What Will BB8 Bring - Fun, Fights Or Fornication?

With the next series of Big Brother starting in less than a week, we take a look at what the show's producers might have in-store for us in terms of the characters taking part.

Tabloid rumours suggest that the general theme for Big Brother this year is one of raunchiness and overt flirting. However, that's bound to make many fans roll their eyes and groan loudly; mainly because they don't want to see any housemates 'getting it on' quite frankly.

Remember, fans have already been privy to the 'PJ BJ' incident during BB3, witnessed blatant sexual activity during Teen Big Brother and, as if we could forget, cringed at Michelle Bass' nympho-like behaviour when she lured hapless Stu Wilson under the table for some, er, under-the-table action!

Don't fret though, because an inside source has hinted to BBO that they're very much aiming for a 'fun' theme this time around, combining the best aspects of all seven series so far.

That makes us think of Brian Dowling's camp-but-funny antics during BB2 and the engaging Paul-and-Helen romance during the same series. The Jade/ Kate/ Jonny drinking games from BB3 were also a big hit with fans.

And there's been a number of unintentionally-comical characters in the past too, including the ridiculous 'Jungle Cats' Jason Cowan/ Victor Ebuwa double-act from BB5, moaning model Alex "I think it's DISGUSTING!" Sibley from BB3, and the OTT pretend-Gangsta Rapper 'Science' from BB6.

So, hopefully the contestant group this year will provide a good combination of fun, flirting and drunken frolics, with a bit of nutty behaviour or eccentricity thrown-in for good measure... oh, and the odd barnie now-and-again (so long as it's not racially motivated. Ahem).

On that note, in light of January's massive race row, C4 bosses have recently rejected a number of candidates put forward by BB production company Endemol on the grounds that they could turn-out to be too controversial.

However, the show undoubtedly needs its fair share of wacky, outspoken or obnoxious characters, just to make it interesting and stir things up a bit.

Anyway, getting back to the original topic, previous Polls in the run-up to a series starting have asked fans what they want to see during Big Brother, with the options usually something along the lines of: i. Fun & Drunken Antics, ii. Romance & Nookie, iii. Bitching & Arguments.

Now, no-one wants to see a re-run of January's horrible events, but without exception, the latter option has always received the most votes in our Polls. By far. And the first option is usually next on the fans' list of wants.

Let's just hope that in their efforts to avoid any confrontation, Channel 4 don't dumb down Big Brother 8 too much and turn it a 3-month-long episode of The Waltons!
