Louis Walsh to face punishment after breaking Celebrity Big Brother rule

Louis Walsh to face punishment after breaking Celebrity Big Brother rule

The X Factor judge joins another celebrity housemate for an embarrassing punishment.

For the first time in nearly five years, we’ve spent the week with Celebrity Big Brother back on our screens.

The legendary staple of British reality telly launched on ITV at the beginning of this week (4 March) with the line-up featuring a whole mix of stars.

From Strictly Come Dancing’s Nikita Kuzmin to Kate Middleton’s uncle Gary Goldsmith, there’s all sorts of housemates in this year’s Celebrity Big Brother.

Not to mention of course the iconic reunion of The X Factor judges Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne.

Walsh has been thrilled to have his sidekick with him, but she’ll be leaving soon as she explained she can’t leave husband Ozzy, who has Parkinson’s disease, for long periods.

And before she does exit the Big Brother house, she’ll miss out on some time with the Irishman as he faces a punishment.

Louis Walsh is in the dog house.

Walsh, along with Lauren Simon, broke one of Big Brother’s rules following last night’s episode.

The Real Housewives of Cheshire star received the most nominations from the housemates with a large total of six.

But she doesn’t know who those votes came from. Unlucky for her though because we do: Bradley Riches, Colson Smith, Marisha Wallace, Zeze Millz, Goldsmith and Kuzmin.

And feeling gutted by the votes against her, Simon went to Walsh for some moral support.

Except that’s not all she wanted – the pair began to discuss who might’ve used their vote against her. She can’t know for sure but Simon is convinced on one in particular as she told Walsh: “Zeze Millz.”

But as tempting as it might be, this type of chat over nominations is against the rules and Big Brother was not happy about it.

That's embarassing.

During last night’s Late & Live, host AJ Odudu revealed that the pair had been watched and will face a punishment for their rule-breaking chat.

In a preview clip for tonight’s episodes, the housemates hear: “This is Big Brother. Housemates, there has been a rule break.

"This morning, a rule was broken by Louis… and Lauren. Louis and Lauren, wrap up warm.

“Please make your way into the garden until further notice."

And after this, the pair can be seen sat in a big pink ‘Celebrity Wheelie Bin of Shame’. Now that’s embarrassing.

Users responded to the ‘sneak peak’ on X, joking: “What is one thing Louis can’t go a week without? …. Gossiping.”

Simon will now be up against Goldsmith in tonight’s Live Eviction, the first of the series.

Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm tonight on ITV.
