Big Brother 4 Start Date Confirmed

Channel 4 has now confirmed the start date for the new 9-week series of this summer's sure-fire TV 'hit', Big Brother 4.

It was originally speculated that this next series would go ahead a week earlier than last year but in fact, it will start in the same week as BB3, on Friday the 23rd of May 2003.

As with BB2, a pregnant Davina McCall is back as the face of Big Brother UK and fans can see the 12 fresh contestants enter the BB House for the first time live on Channel 4 at 8.30pm.

On their initial walk towards that famous stairway, all the contestants will be thoroughly frisked by the Security 'chimps, so expect some OTT 'grunting' as they check for hidden devices and make the most of their own 15 minutes of fame!

There'll also be another C4 show later on aunch night, when Davina will guide us through the newbie housemates' first few hours together.

Other coverage? The familiar Geordie tones of Marcus Bentley will narrate the usual 30-minute 'highlight' shows each weekday evening on Channel 4, re-capping on the previous days events.

Dermot O'Leary's excellent fanzine show, 'Big Brother's Little Brother', has been moved from digital channel e4 to mainstream Channel 4 for this series. Dermot will present his 30-minute show at teatime Monday to Friday, with an extended show on Sundays.

It goes without saying that Davina will host all the Friday night 'eviction' shows, which are once again broadcast in two parts - before and after eviction. In the latter show, the unlucky housemate given the 'boot by fans gets interrogated for 'the full SP' by Davina.

Saturday night viewing will bring a live Task show on Channel 4. Unlike last year however, the housemates will be competing for luxuries, not their food budget. The Main weekly task will take place mid-week.

Aside from an extended BBLB, Sunday's schedule will see an hour-long evening show during which the BB psychology boffins offer comment on all the week's goings-on.

Finally, real fans will be pleased to hear that the absolutely compelling live streaming will be back on digital channel e4 this summer, broadcast live 'around the clock'. Joining this streamed coverage will be a chance to see repeats of the BBLB show each night and a show called 'Nominations Uncut'.

This new show goes out on Tuesday evenings and offers fans a chance to see the full reasons behind the housemates' nominations for that week. You wouldn't normally get to see this until Wednesday's 'highlight' show on Channel 4 and even then, the reasons are cut-down.

Phew-ee! Looks like the TV coverage for Big Brother 4 is 7 days a week, almost 24/7 if you want it to be... Hmm, do you think that'll be enough?

So, Friday the 23rd of May. Channel 4. 8.30pm. Be there or, um, be a boring old fart. Or something!
