Doesn't look like it! grin

There goes my social life for the next 3 months!!! grin

ItStillLooksLikeRainDear Sat 31-May-14 22:08:29

Was beginning to think I was the only one!

I was just thinking today, that I hadnt heard anything about it.
Cant decide whether to be excited or not.
Depends how it pans out I guess.
Sometimes they manipulate it too much for my taste.
And sometimes, I am not keen on who they pick as contestants.
So I will have to wait and see.

Is it real people or celebs?
I usually get bored of the real people. Can't even render who won last year.

Kaluki Sat 31-May-14 22:13:38

Every year I say I'm not bothering this year and I never like them when they go in but by week 2 I'm totally hooked!!!

hashtagwhatever Sat 31-May-14 22:14:34

Me too. Usually it will take me a few days to get into it. At first I end up thinking meh these people are no good at first. I think at first everyone talks over each other and its a bit off putting definitely by the next week I will have my favourites.

Redcoats Sat 31-May-14 22:15:50

Me too kaluki.
I Moan about the wannabes. All the messing about with the rules. It's on for too many weeks. Blah blah blah. Still watch it though.

PacificDogwood Sat 31-May-14 22:22:59

Oh, yawn.

I'm so bored by the whole concept now. I wish they'd let it die tbh.
I cannot bear to watch it now.

Kaluki Sat 31-May-14 23:06:31

It's never any good till they stop acting up for the cameras and trying to be nice then you see what they are really like!!!

LoveBeingInTheSun Sat 31-May-14 23:13:50

Yay better a few weeks in, I always watch the live shows and skip out for a bit

ItStillLooksLikeRainDear Sat 31-May-14 23:14:48

I've vowed never to watch it again a few times but by the time the middle of May arrives I start wondering when it will start.

Then I kid myself that l will just watch the first couple of episodes to see who is on it.

Then it's - might as well see who is first to be evicted.

And so it continues...

Hell yes.

I swore not to watch again when it moved to 5 and they changed it but I can't help myself. I've watched every series. Some I haven't minded missing episodes but the last couple really picked up I thought.

Wish they would calm down in the 'twists' though.

Coumarin Sun 01-Jun-14 02:15:52

Oh god sinister, I'd blocked that out!

Redcoats Sun 01-Jun-14 09:07:15

I prefer the celeb one now, probably because its not on as long.

The only thing I like about c5 is the way they put the names of the HMs on screen for the first few weeks so I know hi they are. The first few weeks when they're all loud and showing off all the time are the worst. Once I get past that I'm hooked.

Kaluki Sun 01-Jun-14 09:52:32

I agree the twists are a but much.
Loved the mole thing last year but I think there should be a mole in there for the whole time - that would really shake them up!

Coumarin Sun 01-Jun-14 12:40:17

That was one of the things that I didn't like Red I don't notice it now.

Yy the mole was good. Wish they'd kept it going for longer. Dan would've self combusted after another couple of weeks.

linkery Sun 01-Jun-14 14:48:03

I did think that the last couple of series have perked up a bit really.

Bellete Sun 01-Jun-14 19:17:22

Ooh I am looking forwardblush.I do think its a lot better than it used to be though.Great distraction for the summerblush.I am slow to admit this in real life thoughblush.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 01-Jun-14 21:22:30

Marks placegrin

Haggisfish3 Sun 01-Jun-14 21:27:27

Me too!

ItStillLooksLikeRainDear Sun 01-Jun-14 21:45:43

grin Bellete yep I'm a bit like that in RL too.

Watch BB?
Who, me? .... I'll put it on if there's nothing else on TV.

if there is anything else on the TV then you can record it DH, or go & watch it elsewhere!!!

I'm a massive BBC fan, can't help myself. I've missed the lovely Emma Willis being off our screens for a while.
