faces with no eyes on, was moved for protection against the elements. The living area remained largely unchanged apart from some added weights and gym equipment.

Daily summary

Day 1 Entrances La Toya, Mutya, Verne, Tommy, Lucy, Ben, Tina, Coolio, Michelle, Terry and Ulrika entered the Big Brother House on Day 1.
Events Terry became the Head of House as he was the only housemate left without a bed.[6]
Day 2 Tasks For today's task, housemates had to decide between themselves who should receive which credit. One housemate would receive a starring credit, two would get a 'co-starring' credit, two would receive a 'featuring' credit, three housemates would be extras and 3 housemates would get no credit at all. After they decided, Head of House Terry would film the credited housemates in a "closing credits style" which would be broadcast at the end of the highlights show.[7] In a twist to the task, Terry secretly watched his fellow housemates' behaviour during the task and had to decide who has the most inflated ego. He chose Ulrika. This automatically put her up for eviction fo the first week. The housemates were to win two tokens for completing the task, but lost one, see punishments below.[8]
Punishments A token that was won in the task was taken away from the housemates because La Toya went into Terry's private room earlier in the day.
Day 3 Tasks The task on Day 3 had housemates showcase their talents that made them famous to Head of House Terry. He chose Lucy as the least talented housemate stating she didn't impress him at all and her routine was boring. He also stated that he hadn't heard of her before she went in the house.[9]
Day 4 Tasks For the task, housemates had to pair up and act like one another for an hour. The pairs were Tommy/La Toya, Michelle/Lucy, Coolio/Verne, Tina/Mutya, Ben/Ulrika. Terry had no partner but had to wear one piece of clothing from each other housemate. Housemates passed the task and, as a reward, Terry won a Thai takeaway meal.[10]
Day 6 Tasks For this week's shopping task, housemates had to take part in 5 tasks associated with the rich and famous. Ben & Michelle had to become a celebrity couple in a task that tests their ability to work together. Verne and Ulrika had to perform a cover version of "Endless Love" as Lionel Richie and Diana Ross. La Toya and Tommy had to become contestants on a reality TV series and learn ice-skating from a DVD. Tina, Lucy and Coolio had to become members of the paparazzi and stake out the garden for 24 hours and photograph any non-housemate celebrities, including Michael Barrymore, Michelle Marsh, Nikki Grahame, Chesney Hawkes, Alice Barry and Rebecca Ryan who appeared over the garden wall on a crane. Mutya and Terry had to join and worship at the shrine of a celebrity cult. Housemates had to pass 3 of the 5 tasks in order to get a luxury shopping budget for the next week. However, housemates only passed 2 of the 5 set tasks, therefore they failed the task, and received a basic shopping budget of £1 per head per day.[11]
Day 7 Events During the task which started the day before Coolio started annoying a tired Lucy causing her to leave the paparazzi area. The paparazzi did not snap Michael Barrymoore causing their section of the task to fail. Tommy and La Toya's ice skating routine was also a failure as Tommy did not perform the steps correctly. Mutya and Terry did not pass their made up cult as they did not get to the Chesney Hawkes statue several times. With these three failures the entire task was failed.
Day 8 Exits Lucy was the first housemate to be evicted with 57% of the public vote.[12]
Day 9 Tasks Today's task was to perform a dance routine to the Eric Prydz song "Call on Me". If the performance was deemed to be satisfactory to Big Brother's expectations, housemates would receive three tokens. The housemates passed the task and won three tokens, but due to Terry and Tina discussing nominations, Big Brother awarded the housemates with only one token.
Day 10 Tasks The task for day 10 was a Best of British quiz, in which American housemates Coolio, La Toya, and Verne dressed up in traditional British costumes, dined on British food, and studied various British topics in preparation for the quiz, where they would answer questions based on their studies. The British housemates wore lycra suits with muscle stimulator pads which they had to wear for the duration of the task, and for every question the American housemates got wrong, the British housemates would receive a mild shock. As the American housemates correctly answered thirty-five out of fifty questions (thirty was needed to pass), and as all British housemates wore their lycra suits for the duration of the tasks, housemates passed this task and earned three tokens.
Day 12 Events Today was the first time all the housemates nominated. Ulrika received 5 nominations and Michelle, Mutya and Tina all received 3 nominations meaning causing all 4 to be put up for eviction.
Day 13 Tasks The housemates had to pretend to be toys for this week's shopping task. Tommy and Coolio had to be cars and go to the car wash every time the song Car Wash was played. Michelle and Verne had to be bears and eat a whole pot of honey in a day. Ulrika had to become a Native American and shoot a target with a bow and arrow. Terry and Tina had to dance as ballerinas. Ben had to hide and scare someone dressed as a dinosaur. Mutya and La Toya had to do a dance routine on a giant piano. Also when the sound of children laughing was played into the House, housemates had to get into a large toy box in the dining area in less than 1 minute. Then a group of children ran around the House and the housemates had to stay still until they left.
Day 15 Exits Tina was the second housemate to be evicted with 38.8% of the public vote.[13] Mutya was the first housemate to leave the house, because she was missing her children. She left at approximately 11.40pm.[14]
Day 17 Tasks The housemates were each given 3 chillis to eat. For each chilli they ate they were awarded a treat for the party later that day. Housemates nearly got all the luxury items for the party.
Events Housemates nominated for the second time. Michelle received 3 nominations and Ulrika , placing them both up for nomination for the secret surprise eviction the following day. Later on there was a party for the housemates.
Day 18 Exits Michelle became the third housmate to be evicted with 67% of the public vote.
Day 20 Tasks Housemates were asked to complete Big Brother dares, if they passed these dares they would receive a token and if they failed the penalty would be going to jail. Tommy was the only housemate to fail, therefore they won 6 tokens.
Exits La Toya and Tommy were evicted in a double eviction after receiving the least votes to win (6.6% and 9.2% respectively).
Day 22 Exits Ben left the house in 5th place. Verne finished in 4th. Coolio finished 3rd, and Terry was runner up to Ulrika, the winner.
