Forget Joey Essex munching on kangaroo penis in the I'm a Celebrity jungle. That's just so 2013.

This weekend sees a whole new deluge of reality TV shows returning to our screens - enough to have your Sky Plus box begging to go to rehab for exhaustion.

ITV is leading the way with Dancing on Ice on Sunday and Splash! on Saturday (One word: Gemma Collins, ahem).

But the show we're all REALLY gagging to see is Celebrity Big Brother.

Let's face it, no other show can deliver the same quality of O.M.G-I'm-going-to-gag-pure-TV-gold-cringefest moments.

So to celebrate another series, here's my top cringey moments I just can't help but watch...

 


10. Frankie Cocozza's naked trip: He'd been controversial on The X Factor but that was nothing compared to Frankie's debauched behaviour in the house in 2012. Seeing the 20-year-old running naked through the garden before taking a tumble was all my delicate constitution could handle!




9. Chantelle Houghton and Preston being reunited: What would be the ideal send-off for the 2010's last CBB ever on Channel 4? Yep throwing their first married - and divorced - couple back in the house together, and waiting for the fireworks. Cruel, shocking and simply brilliant.

8. John McCririck's chest: Racing commentator John, 73, repeatedly went topless on 2005's CBB, seemingly oblivious to the effect it might have on viewers eating their tea in from of the telly.  With all those queasy tums, Milk of Magnesia sales must have gone through the roof.

7. Alex Reid stripping: Oh, poor Roxanne, sorry, Alex, 38. He's done a lot of embarrassing things in his time, but stripping naked for this spray tan in 2010 was his best CBB one. Not only did we get a very uncomfortable close up, we also had to endure him running round the garden naked with Basshunter. Put it away!

6. Denise Welch going topless: The 55-year-old Loose Women star did not hold back when it came to baring the flesh in the hot tub in 2012. We wonder how many horny pensioners across the UK were rewinding and rewatching this moment...

5. Vanessa Feltz's meltdown: Poor Vanessa snapped in 2001's first ever CBB, shouting ‘f*** off' at Big Brother and scrawling random messages across the table. It qualifies for this list purely because it was so disturbing to watch...We love you Vanessa!

4. Supervillains Speidi's evil plot against Claire Richards:
Boo hiss! Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag could make even Darth Vader wince with their megalomaniac schemes during 2013's winter series. But their Death Star moment had to be with Claire from Steps.
All they had to do was spend some time apart to win the task and allow Claire to get a letter from the children. But in true Machiavellian style they REFUSED - and then, wait for it, CLAPPED as Claire cried. Cold. So very, very cold. But such good telly.

3. Julie Goodyear's banana blow job: Corrie legend Julie Goodyear, 71, gets very seductive as a man in tiny gold trunks feeds her a banana in 2012. Ofcom, have you seen this?

 

2. George Galloway: Yep, George Galloway had so many OMG-are-you-serious?
moments during the 2006 show, I've deemed him to be one large
personification of cringe. There was THAT moment pretending to be
a cat and THAT moment in the leotard. I'm still paying for my therapy bills.

 

1. Charlotte Crosby's Bed Wetting: Only a Geordie Shore lass could get so drunk that she wets the bed. Aged 23. This p***-poor (sorry) exhibition of decorum was one of the highlights of the summer 2013 show - and made us laugh so much WE nearly had an accident...
