Please make up sources, quotes etc to show your skills.

Please send us your mock article to: – We will reply as soon as possible to all applications we receive (we hate it when people don’t!). Full on-going development and training/support will be given to our new writers.

    Thank God! The spelling and grammar mistakes on this site have been atrocious this season!

      Ditto YEAHYEAHYEAH. When wil people learn for example, it is not – “your stupid”. It is – “you’re stupid” or – ” you are stupid”. And – “I could OF done that” instead of – “I could HAVE done that”. :whew:

  2. “…How much should Conor of recieved last night?…”

    See anything wrong with that sentence? Anyone???????

    Yes, please let’s get some writers who have a real command of the English language.

    • Fell free to offer your obviously excellent writing skills then? Instead of just nit-picking at people who do this in their spare time without making a penny. :wondering:

        Alec, I would love to help – problem is I have a computer that probably belongs in a museum – could almost cook a four course meal while it logs on to TBB!
        Should I be as lucky as Conor, and suddenly come into £50.000 in the near future, I will immediatley apply. Thanks to all of you – for keeping us up-dated, for the videos and news clips you post, and for this site which now feels like home to many of us. Sometimes we prefer to come here for the news rather than actually watch BB…….better for the blood pressure!

        Oh dear. I hope I haven’t upset the reporters of this site. My criticism of bad grammar and spelling was meant for people posting. So I am sorry if I have offended tbb. I love this site. :love: :bigsmile:

            Sally. Don’t be so touchy. Chill out. It was just a bit of banter. I didn’t mean to offend you. :lipssealed:

            By the way, your text was perfect LOL. :giggle:

      • “Fell free to offer your obviously excellent writing skills then?”

        Fell free? Come on, dude. You were writing a snippy response. A quick once over would have given your point a bit of credit and emphasis.

        And I’m sorry, but it’s not nit picking – it wasn’t a spelling mistake – it’s a completely different word that was used wrongly. I’m impressed that these people are kind enough to do this for free in their spare time, but if you can’t spell or write properly, maybe a job involving writing isn’t the best idea.

        Or let’s just keep the myth going that using words like, “Should of,” instead of “Should have” is right.

        Hello Microsis. I thought that you had got locked in your dark room. It’s 4 am and I can’t sleep. Maybe I’m thinking of poor old Conman and how he is going to spend his hard earned dishonest winnings!!! :giggle:

            Afternoon Microsis. You obviously found the red button, along with Sammyvan, to get out of the dark room but I hope it was in time to watch that waste of time programme BOTS. What a farce! It looks as though they are going to let Conman propose to his girlfriend on TV!! And why did they let a girl from Derry phone in on Jamie’s segment of BOTS to speak to Conman and support him??????? :angry:

            At least GB got 3 gold medals yesterday which cheered me up. :star: :star: :star:

    They should have kicked him out the door with a free epilator. See what his girlfriend makes of that!!

  4. puddleglum on 6:32pm August 4 '12

    hey Alec
    I check into this site six or seven times a day,
    keep up the good work .
    and thanks :happy:

  5. on 7:10pm August 4 '12

    It wasn’t till last week that I became aware that you do this site voluntarily, as this is the case please accept my apologies for complaining that the site wasn’t quick enough & thank you for the amazing job that you do.

  7. Orchid333 on 4:20am August 5 '12

    I wonder why on the channel 5 BB site it shows Conor as being evicted? Strictly speaking, he wasn’t – but he should have been weeks ago. :wondering:

  8. Sally on 1:21pm August 5 '12


    Alec that photo is a bit frightening.
    I think it may put some of the girls off. :giggle:
    We do not have a female reporter come on girls show willing. :bigsmile:

    • I don’t think we have ever had a female reporter that has stuck with it :(
      Any females out there want to show the lads how it’s done? hehe

    • Biddy on 2:46pm August 5 '12

      Hi…I agree with Microsis that you write some excellent comments, BBNUT….I don’t think there is a deadline..
      Alec will be very pleased to hear from you i am sure…

      Yes, have a go, BBNUT. Something I would love to do. Unfortunately I have to spend the majority of my time with my mother at her nursing home – not conducive to writing ‘happy stories’! I also have a computer which the local museum would be grateful to exhibit.

  10. Orchid333 on 2:35pm August 5 '12

    Microsis, Sammyvan or BBNUT – do you have any idea as to how many people will be in the final please?

    :wondering: :wondering: :wondering:

    • Biddy on 2:42pm August 5 '12

      Hi Orchid333,,,It is a double eviction on Friday, so that will leave 5 for the final on Monday 13th…

        Hi Biddy. Thanks for that. :bigsmile:

        Luke A to win :call: :phone:

          I’m a bit late ORCHID333, but I would say the same as Biddy – unless they have a surprise [ another one!] for us?
          I hope they will all be up this week – no nominations, which would be fair. If the insiders continue to put Luke A and Deana up, it does not say much for their game plan! Surely they have realised the two are popular outside? Have a feeling Luke S will be up if there are nominations, and he will probably nom Adam. Could be very interesting.

          • Biddy on 6:17pm August 5 '12
            MEMBER (906 COMMENTS)

            Hi Sammyvan,,,Luke S has a free pass to final, so won’t be up for nomination…I just hope they put all the others up that would be the fairest way …then at least we decide who is in the final,,,I think if two go it will be Ashleigh and Sara…think Sara has lost a few fans lately…but thats just my opinion…

            Hi Biddy – think that’s what is known as a “Senior Moment” – when the brain goes to mush!!
            Of course Lukeass is not up…maybe I so wanted it to happen that I could already see him walking out!
            Agree about Sara – she has become a little ‘simple’ lately. Not sure why she seems to enjoy starting little arguments? Ash – poor girl, has’nt a clue that Luke almost walked out with the 50 grand – the penny has not dropped yet!

          • Orchid333 on 6:41pm August 5 '12
            MEMBER (3183 COMMENTS)

            Thanks for that Sammyvan. I also hope they are all up. This will the fairest thing for BB to do. However, when has BB been fair throughout this series?

            Luke A to win; if not Deanna and if not Adam.

            Sara and Ashleigh to go on Friday.

            I am just going to open a bottle of wine and wait for 9 0′clock to watch BB.

            On a completely different matter, well done Andy Murray on winning a gold medal. :clapping: :star: :drink:

  11. BBNut on 2:54pm August 5 '12

    I had no idea, however, I’d guessed at 5 for the final! Any more and it’s all too rushed and everything is squished into a minute timescale. Knowing BB and this year’s rollercoaster of a series literally anything could happen! I must say I do find it extremely delicious when BB offloads an unsuspecting housemate at the penultimate hurdle…BB5′s Stuart anyone? Cruel but devilishly satisfying! :devil:

    • on 4:01pm August 5 '12

      Yes BBNUT you have just proved that you are definitely the man for the job!!

    • Sally on 4:21pm August 5 '12
      MEMBER (2377 COMMENTS)

      Yes BB5′s Stuart went into the diary room and was evicted. I don’t recollect if Michelle was still in the house.
      Do you know if she was?

    • sammyvan on 6:13pm August 5 '12
      MEMBER (1316 COMMENTS)

      If that happened to Lukeass it may just make up for the horror that was Friday’s show! He always rushes to the diary room just in case there is a task – imagine he just did not come back out again……………poor Ash! :evilgrin:
      Of course I would be laughing on the other side of my face if Deana or Luke A went to the DR and were evicted!!
      We need something like this in the last week, keep the interest up BB. Wish BB had a “hot line” where we could send ideas for tasks. Might be an idea, Alec, to have all your members and guests send in ideas to you? Could have some great ideas for tasks.

    • Orchid333 on 6:46pm August 5 '12
      MEMBER (3183 COMMENTS)

      OMG BBNUT. That is a brilliant idea. Wouldn’t it be great if Luke A ran to the DR after BB asked for someone to go to the DR?? :giggle: and then he was evicted!!! teehee

      Yes BBNUT, you are definitely the right person for the job. :handshake: :beer:

    I don’t get why some people are criticising the reporters style of spelling on here, they’re clearly giving up their free time to keep us up to date. I am ever so pleased with this website, it’s the only Big Brother site that I actually pay attention to. You should all be very proud with this website, it’s by far, the best Big Brother website out there. I don’t even check the Channel 5 website, haha. I would love to apply for a position, however, like SammyVan, I am in that same situation. :doh:

    • yeahyeahyeah on 5:42pm August 5 '12

      I too, am very grateful that this site exists. Last season it was my favourite site and I came back here all the time to get updates, so much so that I was hardly aware that any other sites existed. But the horrible spelling and grammar and the lack of timely updates has made me seek out other sites for more up to date and readable news.
      It’s not a “style” of spelling, it’s poor spelling, simple as, and it makes the site very hard to read. And it’s not just the odd typo every now and again, which is totally understandable. It’s been clear from the multitude of spelling mistakes and poor grammar that the person who is writing the majority of the articles on this site at this time does not have a good grasp of how to write properly in the English language.
      I do appreciate that people volunteer their time to creating and updating this site, that is commendable, however, if it’s not done properly, people will leave and seek out other sites that do see why proper spelling and grammar is an important part of good journalism.
      I do apologize for my first post, as it wasn’t a very constructive criticism. I hope I have been able to clarify how frustrating it has been and the reasons why I feel this way. Hopefully this is a criticism that those behind this site can work with. I really do think it is a great site, but success isn’t just something you arrive at one day, it’s something that needs constant maintenance and attention to uphold. This great site deserves great writing and regular updates to keep it great.

        I’ve not had any problems understanding the spelling, so they make the odd mistake so what ! They have probably just got in from work/college haven’t had dinner/ shower & are rushing to update the site VERY WELL DONE I say . We should gladly accept the spelling mistakes rather than have no site at all.
