    Now I've missed the first 15 minutes I'm not sure I can be bothered.

    What's the theme this year?

    Brexit/ Britain. The house is quite different looking, but then it's always much of a muchness.

    Apparently there's some muscle guy in who used to fuck that woman from The Apprentice who did Big Brother and who has insured his penis for 15 million quid as he nearly snapped it off once.

    This actually looks quite good - the Asian couple seem like the old type of contestants and those Nigerian sisters have a lot of potential :D

    I'm not remotely in the mood for any of these noisy cunts or indeed any Brexit theme but some LIVE ACCIDENTS wouldn't go amiss

    That was a really poor and boring launch night. At least they have Steps performing on BOTS next week.

    Initial scores out of 10:

    Arthur 2/10 - could he have looked any less interested to go in? 'It's just so jokes isn't it'... seriously?
    Ellie 4/10 - standard BB contestant - actually used the line 'I'm pretty mad' + 1 for slut dropping -1 for talking in the third person all the time
    Lotan 3/10 - he scores a point for his body. But what a cunt. I think even the female voting public will find him too arrogant. What a weirdo. Was he coked up? 'You look black'... one of his first lines! :D
    Imran and Sukhvinder 9/10 and 8/10 - I have a general aversion to people going in as pairs but glad they are being treated separately... I'll give him an extra mark for his little 'we're here to try and unite the nation' speech. If a couple can go in and do something good by going on this show then please do. A really interesting choice of housemates.
    Charlotte and Mandy 6/10 and 7/10 - I love how awful these two are. They are another interesting choice, but I've taken a mark off for another pair that know each other. What's your type? 'Breathing'
    Deborah and Hannah 6/10 and 7/10 - a breath of fresh air and loving their pride in their heritage of both Nigeria and East London. Another lovely reception from the crowd! Deborah loses a mark for her laugh. 'Can I call you Sukh for short?' 'No... you can call me Sukhvinder'... :D
    Joe 6/10 - I know I'm going to hate him later, but in terms of casting, I think he's a decent choice again. Think he'll be the biggest stirrer in there by a mile. 'If you got somefing to say, say it to me face.'
    Rebecca and Kieran 2/10 and 1/10 - they're the epitome of what I hate about BB casting. They've tried to give them the boss and employee twist, but that is literally the ONLY thing that makes them in anyway interesting and Kieran's ' I don't like how Britain's run' are blatantly the words of a non-voter.
    Kayleigh 2/10 - Awful. Standard.
    Raph 6/10 - Torn. He's obviously dreadful, but he sounds like a 'controversial for VT' guy. I love the fact he's a huge Big Brother fan. Bless him 'I love that it's like diverse... I'm half Japanese'... :D
    Chantelle -1/10 - is a model?! She's a model? Really? AWFUL in every way. The Manchester speech took her down one mark. You're no Ariana Grande love.
    Tom - 1/10 - The worst choice of the four possible... obviously.


    Why did NO-ONE stand in the right position when they came out to meet Emma? Surely they did some kind of rehearsal at some point?

    Also why did they start it at 8:30? They KNEW they'd get expletives :D They are so going to have pay a fine for the number of times housemates swore before 9pm.

    Well I thought that was overall not too bad. I rate 8 of the housemates reasonable choices at this point.

    Imran, Sukvinder and Fanny Flaps girl are my favourites right now. Overall a much more 'classic' bunch of housemates than the showers from the last couple of years*.

    *except Adjoa, who is timeless.

    Imran, Sukvinder, Deborah and Hannah are the four that stood out as the most 'classic BB' for me.

    Chantelle, the gobby Manc, was on Ex On The Beach and she lasted a day before screaming "WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" in everyone's faces and being booted out for almost scalping another girl. She's the potential to be absolutely nuts.

    Who are you all kidding? We've had those awful gobby models and such like since Season 2...

    Wow... Sukhvinder surely favourite to go on Friday the way she's been banging on. What a sudden fall from grace.

    SO FAR SO GOOD. I hope Chanelle sticks around for a while.

    The 'lads' are beyond tedious. Imran and Sukhvinder are great choices, fabulously old school housemates.

    I hate the dark blue they're using for the name captions. :evil:

    This is a decent first week, though I think Mandy was a loss - would much rather have seen her daughter go. But as she wasn't up for eviction, I was hoping for a Rebecca eviction.

    Mandy was absolutely FUMING to go wasn't she...

    I hate this Tom thing. I hope it ends ASAP.

    Do Imran and Sukhvinder REALLY think that the world is flat?? Who really thinks that?

    I think of Arthur as much more of a villain than Suki, but obviously the general public hate her because it's much easier to hate women, especially those of ethnic minority backgrounds...

    Arthur is definitely reminding me of a 2017 Nasty Nick type Villain

    Sukvinder is completely off her rockers and I am loving it, tonights episode when she was under the duvet :D

    Ratings for this are appalling - under a million the last couple of nights while Love Island is comfortably hitting 1.5m

    They've thrown some celebs in to try and attract viewers I read yesterday. I watched up til Sunday but haven't seen it all week and haven't really thought about it.

    I gave it a go on launch night but this is the first series since 2000 I won't be watching. as soon as I saw that hunky man chosen over the 3 contestants with personalities I knew that I couldn't subject myself to another 9 weeks of the channel 5 audience and I not seeing eye-to-eye. It also feels somewhat redundant at the moment - there is so so much going on in the world and there just isn't time for it

    Appalling? It's been that for about three or four years right?

    I've watched about 5 or 6 episodes. It's OK, but not totally engaging. Sukhvinder is ridiculous.

    I thought I read at the weekend that the opening night was down 20% on last year, and most nightly shows have been down by a figure around that as well.

    I actually watched this tonight and it confirmed what I wrote here - just a bunch of z-list celebrities playing kiss chase, sponsored by Absolute Acai Berry. The only two 'normal' housemates appear to have walked out tonight.

    Such a shame - if they put actual people in they could turn ratings around, but if you wanted to see this trash then you'd just watch the more honest portrayal on ITV's "Love Island"
