    I gave up on the 'civillian' version years n years ago.

    I kept watching the 'Celebrity' version though (in hope that i might actually see one!)


    Will you miss it / them?

    Big Brother was billed as a social experiment on Channel 4 18 years ago, and involved putting ordinary people in a house over a series of weeks with no contact to the outside world.

    Davina McCall presented the first incarnation of the show, stepping down in 2010 when it moved to Channel 5.

    It was then hosted by former winner Brian Dowling before Emma Willis took over in 2013 and been narrated by Marcus Bentley for the whole 18 years the show has been on air.

    Well, the Channel 5 bosses will now be having to change their pants because now they will have to something called work to fill in the empty timeslots caused by BB being cancelled.

    Meanwhile, my reaction is like this:

    Always ask yourself one question: What would Gibbs do?

    I had to put mothballs in my wallet - the moths had learned the PINs to my cards...

    I thought 'Big Brother' was out of George Orwell's 1984.
