It’s Day 14 and we’ve now passed the halfway mark of this series of Celebrity Big Brother!
Those who follow me on Twitter will have seen that every now and again I post my personal rankings of the housemates still left in the house. I have done 3 of these rankings since launch and I thought it would be good to pop them in one place, as it’s always interesting to see the differences! Read the rest of this entry
Back in 2013, the National Trust partnered with Big Brother in a publicity stunt of sorts and opened the doors to the Big Brother house to the public for the first time.
I was one of the lucky few to take a spot and fulfilled a bit of a dream by walking in to the very house I’d been watching for, at that point, 12 years! (Of course, series 1 and 2 were filmed in a different location entirely). Read the rest of this entry
My name is Lewis ‘LJAY815’ Griffiths, and I am a Big Brotherholic.
Since the age of 10, I have spent the last 18 years gleefully obsessing over the most exciting and authentic reality TV show that has ever graced our planet. Some would say that’s a bit sad. No.. MOST would say that’s a bit sad… But hey, that’s been me!
During the 2000 to the late naughties era, I felt like I was the only one. Sometimes dropping in to the Digital Spy Big Brother forums to see that there were others out there who analysed the show in every little detail, and lived and breathed the live feed. But it wasn’t until Twitter came in to existence that I really got to see that I wasn’t alone.
There are loads of us! All with wildly different opinions on the housemates and the show itself, and I LOVE it. Read the rest of this entry

Now, I’ll forgive you for forgetting, thanks to Love Island taking over the summer airwaves, but Big Brother 2018 is coming and we have been promised a big overhaul and a return to its social experiment roots to try to save the show from the axe.
Here I’ll take a few of my ideas for a great series to come which I’m convinced will drive up the ratings, along with making an exciting series for viewers to enjoy.
A few months ago I decided to treat myself to a Playstation VR headset for my Playstation 4 system. I had planned to get it a year before, but due to some personal circumstances that just didn’t happen. But I am glad I waited a year because it meant some great titles were added to the roster of games available for it.
Short answer, no I don’t think so.
Long answer, well I’m glad you asked! Big Brother has been a staple on British television for 18 years, however since being axed by Channel 4 in 2010 due to “creative renewal” by the channel, Big Brother has lost its edge, its purpose and subsequently, viewers.
