Why I Will Be Glued To BB9 UK

June 2, 2008

According to this article, the new series of Big Brother UK, which starts on Thursday, June 5th, will include a blind housemate.

Being physically DisAbled, I am thrilled by these reports. I have waited nine series to see a physically DisAbled housemate in the Big Brother House. As much as I loved the 2006 UK winner, Pete Bennett, who has Tourette’s Syndrome, this condition is not my idea of a physical DisAbility. I could be wrong about that, though, so no offence to anyone if I am. That is just my opinion.

“BB is ready to take a blind person into the house.

“Everything possible has been done to make sure the person settles in and is not sidelined. The house has been designed in an accessible way.

“Bosses plan to do everything in their power to make sure the person’s stay is comfortable and enjoyable.”

I am hoping against hope that these reports turn out to be true. I have no doubt that if they do, countless DisAbled people across the UK will be glued to BB9, and will be backing this housemate to win. One thing is for sure. I will be one of them. And I will be following the housemate’s progress closely on this blog, right through to their eviction… or victory. Watch this space!
