Davina McCall: 'Keep The Celebrity Version Going'
Long-time BB host Davina McCall has backed calls for Celebrity
Big Brother to continue in the future.
CCB7 is the last-ever 'celebrity' version of the show, as
the Big Brother format comes to an end in the UK this summer.
This is because Channel 4's agreement with programme-maker
Endemol finishes after Big Brother 11, and as yet, no other
broadcaster has come forward to rescue the show.
However, in light of the current series of Celebrity BB,
which has been a great success, various celebrities and even
some critics have suggested that perhaps Channel 4 should
consider licensing (just) the celebrity version of the show
and keeping it going.
Having followed the show for 10 years, here at Big Brother
Online we wholeheartedly agree, and feel that although some
people say the summer version has run its course,
the celeb version definitely has legs.
We say that because Reality TV fans love watching ITV's 'I'm
A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' because it's not too long;
they can get into it, enjoy it for a few weeks and move-on
to watch something else.
Conversely, it's getting harder and harder for the show's
producers to sustain the momentum of a main summer series
of Big Brother, and it can drag.
If you recall, Big Brother UK originally started-out being
9 weeks long and grew from there, but we've been saying for
ages that 13 weeks is just too long. The current celebrity
version of the show lasts for 4 weeks.
Davina McCall, who has hosted the show since it began in
the year 2000, commented on 'This Morning': "I think
Celebrity Big Brother has got legs and I think it would sit
comfortably on another channel and do quite well. But I don't
know whether that would be in a couple of years or... who
knows what will happen?"
The bubbly 42-year-old also suggested that she would follow
the show to another TV channel, depending how it gets produced
We sincerely hope 'the powers-that-be' in TV Land give the
idea some serious consideration, as although it would be great
for the show to go out on a high, it would be crazy to let
something that the public still want to watch come to a premature
