Big Brother will be following the theme of the General Election as the new series kicks off – by letting the public have their say in who goes into the House.
An insider told The Sun: “Big Brother bosses are really running with the election fever of the country this year and mocking up housemates as political party leaders.
Like a real-life politician the hopeful housemates will have to convince the public to vote for them with a convincing speech. It will all be filmed live so they will be under pressure not to fluff up their speeches. It will be an exciting twist to the opening night shenanigans.”
The potential Housemates will have to gather up support and state their cases as to why they should be entering the House to take part in the series.
Channel 5 have said that viewers will have to tune in next week to see what happens. Big Brother has promised to offer an alternative look at the people of Britain this year – promising to deliver a variety of personalities.
Big Brother kicks off on Monday night at 8:30pm on Channel 5.
