    I can create a new thread but I'm confused by the dates. A 'winter 2018' season already aired? :confused: What do I call this one?

    This is the summer edition, how is that confusing with the winter one? I don't get it.

    You’d expect winter to have occurred before the end of the year. I suppose technically winter runs into the following year but it’s not normally referred to in that way.

    It doesn’t really make any odds to the summer one though.

    If it started in January it was in winter and it was in 2018. It's just that if you ask anyone to name the seasons, they always go Spring Summer Autumn Winter so we see Winter as the "end" of the year. Winter starts with the Solstice, around the 21st December so less than two weeks of winter happens in the same calendar year as the Solstice.

    Why the fuck are you still watching this anyway?

    Yes, not realising the last one started in January, the concept of winter preceding summer in a calendar year threw me.

    Ever since I started following the solstices and equinoxes, I am far less surprised by weather. People ooing and cooing about snow at the end of February (yup, it's still winter) or sunny days in early September (yup, still summer) washes over me.

    I'm such a hippy.

    Anyway, I want them to really scrape the fucking barrel this year. I want Tommy Robinson, Brock Turner, and Nick Griffin.

    Stormy Daniels is making a fortune in US just taking her bra off, as if she's gonna do CBB for THAT.

    Oh no, not bloody Nadine Dorries. I don't want to hear her droning on about Brexit night after night.

    Noel Edmonds and Kirsty Allie are so unlikely.

    I don’t know. Kirstie Alley is probably a lot more likely than you would think. Noel Edmonds is definitely not happening.

    I seem to remember Alley did Dancing With The Stars a few years back. Has she done any other reality TV?

    I think she had a show a few years ago regarding her weight loss.

    Is she fat or thin at the moment? I can’t believe she is only 3 years off of 70. I had her down as mid 50’s for some reason.

    Kirstie Alley is a Scientologist. She needs all the cash she can get! David Miscavige is known for “renewing” the top level courses at £100,000 a pop.

    I don't think Edmonds's ego would allow him to go in with someone being paid twice what he is.

    Noel is fucking batshit these days. It would be a car crash. He'd be wearing all his "Lloyds Are Robbing Bastards" t-shirts and boring the others shitless before losing the rag and taking a shit in the pool whilst screaming about how much he misses Mike Smith.

    I think it should be an S Club House and filled with the original 7 plus the Juniors.

    Day 2 and Jo has proposed a ‘Final Solution’ to the cooking and cleaning rota, a choice of words that leaves some of the housemates looking perturbed. A desperate Tina has started a kitchen fire in order to subtly promote her solo masterpiece FIRE - OUT NOW. Confused, and without a chaperone for the first time since fame, Rachel has spent the night sleeping in the oven.

    Later tonight a live lion will be released into the house. Remember if you want your faves to have a fighting chance of survival vote NOW for who you want to receive a weapon.

    Don't be ridiculous. It would be a jumper, not a t-shirt.

    This is true - he's probably knitting himself a "DLT Is Innocent" tank top as we speak...

    That seems likely at this stage unfortunately. The head of Channel 5 has said he’d rather the show wasn’t on the channel but he likes the ratings it brings in, which are obviously ok the decline. Unless there’s a major uptick in those, I don’t see them renewing the contracts.

    Haven’t the production company just lengthened the lease on the house?

    I imagine it will probably move to another channel. Maybe that rando one in the depths of nowhere that Katie Price’s new reality show is on.

    The celeb version is costly with declining returns. I'd like to think ITV2 could pick it up as I do very much love CBB. It's such a shame, that the better show is the one at risk.

    It could be a real boon for a lesser channel, so long as they could afford it.

    It’s on the way after CBB. Even scheduling them like that seems like a swansong, at least on C5.

    I wish they would end with CBB and go out on a high at least.

    It was usually before the Celeb version, wasn't it? Scheduling it after is almost like they want people not to give a shit.
