    Although John Barnes is known, is entertaining and sensible. The black woman from America is lovely, no idea who she is.

    Ann Widdecombe is fantastic, a breath of fresh air, an elder statesperson with a vast array of knowledge and sense. I think that completes the list of those I know.

    I find myself fast forwarding when that bloke from the North East, who wants to be a woman, starts on his self-pity tirades. However he has just shown his true colours by declaring, I paraphrase, "people have done very well in the house by creating an atmosphere, some controversy". Is it a North East thing?

    I'm watching this as I love it - it's my guilty pleasure.


    Each year the 'celebrity' line up gets worse. Lately it's just been full of reality stars but it's gone even more into decline by involving vloggers as 'celebrities'.


    So far I'm loving ShaneJ/Courtney and Ann Widdecombe. I don't understand why people ask Ann directly for her opinion on things only to then get upset when she gives it!

    Shane/Courtney to win, what an absolutely lovely human being.
    really enjoying this season better than the last which lost my interest.
    India out, plays the victim card too much and has a vile attitude.

    There is always some who barely qualify as a Celebrity but there just isnt enough actual celebrities in this series. The black woman from america is a friend of a kardashian. This is what i mean by barely qualifying. I believe the self pitying person(india) has had the operation to change sex and i thought they were from the north west not north east, perhaps i am wrong.

    India needs to realise that everyones dislike of her is nothing to do with being a transsexual and everything to do with her poor me attitude

    It makes a nice change for everybody to be getting on so well.

    It's just that India who is the 'fly in the ointment'.

    It wasnt an opinion on who i think should stay. It was stating the facts. Vote to save gives unpopular characters a chance to survive and they have done on many occasions. If it were vote to evict she would be gone for sure. The bloke she is up against is not popular enough to get more votes than a big character.
    They obviously changed to vote to save because in the past big characters were getting voted out early which often resulted in a less entertaining series.

    I watched this the other night as people at work were well in to it. The only person I knew was Ann W and that wifey out of one of the soaps, I'm unable to remember her name or which soap.

    I was wrong on my guess to which woman was the transgender as I picked out the blonde woman who I now know is Boris Johnson's sister.

    Unfortunately they did not get enough attention for somebody to want to write an info page about them, such as wikipaedia.

    That said, there must be stark differences in accents up there of which only the locals will be able to differentiate.

    Perhaps I was close but not close enough

    India 'I'm a real woman' Willoughby doesn't do transgenders any great favours. The 'acceptance' she is looking for works both ways and only comes when she recognises that dinosaurs like me will always see her as being born a male. I can't change that.

    Iím from Newcastle but lived in Carlisle for a while. Her accent I would say isnít that distinct- she was I believe based in Newcastle for some time and I can hear the odd trace in her voice, quite feasible that she picked it up while she was there. The Carlisle and Newcastle accent are very different yes.
