Seven has now confirmed Big Brother will commence on Monday April 26 (presumably at 7:30pm and no doubt with a DWTS finale the night before).
This is also the end of an Anzac long weekend (Updated: Qld, WA, SA), which is usually well positioned for a big crowd.
This season has been filmed in advance, except for a live finale in which viewers can choose the winner. It’s also the final season in the current North Manly facility. Big Brother VIP will film at a new site, yet to be announced.
