Celebrity Big Brother contestants Jim Davidson and Linda Nolan have won immunity from the show's first public vote for having the most star-studded anecdotes.

Comic Davidson and singer Nolan were chosen by their fellow housemates after sharing their tales and cannot now be evicted on Wednesday.

The latest series of the Channel 5 show, also featuring Lee Ryan from boyband Blue, entertainer Lionel Blair and former world heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield, started on Friday.

Housemates were told they had to be handcuffed to each other but several of the pairs have now won the right to be separated.

Daily Mail columnist Liz Jones and pint-sized N-Dubz rapper Dappy were first to be unshackled, with Nolan and Davidson's victory in the anecdotes task, called The Building Blocks of Celebrity, also earning them that prize.

Actress Jasmine Waltz and The Only Way is Essex's Sam Faiers were uncuffed last night, having been voted the pair to have bonded the most over the first 24 hours.

Dappy and Jones are among three pairs who will face eviction this week.

Others taking part include The Apprentice runner-up Luisa Zissman, Made in Chelsea's Ollie Locke and glamour model Casey Batchelor.
