US vlogger Frankie Grande is one of 15 celebrities taking part in this summer’s Celebrity Big Brother.
Dubbed as Big Brother‘s “Superstar YouTuber”, Frankie announced his participation in the series in a vlog uploaded on 28 July. Addressing his viewers, he said: “I’m going to try super hard to represent you all in the house.”
Frankie was previously a contestant on Big Brother 16 in the US, in which he placed fifth. He mentioned being particularly excited to be on the celebrity version of the UK show, saying: “You guys know how much I love the UK.”
Frankie was the second celebrity to enter the house at the launch on Thursday evening, following actor and presenter Christopher Biggins. He immediately sparked a conversation with Stephen Bear, Ex on the Beach star. He was also seen to have an argument with TV presenter and Loose Women panellist Saira Khan about which of them would have to share a bed.
