Former Celebrity Big Brother star Chantelle Houghton has declared her love for the new-style CELEBRITY HIJACK show.

In an interview with ITN, Chantelle said: "It's nice to see all of the celebrities be Big Brother and I enjoyed watching Matt Lucas he was good.

"I like BIG BROTHER so I'm enjoying the whole lot really."

Chantelle hit people's TV screens in one of the most successful series of CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER, back in 2006.

As an unknown contestant she was given the task of persuading her celebrity housemates, including GEORGE OSBOURNE and Pete Burns, that she was part of a famous girl group.

She succeeded and went on to win the show.

Meanwhile, one of BIG BROTHER 8's contestants has also being discussing the celebrity show's new format.

Jonty Stern told This is Hertfordshire that it is nicer to have some mature contestants- all the current housemates are aged between 18 and 21 years of age.

"It adds to the variety in there. Big Brother tends to be dominated by younger people anyway," he concluded.
