Gareth Thomas

Welsh rugby legend Shane Williams has backed his former team-mate Gareth Thomas to win Celebrity Big Brother.

Thomas – who Williams calls ‘Alfie’ – is one of twelve celebrities in the house, alongside Natalie Cassidy, Frankie Cocozza and more.

Williams said: “I genuinely think that he will be there right to the end.”

“Is it Natalie who was Sonia? She is doing very well at the moment because she had that task at the start that put her in a strong position.”

“But Alfie will get stronger as the show goes on.”

“I think he will be there right until the end and he will have a good chance of winning it. I think he is the only Welsh person in there, so hopefully all Wales will vote for him.

“I have never voted before but I am going to be voting to keep him in there. I’ll make an exception and vote for Alfie.”

“He has been doing very well. You have got on there a lot of celebrities who are used to the limelight, and with Alfie what you see is what you get, and that comes across very well on TV.”

“He is a very contagious personality and will get on well with everyone.”

Another Welsh celebrity watching the show this year is glamour model and former Big Brother contestant Imogen Thomas.

She tweeted: “Just watching cbb catch up. I love Natalie Cassidy and her task. ‘Wag’ Nicola McLean is a fake. And as for the other one…….”

The ‘other one’ that Imogen was referring to was of course Natasaha Giggs, who – like Imogen – had an affair with Manchester United footballer Ryan Giggs.

Finally in Celebrity Big Brother news, TOWIE star Kirk Norcross has been trying it on with model Georgia Salpa.

He said: “You want to get in the hot tub or the bath? I was going to anyway. But you’re blowing me out, that’s cool, if you’d had more wine you would, wouldn’t you?”

Kirk’s efforts didn’t work though so he will no doubt be trying again very soon!
