The Scottish actor entered the CBB house on Wednesday night, as one of the "new stars" alongside Ray J, Brandon Block and Bianca Gascoigne.

James stands apart from these housemates - as well as the "all star" returning celebs like Heidi and Spencer Pratt, James Jordan and Callum Best - because, well, his career hardly needs the boost from a reality TV show appearance.
