In a summer filled with real world problems – riots, massacre, famine – I've missed the cosy distracting fug of Celebrity Big Brother, back this week on Channel 5, presented by Brian Dowling. Oh, for constant, low-level vexation over largely bugger-all: frittered grocery budgets, nomination-day crocodile tears, characters who confuse "keeping it real" with "being verbose tactless tits", spats over contraband Bourbon Creams and the edifying spectacle of D-list celebs weeping into cans of brand-obscured pilsner, before crawling around on astroturf snatching up old fag butts to build grim last-resort roll ups. I'm livid already. It feels brilliant.

25 year old Scottish actor Samuel Robertson plays Flynn. Dundee-born Sam (represented by Curtis Brown) played Adam Baldwin in Coronation Street, and then went on to play cool art history student Innes Maitland in River City.
