Keith Chegwin could be leaving the Celebrity Big Brother house on Friday as the WINNER.
The contestants were reduced to five last night after the two housemates with the fewest public votes were evicted.

Why did you want to do the show?
CBB has always been a challenge and everyone says it’s because of the people, but it’s not. I couldn’t give a toss who’s in there, it’s all about Big Brother. Everyone forgets Big Brother, and you don’t know what Big Brother is going to get you to do.
Do you still get nervous?
No! If it goes wrong then it’s not my fault, they booked me. I don’t get worried about anything and I think that is because of my past. I have had bad and good things happen and it has been a bit of a roller-coaster ride, so when you get to something like this you think of it as an enjoyable challenge.
Will you be a peacekeeper?
No, let them fight! Mediation is fantastic but it’s not my job to do it. I’ll probably end up watching it like a viewer, thinking, ‘Go for it!’.
Is there anyone you’d hate to see in there?
Piers Morgan has been particularly rude about me over the years but I wouldn’t mind if he was there because I’d like to see if it’s what he genuinely feels or if he’s just a motor mouth.
Are there any habits in other people that will annoy you?
Untidiness and dirtiness. I’m not super clean but I do like clean people. If there is a poo in the loo I will find out whose it is and I might even bring it out!
It’s your 58th birthday while you’re in the house.
I’m not a fan of birthdays so I don’t mind if they just miss it out. I’ve got a twin brother and we just about call each other on that day. Ice cream might be nice. A kids’ party with a kids’ entertainer!
Will you feel like you need to entertain people?
That is the great thing about this. They booked me and for once I haven’t got to do anything. So I haven’t got to come out with any gags. Although I do like playing jokes and I’ve got something, which, if it backfires on me I’ll be out next week. I think it might work!
Do you want to show another side to Cheggers?
There isn’t one! The only side they could see is me getting angry, but that would only be for a minute. I can’t be bothered! People have a preconception that Keith Chegwin is thick and I’ve always suckered up to that because I quite like it. That’s one side that people don’t know about Keith Chegwin. I do read a lot. I know a bit about everything!
