I started watching this series because I was intrigued by the combination of Julie Goodyear, Samantha Brick, Julian Clary, Coleen Nolan and Martin Kemp. I didn't know any of the others.
I find Julie Goodyear revolting to watch -she seems to be chewing all the time with her mouth open.
I warmed to Samantha Brick - I think her daft article about how beautiful she is was just a commission to get herself some publicity. And it worked!
It is toe-curling when they are slagging off each other in private and then hugging each other - such hypocrisy.
I couldn't understand why the two men fell for Dannica, who seemed rather less than beautiful to me.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I've watched this one. I don't quite know why, except that human nature and behaviour is fascinating.
I've never watched before, but this combination of people is somehow interesting.

I stopped watching the non-celebrity shows after the first as the entrants were such a bunch of attention-seekers and from bits I saw in the newspapers they got even worse as the years went by. It is far more interesting when you 'know' them and have preconceived ideas about them.

Yes, and I've always known that Julie G is as hard as nails. It has been amusing to see her suck everyone in at first and now they are seeing her as she really is! grin

Although I've never watched BB I watched this one because i like Julie G. However, after half an hour it go so boring I haven't watched any more.

I gave it up after George Galloway's act as Rula Lenska's cat. Couldn't stomach any more of that kind of nonsense!

Ella46 Sat 01-Sep-12 21:04:35

That really was revolting Anno. I don't know what they were thinking! and I don't want to

annodomini Sat 01-Sep-12 21:14:03

So it was, Ella. George is nothing if not an exhibitionist, but even for him that was disgusting. Yuk!

Greatnan Sat 01-Sep-12 21:21:47

It was nearly as bad as his fawning on Saddam!

Ella46 Sun 02-Sep-12 10:38:24

What was JG thinking in last night's programme, all that black stuff round her eyes?!! At least it distracted from the ghastly chewing!

I am glad most of the housemates are beginning to realize that JG is not as sweet as they initially thought, and well done Colleen for sussing her from the start. Aren't men suckers for a simpering , manipulating girl?
Going off the subject a bit, the men on the 'Batchelor' programme also choose totally unsuitable girls for a possible future together. They can't see beyond pouty lips and fake boobs!

Its a bit downmarket for my taste, almost like reading the Sun! grin

Greatnan Sun 02-Sep-12 14:52:43

I wondered who would be the first to make a remark like that!

whenim64 Sun 02-Sep-12 15:02:55

Can't beat a bit of provocation, eh?

Ella46 Sun 02-Sep-12 15:38:52

Good job we don't all share the same tastes, it would be extremely boring on these threads! hmm

Greatnan Sun 02-Sep-12 15:54:04

But we must be careful to avoid seeming patronising.

Grannylin Sun 02-Sep-12 15:56:42

Or getting blandgrin

Ella46 Sun 02-Sep-12 15:56:55

Tell that to LF! grin

Greatnan Sun 02-Sep-12 16:52:52

We must give the girl a break - I think it is only her third post.

glammanana Sun 02-Sep-12 17:04:43

I know that I shouldn't be saying this but I find the programme addictive viewing for some reason,even though I am not a fan of reality TV I find myself thinking every night "I wonder what JG is doing tonight" and turn on to the channel.(sad)

Greatnan Sun 02-Sep-12 17:12:19

There is a horrible fascination in watching JG chewing constantly. And the hair!
I am surprised that Martin Kemp needs to do it at all - he is quite a good actor and the people in Celebrity BB are normally those whose career is just about over, like Julian Clary (I hate his crudity).

annodomini Sun 02-Sep-12 17:43:54

Whatever have I been missing? confused

Greatnan Sun 02-Sep-12 17:55:25

Not much, I just have a look for a few minutes each night to see who is being two-faced. (Mind you, if Julie Goodyear had two faces she wouldn't be using that one - boom boom!)

Ella46 Sun 02-Sep-12 18:10:11

Ha ha very true Gnan! grin

petallus Sun 02-Sep-12 19:16:00

One of the things that I quite liked (at first) about JG was that she didn't seem to mind being seen without any makeup and looking pretty awful.

Thought she was better than those other two vacuous young women, all pouting and being sexy.

But the gum chewing got to me a bit.

I'm going to have a look later tonight to see what JG is up to now. Not good according to this thread.
