played Michael Barrymore [Series 4 (2006)- Runner Up] in Celebrity Big Brother

Michael Barrymore was a housemate in the fourth series of Celebrity Big Brother. He entered on Day One after the non-celebrity Chantelle Houghton, he was immediately recognized by most of the housemates, except the American contingent of Dennis Rodman and Traci Bingham. Barrymore was a famous face during the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s in Great Britain thanks to his comedy game shows and variety shows which include Strike it Lucky/Rich, Barrymore and My Kind of Music.

Barrymore found the first few days an emotional experience, this was because at the time he had been off alcohol and drugs for 4 and a half years and had been through an extremely terrible time in his private life. However, he lightened up on Day 3 when, as part of a task, he was required to perform a comedy routine. He did and it brought the house down, a famous photograph from the time showed Barrymore impersonating the German dictator Adolf Hitler. On Day 4, he was ranked the most famous housemate in a task. Barrymore famously clashed with Jodie Marsh and was accused of bullying her, along with George Galloway and Pete Burns.
