The 19th series of the reality show is set be ‘Gold Stars vs New Stars’.
‘Celebrity Big Brother' 2017 looks set to be an explosive series, with some of the show’s most controversial housemates set to return.
The 19th series of the Channel Five show is set to launch in January and will see ‘Gold Star’ ex-housemates compete against new faces.
‘Made In Reality’ describes how Pratt began smoking crystal meth as a teen and suffered from bulimia while appearing on ‘The Hills’.
Former ‘The Hills’ star Stephanie Pratt has opened up about her pasts struggles with drug abuse in her new memoir ‘Made In Reality’. The 29 year old rose to fame on the MTV reality series and has gone on to become a cast member of ‘Made In Chelsea’.
Stephanie Pratt has released her memoir ‘Made In Reality’.
In the book Pratt reveals how her drug problems began at an early age, 'I was 14 or 15 (when I first smoked crystal meth).... I was on the extreme level and addiction developed instantly,’ Pratt writes (via the Daily Mail).
Bill Montag appeared on the MTV show’s fifth season, when his daughter married Spencer Pratt.
Bill Montag, the 67 year old father of ‘The Hills’ star Heidi Montag, has been arrested in Colorado on allegations of sexually abusing a young girl as well as committing incest, according to police.

Montag was taken into custody on Thursday in Aspen, Colorado and later charged with three counts of sexual assault on a child and aggravated incest, according to Denver’s 7 News Channel. He is alleged to have committed the acts between 1993 and 1998, starting when the victim was 13.
Do you miss Lauren Conrad and Spencer Pratt? Where are the cast of The Hills these days?
After catching up with the Olsen sisters we’ve been thinking about what other celebrities we haven’t seen for a while. Remember how utterly entranced by The Hills we all were? Every now and then LC crops up, but what are the rest of the cast up to these days?
Lauren Conrad stood alone as the voice of moral reason for most of The Hills. While other cast members acted atrociously towards one another, LC stood for loyalty and honesty. Not comprising her ethical stance for ‘good’ television paid off and Lauren is now more successful than ever. She’s written a series of novels aimed at young adults as well as becoming known as a bona fide beauty guru. She has her own fashion line and has recently announced her engagement to guitarist William Tell.

We've all heard of a sore loser, but after Celebrity Big Brother winner Rylan Clarke spoke to The Sun today (Jan 26) following his victory, it looked as though most people were in unanimous support of what he had to say, particularly when he began ranting about everyone's favourite couple to hate, Spiedi.
Clarke was quick to criticise his fellow former housemates Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, who looked for a while like being the front runners to win the show despite their odious behaviour throughout the show's run. The X Factor reject told the paper: “I've never met two people that made me feel so uncomfortable being around them in my life,” adding that he, like many others, believes that the pair were playing a game to turn the rest of the housemates against each other to take the title.
"At the end of the day Speidi played a game. They've taken the crown from Nasty Nick," the reality TV veteran said, adding, “I did think they were genuinely gutted that they didn't win. Part of me does think that they are made up for me. But f*** 'em, I won in the end."

Gillian Taylforth became the fourth person to be evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house last night, and immediately after her boot she sunk her claws into the double-trouble team of Heidi and Spencer Pratt, labelling them as "bullies."
The former Eastenders and The Bill actress opened up on her experiences in the house when she was interviewed by CBB host Brian Dowling following her eviction, discussing her true feelings about the rest of the housemates, especially Spiedi. "I didn't like it at all," said the actress, referring to the time when the US reality stars moved back into the house again, after they had been living in the basement together. She went on to say that because of those two in particular, the house erupted in argument after argument, something she wasn't a fan of at all. She said, "I've been around arguments a lot in my life and been involved in them and I didn't like it at all."
"Especially when they started saying about Claire, and she got really upset - I found that not very fair, it was like bullying," she added, whilst also discussing her attempts to remain as far from the conflict as possible and persuading others to do so too.

Not content with the fame and fortune that a life of reality TV has brought her, Heidi Montag (star of The Hills and Celebrity Big Brother housemate) is convinced that she has what it takes to be a pop star. The 26 year-old is so self-assured by her vocal talents that she allegedly sunk a fortune into recording her own album, Superficial which was released… and sank without a trace… in 2010.
Even with the powers of one of pop music’s greatest songwriter’s Cathy Dennis at her disposal, and technological advances, such as auto-tune, we have to say, Heidi, please don’t give up the day job. Whatever that is, exactly. We’ve looked a little deeper into Heidi’s pop career and, frankly, it’s a joke. It’s not even ‘so bad it’s good. It’s just bad, sorry Heidi. We reckon Cathy Dennis must have been clearing out her ‘unwanted pop song’ drawer when she handed these duds over to Montag; most likely she didn’t want to waste her best songs on someone that can’t hold a tune. Songs like ‘I’ll Do It’ and ‘Higher’ are vacuous pop at their very worst.
The bottom of the barrel, though, has to be the video for ‘Higher,’ which was directed by her husband Spencer Pratt. If it was filmed as a comedy sketch, they’d probably be up for some kind of award. As a serious pop video, though, the low-budget ‘chasing seagulls’ Montag-montage simply doesn’t cut it for us. And yes, we know you have a nice figure. And no, we don’t want to buy your record. She’s already admitted that spending that $2million left her broke. Frankly, watching that video has left us broken.
So, the newest series of the show that managed to die a hard death only to be sadly revived like a second Frankenstein's monster, rehashed from the original - more nuts and bolts and scars than can be counted, and probably scarier - has returned. That's right, Celebrity Big Brother is back with a new cohort of desperate celebrities whose own careers have failed and are willing to do anything to regain the spotlight, or a spot of extra cash.
So, here's the tragic lineup for this year:
1. Frankie Detorri

It's here. It's finally here. Big Brother 2013 airs tonight (January 3, 2012) on Channel 5 from 9pm. A two-hour launch show presented by Brian Dowling will introduce this year's contestants, which have been kept safely under wraps for weeks.
In one of this year's televisual lowlights, the has-beens and nobodies will love each other for a bit, then hate each other for a bit. Someone will probably say, "She's totally different from her on-screen character," and Rylan from The X Factor will end up winning. If the tabloids are to be believed, Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan could be among those entering the famous house, as will Page 3 girl Lacey Banghard, from Neighbours actor Ryan Moloney, Eastenders star Gillian Taylforth and Heartbeat's Tricia Penrose. No? Us neither.
Any kind of 'reality' television gets the rumour mill going, as we all realise that 'real life' is so much more interesting than fiction. But when it includes celebrities, it's even more exciting. The Celebrity Big Brother rumour mill has been churning away ferociously over the past couple of days, particularly because three people that have already been tipped as entering the house have landed in London... with no particular other reason to be in Blighty.
Heidi Montag and her husband Spencer Pratt touched down at Heathrow with five enormous bags and one suitcase. While The Mirror think those bags may be a sign that they're not heading into the famed house- contestants can only take one bag in- they may in fact be planning to stay a little longer than the show itself... "or there's going to one almighty pre-launch hissy fit between Spencer and a CBB producer" as the paper noted.
Lindsay Lohan also arrived in London over the weekend amid similar speculation, but her appearance could merely be continuation of her following Max George from The Wanted around. He's on the way to New York today, however, to perform at a New Year's Eve event- which she must have known about. Lindsay is also due in court in the US on January 15th and with the show beginning on January third and going on for much longer than just two weeks, it looks unlikely that she'll be participating.
