Thousands brave rain for BB fame

THEY braved the dismal skies and pouring rain looking for their 15 minutes of fame.

Thousands of Big Brother hopefuls turned up to Glasgow's SECC at the weekend having travelled from all corners of Scotland to audition for the show.

Ranging from the outgoing to the downright eccentric, many were dressed in kilts, some had on fancy-dress and one man turned up in a sunflower costume, all hoping to gain a place on the popular reality TV show.

Would-be contestants queued from seven in the morning to ensure their audition spot. Some were still waiting at seven in the evening.

The show is set to air in the summer and will be the eighth series of the fly-on-the-wall reality show.

The housemates in Celebrity Big Brother were today coping with the second walkout from the house.

Film director Ken Russell, 79, quit the show yesterday after bust-ups with Jade Goody, right, and her mum, Jackiey.
