Davina Comes To Terms With BB's Demise
Big Brother UK host Davina McCall claims that she has now
got over the fact that the show will be ending this year,
but has re-iterated that she was bowled-over by the news.
When Channel 4 announced last summer that they wouldn't be
renewing their deal with programme-makers Endemol to broadcast
the show after 2010, the 42-year-old was gutted.
However, talking to New magazine about the demise of the
show, Davina said recently: "I was sad but I've done
my grieving. I've had months to chew it over and think about
life after Big Brother. It's nice that they gave us a year's
Davina also commented on the flak that the show has received
over the years, suggesting it's amazing the format lasted
so long (11 main series, including the forthcoming one) given
all the criticism it's had.
But there are signs that the shouty brunette hasn't fully
come to terms with the fact that the show will end for good
in September, as she recently told Stylist magazine: "I
feel hugely nostalgic. I've got my head around it but I was
flabbergasted when they told me, because I know they still
make a lot of money when it's on".
"I've got no idea why Big Brother became an enfant terrible
of TV, because it's a brilliantly, skilfully-put-together
piece of entertainment, and the people who criticise it haven't
really watched it."
As well as being the well-paid and popular host of Big Brother
since it began in 2000, Davina has tried other things over
the years, such her own BBC1 chat show and a Saturday night
show called 'He's Having a Baby'. However, both were badly
received by audiences and critics.
Indeed, after ten years presenting Big Brother, Davina has
become synonymous with the show and it will undoubtedly be
hard for her to match the success she's had with it and move-on
to something else.
A bit previous maybe, but we wish Davina luck with her future
career, and genuinely hope that she doesn't disappear and
resign herself to motherhood (pretty unlikely, given how loud
she is! - Ed).
