Will and AJ CBB 2024 interview

27 Feb, 2024 - 10:06 AM by James
Celebrity Big Brother starts Monday 4th March, 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.



Q&A with Will Jordan and AJ Odudu.

Celebrity Big Brother is back! How does it feel to be presenting the iconic show which will see an array of famous faces enter the Big Brother house?

Will: I couldnít be more excited! Some of the most iconic moments from Big Brother throughout the years have come from the Celebrity Big Brother series. When people think of Big Brother nowadays they often think of the GC, they think of ĎDavidís dead!í These were all given to us by celebs.

AJ: Iím so excited! Off the back of the success of the civilian show, itís amazing that we get to host the celebrity series. Itís created such iconic moments in the past - we canít wait for the 2024 edition!


What can you tell us about the series this time around? Are there any surprises in store?

Will: Our biggest surprise will be seeing who gets out of those cars! We have absolutely no idea who will be going in.

AJ: But you know, as with every series previously weíve seen so many twists and turns so weíve no doubt there will be some up Big Brotherís sleeveÖ

Will: Last series, Big Brother himself was more of a character, more consistent and more mischievous. Elements like that, when applied to the celebrity version are going to be dialled up! The team is so talented and creative, thereís no doubt it will be just as great this time around.


Excitingly, itís been revealed this showís launch night will be LIVE, how do you think presenting live will compare? Are there any elements about this youíre particularly excited or nervous about?

AJ: Thereís an energy you get from live TV that canít be translated, all of the nervous energy from every single celebrity that steps out the car will be captured and seen. Any awkward moments - if anyone stumbles and trips over their dress, we will see it!

Will: And that will just be me!

AJ: Thereís an edge. Anything can happen! Bring it on!


Since re-launching Big Brother last year, are there any pre-show rituals or habits youíve developed as hosts?

Will: Pre show, I leave my dressing room, meet AJ in the corridor, get a look at her outfit for the first time, which is always amazing. See that weíre matching! Weíve been wearing the same designers without planning it. Itís weird, the synergy! Before going on to the set, we go to the Late & Live studio, and thereís always a great crowd in there, so we get geeíed up by the crowd, everyoneís really excited, thereís a real party atmosphere. We do a really traditional hands in the middle.

AJ: We always go ĎBig Brother!í Itís squad hands. We do it - even when thereís pandemonium going on. We always do it!

Will: I think itís probably the most exciting moment of my career, those moments before we go out. The outdoor crowd - Iíve never experienced anything like it. The passion, the energy, the screams, the volume, the banners! Itís an incredible buzz.


How does it feel to be working together again?

AJ: Itís so fun! I feel incredibly lucky. Not everyone gets to do their dream job with their actual mate!

Will: Itís so surreal!

AJ: I personally feel very, very safe with Will because I know that no matter what happens, Willís got my back on and off camera so itís very reassuring. Which is what you need for live TV!

Will: It doesnít feel like work!


Is there anything youíll do differently this time around?

Will: I donít think so. Iím not very good at watching back what I do. I watched AJís Late & Live shows back and I can tell you now - no notes from me!

AJ: I watched myself back as well, and yeah, no notes! (laughs) In addition to that, itís all about the audience. Who goes - they decide. So mine and Willís job is to be reactive, we react to the housemates and the stories that have unfolded. We literally do not know what will happen, so we canít plan! We donít know whoís going in, we donít know what theyíre going to do, what theyíre going to say, or what reaction theyíre going to come out to.


Youíre both presenting the show, but how do you think you would fare as a CBB housemate? What would be your plan for entering the house? What sort of things would you pack?

Will: When Iím at home I do wear as few clothes as possible, I tend to walk in through the front door and pretty much strip off. So if I was feeling very comfortable in the house I donít know if Iíd do the same - maybe all Iíd need to pack is some clean pairs of pants and some shorts, that would be it!

AJ: Iím a cosy girl! Having said that, I like to get dressed up all the time. So I feel like Iíd have to pack some really nice, comfortable but chic, fluffy house slippers. In terms of what housemate Iíd be, I think Iíd bring a lot of fun, and vibrancy. Itíd be a good time! However, Iíd really struggle with other peopleís mess. I would be a whinger.

Will: I think weíd work well together then. If Iím feeling a bit nervous or out of place, my default setting is to clean up the whole time as it gives me something to do. Maybe actually I just take a pinny - and I spend the whole time hoovering, doing the dishes.

AJ: TV gold!



How do you think youíd get on living together 24/7 in the Big Brother house? Do either of you have any habits that would get on each otherís nerves?

AJ: I bite my nails, so that is an annoying habit!

Will: Would I pick my nose? Thatís the question.

AJ: You would, and Iíd have to say stop doing that. Will wouldnít be able to pick his nose in peace, I wouldnít be able to bite my nails in peace. But I actually think people who get on the most at home are people that are good communicators. We wouldnít be just huffing around - weíd have it out!

Will: Weíre both from big families so that probably helps. It takes a lot to annoy me in a domestic situation! Iím one of 4 kids, Iíve seen it all.


What advice would you offer this yearís celebrity housemates?

AJ: If you donít have anything nice to say, donít say anything at all! Just donít speak! If you ever saw me on that show being absolutely silent, youíd know I was livid and seething (laughs).

Will: Just remember whatever happens in there, itís not that deep! Donít hold grudges. Youíre there to have fun. Donít forget itís an entertainment show. Youíre there to entertain and to be entertained!


Whatís your favourite room in the Big Brother house?

Will: The Diary Room. Thinking of the GC, her Diary Room rants were incredible. Nikki [Grahame] and the ĎWho is she?í rant - that was in the Diary Room. Speidi, plotting things - there were some great Diary Room moments from those two.

AJ: I absolutely love the kitchen - thatís where all of the arguments happen. Itís about who is eating what? Whoís not washing what? All of that. All of the pettiness is around the kitchen. But I also love the jacuzzi because historically a lot of stuff happens in or around the jacuzzi. Iím here for it.

Will: Last season, Henry and Jordanís jacuzzi kiss - that was the steamy snog and a great moment from last series. That was when their relationship heated up. It reached boiling point!


Given Celebrity Big Brother has notoriously featured a number of diva demands, what are you expecting to see on this yearís shopping list?

Will: Heated rollers! Not just straighteners.

AJ: Heated rollers. Champagne, caviar with crisps. And cheese.

Will: Sushi. Celebs love their sushi.


If you could pick one task from last yearís Big Brother for the Celebrity housemates to complete, what would it be and why?

AJ: I like the Big Wigs! I loved the power trips.

Will: Anything that has hierarchy because those celebs arenít going to be used being at the bottom of a hierarchy. I think the ĎAntsí one was a good one. When it kicks off and they're having really serious arguments but dressed as giant ants.

AJ, what outfits can we expect from this series? Anything you can tease on your launch night look?

AJ: Itís a surprise! I donít know. All Iím saying is, there are going to be some custom-made fits. Theyíre going to be some shop-bought bits. Sparkles, colour, cut-outs. As for the latex, it might be back by popular demand!

Will, last time around you got a facial in preparation for the first show. Howís your skincare regime going? What beauty and skincare prep can we expect from you this time around?

Will: I've maintained my moisturising. Daily, I face-wash, tone and moisturise. Can you believe it? I was with a mate on Saturday and he was asking when Celebrity Big Brother starts. I said it was two weeks on Monday and he said ĎYouíve got time to get your nose waxed.í Thank you - very supportive! I think that is one thing Iím going to have to do this time before the show. Get the old nose waxed. Beauty sleep as well, try and get some rest so I donít have bags under my eyes.


Big Brother was the start of a new era of reality TV. Whatís your guilty reality TV pleasure?

Will: Below Deck. Canít get enough of it. Iíve seen it all. If youíre not a Below Deck watcher then Iíd say start with Below Deck: Mediterranean. I have watched a lot of Vanderpump Rules as well.

AJ: I donít feel guilty about any reality TV - Iím obsessed. I love Selling Sunset. I love Olivia Attwoodís Getting Filthy Rich. Obviously, Love Island - Iíve been obsessed with Love Island: All Stars.


New year, new series of Big Brother. Reflecting on the 2023 launch, name one thing that is IN for 2024, and OUT for 2023.

Will: Celebrity Big Brother is in!

AJ: Bad vibes are out!

Will: My nose hairs?

AJ: Willís nose hairs are out.

Will: But my chest hairs are in!

AJ: All three of them out (laughs)



Celebrity Big Brother starts Monday 4th March, 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
