Also for all the good BB5 did to the BBUK franchise one thing it really did mess up was the evictions. From BB1-4 the crowd was never on site until the second show, and didn't need to be either. I've always said the eviction shows were much better when it was Davina talking directly to the viewer at home rather than trying to entertain the baying mob, and things like properly chatting with the friends and family, going into the camera runs and even into the house itself (e.g. into bedrooms while HMs were locked in the living area) just made the eviction show an actual "eviction show".
Thank you Brekkie! I'm glad you agree with my scheduling. With the eviction crowds, they would be brought into the compound during the half an hour break between shows and then the exterior used. Before that, the interior studio would be used. This works too because I have a new stage added to the exterior where interviews can take place.
