Anyone else willing to admit that they are watching? This is the third series that I have followed. I originally thought it would be good to have something to discuss with my GD, but I have become hooked. What do you think of this year's bunch of young people?

Never - but heard a programme about it. It did not encourage me to use up any of my life on it.

Not watching but DGD tells me all about it.

Sadly, it’s my guilty pleasure ! It’s so bizarrely bad and as I have never watched Big Brother, I’m a celebrity, Strictly or any of those I think I’m allowed to watch one hour of uninhibited trash 😁

____never watched it or any sort of those programmes.

Only seen/read reports or news about it and what I gather personally, it doesn't do the youngsters good does it, what with a couple of suicides ? Not exactly educational or uplifting for the morale of younger viewers.

I think it teaches some how NOT to behave but I also think many others will aspire to be like this and think it's a career.
I love watching it but my husband thinks I'm crackers in doing so .

It's my first series. Enjoying it so far, different to the detective series I usually watch. At least there's no gratuitous violence. Well, not so far...
I liked Callum.

We watched part of an episode; I'm afraid we were horrified at the shallowness and the trout pouts, the six-packs and the lack of anything other than hot air between the ears.

Not for us, I'd rather watch the proverbial paint drying.

I’d rather shoot myself in the foot.

Two Granddaughters (cousins) watch it avidly I can’t think of anything worse and would not want to I have seen snippets of adverts for it and it looks totally awful and all so superficial What a stupid waste of time and that’s the level of programme we have to pay the license for ...bah humbug
