Housemates Discuss The Future Of Big Brother

Big Brother Eye Logo

Because the Big Brother format comes to an end for good (on Channel 4) within a matter of days, talk about the show's future is a hot topic with fans. And the housemates joined-in with the discussion and speculation tonight.

During a late-night conversation in the garden, Brian opined that if another TV channel licences the show from the programme-maker Endemol, they will likely bring it back in 2011 rather than rest it for a year.

This prompted Victor to suggest that Daily Express and Daily Star owner Richard Desmond has already bought the show, which would see it move to Channel Five. For the media mogul purchased the TV channel in July for £103.5 million, beating bids from Channel 4 and Endemol.

"I think whoever takes it will ruin it anyway," said Chantelle, while Brian replied: "I doubt they'll bring Davina (McCall) or George (Lamb); I think they'll change it completely".

The former trolley dolly then wondered if the show would work without long-term host Davina fronting it, but Nick and Vic were adamant that it would, the former saying that the contestants make the show, not the presenter.

Going back to Victor's comment about Channel Five, in fact nothing has been agreed yet.

Since the reports a couple of weeks ago that Desmond himself was in talks with Endemol to take Big Brother to Five, the channel has failed to comment on the possibility of a deal going ahead.

Could it be a case of 'no news is good news' for BB fans?
