Big Brother is dead, the ratings are hugely down and it needs saving. Another series of Celebrity Big Brother has been and gone, and even Channel 5 can’t deny it any longer. In this post I’ll outline how to save Big Brother before it’s too late.
When Channel 5 and Endemol announced that they were bringing back Big Brother for its twelfth series I was ecstatic. The show on Channel 4 was brilliant, it broke down social barriers, it gave limitless hours of entertainment in the form of real drama, comedy and romance, and it was simply event TV that I personally thought was easily the best thing on UK TV, no matter what the general public opinion on the show was. It was pure entertainment.
The Daily Star became the official news outlet for Big Brother, and why not? Fair enough they print a load of lies, but the paper is owned by Richard Desmond, who also owns Channel 5, OK! and the Daily Express. Therefore I thought anything printed about Big Brother would likely be true, why would they lie about this?
