What a surprise......There cant ask to pay less for the celeb shows. That's where the money is made. The normal version well it's meh. Maybe they should just change it to two 4 week blocks instead like the celb version instead of draggin it out.
I agree, I found the house far more interesting in this series when there were just 8 housemates at the start. It's more honest and more intense, they're too used to putting in 16 housemates and creating the same formulaic series each year. It would be better to return to the times when there were fewer housemates - if that means a shorter series or fewer evictions and maybe a few late arrivals - then I think I would enjoy it far more.
I'm probably in the minority, however, praying that it gets renewed! If it doesn't and it gets picked up by someone else we're going to end up with Emma leaving and it becoming the Rylan show (which isn't an awful prospect, but it isn't BB).
