Housemates table[edit]

I can't remember, but didn't someone replace Nick? -- 9cds(talk) 11:34, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

No idea, I was only 10 at the time and my parents had put it in my head that the show sucked (I now know better of course). If he was replaced it probably says on the archive I put in the external links section. --LorianTC 11:41, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
Claire replaced Nick. David | Talk 11:42, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, I just saw that on the archive, it doesn't say when though... --LorianTC 11:44, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
Hm, should we leave her entry day blank for now? -- 9cds(talk) 11:46, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
Guess that's all we can do for now. --LorianTC 11:48, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
Damn, I'm surprised I found a source so fast. [1] She entered on day 37. --LorianTC 11:52, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
Good work :) -- 9cds(talk) 11:58, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

Problems with the info box[edit]

Why does the infobox (contestant list) link to non-existant sections, and there's no links to the contestants who have articles? It seems this edit added {{Big Brother housemates}} and ever sense then, all the links are defective. I got no problem with {{Big Brother housemates}}, but it should only be used, if somebody's interested in making sections for each and every contestant, or if the template is fixed to handled stand-alone articles. --Rob 00:29, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

Well this article is a stub, unfinished. There's information about the housemates in the link at the bottom of the page if anyone wants to do it. --LorianTC 07:11, 26 June 2006 (UTC)
Being an unfinished stub is ok. However, broken syntax can't be left for days. I put back the old table *temporarily*. When housemate sections are added, you can put back {{Big Brother housemates}} from history here. --Rob 02:37, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit]

I dunno where this logo's from, but it's not the one used in the TV show. The TV logo featured a close-up of a real eye, which Davina revealed to be housemate Melanie Hill's. Anyone got an image of it? BillyH 02:00, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

Nominations table[edit]

Does anyone have any information for who nominated who etc? I was only 9 so can't really remember the series that well. We need to create a nominations table... godgoddingham333 21:48, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Week 7[edit]

I'm missing some nominations from Week 7. What I know is this: Darren was the only person to change a nomination the second time (Melanie changed to Claire). Claire and Craig received 3 nominations, Darren received 2 and Anna and Melanie received 1 each. Maybe we can work out the missing nominations. -- AnemoneProjectors (talk) 10:02, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

Here's my thoughts: Claire probably nominated Mel and Darren. Craig probably nominated Anna. Anna, Darren and Mel probably nominated Craig. -- AnemoneProjectors (talk) 10:28, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

I know Darren nominated Melanie and Craig in week 7, first time round. —Preceding unsigned comment added by SimonPeter (talkcontribs)

Would be to get a map?[edit]

I will look around for one. 80.229.241.200 22:35, 20 August 2006 (UTC) jimmy93211

Week 9 percentages[edit]

The table says Darren got 13% of the votes out of 3, Anna got 41% out of 2 and Craig got 46% to win. Out of what is the 46%? Surely it should be 54% out of 2? It doesn't make sense to me. — AnemoneProjectors (talk) 20:06, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

[2] and [3] quote figures of 13%, 49% and 51%. I've updated the table to match this. Tra (Talk) 23:18, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
Ah yeah, I thought it was close. Thanks for that :) — AnemoneProjectors (talk) 18:36, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

They didn't re-open the voting after the 3rd place eviction so the C4 percentages @ [4] are correct. Someone has re-worked the "out of 2" percentages based on the actual votes cast for the three contestants. Ymlaenllanelli 12:07, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

I guess I had a different sort of tv as mine distinctly remembered the voting reopening after Darren's eviction.FanRed XN | talk 05:43, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Big Brother UK 1 logo.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Big Brother UK 1 logo.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 01:25, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Upgraded to C-Class[edit]

I have upgraded this article to C-Class as it meets the criteria, the article has a good amount of information but not enough yet for B-Class. More reliable sources would be good to improve the article. ♪♫Alucard 16♫♪ 22:04, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

First series?[edit]

How is this the first series when Big Bro is 10 years old this year? Would that not mean that it started in 1999? I think it did. Why is it also called BB10 this year? [5] Keithf2008 (talk) 17:06, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Never mind. I was thinking that 00 + 09 = 2009 = Big Bro 9.. I was wrong. Blonde moment. Sorry. Keithf2008 (talk) 17:21, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Craig Phillips in Bo Selecta[edit]

Craig phillips also played himself in channel 4's 'Bo Selecta' for 2 series from 2002 and the christmas special 'A bear's tail' in 2004 and contributed to the Bo Selecta christmas single 'Proper Crimbo' in 2003.

Andy Davidson Rap single[edit]

Hi i noticed the reference here since the point was deleted. Is this Now Magazine being insufficiently researched? [1] —Preceding unsigned comment added by Scopey123 (talkcontribs) 15:28, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Makeover[edit]

Hello! As I'm sure you've noticed, I have cleaned up the Wiki article and added much information that was not previously included. Sections such as "Format", "House", "Broadcasts", "Prizes", and the Controversy section should be featured in all Big Brother Wiki articles. The BBUK pages are in terrible shape, and need cleaned up. I will be working on them all, but obviously it will take some time for me to fix them all. If you would like to contribute and fix the articles to match the suit of this one (or add more sections, if necessary), please do so! Also, each page should have a "Ratings & reception" section as well. As the show is now 12 years old, it is difficult to find the ratings for the series. If you find any reliable source with ratings information, PLEASE feel free to post the information! It would be greatly appreciated. Also, BB articles are now required to have a written weekly summary, not the chart that is still commonly used. Anyone who would like to fix this in other articles, please feel free to do so! Thank you. :) --Sethjohnson95; September 23, 2012

Week 1 nominations[edit]

Anybody know why the nominations start at Week 2, what happened to Week 1? MSalmon (talk) 18:07, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
