Every day really. Depends on the place too. In Manchester got recognised like every 2 minutes, in London maybe once every few hours or so, so quite different really, it's a weird one for sure. I would've done BB, even if it was never aired on TV!

Have your opinions changed on Rylan and BOTS, and would you ever be a pannelist?

Also who did you like the least?

You did very well mate
Ah sorry pal, but glad you were happy with the winner. I think in the house me and Deborah both knew that an Asian male/Black female could never win (we talked about this since week 1 together) so, once it was down to the final 3 I was like 99.99% positive that Isabelle would win. I was already congratulating her in the bathrooms Deborah winning would've been amazing though, would've been so great to see the money go to her child's education, and I would've killed to see the black girl curse being beaten but alas.

And yes Deborah is funny, but also lovely. She really was good friend of mine in the house. And thank you, hope you enjoyed the series!!

Nah only maybe on Day 1 and then I got super conditioned to it. The digital team actually only have a really tiny camera looking at toilets so they only put it on a main screen if interesting convo is happening. Also, I took a tip from Cody Calafiore BB16USA so each time I was in the toilet I sat down and tugged my shirt forwards to avoid anything showing haha

Haha yes Kayleigh, for sure. Such a shame as she's also Welsh

Sukhvinder and Imran for sure. Apart from that, Tom and Kieran I see myself staying in touch with longterm. Rebecca, Deborah & Hannah, Isabelle, Ellie, Sam, Mandy, Arthur etc I still speak to and would love to stay friends with them longterm too.

No unfortunately I very much did not think I would. Thought it would be Isabelle for sure - me and Deborah both being POC stood no chance realistically but I was just so honoured to be in the final with lovely people like Deborah and Tom!

I honestly don't believe neither you or Deborah never won becausw of your ethnicity. Isabelle had just played a blinder, she destroyed Lotan, became incredibly selfless towards the end and she was hilariously funny. I think it undermines her win a little to suggest she won because she happens to be white.

Does Big Brother actually tell housemates when they have to go to sleep, and also lock the bedroom doors too? I'm sure I read somewhere that this happens.

What was the whole eviction process like? What did it include, how nerve-racking was it, etc??
Me and Deborah spoke lots about past seasons of BBUK in the house. She's seen pretty much every season I think. Me and Kieran spoke a bit about BBUS/BBCAN. Sukhvinder had also seen quite a few past seasons and same with Rebecca. I remember telling Ellie she looked like Grace from BB7 in the first week too But yes we (well mainly me) got told off for this "Raph is reminded again that he is not permitted to discuss previous series of Big Brother" ha ha ha

Yes lights don't go off until everyone is in bed. If people go to bed early, they lock the bedrooms for 'essential maintenance'. Parts of the house would get locked numerous times a day tbh, usually when a task was being set up or if they wanted us all together in the same place.

Evictions were soooo stressful. It was mainly stressful because I had such a strong goal of wanting to make it to the final that the thought of being sent home, terrified me. Also, the thought of losing people I cared about was very sad too (e.g. Sukhvinder week 2 and Chanelle week 7).

Sorry going in order but just had to say - no. In the house for weeks in the diary room I said I would rather Isabelle or Deborah win over me because I felt like they both really deserved it.

Questions:

Were there any BB "essentials" that you were expecting to experience that you didn't?

When Andrew was cutting/colouring your hair why were you so against Hannah being sat nearby?

What was the average day like in the BB house in reality (time scales etc) as opposed to what we saw as HL's?
1) I really wanted to get a secret task so I was really sad I didn't get to experience that. Apart from that I got to experience all of it really so loved it! Only thing I didn't like was tasks that involved contact with the outside world, really made me feel like I had to diminish my personality, and I think it played the same effect on almost every other housemate too.
2) I asked her on numerous occassions before that to not watch, I also told her for a week leading up to that, that I was nervous about Andrew cutting my hair (he would ask me every day if he could) and because when I finally agreed to it, I was being a princess about it, and didn't want extra stress
3) SOOOO much amazing stuff happens during the day. Conversations about feminism, public education v private education, conversations about race, religion but I feel like most of this doesn't get shown? Would be very interesting imo. Also a day feels like a week in there, it really does cause technology is not there to make time go by faster. Each day in there was like a chapter in a fairytale

This is really interesting, thanks for doing it Raph

Have you found it easier or harder than you expected returning to normal life? Did you consider not ever returning to the forum knowing that everyone on here would be discussing you?

Welcome back Raph, and congrats on runner up you did really well (also congrats on winning the pub quiz, the only competition that really mattered this summer let's be real... Isabelle could nevah)

There's a thread full of questions here if you want to pick some... http://www.thisisbigbrother.com/foru...d.php?t=325739
(my self promotion is shameless)

I'm really interested in the behind the scenes stuff, I'm sure there's a lot you can't tell us but is there anything you can that you think we might find interesting? Like with production/the audition process/or anything else really?
