    Much to my families dismay I am an avid viewer! At 56 years young I love it. I was a massive Big Brother fan from day one but have sacked it off in recent years.

    Who are you liking? I like Dani & Jack and was a fan of Alex until last night - he went down in my estimation slightly lol

    I like Laura. What has happened with big brother? Have they stopped doing it altogether?

    I like Laura too but find her a bit whiney sometimes - as to Big Brother I'm not sure though I've seen a couple of "flashes" of the eye on tv and facebook the last couple of days - I watch the celebrity one and I think they are doing that first. I do know that the license to show it ends this year so who knows

    Yes I'm a sad old fart who loves "reality" tv - we all have one embarrassing guilty pleasure - least it's low carb :hilarious: :) lol

    Reality TV is largely ghastly but caters to the selfie society we have become. I keep a tv mostly because I really love sport and documentaries especially wildlife. I would hate to miss Attenborough stuff.

    Oh good. I have been addicted since the first BIg Brother when it was described as a social experiment. It is not as good now as all people are fame hungry but still watch. I had never watched Love island before but started after wondering why it was such a TV hit.

    I have never done a selfie in my life and only have a mobile phone for emergencies or when on holiday and I cannot see the appeal of Facebook. I like nature documentaries as well

    It is a pretty harmless guilty pleasure. I like trying to spot if there are any genuine people. The older American celebrities on Celebrity BB always look like they wonder what the hell their agent has got them into
