Voting Suspended For Now...
If you're thinking about voting for your least favourite
celebs to go at Friday night's 4th and 5th Evictions, don't!
Well, not yet anyway.
For, as at 3.30pm this afternoon, Channel 4 have suspended
the voting due to an error whereby the titles at the end of
Wednesday night's show incorrectly detailed Shilpa's numbers
as being 'Vote To Save'.
As we know, it's 'Vote To Evict' this week for all housemates,
and here at BBO we don't think that many fans would have taken
the onscreen info onboard; it's only flashed up for a short
period of time any way.
After all, we've had over 10 series of BB so far, so surely
fans know how it works by now? The top bods wouldn't make
it vote to evict some housemates and vote to save
others at the same Eviction.
Anyway, even though the voiceover gave the correct information,
Channel 4/ Endemol have nevertheless consulted with their
adjudicators and decided to cancel all votes registered so
They will re-open the lines after tonight's (Thursday) highlights
show. In the meantime, however, it looks like you can still
call the voting numbers so please don't be tempted to do that,
or you'll just be wasting your money. Your vote will NOT count.
Programme-makers Endemol have issued this statement, "This
was a genuine mistake which was due to human error. We apologise
to viewers and feel the best way to rectify it is to cancel
the vote so far and re-open the voting again this evening,
at the end of tonight's show".
The majority of fans were probably planning to vote on Friday,
so in our view this blip shouldn't significantly affect the
overall outcome. Looking into our crystal ball, it will be
Jo (the most hated nominee) leaving first as the 4th Evictee,
and then the slightly more popular Cleo following close behind
as Evictee No.5.
Fans who've already voted can apparently claim their 50p
back, but it's probably way too much hassle and Channel 4
haven't told us how. If we get more information, we'll add
it to the relevant thread in our Discussion
Forum. All unclaimed monies will be donated to charity.
So, to re-iterate, don't text or phone to register your vote
until you're told that the voting lines have been re-opened
again. This will definitely have occurred by Friday morning.
We know what you're thinking... 'Have the real people gone
on holiday and left the Muppets running Endemol or something?'
We're saying nothing!
