Big Brother Panto: E4 9pm / T4 10.50am

A few things to note (December 2004)

BR

Ten ex-Big Brother housemates have moved into the Big Brother Lodge to create their own version of Cinderella, to be broadcast on E4 in the New Year.

They are Nick and Mel from BB1, Narinder from BB2, Spencer, Tim and Jade from BB3, Anouska from BB4 and Marco, Kitten and Victor from BB5.

Quite a few things to note:
Firstly, some effort has been put into the titles. I expect some snow effects and a few sleigh bells, but they've actually reworked the whole theme Christmas style and created very panto style titles for it.

Secondly, no Marcus Bentley. The narrator is Andy Price, and it's done in a fairy story telling way.

Thirdly, it's in widescreen.

And also it's not filmed at the BB house in Elstree, but in the Big Brother Lodge "three doors down" from Santa in the North Pole (a.k.a. Bristol!).

Or it's just a group of ex-big brother housemates, who are desperate for some publicity and to get some money from the media.

*yawn*
That's one programme I don't intend to watch.

Ditto. I'm absolutely fed up of them milking the Big Brother brand, same with ITV and I'm a celeb. It just goes on and on!

I'm not suprised Jade Goody is doing it, she loves to stick her nose in whenever there's a chance for publicity!

Jade, I think you will find.

Well, it's one for the fans really - and I really enjoyed it. A good mix of former housemates.

Agree about Jade though, she so wants to be the centre of the show.

A couple of queries based on the live streaming - the housemates seem to be split on whether this lodge will also be used for the celebrity version of the show as they wouldn't build a new set for three weeks, while others believe they are there so the main house in Elstree can be prepared for Celeb BB on Jan 6th.

The celebrity line-up rumoured so far is quite disappointing - I've only really heard of Craig Charles. Personally I'd have rather they merged the two spin-off shows and done a Big Brother All Stars featuring previous housemates (the 10 in BB panto is a good selection!) being voted out in the usual Big Brother way.

She is not that stupid though, she knows how to play the media.

I think it would be more interesting if they had a mixture of celebrities and complete unknowns - it would be good to see how they react to living together. Ahh, there's an idea for next summer's series -

A couple of weeks in to the show, put a "celeb" in the house, but give them a different name and get them to pretend that they're not who they really are. The housemates will suspect at first, but then accept that its just someone who looks like them. A couple of weeks later, reveal in the diary room to one of the housemates who it really is, and make them keep it a secret from everyone else (or else...). Gradually reveal the secret to the others, but make them all think that they're the only one who knows...Get the celebrity to start acting more and more like their real selves..maybe slipping a few hints. Sit back and see what happens next!

Isn't that what we've currently got, a few people we recognise, and the rest are now just complete unkowns.

The parts are cast:

Marco: Fairy Godmother
Victor: Buttons
Mel: Prince Charming
Kitten: Dandini
Spencer and Tim: Ugly Sisters
Narinder: Baroness Hardup
Nick: Baron Hardup

Either Jade or Anouska will play Cinderella, while Kitten - who annoyingly seems fine when she's not throwing a wobbler - has thrown a big fit over not landing the role of Prince Charming and threatened to quit.
