Davina McCall: "Big Brother Will Probably Be Back"

Big Brother UK Host Davina McCall Thinks BB Will Be Back

Everyone's favourite 'shouty' TV host Davina McCall, who's fronted every series of Big Brother UK since the beginning, has said that she thinks the show will be back at some point in the future.

Last year, it was announced that the format had been cancelled in the UK, and that January's Celebrity Big Brother 7 and this summer's Big Brother 11 would be the last-ever series.

But Davina, 42, told the Daily Star Sunday: "I really don't feel like this is the last we see of Big Brother. If you ask me, it will be back in the next five years".

The Mum-of-three, who was pregnant during Big Brother 3 and famously wore a 'Big Mutha' top at the evictions, re-iterated that although the show makes money for Channel 4, it also creates headaches for them and requires a lot of manpower to keep it on air for three months continuously.

"If it does come back, then as long as it was done right, I would want to present it again," said Davina, adding: "It's my little baby and I can't imagine watching anyone else presenting it".

You get the feeling that even if the well-paid presenter had to take a large pay cut to take BB to another channel, she would want to be involved. Indeed, Davina has already hinted that she'll be really upset when it's all over in September.

Akin with Davina, Big Brother big cheese and Endemol top bod Phil Edgar Jones recently suggested that the show could return in the future too. There have also been calls to keep (just) the short-format Celebrity version going, after the success of January's series which was won by Alex Reid.

Big Brother 11 2010, the current and last series of BBUK, is getting decent viewing figures given that the World Cup is on at the moment and that (plus the spin-off shows) always take a huge percentage of the available viewing audience.
