Cirque- Backstage at the Big Top - Week 3. 25th October 2007

Who would have ever dreamt that they would be seeing Brian recreating a scene from Casablanca in the Big Top, but that is exactly what we were treated to this week, when Brian took on the role of Rick Blaine to assist Lady Isabella put her latest acting lessons to the test. Filmed in black and white with the pair dressed the part they took it all quite seriously until reaching the immortal lines of “Here’s looking at you kid!” at which point they dissolved into laughter.

Interviews this week with Stacey, Emily, Kyal, and Luke, and Ritchie gave everyone the latest news on his injury.

Dressed in a revealing black, grey and silver sparkly top Brian this week attempted the cloud swing. After an initial hesitancy Brian got into the ‘swing’ of things and even managed to hang from the swing by just his knees.

The ‘backstage’ section this week featured the costume designer for Cirque de Celebrity, Venetia Ercolani. She explained how the designs for the celebrity costumes were decided each week and that they had used in excess of a million rhinestones already on the costumes. Brian was particularly looking forward to one costume she was making for him for a future week in a metallic Lycra in diamonds in a turquoise and gold with diamonds all around the sides.

On Sunday evening Hannah Waterman was the latest celebrity to leave the show and Brian had a final chat with her.
