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?

Comedy is a weird one. One minute you're performing to 12 people (8 of whom are comedians) in a room above a pub in Leicester Square with no microphone, no stage lights and a potted plant as a set piece and five years and a lot of miles later you can sell out your own show at The Lowry. Then, if you get super lucky, you get to do some TV.
