  1. Good total TV numbers for big brother but I’m sure seven will still be worried about overnights and demos!

    As a loyal fan, even I’m confused.

    Last night it went back to the original challenge and eviction. Which last week they said wasn’t happening. Introduced Tully as HOH, but with no power of veto. Pick a lane and stick with it.

    If it was for the OGs returning, I’d be off already.

    Stop showing us so much “love” story nonsense – we never were told why are Reggie and Dave voted Layla last week (all OGs said they would stick together), this is far more interesting than people falling “in love” after three days of knowing each other (but then again if I was really wishing for something, scrap the strat chat altogether).

    Don’t even get me started on how long these eps are either…

      1. Glad I’m not the only one David!
        If they want HOH and challenges, stick to the US format – a challenge to compete for HOH, all housemates nominate and HOH has power of veto to remove one.

        Three eps a week-
        1- nominations
        2- challenge (do after noms as makes housemates want to win more to remove themselves if nominated)
        3- eviction / power of veto

        Simple (you’d think).
