Tam Cowan: I'd Loved to Have Seen Macca Get Chance to Do Breaststroke with Caprice and Brigitte; BIG BROTHER CHIEFS' BOOB


Byline: Tam Cowan

DAY THREE in Celebrity Big Brother house and two vital ingredients are missing - celebrities (hands up if you've heard of Bez or Kenzie) and Frank McAvennie.

Aye, I think you're better off where you are, Macca.

Celebrity Big Brother without McAvennie is almost as disappointing as an Old Firm derby without Neil Lennon. …
