2001 | 8 episodes
Celebrity Big Brother 2001, also known as Celebrity Big Brother 1, was the first series of Celebrity Big Brother. In aid of the British charity Comic Relief, six celebrities entered the Big Brother 1 house for eight days. The series premiered on March 9, 2001 and concluded on March 16, 2001. While Channel 4 aired daily highlights shows, BBC One also aired 10-minute updates. Along with these updates, they also aired the finale, which was part of the Red Nose Day telethon. Celebrity Big Brother 1 was the first Big Brother series to feature a live launch, something which is now common for every season of the series. Initially meant to be a one-time series, the success of Celebrity Big Brother 1 later influenced the decision to make Celebrity Big Brother an annual occurrence, much like the main series. To date, twelve seasons have aired. The premise of the series remained similar to that of the main series. The series revolves around six celebrities living in a house together with no communication with the outside world. They are filmed constantly during their time in the house, and can have no communication with those filming them. Every other day in the game, each contestant, referred to as "housemates", choose two people to be up for nomination. The two or more people with the most votes will be nominated to leave the house. The viewers then decide which of the nominees should leave, with the selected person leaving during a live show. This process continued until only three housemates remained, in which the viewers would decide which of the housemates would win the series. Whereas the winner of the main series receives a cash prize, the celebrity edition of the series sees them competing for charity. A housemate can be ejected from the show for breaking rules, such as discussing nominations when not permitted.

Celebrity Big Brother 2005, also known as Celebrity Big Brother 3, was the third series of the British reality television series Celebrity Big Brother.

It was won by dancer Mark "Bez" Berry. This was the first series of Celebrity Big Brother to air since 2002, as Teen Big Brother: The Experiment and Big Brother Panto were broadcast in its place in 2003 and 2004, respectively. This was the first series where the celebrities were being paid for there appearance rather than doing it for charity like the previous two series, however a percentage of phone vote funds went towards helping victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami. John McCririck, who was the second housemate to be evicted, represented this series in Ultimate Big Brother in 2010, where he was the first to be evicted.

Eleven housemates entered the house on Launch Night, only ten of them were being paid for their appearance, Chantelle Houghton who was the first to enter the house had actually auditioned for the sixth non-celebrity series the previous summer, but was instead selected to enter the celebrity series. Her secret mission was to pretend she was a member of girlband Kandy Floss, she convinced the others that she was a celebrity, and was ultimately allowed to stay, failure would have resulted in her departure from the house. This series was notable for a number of controversies, such as the participation of Respect MP George Galloway. 1980's pop star Pete Burns brought a coat made from gorilla fur among his possessions, the coat was removed from the house on Day 16, following complaints from viewers and housemates, it was later discovered the coat was made from colobus monkey.

The complaints received detailed concerns that housemate Shilpa Shetty had been subjected to bullying. Goody, Danielle Lloyd and Jo O'Meara's behaviour towards Shetty sparked widespread anger and demonstrations in India, where the alleged racism was reported on the news, and led Big Brother's main sponsor Carphone Warehouse to suspend its sponsorship of the show. As of 19 January 2007, a Channel 4 spokesman agreed that participants should be made aware of the controversy, probably explaining the recent explanations and apologies tendered by the housemates and their complete lack of surprise after learning about the latest eviction.
