Depends if there are any hot chicks in it. Why not? Imogen was in it last year and she ended up having a sex tape, so you never know...

As much as I may want to, I cant really avoid it in our house. My mum is addicted to BB and has the livefeed running 24/7 when its on so Im kinda stuck with it.

I really wouldnt mind if it was just the evening shows and BBLB. But the livefeed kills me!

I'll watch the first show to see who goes in to the house, but then I will try to avoid watching any more.

Count me in !

Is it starting late this year feels so. Well what will we have this year ? A BB4 year or a BB5 year. I hope it is better than last year. There were really only two nice people in the show last year in Glynn and Pete. The rest were just too aware of the way the competition runs. I also hope thereis less manipulation by Channel 4 and Endemol this year.

I loved last years Big Brother with Nicki and Pete.  I know that channel 4 edit it to get ratings but everything that we see did happen so it's kind of a twisted reality... I have some great memories from watching Big Brother.  Helen from series 2, Jade (series 3) Alex dancing behind the door, the fight from series 5 and the under the table moment and Nicki's rants lol there's so amny others too... it's so addictive to see what these people are doing! I hope this one isn't rubish though as Big Brother seems to be good on number 1, 3, 5 and 7 last year.  2 was ok, 4 and 6 were pretty average... maybe i'm just making this up lol - just hope they top last years somehow?

Oh god help us. Is this back again. Trouble is I never watch it but it's always on the radio and papers so you can't avoid it if you want to.

I did not say the news. I mean just normal chat on the radio it's talked about. Yes I don't read the newspaper articles about it but it just always seems in your face all the time.

I understand if people like the show each to there own I say. It just hard to avoid if you have no interest in it

No. Its about as enjoyable as watching an orphanage burn down. In fact I'd only watch it if once all the contestants were locked in they burnt the BB house down.

Why have they got a bath in the living room I don`t get it?  I`m not sure I`m going to watch this time after the way the producers dragged out the bullying in Celebrity Big Brother house to boost ratings and didn`t intervene and kick the nasty cows out because they didn`t think they were being specifically racist. I don`t think they were either but they were picking unfairly on her and that should have been clamped down on straight away. Maybe if they make a point this time stating no bullying will be tolerated then maybe I`ll let them off. I know it didn`t hurt Shelpa in the long run in fact its given her a huge boost  but just because she didn`t complain isn`t a good enough excuse. The bullied rarely do and just grin and bear it. If they could fight back effectively they wouldn`t be bullied in the first place. She did quite a good job standing upto Jade mind. Anyway thats old boring news now and after what those girls went through when they came out you`d think noone would dare do that again but almost each year someone seems to get picked on in there and becomes an unfair scapegoat for the others fustrations and hang ups.

Ah, the annual sanitarium for locking a selected group of the egomaniacal dredges of society away from the rest of us for the Summer.  It would be great if we could just make these few changes....

  • More inmates, er, contestants
  • Scrap the voting, no more of this 'letting them back out' crap
  • No more camera's, once they're in, we don't need to see anymore, surely?!

Yes, but they can't just interfer whenever they like, it's supposed to be reality tv.  Wouldn't be reality if they call someone to the diary room everytime something bad is said ect... and they did clamp down on it in the end.  Big Brother 5 with the fight was alot worse then celeb big brother this year.  It's just the whole thing was blown out of porportion.  Why did nobody intervene when bully Pete Burns ripped into Tracy? Cause they're both white? Bullying is bullying! And the year before (with george galloway, Michael Barrymore and Pete Burns was soooo much worse for bullying.  Big Brother is there to ensure the safety of housemates not stop every tantrum or we would have no show

Bring it on, can't wait! Though it's bound to wind me up when there is some absolute arsehole like Nikki on it whom everyone loves. I still haven't got over my hatred for her.

No, she made it with her (now ex) boyfriend before she went in the house, it just surfaced because she was in the public eye. I have never seen it

Nobody know who's hosting Big Mouth since Russell Brand quit?

As predictable as the changing of the seasons and the tides of the sea. Monkeyshaver's annual anti BB rant. This is said with genuine affection. It wouldn't be the same without you.
