Karly Ashworth : Big Brother Is Back!

It is officially time for our summer to start ladies and gentlemen… Big Brother 11 is here! I can honestly say I am that excited I could actually wee my pants!

The Big Brother producers have really gone all out this year to make it the best BB ever, especially since the 2009 recession left (my) Big Brother house filled with uncomfortable seating, boxes and a tiny garden. That place seem so inferior now looking at that these new housemates will be getting to hang around in for the summer. With a swish open plan living area, HUGE garden and gorgeous décor this really is going to be just AMAZING!

Around 80 housemates are sat around, twiddling their thumbs as they nervously await their fate on tonight’s Big Brother Launch show, and I can tell you know, that waiting around! I mean, even when you know you’re a housemate, is one of nerves and excitement and then a little bit more nerves!

To ensure this final series of the fly on the wall show goes out with a bang, the producers have some twists and tricks up their sleeves with a chance for ex BB housemates to battle it out to become the ultimate housemate! The public will be able to vote for the ex housemates they want back in, so if you want to see this feisty Scottish lass back in then get me back in there! All details are on the official Channel 4 website!

I am so grateful and happy I got to be a part of this FABULOUS TV show, it really was the best experience of my life, so a huge thank you to all (especially the producers who picked me!) and I cannot wait for it all to start again this year! BRING.IT.ON!!

Oh Look, It’s Pictures From The BB11 House…

Big Brother 11 is due to start tonight, and we’re already like kids at Christmas, ripping into our presents before we’re actually allowed to do so, and obviously that means sneaking a peek at the inside of the new BB house.

We’ve already had a look at 60 of the potential housemates today (and to be honest, none of them really float our boats) but the house does look rather interesting, so much so that our eyes hurt a little bit trying to understand it.

Looking at these pictures is kinda like showing a kid an adventure playground and not letting them in, it’s annoying me that I cant run around in there and create mischief, it all looks so nice and shiny, not like some of the old sets.

The entrance in and out of the house is the sleekest I’ve ever seen it look, and reincorporating the living room into the main house is another great idea of BB’s, I never did like it being all the way across the garden.

The bedroom looks rather menacing with it’s scary clown bedding and wallpaper, and those beds do look a little bit short for the average person – unless the want to sleep with their heads upright against those daft diagonal headboards.

The kitchen and dining room don’t really look anything too spectacular, but the bathroom I am a big fan of… it looks like something out of a spa – well except for the glass walls everywhere – you wouldn’t be wanting to get butt naked there would you?

Speaking of glass, it looks as though pretty much all of the interior walls are made of glass – surely there must be one of two hidden passages and things lurking around? Big Brother wouldn’t be Big Brother without a few surprises up his sleeve now would he?

Finally, the garden is just another haven of tranquillity, topped off by something called ‘the nest’ which looks likely to give housemates somewhere cosy to go and snuggle / bitch / cry to their hearts content.

Wow, I’m so excited already.
