I've never followed any other series of BB - civilian or celeb - as closely as I followed BB2.
The chemistry between Helen and Paul, Paul surviving four evictions before finally going, Bubble and Dean setting world records and Davina being heavily pregnant, among other things. And, of course, Brian winning - I even voted for him with my parents' permission (being 13 at the time).
On a visit to Ireland a few weeks later - just prior to permanently moving there from London - I asked my uncle to drive me through Brian's home village of Rathangan in County Kildare. Sure enough, the "Well Done Brian" banners were still up.
Brian also provided by far the best moment of the Vernon Kay celeb version of Family Fortunes...
Now officially retired from TV Forum. "When the fun stops, stop."
