This series is soon drawing to an end. After this week's "Annihilation" it really does feel the show has significantly shifted from the stage it was at a week ago...
My biggest guilty pleasure this series is Jayne. In the beginning she left no impression on me in the "other" house amongst the rest of them, but four weeks in and she has me. Although the main enjoyment that comes from her place in the house seems to mainly take place within the diary room, she genuinely does strike me as a sweet, sincere woman...
Off the top of my head, there is a weird man-mannequin by the name of Chelsea, who appears to have washed ashore during an oil slick, a celebrity offspring, a posh-but-not-posh country girl, a tough guy, and of course the token twins.
The production team didn't cast the net very wide when thinking about the types of men they wanted on the new series. It seems a rippling set of abs and some terrible opinions on women were the only thing required to get you noticed by producers, which has resulted in a pretty damning representation of the modern male on the show.
The Great British Sewing Bee is back and this means one of two things. You're either swooning over Patrick Grant being back on the TV or you're wishing you could make your own clothes. While I can't help you with the first one here are five reasons you should stop wishing and start doing...
For the record no, it doesn't put me off having kids. Not in the slightest. And yes I can watch the baby's head crowning and a woman have a c-section without diving behind a cushion on the sofa and screaming.
"Who are you here with?" asked Cowell when the seemingly inexperienced 12 year old stepped up to the microphone. She replied her mum, dad and brother. She conveniently forget to mention her agent, personal stylist, manager, lawyer, vocal coach, hairdresser and macrobiotic chef who were undoubtably all standing in the wings cheering her on.
Signing The X Factor up for another 3 series' as reported is a big mistake. Give it a break, a long, well deserved break and if you really REALLY must Simon Cowell, bring it back in a few years' time when we've had time to perhaps miss it.
The 2016 series of The Voice is the last one with the BBC, and with a move to ITV on the horizon, there's a chance for the show to fulfill its full potential. By keeping the best bits, and implementing a handful of small but much-needed changes, a truly fantastic show could be (re)born. Seriously.
The adorable Giovanni Pernice of Strictly Come Dancing fame (yes, he is every bit as handsome and charming in real life as he appears in photos and on screen) gave a Master Class in Latin dancing last Friday night, very well attended, and so much fun, in the beautiful setting of Karen Hardy Studios... and I was there!
In an age where the majority of pop artists are scared to have an opinion, scared to look foolish, scared to act in a way that will draw attention to themselves, or away from their music, Susan Boyle feels like a beacon of authenticity.
Masterchef is undeniably well past its sell by date, but despite all the failings, maybe it's still about worth occasionally tuning into.
Of course, James "Arg" Argent should have been counting his blessings that he was so hopeless he managed to leave the competition unharmed. The fact he was taking part at exactly the same time as appearing in Sugar Free Farm couldn't have been easy.
It is a couple of weeks since my Take Me Out episode aired and I am still asking myself why I did it... We all know that first dates are usually quite nerve-wracking - now imagine being filmed by a camera crew with a microphone recording every embarrassing word that comes out of your mouth. Did it feel natural? No. While the date wasn't scripted, there was plenty of off-camera prompting from producers hoping to spark some romance - which tends to make you think the date is going better than it is.
Boredom set in and i'd had enough of being told when to clap and when to shout. Having realised we are not actually 'Lucky' ticket holders but un-paid background artists, the evening was soured.
Winning CBB for me was a fantastic experience, and if I could only give one piece of advice to any of the housemates it would be simply this, relax - don't forget to be nice and enjoy every single moment of it!
