A Bolton reality star has said he doesn’t care about what anyone thinks of him in the latest episode of Celebrity Big Brother.

David described himself as ‘the loud annoying one from Ibiza Weekender’ as he was introduced to the programme on Monday evening. On his personal Instagram page, David can be seen working out at Bolton’s Nuffield Health as he documents his weight loss journey.

On Monday, David was put into the ‘ring of fire’ alongside the Princess of Wales’ uncle Gary Goldsmith and Zeze Millz by former X Factor judges Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne, who watched from a separate room as housemates, including bookies' favourite Fern Britton and celebrity chef Levi Roots, arrived.

On Tuesday evening, David told Big Brother’s diary room his thoughts on being put in to the ‘danger zone’.

The 30-year-old said: “I’m not surprised, because I feel like I get that a lot – wherever I go people at first are a bit like ‘uh’, and then all of a sudden, they’re going to love me.

“Because I am actually a nice person, people probably just think I’m a bit too much at first but then they realise I’ve got a lot of layers.”

Later in the episode, Louis and David got to know each other in the kitchen.

Asked whether he enjoyed being famous, David responded: “I don’t think I’m famous, though, I wouldn’t say I’m famous.”

David added: “The thing is Louis, I don’t give a s*** what anyone thinks of me. Do you know what I mean?"

He said: "If you want to come to me with your opinion, I’ll listen to it" 

“If someone’s got a negative opinion on me, bring it to me, that’s absolutely fine", before adding that he did not care.

The celebrities

The 71-year-old is known for starring in reality series The Osbournes alongside her husband, former Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne, and her children Kelly and Jack.

Louis Walsh

Irish music manager and former X Factor judge Louis Walsh was the second celebrity to enter the house.

Nikita Kuzmin

Strictly Come Dancing star Nikita Kuzmin said he is coming out of his “comfort zone” by appearing on the show.

The 26-year-old dancer from Ukraine, who was a runner-up on the BBC One dancing show last year alongside celebrity partner Layton Williams, said he is “OCD clean” and likes to have everything “in the right place”.

Ekin-Su Culculoglu

Reality star Ekin-Su Culculoglu, who won Love Island in 2022 alongside Davide Sanclimenti, said she was looking to “grow” on the show.

The 29-year-old, who recently took part in the US version of The Traitors, added: “I want to bring my confidence back, these experiences bring my confidence out.

“In Love Island I had that. I was very confident. But over the last 18 months it has drifted away. I’ve had a difficult time.”

Colson Smith

Actor Colson Smith is best known for playing Craig Tinker on Coronation Street.

The 25-year-old said his biggest fear for CBB is “being that housemate that nobody likes”.

This is not the first reality show he has been on – in 2022 the Yorkshireman competed on ITV reality series The Games.

Gary Goldsmith

Kate Middleton’s uncle Gary Goldsmith said he is looking to show the “real me” rather than the “villain I’m often portrayed in the press”.

The 58-year-old businessman and podcaster, who lives in London, said he is “nervous” about the unknown but he does not “scare easily”.

Marisha Wallace

American actress Marisha Wallace is best known for her work in musical theatre.

The 38-year-old said she is “excited to represent the theatre community”.

The West End star added: “I want to tell my stories and inspire people who come from small towns who don’t have a lot but who dream big and hopefully I can inspire them to dream bigger.”


Levi Roots

Business owner and Dragons’ Den star Levi Roots said he has entered the Celebrity Big Brother house as he wants “to engage with young people”.

The 65-year-old, who is also a musician and celebrity chef, said: “As a black Caribbean there will be other people in the house who are different, who dress differently, we will all be different, and if I’m not the typical archetype of what people think I should be, I think people have the right to be different and so I don’t like people who challenge that.”

Fern Britton

TV presenter Fern Britton is best known for being a former co-host of This Morning and Ready Steady Cook.

The 66-year-old, who is also an acclaimed author, said it would be “lovely to make a friend or two” in the house.

Zeze Millz

British TV presenter Zeze Millz said she could be an “argumentative” housemate as she finds it “difficult to end debates”.

The 34-year-old, based in London, said the show is a “once-in-a-lifetime chance” to be a part of “the original social experiment”.

Lauren Simon

Lauren Simon shot to fame on reality series The Real Housewives Of Cheshire.

The 48-year-old said CBB has “always been on my bucket list”.

Reflecting on what will “scare” her the most about the experience, she said: “Sleeping in a room with strangers snoring.”

The 22-year-old, who lives in Surrey and is open about his autism, said he wants to be a “positive representation for neurodiversity and the queer community”.
