1XTRA NEWS: THE REAL TALK OF THE STREETS
BB: Gone too far? 
Big Brother
Did you tune in for the fight? 
Was the BB fight a switch-off or a turn on for you?
Seven million viewers - the biggest Big Brother audience since the start of the series - tuned in to watch the mass brawl.

Series five is dubbed The Evil Version - with the fake eviction and plenty of achohol in supply, emotions were running high.

The scuffle ended with Emma locked away from the other housemates and an investigation into the violence. Did you watch it with disgust or excitement?
Have you offended or excited by this week's BB? Whose to blame - the producers or housemates? Who you feelin' or not?

SUKH
I HOPE STU WINS, HE'S CUTE AND HE'S THE ONLY SANE PERSON IN THE HOUSE!

Donna kenny
I think that Victor & Jason are brilliant there some laugh 2gether I think that Stuart is a bit of a werdo and Dan 2 go 2 nite !!!!!!!!

*cHaRlOtTe*
I think that EmMa should of bin alowed back in the house because she was the funnest there and the loudest and i feel sorry for MaRcO, he seems really down. i think that you should make it harder because at the moment i think that they are getting off lightly. make more exciting please. i thought that big brother one was the best. big brother aint to blame it was bound to happen, i think victor should have gone. bye bye victor.

Nicola Gunshon
I think it was great to watch, i couldnt keep my eyes off the tv. I dont think Emma should have been kept in the bedsit though, as she never got the chance to make up like the other housemates

ellie beaumont
i wanna know why emma was chucked out and not victor.he was well out of order.

Rik
Just noticed something. Y do all de peepz saying BB5 is great tlk like this, y0, when all those who don't, actually have a grasp of the english language?

GNVilla
Even though its a load of garbage, its entertaining garbage. But must admit I cannot stand anyone in the house apart from Jason, Vanessa and Victor. The rest have issues to be honest. As people have said Jason and Victor are the only one's playing the game proper and are keeping it real. The other lot seem to be a bunch of loudmouth dumbo's (especially that Emma girl who should be kicked out). Jason or Victor to win!!

Miss VIP
Big Brother Five is wicked its the best one so far....as far as calling it evil, i dont see how getting free drinks, and nice food and being off work for 10 weeks NOT TO MENTION THAT THEY GET PAID HOURLY FOR EVEN BEING ON THE SHOW IN THE FIRST PLACE....they are living a lap of luxury, as for Victor I think he needs to highlight his race card a bit more, I'm not too keen on Emma provoking him to get a reaction outta him I'm sure she fancies him otherwise she would keep her big mouth shut and stay away from him

James
I feel that Big Brother is on thin ice - at what point does winding up contestants and supplying them with alcohol become insight to violence? I feel that the show has gone to far and is now becoming criminal....

PAUL GARDINER
THIS SHOW IS EXCELLENT WE ALL LOVE TO WATCH OTHER PEOPLE,IT'S PART OF BEING A HUMAN. SO DONT DE SHY SWITCH ON SKY (CHANNEL 144)

Dave
Not particularly interested in what these inadequate misfits do or think in this artificial environment... It's just a waste of time.

Rich
C4 hits rock bottom and starts to dig. To call this waste of airtime an insult to the intelligence is a gross understatement. The televisual equivalent of a MacDonalds cheeseburger.

Neelam
BB have gone for something different this time, and its worked. Thank god that other girl left, she was sooooo boring, too agressive, at least now im enjoying it more.

Barbara
I think it is a waste of tv space .It is utter garbage.Don't put it on again.

Ross
Why cut the live feed as soon as things get interesting? Is the show about watching people being bored, or designed to show all human emotions? I say "LEAVE THE CAMERAS ON" no matter what happens.

Andy
The very desire to be one of the 'contestants' on this 'show', should automatically disqualify them from participating. I know it's a grossly overused expression these days,... but 'Get a life!',..could well have have been tailor made for the people who watch this drivel.

jez
i use to fink dat dis series of BB was gonna be as borin as da others but now I reckon dat it da best eva! now they got fightin, cussin, ripping and spittin, good job BB!

carol
I ashamed to be from newcastle as everyone watching will think all girls from newcastle are slappers after michelle`s going on`s and emma has to be the thickest girl alive.

Ben Dark
I channel hopped into the show every now and then. Just to see how it was going. IT IS UTTER RUBBISH. Didn't take long to realise the once fresh and original BB idea must have died a long time ago and now stinks something rotten. Its cheap, junk TV. A bunch of nobodies with more ego than personality bringing in the cash for the channel

Gavin
I'd rather gouge my eyes out with spoons than watch this drivell...

ZAHIDA FROM CARDIFF
I THINK BG IS CLASS BUT DAT VICTOR NEEDS TO GET SMACKED UP MAN WHAT A MUPPET SOME BADBOY WANNA B! HE AINT NUTTIN

LIZZ
CANT WAIT TILL 2NITE 4 THE BIG KICK OFF BETWEEN MICHELLE,EMMA AND THOSE 2FACED PEOPLE!

$%&"£!*
WHAT Does Victor think he is??? They need another londoner in dat house to shame him up & put that pie eater in his big headed place & as for his constant bragging about his manhood, why don't he put his $$ where his mouth is. This year is definitely 100% better than last years fiasco

lizzie, wirral
big brov is grt. i want stewart to win, coz hes well fit !!!!

KE KE
I DONT LIKE THE WAY V ICTOR IS BEING TREATED. HE IS THE ONLY REAL PERSON IN THE HOUSE HE DONT FRONT HE TELLS IT LIKE IT IS. I HOPE EMMA AND MICHELLE GET KICKED OUT I HATE THEM.

ROSIE
I THINK THAT MARCO AND VANESSA R DA BEST AND THEY SHOULD BE TOGATHER CAUSE THEY MATCH I ALSO THINK MARCO HAS A FIT BODY I WOULD LIKE TO CREAM IT

EMZ (HEREFORD)
YEAH ITS OK! ITS A SHAME THAT THEY HAVE TAKEN KITTEN OUT, THEY SHOULD HAVE KEPT HER IN. THEY NEED SOME1 TO STIR UP THE ATMOSPHERE! IT'S A GREAT HOUSE, REAL TRIPPY, REMEMBER PRIVACY CAN'T BE AN ISSUE. THEY ARE LIVE TO THE NATION, WHAT WERE THEY EXPECTING?! BIG KISSES.

Peter Alamu
i fink that victor is the don because he is a london boy and he is representing the getto life he is the only real one in there and i want him to win!!!! so here's to Victor winning.TOP BOY!

bry
i think dat da biggest backstabbers are vanessa and shell dey act so nice 2 der faces but really they are nasty. Shell is a puppy dog who follows vanessa around get dem out.

Simon
Kitten's trying to change the world....but nobody's interested!

MIKE
Big Brother.... what can I say... do i want to watch a bunch of do-anything-to-be-famous wannabe typical stereotypes in a house complaining.......... well no! But I have glimpsed a bit of it, and "rude-bwoy" victor kills me... what a chief!

amber
big brother is really good i will watch it. i love marco he is funny. i hate kitten.

Amy Belfast
i fink bb5 iz brill. lub da idea treatment room and 1 bdroom. plz plz plz chuck kitten out she iz sooooo annoying and if she b da 1 to go no1 else.

Victoria
I think it is brilliant. I hope Victor and Michelle go out. Victor is gorgeous and fit.

*IT GIRL*
I'm disappointed with this 5th series, I thought that the show would be better now that they've changed the rules and house a bit, but it hasn't changed THAT much?? I think it's getting a bit boring now, they need to change the show dramatically!!!!!!

Hayley
I think kitten should be voted out for being stroppy-she should grow up!

Ronnie
I am watching up until the 1st Eviction. I will stop watching if Kitten is not thrown out.

Rossco
New ideas people!! I'm sick of alll the rubbish reality shows - especially when its the same ones time and time again only slightly modified - somebody get a clue eh!

Kamz
I can't wait! Last year was really boring so that put me off, but as soon as I heard about the showers and beds,well. You know what they're aiming for!

XxXAmy and laurenXxX
cant wait 4 big bro 2 cum on. be watchin it all da time, hope der are gonna be sum fittens on da show. hope itz gonna be banging den da other big broz x x x x x

nicola
i LOVE big brother, i only watched 3 nd 4, but i loved them both nd im definutly watchin the next 1:)

Tis:
I've just got three words for the people responsible for BB5... STOP NO DON'T Why can’t they just leave well enough alone? I must admit, I watched quite a bit of the first BB (but by no means was I an avid viewer), and after that I barely watched an episode. AS the series went through being BB2, BB3, and then BB4, it deteriorated. Is it me, or does it feel like they can t be bothered to employ some creative thinking to give us original, intelligent and entertaining content on TV?!?!

CD and kes bo selecta
i fink its proper bo a tell ya!! c-r-a-i-g d-a-v-i-d

laura
i am going to watch big brother just to laugh at the stupid people that go on the show and put themselves through the embarrassment - and because i heard this one is going to be EVIL!!!!

Charli
its stupid. the first 2 were ok, then wen bb3 came on, it was a case of, "omg, not agen, please" they must make a lot of money out of it, but who would ACTUALLY, in their right mind, willingly enter a house where not only do they know that millions of people will be watching them, but they will be forced to do things that will humiliate them even further? Do they hope they're going to get a career out of it?yes, granted bryan dowling did, but honestly, can they say that they're not in there to get noticed? it's taking reality tv too far.

christine
bb is the most buzzin fing around except 4 "i'm a celebrity get me out of here" that was good but cud have been better but i sooooooo cant wait 2 c who goes in dis yr.

cool
im really glad that big bro is coming back on n those who think its boring want 2 watch it this year its meant 2 b really evil

sammy/notts
i loved b brother 3 wid spencer that was class!!!! cant wait!!

Brittany
well who r u tellin 2 get a life YYYYYYAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWNNNNNN so maybe you don't like big bro nobody says you have to but others do so don't diss big bro is class.

steph
i think that big bro is quality and yea there is some pants bits sometimes but u gotta take da bad wif da good

Chrissy
I love BB especially when you get ppl in the house who dont like eachother cos thats when it gets really interestin but u always have 2 w8 2 get 2 the good stuff ;)

*E*B*O*N*Y*
I think Big Brother is the best show ever!! I watch it every night and I think to the people that don't like it, GET OVER IT, and don't watch it if you don't like it. No ones forcing anyone to watch it so stop complaining and get a life.

ChrisB
big brother rocks, last years was boring due to the bad casting and the fact the contestants all turned out to be boring....if the casting is done right then it should be a great year

Me :)
I LOVE BIG B i think its so wikid watchin the housemates have arguments and rows! having glass around the loo and shower will make the inmates embarrassed which should create lots of arguments, i mean after all that is what most british people want 2 watch!

'othey
its real life!!! Dude common big bro rox!! all dem ppl who r sayin its sad i bet u talk bout it!!! its a part of life so just chill out and put ur feet up n have a laugh.

Rachel Fi Scotland
I total luv Big Brotha ! Last yrs qoz really boring but this yrs sounds really funny ! Ppl shudnt just think that ppl go in for it for 2 minutes of fame coz its a gd experience thats why !Think about it first ! Wouldnt you like to be in a house ON TV meeting new friends and having a gd time ?!?!

stacey
hey i fink bb1 2 and 3 was ok. in bb3 most people knew they had to be loud and funny. brian dowling was a great laugh

Stacie
Big Brother is 1 of the best programs on tv but I don't really care if I ave to c peeps goin 2 the loo or goin 2 showers. I can't wait til friday, my mum and I ave watched all of them. My fave 1 wood ave to b when jade woz in big brother.

kmi
big brother is boring all they do iz walk round da house and moan i think that sum tink else should be put on

Jasmine
Big Brother is for simple minded folk. What's worse is that people are stupid enough to pick up the phone and vote for one of these social parasites. It wouldn't be so bad if CH4 didn't dedicate almost every hour of everyday to the show becuase then at least I could watch CH4 without hearing a BB update. The first BB, albeit rubbish in it's own right, was a novelty but that has long worn off. Even when this years BB is over and done with, we still have to face the repercussions of seeing these attention seeking vermin on every mag, every talk show, etc. Please just let this monotonous show die.

Y
I can NOT believe they are making another BB! It was bad enough having it on TV during the summer for the past 4 years! It is really dull television, I don't see the fun in watching people locked in a house for weeks. Do people have no social lives if they are cooked in the house watching Big Brother everynight! Downright shameful that is.

sweetie pie
i think that the idea of havin see-through walls is fantastic.what person knows what they could be gettin up 2 without the cameras lookin at them. How can people say get a life when thay r all sad not watchin it.you r the ones who need to get a life.maybe try watchin it sometime and see wat you think of it.you may change your mind.

Megan
I did enjoy it but I think It's just getting stupid and boring now. See thru walls! Are they that desperate to boost ratings?

Beth
I do watch them *ashamed* and the last 2 were rubbish, I'm hoping this one is the most exciting, and after this, they shld stop the whole BB thing, its old

Rebecca
I love it, it is wicked man. When I am old enough I will go on it or maybe on the teen celebrity one if they have another.

*** lisa ***
Over the years I enjoyed Big Brother, but I agree the moment has passed and I think a new programme is needed badly. Contestants are just hoping to be the new Brian or Jade!!!!

Big Brother BORED!
Cum on, they've managed 2 squeeze out about a billion series, all of em with the same boring house m8s saying the same stupid things. y can't they jus give it a rest?! They're trying 2 bring in more viewers by getting the contestants 2 sleep in da same bed an hav se thru showers - the only viewers they'll get will b pervy freeks lookin 4 sum enteratinment! Can't believe the UK r still interested in Big Brother! It's like soooo last year!

milly
the makers of big brother are only interested in people having sex live on tv! thats why they're putting double beds in, its disgusting! thats not what tv is all about.

jordan
i think if this years bb is as bad as last years it will be the last one. Iv watched bb since bb2 and i have to say bb3 was defo the best all bb needs is another jade and another alex and bb will be awsome. come on bb5!!!!

YYYYYYAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWNNNNNN
big brother sucks. i mean, come on. which saddos wanna sit around watchin actors pretend 2 fanc ppl? if ur 1 of them, u shood b ashamed of urself. G-E-T- -A- -L-I-F-E spelts get a life, & the viewers of big brother shood do just that.

me
i think big brother is one of the most boring programmes ever made and i cant believe theyre making another one! they get more and more stupid and this one...well, its nearly as stupid as me, which is saying something!

black knight
it was good first time around although now it has become a showcase for everyone wanting 15 minutes of fame where as before it was meant to be an experiment on human interaction which made it interesting & made us feel like we were watching something new. I say just give us decent new programming instead of trying to polish off old rubbish as something new.

xSarahx
I hav watched bb every year and last year has to be the worst. Watching dull cameron win was a bad bad choice and hopefully bb producers hav thought of sumthin 2 make it as gud as it was when it started. i wanna c a helen or jade on r screens 2 bring back the best memories! Cmon bb 5!!!

ashlee
i thought the first two bb were the best but after that they all just seem the same. but this year i think they are trying to make it more entertaining by the people they have put in eg a gay couple, a female stripper and i cant the of the others now. i think they have gone over the top though by putting a toilet with glass all around. i mean who wants to watch people on the loo?! the housemates will find that hard!

moi
The 1st & 2nd series were the best - every1 was talking about it. Since then the novelty has worn off and watching the producers trying to recreate that 2000/1 magic makes for uncomfortable viewing. I will give it a chance though, but I think this could be the last yr 4 BB, in a way I hope it is.

sarah
i dont watch big bro in the beginning but i somehow get drawn into the whole thing closer 2 the end of the show. but 2 be honest no big brother show can beat the first big brother - that was the best one.

G
I hate Big Brother, I feel it has lost its appeal. the first two series were good but after last year it was a good programme to put you to sleep.

sarah
I've watched every big brother but it seems to be the same old thing... hopefully the changes to this year's will bring some entertainment that we havent seen before. the see through walls im not sure about, but we'll see.

Kane
i'm interested as the see through walls will go down well when the ladies get mucky... also they have put a mud bath so they go in that and then have to shower and get naked... very sneaky but very entertaining... i also heard an asylum seeker is going into the house... DISGRACEFUL... i'm not racist but that's a joke! what next?
