BB Banner

Follow-up to Big Brother Final from For blog's sake

So, I went to the BB Final of Friday. I didn't really make it onto the TV but if you watched (very) carefully, you will have been able to see my lovely banner (courtesy of Casey and Jo).

BB Banner

After the torrential rain in Coventry held us up we managed to make it down to the Elstree Studios in Borehamwood at around 7pm. Despite being in the first group of audience members to be let in, we had a not–so–great spot in the crowd. We were facing the house beneath where the ex–housemates were sat hence why we didn't really get on the telly (the cameras all tend to face the house so we were out of shot!)

Before the live show started, Davina came out to do a little rehearsal and speak to the crowd. Casey and Jo, you will be pleased to know that the great Davina spotted the banner – she read it aloud and proceeded to cross her legs and gave me a thumbs up. Her midwife was on hand at the final just in case she did go into labour – luckily she was not needed!

The other people in the audience were what you would expect of BB fans really… I imagine that they are also the people who apply to be in BB! A lot of loud people who are pretty irritating. There was one woman stood near us who shouted obscenities every time Aisylene's name was mentioned. The bouncer said he would chuck her out if she continued! Another guy bought a plain white t–shirt and marker pen with him and threw it up to the ex–housemates and asked Shabaz to get everyone to sign it! I imagine it is probably on E–bay today!

Anyway, it was a good evening and I was just glad it didn't rain! The fireworks and glitter streamers were really good and it was interesting to be at a live show! I'm not sure whether I would go again but i'm glad that I have been. Thanks Sam!
