Today I’m going to centre on the family and friendship relationships from this year’s Big Brother …

 

Hannah & Deborah

Hannah’s and Deborah’s relationship has been wonderful to watch. They are both lovely girls and have a wonderful close bond as sisters. They have each others back at all times and have really helped each other through the experience. Been close to my sister it has has been lovely to watch. And they are so fun together too. Hope they make the final together.

 

Charlotte & Mandy

Charlotte and Mandy have a lovely mother/daughter relationship which has been lovely to watch as both me and my sister have always been close to our mum and our late father. They looked out for each other and Charlotte was so sad when Mandy was evicted. Mandy had her back too when she came back in and hold her what Chanelle had been saying behind her back.

 

Raph & Chanelle

Raph and Chanelle’s friendship was so lovely to watch. They built up a close friendship from day 1 and were bed buddies who always had each other’s back. He was so sad when she was evicted and she was so sad outside in her interview with Emma when she seen him crying. A lovely, genuine friendship.

 

Kieran & Tom

Kieran and Tom have had a wonderful bromance in there. They have always got on and Kieran’s been like a big brother to Tom helping him through the experience. The two nicer ones of the Lotan/Joe/Kieran/Tom team.

 

Charlotte & Andrew

A lovely friendship with Charlotte and Andrew developed after he entered the house with the second chance housemates and when it came to saving another housemate they saved each other.

 

Sue & Simone

Simone went through a lot in that house. I was disgusted by the piss in the cup comment and the bottles in Kieran’s bed but after that she was put through a lot by a lot of other housemates especially Chanelle and Isabelle which wasn’t nice to watch. I liked that Sue always had her back throughout.

We now have our final 6 after losing the lovely Charlotte Keys in the most recent eviction. Today I’m going to discuss a good point about each of our last 6 and second chance housemate and honorary finalist Andrew …

 

Andrew

Andrew is a team player. He definitely took one for the team with the waxing (even though the £3,000 ended up been his, he didn’t know that at the time) and he always does everyone’s hairs which is very thoughtful.

 

Deborah & Hannah

I’m putting the sisters together because the good point about them both that I’m going to be discussing is their relationship. It really warms my heart because I’m very close to my sister too. They have protected each other throughout the show. Deborah even got a warning while defending her sister and afterwards when Deborah was embarrassed and wanted to leave Hannah talked her out of it. They have been there for each other through thick and thin in there and it has been lovely to watch.

 

Isabelle

Isabelle did a great thing exposing Lotan’s true colours and it was a very brave thing to do considering he was so high in the betting at the time she went into the house. She handled herself wonderfully and with dignity throughout the situation. Some people have said that she went too far with her comment about Lotan not been a role model for his son but really what other option had she? He was ridiculing her constantly and she had to say something to hit back at him.

 

Kieran

I think Kieran has helped Tom a lot in the house. He’s had his back all through it and helped him like a big brother.

 

Raph

When Arthur was been isolated and bullied Raph always stood with him. Having been bullied myself I liked that he didn’t stand by and join in all that. It was very brave too because so many people to protect themselves from been targeted often do join in and I respected him for not doing so.

 

Tom

Tom has definitely come on a journey throughout. Since Joe and Lotan left the kind side of Tom has more came out and he has got on well with most people. He has eventually won me around.

Today I am going to discuss love in this year’s Big Brother house.

 

 

Kieran & Deborah

I would love this to work out! They are so cute and comfortable together. If I was in the house I’d be like Raph trying to get them together. I just think they don’t want to get together on telly but I think this could be a strong match after the show ends.

 

Ellie & Sam

Oh my god, well this relationship was draining to watch! If they like each other good luck to them but as a viewer it was a very cringeworthy romance to watch but not as cringeworthy admittedly as Ellie’s unrequited love story with Lotan. Sam seems a nice guy so I think I’d prefer him for Ellie than Lotan.

 

Imran & Sukhvinder

Married couple Imran and Sukhvinder entered the house as separate housemates but when Imran was evicted Sukhvinder left with him. Not going to lie. I thought that was so romantic. As expeccted a very close couple who had their ups and downs in the house like any couple so long together.

 

Raph & Andrew 

Well this never really took off but Andrew was definitely interested. However in the last episode Raph called him the fakest in the house in the diary room so yeah it isn’t going to go anywhere.

 

 

In Other Circumstances …

 

Raph & Tom

Well we know Raph has a crush on Tom but in other circumstances where if Tom was into lads or made an exception for Raph and didn’t have a girlfriend I think they would make a nice couple. I’ve thought that for a few weeks.

 

Sam & Isabelle

I think Isabelle does fancy Sam and if he wasn’t with Ellie maybe something would have happened in those circumstances. However I think Sam likes Ellie and I don’t think Ellie has anything to worry about even if she might think she does.

 

 

 

Big Brother Blog 1!

 

 

We have entered the final week of Big Brother and each night I’m going to do a blog about Big Brother. Tonight I’m going to speak about five talking points from the show so let’s get going! 🙂

 

 

Isabelle’s “Selflessness”

I think Isabelle is a nice girl and I loved how she got Lotan’s true colours to show. However I don’t buy into this whole “selfless” thing. It’s rather cringeworthy. She’s a nice girl on a reality TV show, not a selfless saint. I think she’s very intelligent and very savvy and has played the game beautifully. I admire her as a great gameplayer because it is a gameshow. But I don’t buy the whole “selfless” tag. I would like to be proved wrong though and think it would be a great task if BB asked her to sacrifice her place in the final for another housemate (obviously not get rid of her from the show, just as a test) to see if she’d do it. It would be great TV! 🙂

 

 

Hannah, Andrew & Faith

I think both Hannah and Andrew were as bad as each other in the argument they had. But I think Hannah did take it too far when she maintained that Andrew was discriminating against her faith after he said “God-worthy”. He clearly meant hypocritical and as a former Catholic I knew exactly what he meant by his comment straightaway. I think while I believe in no discrimination against anybody for their faith or lack of faith that it would be quite sad if we ended up going backwards in time to a time when to mention God’s name in an argument was a cardinal sin.

 

 

Raph & “Tainted Money”

I love Raph and he is my winner. However the whole tainted money moment in the diary room was cringeworthy to watch. I did feel he was envious that Andrew got the money and the place in the final and also wanted to look good on TV so this wasn’t a good moment for Raph. But I think he’s a nice guy and I’m still rooting for him to win.

 

 

Andrew Nominating Hannah For Eviction

Now this was very cringeworthy to watch. Both of them I think are nice people but Andrew seemed very fake here and was clearly looking for airtime. He loves drama and attention. But it was very obvious that he was putting Hannah up so it was irritating when he milked the moment. I honestly don’t get why he’s bothering looking for the limelight at this stage. He should sit back on that cosy cushion of £33,900. I would!

 

Raph Misses Chanelle 

I was never Chanelle’s biggest fan but this warmed my heart. They have a lovely friendship which I think is very genuine on both sides. Watching him missing her has been sad to watch and it was sad seeing how sad she was during her interview with Emma when she seen him crying.

My Six Favourites In Big Brother!

 

 

The new series of Big Brother is at the halfway point in the UK and already it has been another great season so far. Sadly the very entertaining and lovely Arthur Fulford left the house early on in the series. I loved him. He was a great housemate. Thanks for the memories Arthur!

 

 

So who are my current favourite six in the BB house?

 

 

 

 

Raph Korine

 

BB superfan, nerd and all-round lovely guy, Raph is my winner. He’s very interesting and an excellent housemate. He had Joe spot on and when he called Joe out about him calling him a prick it was a great moment. Everytime he had a problem with Joe he has called him out in that wonderful, diplomatic way of his and it’s great viewing. He was also a great friend to Arthur which was lovely. His friendships with Chanelle, Andrew and Isabelle are also lovely and very entertaining to watch. Super intelligent and down-earth, I really hope he wins. He reminds me of my late father: gentle, kind, caring and always there for people and also very strong and not scared to confront people when they annoy him. A complete gentleman and that’s only reinforced even more by Lotan (anything but a gentleman) slagging him off to get 15 more minutes of fame.

 

 

Andrew Cruickshanks

Andrew is my favourite of the second chance housemates. It’s nice to see a Celt finally been a good housemate in this series. He seems lovely and when he took Joe on in the garden, I loved him. Good on you Andrew! His friendship with Raph is lovely to watch although I feel sorry for the two of them with the unrequitted love situation. I hope Andrew wins the £15,000.

 

 

Sue Evans

 

Oh Hurricane Sue. I love her. She’s my second favourite of the second chance housemates. Her observations are excellent and she’s not scared to state how she feels about the other housemates which is wonderful. She seems very direct but also very nice. When the public had a choice to put in either Andrew or Sue on launch night, why on earth did they pick Tom? Wonders never cease.

 

Isabelle Warburton

Isabelle is great. She seems a really cool girl. The way she handled the situation with Lotan was brilliant. She’s always stood her ground in the house and is always up for a laugh. She’s also very calm. The way she stayed calm in the situation with Lotan was very admirable. I know I probably wouldn’t have been that calm! Her friendships with Chanelle, Raph and Andrew are lovely to watch too.

 

 

Deborah Agboola

In the earlier shows of the series, Deboragh, and her sister Hannah, weren’t been shown much and thus I hadn’t really an opinion on either of them either way. But when they came into it, they really did come into it and I liked them both very much. When Deboragh took on Rebecca after Hannah’s argument with Lotan I totally agreed with her. She and Hannah’s loyalty to each other is lovely to watch. They really look out for each other and because I’m very close to my sister too it warms my heart. Deboragh also stood up for her sister on fight night and received a warning. But look she has nothing to be ashamed about. What other way would you react in defending your sister? One thing I am getting tired of is the word “aggressive” been used in connection with Deboragh and Hannah. I personally don’t find them to be. But what really annoys me about the use of that word about Hannah and Deboragh is that the same people who say that about the girls when they get mad don’t say “aggessive” about white housemates when they get mad. In other words, do it both ways or neither way. We’ve gone beyond those ignorant old stereotypes or so I thought. I also love watching Deboragh’s friendship with Raph and of course her possible relationship with Kieran. I think they both like each other and they would be very cute and suited together. Come on Debran!

 

 

Hannah Agboola

When Hannah called Lotan out in the argument it was a great moment. Prior to that Sukvinder had told her that Kayleigh had been negative about Deboragh and she handled her emotions well which must have been bubbling up angrily inside. When it’s your sister it’s very hard to keep your emotions back if someone says something negative about them. Both she and Deboragh seem like great girls who are very intelligent and who won’t back down when they know they are in the right. Hannah is a slight bit of a drama queen but I kind of enjoy her been like that. I agree completely with her on the Lotan mouse situation though. He wasn’t a pal of hers and due to that I think it’s obvious that his motivation wasn’t banter. The thing with Ellie spray-tanned like a smurf, I didn’t really believe her but I think she’s a great housemate and I love her relationship with her sister. When Deboragh was going to leave and she stopped her and calmed her down it was a lovely moment. Her friendships with the gang in thorn cottage are also lovely.

eurovision-2017-kyiv-logo

 

 

So the Eurovision has once again graced our screens for 2017. We ‘ve already been treated to the two semi-finals where 20 acts made it through to the Grand Final tonight! And there was even a marriage proposal for Macedonia’s entrant, Jana Burceska from her boyfriend Alexander.

 

 

Watch out for these six entrants at tonight’s final:

 

Portugal

 

eurovision-2017-semi-final-1-portugal-600x399

 

Potugal’s entry Amar Pelos Dois sung by Salvador Sobral and written by his sister Luisa Sobral is a soaring jazz-style ballad. Think male Bessie Smith or Billie Holiday. It had a wonderful reception at the first semi-final and is the current favourite with the bookies to claim Eurovision glory. Stunning, understated and very polished.

 

 

Bulgaria

Bulgaria’s entry this year is Beautiful Mess sung by Kristian Kostov. A beautiful ballad with wonderful, modern, understated monochrome staging. Quite R ‘n’ B staging. Beautiful Mess is simply beautiful. Written by Sebastian Arman, Borislav Milanov, Joacim Petsson, Alexander V. Bley, Johan Alkanaes.

 

 

Cyprus

hovig-to-represent-cyprust-at-eurovision-2017-705x317

Cyprus’ entry is Gravity sung by Hovig, who has previously been involved in writing Euphoria for Loreen. Gravity is catchy, a real earworm. I adore the staging from start to finish. It’s incrediby well put together. Written by Thomas G: Son.

 

 

The United Kingdom

Lucie Jones’ Never Give Up On You written by Eurovision winner Emmelie de Forest is the UK’s best chance in a while in the contest. A soaring ballad, beautiful staging and could definitely get top 10 or even top 5.

 

Australia

 

Austra

lia’s entry Don’t Come Easy sung by Australia’s X Factor winner Isaiah Firebrace is a strong ballad sung with amazing power and control. A great chance of making top 10. Written by DNA (David Musumeci and Anthony Egizii) and Michael Angelo.

 

Sweden

nintchdbpict0003090344981

Sweden’s Entry I can’t go on sung by Robin Bengtsson is catchy, wonderfully staged from start to finish and the styling is great. Written by David Krouger, Hamed “K-Ono” Pirouzpanah and Robin Stjernberg.

My Opinion of The I’m A Celeb Finalists!


Well we have reached the final three in this year’s I’m A Celeb and it’s been a very lovely camp this year for the most part which was nice. So what is my take on the finalists. Read on to find out …

 

Adam Thomas

Adam has done great. He’s the record holder for the trials after the celebrity cyclone challenge yesterday so well done to Adam on that. He’s definitely done his bit in the show which is admirable. Seems a nice guy.

Joel Dommett

I love Joel. I love his nerdy sense of humour and I say that as a fellow nerd. He seems to be just an all-round nice down-to-earth guy and him and Martin have made this series for me. I was for them both now I’m defo team Joel. It’s going to be difficult for him to win been the third favourite but he’s my winner. Joel for King of the jungle! 🙂

Scarlett Moffatt

Scarlett seems a nice girl and watching her friendships with the other girls in camp was nice to see. Women get a lot of stick for not getting on with each other and as a woman it was nice to see the myth that all women don’t get on with each other and are always bitchy with each other been shown up. Really lovely.
