Big Brother Axed by Channel 5

Today Channel 5 released a statement confirming that neither Big Brother nor Celebrity Big Brother will be returning after the current civilian series (which starts tonight) ends.


The statement read: "The forthcoming series of Big Brother will be the last - of either celebrity or civilian versions - on Channel 5. We’d like to thank Endemol and all of the production team who have worked tirelessly to make the show a success.


We’d also like to thank our brilliant presenters - Emma on Big Brother and Rylan from Bit on the Side - for their consummate professionalism, Marcus, the voice of Big Brother and all of the housemates who have created so many memorable moments.
