We have nearly reached the end of week one of Big Brother and the reboot has more than delivered.

When it was announced that the OG reality TV show was returning, of course we were more than excited, but we had our concerns.

Would they pick normies as contestants or were they going to give the reboot the Love Island treatment and select a bunch of twenty-something influencers who were looking for fame more than anything else.

It turns out we should have had more faith in BB producers as this year's housemates are a diverse mix of people from all walks of life.

One housemate who believes they are already a winner is Farida Khalifa.

Before entering the BB house, Farida admitted that she reckons the only reason her housemates would put her up for nomination is if "they feel intimidated by the fact that I've got potential to win this, it’s as simple as that."

What an icon.
