Big Brother Could Continue For Years, Says Boss
Big Brother UK host Davina McCall was quoted in the press
recently as having said that the show has two years left,
meaning Big Brother 11 in 2010 would be the final series.
However, the 41-year-old has since done a u-turn and claimed
that she was misquoted.
Davina, who has fronted the highly-popular reality TV show
since the beginning, has now claimed she was referring-to
the fact that the format is licensed to Channel 4 until next
"I would never say it's over; thank God my producers
know me well enough. It could have been hugely damaging to
my career," said the bubbly host. Davina is hoping for
good ratings this summer, mainly so that her contract is renewed
next year. There's nothing like looking after your own interests!
However, it's a given that the show will be back and Davina
will get her whopping pay cheque once again, as we published
article back in December 2006 saying that the show would run
until at least 2010, when the reputed £180 million licensing
deal with Endemol ends.
And even when that current deal runs-out, if the public still
want to watch the show it will likely be re-licensed by Channel
4 to stop another TV channel buying it. Indeed, Endemol's
creative director Phil Edgar-Jones said recently that Big
Brother would continue in the UK as long as it pulled in around
three million viewers.
The Scottish producer sees no reason why the show, now in
it's 10th season, can't run for another ten years, adding,
"It is still one of Channel 4's best performing programmes
and fans love it. We manage to make it different every year,
so it stays fresh".
"There will definitely be a series next year,"
concluded the BB big cheese.
