Celebrity Big Brother Can't Post or

Don't usually watch this sort of thing, but I have seen snippets of it, why is it called Celebrity ?

I've heard of Vinnie Jones and Stephanie Beacham. I let them have Celebrity status.

I have just about heard of Dane Bowers he was a singer in Steps, S Club 7, Girls Aloud or something like that, and Ivana was married to Donald Trump and it appears was a skier in the Olympics

The rest are just unknown to me Heidi (ran a brothel), Jonas (singer ?), Stephen (actor / bible type person) Alex (Jordan's boyfriend and cage fighter - at the same time ?), Lady Sovereign (bi-sexual yuf), Katia (Ronnie Woods ex girlfriend, she's about 16 ?), Sisqo (USA singer ?), Nicola (ex page three girl, not really Sam Fox !). I've only got these facts from looking on the web.

A TV show that appears to make Vinnie Jones look normal of the 12 people is not really educational, though Dane Bowers appears almost normal but boring. The rest appear to live on other planets, and that Lady Sov !.

The web did tell me Stephanie appeared naked along side Marlon Brando in a film and has she was recently Ken Barlows bit on the side in Coronation Street ?.

No, some of them weren't exactly A list. That Katia, who is a model from Kazakhstan and stepped out with Ronnie Wood for a bit, doesn't even have a page on Wikipedia. Since Old Bradwell United FC do have one, we must take it that they are better known to the general public than is Miss Ivanova!

And yes, Stephanie Beacham was indeed in Coronation Street for a couple of months. But Ken decided not to leave Deirdre and elope with her, so she went sadly off on her own. They do get some quite major actors in for brief parts on Corrie - Ian McKellen a couple of years back, Nigel Havers recently, and so on. (Although actually, Sue Nicholls who plays Audrey has known Nigel Havers since they were kids - both of their fathers were Conservative MPs.)

Do all people from Kazakhstan speak English that well !. It's a sort of a step 5 to 7 Hellenic / SML Celebrity list with a couple of Conference / League Two names thrown in. A bit like a modern day county senior cup.

Am I the only person in the world never to have watched 'Big Brother'?

As for Vinnie JonesCrazy, I'd hardly call him a celebrity. I heard (on very good authority) how former Crystal Palace keeper John Budgie Burridge challenged Jones to a weight lifting competition and you've never seen anybody disappear so fastSly!

Still there's hope for us all, Mr Jones and the Spice Girls prove that you don't need talent to succeed!

Re: [UKPunk] Celebrity Big Brother [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I never watched the celebrity version, but I attempted to have a look at the first series of BB and truly got bored to death. What's even more dire is all the Little Brother and people talking about it on shows and having opinions on what people should and shouldn't be doing. WHO CARES?
As for the contestants, I've hardly heard of any of them but was told last night by the fiance that apparently Lady Sovereign is a rapper of some sort (she had one of her songs on in the background). Not impressed however!

I don't mind the women at work prattling on about it, expecting nothing more. I do object however to discussion of such mind-numbing crassness being inserted into news bulletins as if we all have to be kept informed of who's in/out/shaking it all about just in case we'd managed to avoid the programmes themselves.

And the same goes for strictly come dancing and all the other mind numbing, spirit crushing, [email protected] programmes on TV these days. Quite frankly I couldn't care less who's in or out. I'm not interested.

Don't even get me started on the millions who sit and watch blokes cooking and abusing anyone within earshot. Then there's hours of rubbish where (mainly) women watch two old stroppy birds castigate Mrs Wannabe-on-telly-at-any-costs for having a dirty house while the dirt and dust piles up around them. Get yer pinnies on FFS.

You've mentioned the 'r' word.
How dare they call it reality TV. It's not real! It's more contrived than anything.
The producers and psychologists have a meeting and decide to get a Rastafarian, a lesbian, a gay fella of mixed race, an upper class twit, a radical Christian, a prostitute, an alcoholic, a drug addict, a tourette's sufferer and a right-on vegan and put them all in a room together for ten weeks to see how they react.
Just like in real life.

Or maybe it's just that I live in a boring town. Perhaps in some parts of London this is the reality!

Not just ITV, Andy. I think the standard of programming on all stations is at an all time low. Even news programmes these days seem to place more importance on the look of the newsreaders than the content and impartiality of the news being broadcast.

"Even news programmes these days seem to place more importance on the look of the newsreaders than the content and impartiality of the news being broadcast."

Do you also think there are "hidden messages" in the news read by Sophie Rayworth ?.

Does Kate Silverton really need those glasses or is it for effect ?.

Is Bill Turnbull really mad.

I'm a BBC2 (all versions) & BBC4 (and the odd C4 programme - Time Team, River Cottage) plus Radio 4 & Radio 7 person, repeats of the Navy Lark though 50 years old are still funnier than any comedy that has ever been on BBC3. Dads Army is still one of most viewed programmes on BBC2 despite every episode having been repeated 20 times.

Though I have Sky most "sections" are lost on me and I usually up in the documentries.

I actually watch S4C more than ITV and C5 put together

Why is your Welsh in such a big font?!!!

I'm don't see much S4C, but to answer your question I'm sure most of us on here would most enjoy the football. From my point of view anything involving Elin Fflur is well worth viewing too!
