It’s already history in Oz, but could the UK version of Big Brother be next to go?
Maybe after 2010, which would allow for two more seasons.
The Sun newspaper reports a programme boss revealed next year’s BB “will be the LAST.”
But in a country fascinated by tabloid journalism, celebrity, pop culture and BB, they also quote Commissioning Editor Angela Jain saying: “We’re contracted to do one more Big Brother after this one.”
So while two more seasons are assured, who’s to say a resurgence for the show might secure its future?
In the UK the show is also programmed differently to Australia, with premium shows including live evictions on Channel 4, and offshoot versions such as Big Mouth on E4. Host Davina McCall will also take over Big Mouth, now slashed from four nights to just one — on Friday nights straight after the eviction.
The next season is due in September.
