Review

It was once a behemoth of reality TV, but could this series of Celebrity Big Brother be the last ever? Tabloid reports suggest that Channel 5 is pulling the plug after this run concludes. While that news understandably elicits shrugs all round, there’s still no other show on television that delivers surreal showbiz moments, such as last series when Amanda Barrie earnestly sponge-bathed Wayne Sleep.

This series has the theme “eye of the storm”, with all of the celebrity contestants having been caught up in a media furore. Rumoured celebrities include Meghan Markle’s half-sister Samantha, Cheers actress Kirstie Alley and adult-film star Stormy Daniels. Maybe
that commissioners’ axe can’t come soon enough.

Summary

Emma Willis is back to host another round of fly-on-the-wall fun, revealing the fresh group of famous personalities who will have their every word and move recorded for the enjoyment of the viewing public over the last few weeks of the summer. Eye of the Storm is this year's theme, as all the renowned residents have been caught up in their own media storm - and now they have a lot to prove to the public and possibly one another.
