The curly haired wannabe star is getting a second shot a stardom
BUBBLY Andrew Cruickshanks has certainly made the most of his late entrance to the Big Brother house.
Here’s what we know about the Scottish hairdresser who has made it to the final week…
Who is Andrew Cruickshanks? What is his background?
Curly haired Andrew is a hairdresser from Glasgow.
Unlike the other newbies, Andrew is a newcomer to TV.
He also is silent on social media, and hasn’t posted on his Twitter since 2015 and he has no Instagram.
When is Andrew Cruickshanks going into the Big Brother house?
Andrew was one of four people on launch night who had to appeal to the public to vote them IN to the house – and they would then become the “People’s Housemate”.
When pleading with the viewers to vote for him, he said: “These guys have got an agenda.
“I’m fresh, I’m an old soul, and I’m so passionate. Just get me in there.”
Unfortunately Andrew lost out to Tom Barber.
But all was not lost as he was given a second chance and entered the house on Thursday, June 29.
When is Big Brother on Channel 5?
On weeknights, the reality show generally airs at 10pm, lasting for an hour, with spin-off show Big Brother’s Bit on the Side following straight after.
However, on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays the fun kicks off at 9pm, with the live eviction shows airing on Friday nights.
Big Brother typically lasts around two months, with last year’s series the shortest in the show’s history, lasting just 50 days.
This year’s series expected to run for about the same length of time, though nothing is set in stone yet.
Who is presenting Big Brother 18?
Emma Willis has returned to host the 18th series of Big Brother, having begun her stint on the show back in 2013.
The outrageous Rylan Clark-Neal is continuing at the helm of popular spin-off show Big Brother’s Bit on the Side for all the gossip from the house.
The pair also get together after the latest eviction to discuss the events of that evening.
Where is the Big Brother house and what does it look like?
The Big Brother house is in the Elstree studios in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire just a 22 minute train journey from London Kings Cross Station.
This year, the house’s theme has been inspired by the General Election and Brexit.
Big Brother 18’s official title is The United Kingdom of Big Brother, and the house has been given a kitsch makeover, with rooms inspired by various aspects of British culture.
A devilish twist sees housemates forced to live and sleep in separate spheres in the house, in keeping with the series’ class-oriented theme, The United Kingdom of Big Brother.
Those sleeping in the grotty bedroom have to deal with graffiti on the walls and furnishings, rickety wooden bed frames, a dirty carpet, old hand-me-down bedding and minimal storage.
Meanwhile the luxury bedroom is the definition of cosy, with beautiful turquoise walls, animal imagery, pristine bedding and a homey atmosphere.
How long has Big Brother been running?
The Big Brother reality TV concept originated in the Netherlands, with the first series airing in 1997.
Following its success, the show came to the UK in 2000, with Craig Phillips the British version’s first winner.
After 11 series on Channel 4, Big Brother moved to Channel 5 in 2011, where it has remained ever since.
The show has provided some of the most controversial moments in reality TV history, and catapulted the likes of Jade Goody, Nikki Grahame and Chanelle Hayes to fame.
