A former police officer, a boxer and a mother and daughter are among the second batch of Big Brother contestants who entered the house on Friday night.
The second instalment of the 2013 launch show saw a further six arrivals to join the nine who entered the house on Thursday.
They included ex-detective constable Dan Neal – who was involved in the Operation Yewtree investigation against Jimmy Savile and other individuals prior to leaving the force.
Reports of his impending arrival in the house raised concern at Scotland Yard, who contacted Channel 5 to warn them of the risks of having a former policeman in the house.
However Dan has played down their fears, saying: “It’s a game show at the end of the day. I can’t see how it would affect the image of the police.”
Also making her debut on Friday was 24-year-old ‘lady of leisure’ Gina Rio – who revealed her status as the ‘most spoiled girl in Britain’.
Gina, who claimed that she lives at the Savoy hotel and is given a weekly allowance of £10,000 by her mother – was booed heartily by the crowd before she had even had a chance to enter the house.
The line-up was completed by mother and daughter duo Charlie and Jackie Travers, glamour model Hazel O’Sullivan and boxer Daley Ojuderie.
Friday’s Big Brother also threw another twist into the mix as Michael – the actor posing as a housemate – was set another task by Big Brother.
This time around he was given the choice of tucking into a pizza and beer in exchange for having the suitcases of the six new housemates destroyed – or saving their suitcases and foregoing the treat.
Ultimately Michael rejected the pizza and saved the suitcases, after the audience voted in favour of the move.
However he was also told he will be the only housemate nominating next week – with the public voting for the housemates they most want him to put up for eviction next Friday night.
