Former Big Brother host Davina McCall has offered a few words of advice to the hopefuls who are applying for this year’s Big Brother, which is of course to be aired by Channel 5.
Speaking to the Daily Star, Davina – who won’t be involved with the show herself – said, “If I was auditioning, I’d impress Big Brother within the first ten seconds.
“You’ve got to do or say something or be different enough for them to say, ‘Oh, you’re interesting’.
“When you get in there, hang back for a couple of weeks and get to know people.
“Watch a little bit from outside and let all the big characters annoy everybody. I always think the people who are really loud at the beginning are the first out.
“I hate people who run around talking to the cameras all the time. “I don’t want you to start having a commentary with Big Brother.”
Davina also warned against becoming a “peacekeeper” when actually in the house.
She said, “If there’s a stonking argument going on, don’t go in and break it up.
“I do quite enjoy watching something and [seeing] it resolve itself.
“And the other really important thing is, use the diary room. A lot. You get a dynamic in the diary room.
“When someone’s looking down the lens, you feel connected to that housemate. And the public need to feel connected to you if you’re going to win it.
“And have a reason to be in there, rather than just being a wannabe.”
