Series Chronology
Next Series Celebrity Big Brother 2

Celebrity Big Brother 1 (UK) was the inaugural version of Celebrity Big Brother. Like the regular version of Big Brother (UK), the show featured a number of strangers living in a house together in complete isolation, having to nominate each other for eviction with the public voting on who to evict. Unlike the regular version of the show, however, the six housemates living together were notable celebrities, with the prize money going to charity rather than to themselves. This season, all money raised was given to Comic Relief, with the season finale being held on Red Nose Day 2001.

Twists

  • Live Nominations: Each housemate was required to make their nominations live during the launch episode, moments after meeting each other. The first eviction would be held the day after, on Day 2.
