Is it just me or is BB8 getting duller and duller now that the prial of Queens, parly Chanelle, gobby Charley and demure Shannessa, have all gone. Last night two more women were evicted from the house but it was hardly a shock and no complaints here.
So the ranter’s left the house at last; no more tears from the wailing Channelle. Thank Christ. But we did get lots of tears from virtually everyone else in the house tonight. It took me back to those dark days of the sad boys in Any Dream Will Do. Shudder. As a double bonus we also saw the back of Ziggy who nobly fell on his sword to volunteer, Spartacus like, for temporary banishment to the half-way house. Amusingly, and unlike in Spartacus, all his housemates voted to ditch him rather than save him. Great fun, then of course more tears. This of course was triggered by the arrival of the 2 new housemates – David (yep I forecast that) and Kara Louise who I thought would attract some votes but she beat my favourite Shanessa hands down. Ah well Shanny back to the porn and obscurity. Except she and Aileen Wournos (who was very upset and not a little shocked not to get through) and weirdo Jonty (who had his backers incredibly) still remain in the half way house along with Ziggy now. Is it just me or are you just a little bemused too? We now have the Big House and Little House with the fairy. Sorry Jonty.
OMG first of all we lose Charley from the BB house. She was the queen b and most interesting character but also it seems the most reviled – nearly 90% of the viewers voted for her in a head to head vote-off. Surely the biggest landslide in BB history. Now she’ll just go off and make several millions creating and exploiting brand Charley. She’ll undoubtedly get her wish to become one of those celebrity personalities she so covets. But with all that anger burning within her it’ll all end in tears a la Jade Goody I sense. Even so, is it just me or did the lights go out a bit on the programme with her departure?
I was thinking about that great film ‘Rita, Sue and Bob Too’ about life up north for a blerk who likes his ladies and the thought occurs that they could do the re-make with Sven and those lovely northern lassies from BB, Charley and Chanelle. I mean it’s got a ring of realism behind it; Sven will almost certainly not move house up north and you can bet your life the sophisticated Nancy will be preferring Mayfair to Deansgate. So Sven will be holed up in the Lowry hotel with lots of time on his hands and in need of some comforting…..
So tonight we have the vote off between Welsh Laura and Yorkshire’s Chanelle. I’m not fussed which one goes; they’re both unlikeable. One self-deluded and miserable; the other needy, clingy and self-deluded. But what I will miss will be the accents. Is it just me or are the south wales and yorks accents just about the worst going and strangely compelling?
Is it just me or is this Big Brother just jam packed full of unlikable characters? I may be wrong (but doubt it) but Billi’s got to be on the way out tonight. With a name spelt like that he deserves it. I’m not a big fan of the BB series usually – it long ago stopped being an interesting social experiment and has just become a vehicle for wannabee 5 minutes of famers and this bunch are particularly unattractive. I watched the last Celebrity BB because anything with 2.5 members of the Goody family in it, had to be a train crash waiting to happen. And did it. But I was determined not to watch this series, only I’ve been strangely drawn to it. I think it’s Charley…..
