It’s back, and this time it’s evil. Big Brother, the show where a group of wannabes try desperately to outdo each other in ever-escalating levels of outrageousness, all in the pursuit of fame and fortune, began again last week. Sounds like any bunch of assistants really. This time the housemates feature plenty of representatives from the law. There’s legal secretary Emma, law graduate Ahmed and Marco, one time vice-president of his university’s law society. But they’ll have to go some to beat the star of last year’s effort. Mills & Reeve partner Nick Stone is the most senior lawyer yet to take part in the 10-week godfather of TV reality shows. Sensibly, Stone chose to work undercover, masking his knowledge of the law by talking at length about his plan to invent the ultimate toaster and using the obviously made-up comedy name of Jon Tickle. How we laughed.
