I’m going into the Big Brother house to serve up quite a few surprises.

Mohamed Al Fayed

20th August 2011

CELEBRITY Big Brother is set to erupt today as outspoken tycoon Mohamed Al Fayed goes into the house on a revenge mission.

Celebrity Big Brother viewers are guaranteed a “Fright Night”, with former Harrods boss Mohamed Al Fayed vowing to challenge paparazzi chief Darryn Lyons over his treatment of his son Dodi and Princess Diana.

Al Fayed, 82, still partly blames photographers for the death of the couple in a car smash in a Paris tunnel in 1997. He has accused them of invading their privacy and hounding them on the night they died.

He said: “I’m going into the Big Brother house to serve up quite a few surprises.”

When he enters today he will come face-to-face with 46-year-old Lyons, the self-styled “king of the paparazzi”.

At one point he was accused of being the man who leaked the controversial picture of Diana dying in the back of the crashed Mercedes.

But he has always denied the allegation.

The colourful snapper, who runs the Big Pictures agency, took thousands of photos of the Princess of Wales over the years and claims she often stage-managed the shots.

He has no time for stars who slate the press.

Lyons said: “What Princess Diana didn’t realise is that once you give all those great pictures, it’s very hard to say: ‘Hold on a minute, guys, stop!’ ”

Al Fayed has agreed to go on the Channel 5 show for a day as a special surprise house guest and Lyons is the main man he will focus on.

A source said: “There will be fireworks. We are talking about two men who stand their ground.”

The unsuspecting housemates will also be set a challenge by Fulham FC owner Al Fayed. And if they pass they will win a treat.

However the most gripping part of his visit will be his confrontation with Lyons.

The source said: “This will be a real shocker, another Fright Night.

“Darryn may have many celebrity friends in the world but he also has a lot of enemies.

“Let’s just say that Al Fayed knows of him, what he has done and isn’t his biggest admirer.”

And Al Fayed will not be the only celebrity house guest popping up in the new series.

Big Brother bosses have lined up a string of famous faces to drop in and surprise the crazy gang.

Al Fayed’s visit will happen today and TV viewers will be able to see what happened on the Channel 5 highlights show tomorrow at 10pm.


CELEBRITY Big Brother will return tonight with a highlights show at 9.15pm. And tomorrow it will air at 10pm.

The CBB highlights show will then be broadcast nightly from Monday through to Thursday in the 10pm slot.

The first eviction from the house is due to take place on a live show next Friday at 9pm.
