I think if there is a problem with the 'normal' BB, then it's that blurry line between civilian and celeb. Many people who've been in BB could have sneaked into CBB, and vice versa.

I think the trick is to make the 'normal' BB into just that. About the average person. No more wannabes, models, etc. Let's have Dave, 32, who works as a bricklayer. Susan, 19, a receptionist - never slept with a celeb. Pete, a road sweeper from Hull - doesn't want to be a TV presenter.
That doesn't mean boring because they must have personalities. But no more wannabes. Geddit.
