Channel 5 sources have revealed that Newry Mount Everest climber Terence ‘Banjo’ Bannon is to be the next Celebrity to enter the Big Brother House in a surprise entrance on Friday night’s live show.
‘Banjo’ who is best known for becoming the second person from the North of Ireland to reach the summit of Mount Everest in 2003 is a Newry icon, even having his own monument in the city to celebrate his achievement.
Speaking from a secret location in London via phone Mr Bannon said:
“I’m very excited to be going in to the Celebrity Big Brother House on Friday night. It’s an absolute privilege for me to have been asked to go in to the house with celebrity giants such as Gemma Collins, Christopher Maloney and Jonathan Cheban, I mean, I’m just completely star struck at the very thought of rubbing shoulders with these stars. I will be sure to represent Newry in the best way possible by getting stuck in to the women and the free beer, yeeeoo.”
We wish you all the very best Banjo.
