Gone are the days where regular people from the marginalised walks of life enter the Elstree compound, as now Big Brother needs "somebodies" and established personalities that are used to performing on camera already. I completely get that in recent years, housemates have under-delivered by not showing anything reminiscent of their VT's, but isn't the principle of Big Brother to bring 'ordinary' civilians into the house?
According to recent theory, the trend of taking "selfies" is actually linked to mental health conditions, with a focus on an individuals obsession with looks and image. Studies have revealed that the majority of teenagers who are image and body conscious, have a compulsion to repeatedly take and post selfies across social media sites.
On June 5th I emerged from the Big Brother eye like a deer in the headlights, wondering what on earth I was getting myself into by entering Britain's most infamous house. With a fear of the unknown, I nervously trembled down a stage with hundreds of strangers booing me and calling me every name under the sun as I embarked on the start of the most unforgettable month of my life.
