How to enter Big Brother - pick up tomorrow's Daily Star

Big Brother Golden Tickets

28th May 2011

By Nadine Linge

DON’T miss today’s Daily Star for your BIG chance to get the hottest ticket in town – a place in the all-new Big Brother house.

The world’s most successful reality show, Big Brother is coming back with a bang on Channel 5 this summer and, as always, the Daily Star will be first with the all the news.

But this time we have gone one better and teamed up with BB bosses to make sure our readers are first in line for a place inside the house.

We are giving away exclusive Golden Tickets, which will give our lucky readers the chance to be on TV. BB8’s Brian Belo, 23, is backing our fantastic giveaway.

He said: “The Golden Tickets are great because they give someone the chance to enter who might not necessarily do it otherwise.

“Someone might never think of applying but if they open their Daily Star and fi nd a Golden Ticket, they’ll think: ‘Well, why not? I’ve got a chance.’

“Big Brother gives a voice to the ordinary man on the street and this is the perfect way to make sure that carries on.”

Last year’s champion Josie Gibson, 26, could not agree more. She said: “The Golden Ticket competition is perfect for people who want to enter this year’s BB house.

“What better way to win your place than in Britain’s biggest BB newspaper? “I can’t wait to watch the new show on Channel 5.”

If you are not getting excited yet, let’s just remember why BB is the best-ever reality show.

Who could forget classic moments like “Nasty” Nick Bateman, 43, being caught out for inflencing votes, or Makosi Musambasi, 30, and Anthony Hutton, 29, romping in the pool? Then there was the infamous Fight Night when Emma Greenwood, 27, and Victor Ebuwa, 30, had a bust-up.

It made stars of Brian Dowling, 32, Chanelle Hayes, 23, and Craig Phillips, 39, and now it could be you. Inside every copy of Saturday’s Daily Star for the next four weeks, we will be giving away our special Golden Ticket wallets.

Open yours and, if it contains an actual Golden Ticket complete with unique reference number on the front, you will have the chance to attend an exclusive BB final stage audition with producers where they could pick you to be on the show.

If you’re not lucky enough to find a Golden Ticket, don’t despair as you could still be a winner.

We are also giving away Silver Tickets which will entitle holders to a swish Hitachi Camcorder.

So make sure you read the Daily Star every day and check the wallet inside on Saturdays to fi nd out if you are a lucky Golden Ticket holder. And let your newsagent know you need your Daily Star, as demand is expected to be huge.
