Yes in my opinion. It had legendary housemates and it has so many iconic moments

- David's Dead
- I'm caustrophobic Darren!
- Tiffany's shoe rant
- The whole steph and Jeremy mess

A TV masterpiece

It had some great housemates and memorable moments but it doesn't really click as an amazing series for me.

All of the memorable stuff happened in Week 2/3 then the last two weeks were uneventful (they even had a task where they had their shit inspected) and focused too much on the Stephanie / Jeremy storyline that was never interesting to begin with. Like CBB15, it could've done being a week shorter.

Yes it is. Although the hype I have for it died down once I watched more series, it still holds a special place in my heart and came out when I was at a good point in my life. The cast felt much more Ch4-like than any other one I had seen from Ch5 and everyone gave something worthwhile to the series at some point. I wouldn't say it's an AMAZING series, but it's only real competition is 4 which got too spiteful at times, and 9 which never really hit the same time, so it's also the best by default

No but it's a very good season. As said, it did die down... sort of not too long after "David's Dead" ironically

But it wasn't a terrible finish either and had some HIGHlights especially around the beginning!

It's definitely up there!

Every single housemate bar Kristina and the actual winner delivered.

If David's Dead hadn't have happened, then it probably would have been pretty meh but there were some amazing moments beside that. Utterly DIRE winner though and the **** inspection task was a bit of a low point in the show's history imo

It’s a tossup between that and CBB19 surely?

The best C5 one, yes, but 3/4 both outweigh it.

No. It’s great, but the last week and a half was pretty substandard.

No, it had some good moments, it had Tiffany, Gemma and Megan which is always good, but the top 3 is a prime of example why the majority of it was trash.
