Celebrity Big Brother 2011: it's back, whether we like it or not.
Now hosted on Channel 5, this year's series of Celebrity Big Brother, which hit our screens yesterday (August 18), promises/threatens to be bigger than ever. After much speculation the final housemates were revealed to be The Only Way Is Essex's Amy Childs, British model Bobby Sabel, Australian paparazzo Darryn Lyons, Coronation Street actor Lucien Laviscount, My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding's Paddy Doherty, American Pie actress Tara Reid, The Hoff's daughter Pamela Bach-Hasselhoff, the Speaker of The House Of Common's wife Sally Bercow, Kerry Katona and Irish duo Jedward.
With these last two 'musicians' in mind, Gigwise decided to round up all the musically-minded members of Celebrity Big Brother, from its inception in 2001 through to 2011.
From 2001's inclusion of Boyzone's Keith Duffy, ex-boyband members have been a key part of the BB brotherhood, with Another Level's Dane Bowers, Blazin' Squad's Kenzie, A1's Ben Adams, Ian 'H' Watkins of Steps fame, through to Mark Owen – who was Take That-less at the time – all taking part over the years.
Yet there's also the addition of the girl band members, such as S Club 7's Jo O Meara, ex-Sugababe Mutya Buena, Liberty X's Michelle Heaton and ex-Atomic Kitten Kerry Katona.
As well as the above, there's also the likes of Basshunter, Sisqo, Lady Sovereign, Coolio, Maggot of Goldie Lookin' Chain and many others. You can check all the musical contestants in our gallery below.
