A massive step in the right direction with the extra live feed and bringing in a show to concerntrate on the psychological aspect of the show/housemates (this was my favourite segment during BBLB and I adored BB on the couch)!

I hope the narration by Marcus is stripped back to how it used to be, and there's a vast range of ages with the housemates (hopefully with very interesting back stories that we can watch unfold on the feeds)

Would like to see the stage/way housemates enter to be something similar to how it used to be, but I imagine the set design with that eye with the weird door probably cost a chunk of money to make, so I doubt that'll happen

Edit: would be amazing if Emma could give us a proper house tour too

Not too keen on Rylan presenting BOTS if their plan is to make it more formal/"classy"... but I could be proven wrong.

I really hope all these changes results in better viewing figures, C5 need to give this series a good push in the marketing department to let everyone know that the show will be fresh.

no tasks in which HMs private chats are given away to the others would be nice plus those dam name tags to go but i expect thats to much to hope for

I'm going to reserve judgement until the show actually starts,there's plenty they can cock up along the way.

To be honest, I wouldn't mind seeing the back of Marcus as well. It's time to freshen up the whole show.

That was the highlight in a very boring series.

Splitting the prize money and giving it to the most undeserving prick in the history the show was memorable,I wouldn't call it a highlight though

I've liked all I've heard so far, but I'm willing to bet they sod it all up by doing the ridiculous first night noms before they've got to know one another first again. Wish they'd not have noms til they've been in at least a week and settled in, then we'd have time to decide who we actually wanted to go first too !

It was one of the biggest talking points of the whole series.

They didn't give him it, he won it.

The twist at the end was genius, pure tv gold. I'll never forget the look on Luke's face as he thinks he's won 50k only to find out Conor pressed the buzzer before him.

I must admit I did post screenshots of it
But I would have preferred that whole event never happened.
I don't agree with messing with the prize money at all.

Agree, first night noms, twists and tasks are sooo boring and annoying. Let them get in and get to know each other and give the viewers a chance to get to know the housemates too.

A great launch night twist would be to not have one at all :P
Surely the housemates these days know something is going to happen?
So I agree

I dont mind a launch twist as long as it in no way impacts on nominations/evictions.

Maybe something that will benefit the HMs like access to a gamesroom or a bar or something on those lines..nothing that effects the nomination process but helps to pull some groups of people together or something.

Main show presenter - good change
BOTS presenters - dubious
Extra weekend BOTS - good change
Psych show - good change
Live feed - still just 22 hours a day short!

Still waiting to see what they do with the HL editing & narration style. That needs smartening up. And the website/twitter coverage was quite poor with the updates.

Bit On The Psych probably won't be what you think, probably a chance for C5 to bring on idiots to slander or build up the HM's of their choice.

Rest easy in the sure and certain knowledge that his 50 grand will be long gone with **^% all to show for it. The guy was an idiot, and idiots are sharpish parted from their ill-gotten.

There is definite cause for optimism, but I'm reserving full judgement until AFTER the series has finished.

I say focus on the website and have only one Twitter account, Do the text based live updates on the website in its own section because on Twitter they are limited by 140 characters
