Big Brother's Bit On The Side is a complete mess

First, the series is called "Big Brother's Bit On The Side", not "Big Brother's Bitty On The Side".
Second, they've started the series in 2011. With one season per year, we're now in season 5, not 12. The episode list is probably best treated with a complete removal and redo seeing how there's too much wrong with it for me to even begin listing all the errors.

S11 looks like it may be another series entirely.

Everything else should be compliant now.

I did some more research, and it seems like they have the sideshow with the same name for Big Brother (UK) and Celebrity Big Brother (UK). I can see arguments for both splitting those (putting us in season 12) or for doing it per year as it is on the Channel 5 website (putting us in season 5).

Sorry for not noticing that earlier. :(

Yeah, but we effectively had a mixture of both, which logically can't be correct.

I completely agree with that. When I looked at it this morning, I went o.O. :P

From what I can tell, the current season 11 should go into year/season 4 too—they renamed it for a bit for some reason:

> During Big Brother 14, the Saturday show was renamed Big Brother's Bit on the Psych with a focus on psychological analysis of the housemates, and was presented by Clark with co-hosts Iain Lee and Luisa Zissman.

...At least it's not NatGeo. ;)

This series is a complete fail for my Sickrage database as it does not recognize season 7 as the current series for 2017. Season 7 is the last series and dated as June 2017. Any episodes I have are dated in June 2017 but they are titled as S18E**
Since this series is a complete MESS for the latest season, I have added another season listed as Season 18, which is actually a duplicate of season 7 but it works so much better and this change aligns with the current Big Brother UK 2017 series as it is also Season 18.
If the series of Big Brother's Bit On The Side stays true to the current number system, next season will be numbered as Season 19 and all be in complete alignment and it will be correct.
