More signs that Big Brother is heading into another long sabbatical today, with reports Dreamworld is dismantling its BB house on the Gold Coast.
It’s no secret the show is out for this year, with Celebrity Apprentice set for a return.
Nine’s Andrew Backwell tells News Corp: “We have no plans to bring it back at this stage, it is however still in consideration so we are certainly not ruling it out.
“We also believe it would work brilliantly on GO! but we need to work through a business case to see if the investment was viable.”
But finding the right balance for an expensive show on GO! remains problematic.
Nine’s contract with the franchise expires in 2016 while Producer Alex Mavroidakis has joined ITV to oversee I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!
The Dreamworld map currently indicates the BB Studios as “Closed.” It has previously been available for private functions.
But never say never. Big Brother aired on TEN from 2001 – 2008 before being revived in 2012 for three seasons on Nine.
Nine has already confirmed the return of Celebrity Apprentice, The Farmer Wants a Wife and Australia’s Got Talent.
In this age of stripped reality shows underpinned by social media, Big Brother could easily return at some point down the track, including a return to its original home on TEN.
