Goldie Lookin Chain star Maggot entered the Celebrity Big Brother house back in 2006 and he has claimed that it’s the easiest thing he has ever done.
The show’s Executive Producer Shirley Jones has warned new housemates that they will be in for a rough ride and that the famous line from Dante’s Inferno, “Abandon hope all ye who enter here” has inspired this year’s series. However Maggot thinks that this is unlikely and told WalesOnline:
“It’s one of the easiest things I’ve done in my life – if any of the new contestants say it’s hard, they shouldn’t go in there in the first place.”
“It was great fun, I didn’t have to pay gas or electric – I felt like I’d stepped inside my TV. I was face to face with all these people I’d watched all my life. It was bizarre and that’s why I loved it.”
This year the producers have gone all out to make the house spectacular for the final series. From the sumptuous sofas to the outside snug and the fairground themed diary room, bosses have spared no expense. But Maggot thinks they would have been better shopping in Ikea.
“I don’t know why they’ve gone to all that trouble, why don’t they just go to Ikea?” he said.
“Why bother with all this artsy Damien Hirst type stuff when you can get five tumblers for a pound there! By the end the door handles are falling off and there’s mould in the shower – those places are not built to last.
“You just come to realise that you are living in a television studio, but of course when you see it on the telly it looks nice and posh.”
Celebrity Big Brother launches on Channel 4 tonight at 9PM.
