Big Brother viewers furious over the contestants' entrance to the house

Big Brother viewers furious over the contestants' entrance to the house

Fans aren't holding back their disappointment

It's been half a decade since we've last had our fix of ridiculous rows, tedious tasks and diary room meltdowns and we're all beyond chuffed Big Brother is finally back in our lives.

The long-awaited ITV reboot premiered tonight (8 October) and fans of the beloved reality show clearly couldn't wait to share their reactions to what's unfolded thus far with many taking issues with some pacing issues.

Big Brother viewers have been left well and truly furious over the contestants' entrance to the house and have taken to social media to share their qualms.

The show has clearly made some major changes given the fact the first launch show isn't live which is a pretty dramatic change to its tried and test format given that all previous Big Brother series' have aired live on TV with the housemates going in as viewers watch.

Now, we all know that the contestant's entrance is arguably one of the most important parts of the show as it gives both audiences and fellow contestants alike the first impression of all that's the come as the programme unfurls.

However, fans reckon the section is going way too fast for their liking and they've not held back whatsoever.

One X, formerly Twitter, user penned: "F*ck me Big Brother's shoving contestants in the same way Aldi workers scan your shopping. What’s the rush ITV?"

A second echoed: "Big Brother chucking those housemates in like they work at Aldi checkouts

"F*cking slow down!".

"I can’t keep up with how fast these housemates are going in!"

Kevin Lygo, the director of media and entertainment at ITV, has previously said that he’s aiming to recapture the essence of the show’s 'golden period' with the exciting new reboot.

The iconic reboot aired tonight (8 October) after five years.

"The key to Big Brother is to keep it like it was in its golden period – more interesting, intelligent, and upmarket than other reality shows," he said in a statement.

From Chantelle Houghton's undercover mission and Roxanne Pallett's Punch-gate, to the whole 'David is dead' drama and Nikki Grahame's 'Who is she?' rant - it's a fact that the show has created some of the most controversial and memorable moments of British TV history.

The director for reality commissioning at ITV2 and ITVX, Paul Mortimer, has said: "AJ and Will really are our perfect pairing as we prepare to reintroduce Big Brother to the next generation.

"With a genuine chemistry, both of them will bring effortless wit, charm and heaps of character to their roles and we're delighted to be working with them both again."

With dream duo Will Best and AJ Odudu hosting the revival - we certainly can’t wait for all that's to come.

Big Brother started tonight (8 October) at 9pm on ITV1, ITV2 and ITVX.
