THE latest series of Big Brother kicked off last night with the unveiling of a house made up exclusively of idiots and half-wits.
It’s the first time the show has featured an all-female idiot house and the producers hope it will bring a new edge to the format, now in its eighth year.
“We want the show to get back to its roots,” said a Channel Four spokeswoman. “It’s not supposed to be a launch pad for wannabe celebrities, it’s supposed to be a giant fish-tank full of cretins.”
Last night’s show began with an apology for the last series of Celebrity Big Brother when Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty had her head shoved down the toilet by Jade Goody and the cast of Hollyoaks.
The first male idiot will be introduced to the house next week. He is due to be sentenced at Bow Street Magistrates Court on Monday afternoon.
