Editor Reports: Big Brother Free Zone

Viewers have barely had time to get over the mania surrounding Britain’s Got Talent but tonight the 10th series of Big Brother launches.

Even though the popularity of the Channel 4 series has waned somewhat over the past few years it won’t stop tabloids, celebrity magazines and certain internet sites reporting every little snippet of gossip, scandal and speculation about Big Brother…but not us.

Tonight another tabloid favourite returns – Big Brother. Even if only a handful of people bother to tune in you can guarantee than certain tabloids, celebrity magazines and websites will print every little trivial story regarding the contestants, their private lives and antics in the house. Oh yes thousands of words will be written this summer regarding very little of worth at all.

Everywhere this is except here. Oh yes we are once again declaring our site a Big Brother Free Zone! We’ve done so for the past two years and we don’t intend to stop now.
