    I suspect I may be alone in my love for this programme but having just watched the first episode I am GLUED.

    Dani Dyer is very Stacey Solomon isn’t she?

    Biggest ITV2 rating ever, isn't it?

    I didn’t realise that. It really is quite a phenomenon of its genre.

    I don't know if I'd agree of its genre, given that the viewing figures are still below what other reality shows were regularly getting many years ago, but it certainly is phenomenal of its day. And I suspect even more so amongst a certain demographic.

    A demographic you're old enough to be mother of, Rita... :D

    Yes, I suppose putting it up against early Big Brother viewing figures it’s relatively low. It more than doubled last years opening figures, so will be interesting to see how it holds up.

    Yes Lolly, I know I am probably too old to be watching and enjoying this crap. I would argue though that I actually look younger than one of the contestants. 29 my arse!!

    Don't worry, you're a 40 something watching tv for 20 year olds, and I'm one (clinging on) watching TV for pensioners.

    Enough about the football. Normal service resumes at my abode. Still smashing the ratings for ITV2, and the DRAMA on the show last night was unbearable.

    Am I still the only one watching?

    @Halli ?

    I am loving it REET

    The recent 'most dramatic recoupling' ever was just that - edge of your seat stuff

    Megan is soo giving me nasty nick vibes, perfect villan so far.

    My faves are of course Dani and Jack.

    I am liking the new Jack who is with Laura to look at

    It was already vacuous viewing for the dregs of the generation but there seems to me to be a nastier edge to the production this year. I usually enjoy scoffing at it stoned but its making me feel uncomfortable at the minute.

    I flicked into this one night and I saw the female contestants in bikinis trying to rip a watermelon open by straddling it between their legs and bouncing on it in the cowboy position giggling for the camera. I don't think I'm quite the demographic for this.

    Megan is fucking VILE.

    Josh is cut from the same cloth as Wes, entitled SHIT, and hopefully the same downfall awaits him.

    Laura is an icon.

    Megan is indeed an absolute whore. I am glad that she jumped ship and showed no loyalty to fuckboy Wes. I am hoping Josh gets fucked over soon too. Surely they can not let him get away with the way he has treated Georgia? The way he was rolling his eyes last night when he was speaking to a Georgia made me way more angry than it should have.

    I must say that this series is EVERYTHING, when I didn’t think they could top last series.

    There was a really shit boring episode the other week when they were just all hugging in the pool but since then it's been CAPTIVATING :D

    Megan is decent looking I SUPPOSE but has nothing whatsoever else to offer. She's not exactly a barrel of laughs. Disappointed in New Alex.

    Megan is terribly dull, and so well suited to Dr Alex personality wise it is UNREAL. She is very pretty, but I have met more girls like her than I have consumed hot dinners. The slightest bit of attention and the knickers are off. Have a bit of fucking decorum.

    Laura is lovely. She handled the whole Wes situation very well.

    Is it just me that would be a bit weirded out if my ‘boyfriend’ had a poster of my actor dad on his bedroom wall? Makes me wonder how sincere Jack actually is now.

    I love Dani. So I hope I am wrong, as they do make a lovely couple.

    I spent last summer listening to the girls in work talk about it rolling my eyes and grumbling about it being heteronormative

    This year, partly because there's no BB and partly because I just didn't want to feel left out of the chat (the sole reason I watch Game of Thrones), I just GAVE IN

    OMG Dr Alex is such a gimp. I think he was cast as the male Camilla, but he is stupidly out of place on this.

    Dr. Alex is Mr. Slave’s cousin.

    I felt a bit :( at the glimpse I saw of him tonight saying he’s close to his family - they’ve all DISOWNED him for going on Love Island. I’m not even allowed to watch it for fear that we might be seen to going against the grain and supporting him.

    His mum and dad have disowned him for going in to Love Island? That seems a bit harsh. Although I can kind of see why. This show is NOT for him.
