Tonight's The Night: Big Brother 7 Begins
With interest in Big Brother 7 having grown to fever pitch,
Big Bro fans can now rest at ease, for the new series begins
tonight. Blimey, has it been a year already?
Yep, longstanding host Davina McCall will kick things off
this evening, Thursday the 18th of May 2006, with the live
Launch show starting on Channel 4 at 9pm.
Then, everyone's favourite 'shouty' presenter will finally
put an end to all the speculation about who might
be coming to stay at Elstree's most famous house, and let
us know who the hapless twelve (or more) actually are.
Akin to BB2 and BB4, when she famously wore a 'Big Mutha'
T-shirt, 38-year-old Davina is expecting another baby this
summer. The hyperactive host is due to due to give birth to
her third child soon after the series ends (Friday the 18th
But don't worry, despite carting all the paraphernalia around
just in case, Davina won't be dropping a sprog in the Big
Brother House... 'cos that would just be taking things a bit
too far, wouldn't it?
Well, not for programme makers Endemol, who were happy for
a 27-year-old law student to give birth (not shown live) to
a little girl on the Dutch version of the show last year.
We don't know what's more bizarre, the fact that it ever
happened, or the fact that the Dutch Government limited the
kid's exposure to the cameras due to strict child labour laws.
We've heard of starting 'em young, and we understand that
most youngsters are desperate to get on TV these days, but
Anyway, back to Davina. After she's given birth, she'll be
able to take plenty of time off given that her salary for
presenting the show is allegedly more than the average UK
citizen earns in twenty years. Mind you, who else could do
Okay, so we can't do without the bubbly brunette, but here
at BBO we still say this: Davina, please take-out your earpiece
during the interviews and grill the evictees with all the
awkward questions that fans want answering.
On that note, you may be pleased to hear that Russell Brand
is back with his 'Big Brother's Big Mouth' forum show. In
contrast to Davina, the eccentric and irreverent host/ comedian
has a reputation for saying exactly what he thinks and often
sails pretty close to the wind.
The fast-paced show, which goes out four nights a week on
digital channel e4, features all manner of guests who enthusiastically
discuss the happenings of Big Brother with an audience, often
with anarchic results.
Highly recommended, even if the Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen coiffed
presenter does take a bit of getting used to!
And finally, you're probably wondering whether hunky dreamboat
Dermot O'Leary will be back this year (well, forget the 'hunky
dreamboat' bit unless you're i. female or ii. gay and male).
Yep, we're pleased to say that the witty short-ar*ed BBLB
host is back onboard. Hooray!
Dermot will once again be talking to the evictees, bringing
us up-to-date news and generally messing about on his 'Big
Brother's Little Brother' fanzine show. However, it'll only
be aired on digital channel e4 this time around, going out
four nights a week.
There will be a BBLB show on Channel 4 each Sunday,
but fans of Dermot without access to digital tv can look forward
to his new C4 show live on Monday nights called 'Big Brother’s
Big Brain'. This is basically a psychological analysis of
all the BB7 goings-on, and replaces the traditional recorded
You'll also be able to watch plenty of live streaming on e4,
the usual Diary Room Uncut shows, the Daily Update shows and
of course, the live evictions on Friday nights.
So, plenty to keep you interested there, and if you're anywhere
near as big a fan of the show as we are here at BBO, prepare
to become BB-brainwashed for the next three months of your
