I was watching it in the UK, dead boring compared to what it was like a few years back, I shall continue watching it though because Charlie is lush, gay but georgous!

Yes..... but the very first Big Brother was wonderful entertainment.

There were real personalities on that show, especially the gorgeous pouting Melanie Hill (pic attached) who is now something important at Marie Claire magazine (last I heard) ............ the winner Craig giving his winnings to some disabled woman (can't remember if she was one of his relatives, she may have been).

And who can forget Nichola, who smeared her body with paint and made nice patterns on the wall..... and who went on to become a hardcore porn star.

The show went downhill when the producers deliberately started choosing contestants who they knew would be controversial ("Hmmm... there's a black inmate, so we'll need a racist..." etc), rather than just going for interesting people with a personality and a story to tell.

The same happened in Australia - they canned it last year. The first couple of years, there were real characters in the house. Then it just became an endless line of wannabe swimsuit models and gay fashion designers - all too worried about their people on the outside seeing them doing anything to have a good time. Banning the excessive consumption of alcohol in the house after the second or third year didn't help matters either.

This is BRILLIANT news!

Had a real struggle with sitting and watching someone going to the toilet and hearing seeing too much!

I think the NHS should be put on alert cause therer are some real addicts of the show about.

Yipeee

i don't see how pete bennett has made £1.5 mill, he was the guy with tourettes, and i've not seen him or heard anything about him since the show ended, but maybe i've just missed it...

no, he was a couple of years ago...he was a musician and apparently him being on the series helped de-mystify tourettes a bit, he was very funny and open about it...
