    For the iconic exchange with Narinder about Stevie Wonder and hating London A-Gay Josh.

    I wish we’d seen some MAD OLD PENNY (33)!

    Oh of course, he had the journey of being accepted as a gay man - does it say something about how far we've come that I genuinely didn't consider that as a factor? It was still a huge deal in 2001 for someone to be so prominent and open about it on TV.

    Well there we go, a bit of a muted end to the series but I've enjoyed it on the whole!

    Do you think any of the others deserved it more?

    In hindsight probably not... I was just being bitter about my favourite housemates usually getting the boot early :D

    My heart is breaking at that Nicky picture. It looks like her skeleton is eating her.

    Oh dear at Helen. She's like Bonnie Tyler: the early years.

    Josh isn't as sporno as I thought I remembered.

    Ugh at the sight of Helen. I remember her getting tipsy in that mohair number with her heavy eyelids at Dean.

    You'd think we'd have a quick montage of towel dropper Penny just for some fan service. Well, I'm only 5 minutes in so the episode is young.

    I see she's wearing it cooking lunch. It must have never been off her.

    He's a bit skinny for 2020, but I do still fancy Dean.

    This is worse than season 4 so far.

    I hope Narinder has been kicking off on twitter about Brian. When did the tide turn on him - I'm pretty sure he was liked by the show until he was replaced by RPG Elf Queen Emma.

    I think Narinder and Brian are still friends.

    Everything I have watched her on recently she seems the happiest she has ever been, but she is clearly in a bad way.

    Narinder's twitter is quite good. I don't remember too much about her on the show except being foil for Brian, but I want her on Loose Women now.

    Actually, a Big Brother contestant version of the Matalan Women talk show would be even better. Narinder, Nicola DP Holt, Nadia, Penny, the possibilities are endless.

    I wish they would put their names up on the screen. The one who I think is called Elizabeth I've been thinking was also called Helen.

    Didn't she and Brian have a major falling out two years ago? Maybe they've patched it up since though.

    She's still friends with Helen these days I know.

    it’s really not - I haven’t seen it in a few weeks since I blocked her but she was really dragged for suggesting all sorts of moronic right-wing things about coronavirus.

    Oh well, I must have been blinded by her bikini abs and promises of winning 10k. I didn't follow her anyway.

    It looks like they are no longer friends according to a story in 2018, you are right. :agog:

    After some confusion it appears this is the real version of I Want It All, on Spotify as of today thanks to @aquaplex

    Poor Narinder. You'd have have thought by now she'd have got a job or a hobby or something

    She wrote that book about Big Brother a few years ago. She’d only need a part time job to supplement the nearly hundreds of pence that must have earned her.

    Viewing figures averaged 368k, although the trend over the course of 10 episodes was very much downwards. The first episode had by far the highest with 650k+, while the last was the lowest at under 250k.

    That opening night figure seems like it was the overnight figure only though - with 7 day catch up it came in at just under 1.1m, which gave it a 9.9% audience share and the #1 of the week on E4.

    I really think they lost momentum after the first few because of too many celebrity episodes.

    I don't have the exact figures, but this is how the ten episodes ranked on overnights

    01 Ep 1 (BB1)
    02 Ep 3 (BB7)
    03 Ep 2 (CBB4)
    04 Ep 5 (CBB3)
    05 Ep 7 (BB3)
    06 Ep 4 (CBB6)
    07 Ep 9 (BB6)
    08 Ep 6 (CBB4)
    09 Ep 8 (CBB7)
    10 Ep 10 (BB2)

    The general trend was clearly down, but as someone as pointed out, each time a civilian episode followed a celebrity version (episodes 3, 7 and 9), it beat it.

    I'm sure the job offers will just flood in now. He should have just accepted the 10 seconds, made lemonade and used sign language to call Davina a cow. I do feel sorry for him though, there is definitely a whiff of get back in your place, which makes Davina's bonding with Rylan look even more fake than it already is.

    It just all shows how ill equipped he was to present the show emotionally and professionally, doesn't it.
