Producers were deluged with wannabes

11th June 2011

BIG Brother returned with a bang yesterday as thousands queued through the night in a bid to enter the famous house.

Producers were deluged with wannabes as auditions for the Channel 5 show began.

Among those hoping to impress judges were glamour girls, a member of Mensa and a Kim Kardashian lookalike.

And producers said they were going back to basics to recreate the explosive scenes seen in earlier series.

They said picking people purely on their personalities and not on the way they look will ensure fireworks.

Executive producer Katy Smith said: “We’re very keen to have really genuine housemates, people who want to do it for the experience and not just because they want the fame.

“Big Brother needs to be a bit more authentic. Our biggest message is: ‘Be yourself.’ If you aren’t your persona will crumble in the house.

“The house just gets bigger and better each year with each new group of housemates and this year, more than ever, it will be very personality-led.”

First in the queue at Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium was 34DD model Lucy Harold, 22.

The lads’ mag favourite, from Birmingham, said: “I just want to show people that I am so much more than a pretty face.

“People think that because you are pretty you are thick and I am fed up of it. Big Brother is an experience you can’t buy and I want to get out of my comfort zone.”

Meanwhile, professional boxer Jerome Wilson, 26, wants viewers to see his quieter side.

The Sheffield fighter said: “I’d be a great calming influence in there. Underneath there is a very diplomatic person who is not always seen.”

Primark worker Andrew Foster, 19, from Liverpool, said he would quit his law degree if he got a place in the house, adding: “I’ve got the brains and I think Big Brother needs me.”


Manchester: open auditions today at Old Trafford football ground.

London: two more live open auditions on Saturday and Sunday (June 18 and 19) at the Emirates Football Stadium.

Just turn up on the day and try to wow the Big Brother producers.

Channel 5 director of programmes Jeff Ford said: “It really couldn’t be easier to apply this year. All potential housemates need to do is turn up on the day and do everything they can to convince our casting panel that they have what it takes.”
