There are very few house-mates you could term as being famous. Last year it was won by an unknown, Chantelle who has proceeded to unleash a dire show of her own on the unsuspecting public, but at least we have the consolation that it probably won't be long before viewers get sick of her. The other contestant from that series that springs to mind is George Galloway who with the biggest expense bill of all the MPs last year should be serving his voters, not pretending to be a cat in one of the most cringe-worthy moments of TV in recent years.
My major problem with the show (as I can just not watch it) is that it is an excuse for most of the most popular newspapers in Britain to devote pages and pages to these wannabes and has-beens in the place of any real news or indeed anything interesting.
The other thing of course like all so-called 'celebrity' shows is that nobody actually famous or currently successful is going to want to appear on the show and be made to look foolish. Every series the producers 'accidentally' leak names of real celebrities who are supposed to be appearing (but who wouldn't dream of demeaning themselves like this), so that people watch the launch show and go "who the hell is that?" at the entry of half the contestants.
Please cancel this rubbish now and produce some real entertainment. Please?
