'Big Brother: Timebomb' - Week Six Review

Helen was cancer to last year's Big Brother house and this year's series was equally affected. I can only feel sorry for the housemates who auditioned for this year's series, rather than last year's but ended up having to live with the corrupted, twisted, rotten woman.

Celebrity Big Brother 2015: Is Perez Hilton the Real Victim in the House of Hate?

Could it be though that he is just really proficient in unravelling the personalities of those there with him and with this ultimately being 'just a game show', is playing them for who they really are and showing the viewers a side of his housemates that they were hoping would not be revealed?

'Celebrity Big Brother' - Is There Anybody There?

With the exception of the increasingly deranged Hilton, most of the people in the house are pretty normal, and I never thought I'd say that about Calum Best. But if the programme can't keep hold of its guests long enough to evict them, then the public doesn't get its say and that's not the premise of Big Brother.

Has Celebrity Big Brother Finally Gone Too Far in the Name of Entertainment?

After the build-up that had TV executives instructing lawyers to watch and listen to every word that Katie Hopkins spoke, it is a statement of how far Big Brother has plunged that she has become a voice of reason and has even garnered some sympathetic ears.

The final twist, if twist it is, was that Katie Hopkins had to be nice to everyone or risk suffering her worst nightmare. We weren't told what that was, but I should imagine it's being ignored. Oh, the two slebs up for eviction are Chloe Goodman and Alexander O'Neal.

For those who love to get to grips with the ins and outs of surgery in all its glory, Channel 5's 'Botched Up Bodies' is dream viewing. On a recent episode, I operated on a patient who had previously spent in excess of £7,000 on hair transplant surgeries - which sadly, yielded little result.

Brain surgery, it's not exactly rocket science... but it is one of those jobs that people can't quite believe you do, and I am usually asked if I am joking.... So what is it like being a neurosurgeon? In common with rocket science, neurosurgery sounds more glamorous than it really is.

On Benefits and Proud - Misleading, Dishonest, Misdirecting?

There was a brief moment in On Benefits & Proud which showed Heather's two dogs, a tiny Chihuahua and another ten times its size. The big one appeared to be happily co-existing with the small one and looking after it. It was not hard to imagine the show's producers, and Channel 5 itself, being disappointed at the care shown for the weak.

Many viewers have said that this series of Big Brother was Channel 5's best ever. Actually, last years in my opinion was a LOT better. Even from the first few weeks I could tell that this year was not going to be anywhere near as entertaining or controversial as the events that took place in last year's house.

It's not the greatest TV drama you'll see all year, but as a mid-August slice of escapism it wasn't bad, even if it featured all the usual trappings of a Stephen King-inspired tale.
