I loved my time on Big Brother, but when I was thinking I understood the impact he had on my mental health

Big brother or big man is struggling? It's the end of the era as the final episode of Channel 5 tonight, but I dare say … maybe it's a good thing.

All good things have come to an end, right? Or do all good things become bad at the end?

Big Brother, in my day, was the epitome of brilliant television. It was real, raw and passionate.

Who can forget our dear Jade Goodi how she thinks East Anglia was the other country together? Or a nasty Nick and his impeccable stories and lies? Or Nikki and her "who is she" is the moment? And, of course, mine. I proudly brought in, "you're better known little girl" and "basic meal for a basic bitch" into everyday language.

There were many great iconic moments, which makes me so sad to say that I think he lost that edge.

Now, everything we see is a bunch of desperados who want to be famous. I'm tired of seeing the ego, it's really not what Big Brother should be about. It should be about normal people who live in their best life.

And since conversations and mental health concerns have passed over the years, the format is tired.

I fought there mentally, and for some better phrase for capture, I definitely went on my "personal journey".

I remember worst hearing a bunch of singing "take Aislein". My goodness was terrible! I honestly think I cried eight hours straight.

I had a four-hour therapy in the living room, which ended up with my big brother, asking me what kind of advice I was giving, what I answered with the wise and miraculous wisdom of Dizzee Rascal, "fixing the look sharply".

One more time I fought when I had to break someone's dream and throw them out at my own decision. My God who killed me close emotional and mental. I'm still fighting today, to be honest.

Big brother's house is a fragile place in which you are placed. I'm really worried about those houses that are not as psychologically strong as I am, and I'm not ready for rejection because there's a lot of that.

I will never forget when I first experienced my first panic attack. It was the last day and I asked my big brother to let me stay at home forever. The thought to leave this safe surroundings and to be in a big, bad, real world was too much for me.

I think the problem of the show is that the public evaluates its character and popularity, which is in fact a dangerous game that you will put in if you are not mentally prepared.

I often advised competitors of the former brother who turned to me for advice. Frankly, I was supposed to be on the payroll the amount of people I helped.

I simply think that we have to be more realistic with the effect that a person might have on someone's mental health. Maybe it will be a good thing for a while to think about being a good thing for the show.

It's such a roller. One minute you're at the top of the world and the next minute – BOOM – right back to earth and nobody wants to know. It can be a hard swallowing pill and enough for a healthy man to lose the sense of self-esteem and clarity of the mind, as we have seen with many competitors.

I am so happy about mental health awareness so openly. When I was growing up, it looked like shameful. I have always said that mental health and physical health are two sides of the same coin and that both have to deal with the same as others. This is true for homes.

Over the years I was so fond of my big brother and I liked to write my column about it. Maybe it could come back with a restart, but for now it's time for the house to close the door.

Metro.co.uk contacted Big Brother for comment.
