Celebrity Big Brother will follow the civilian edition of Big Brother this summer – with Rylan confirming the two individual series.
It has been rumoured that both editions of the reality format would be merged this summer to create a “mega series” and see both celebrity and civilian Housemates go head to head to win.
However, Rylan Clark-Neal has confirmed that there will be two separate series airing this summer. Speaking to Digital Spy he said: “There’s still going to be a Big Brother in the summer and there’s still going to be a Celebrity Big Brother.
“This is the first year I’m out of the loop because I have to be. Be prepared for the unexpected, and I can say that more for this than any other series of Big Brother.
Rylan also commented on the rumours of a mega series, saying “I mean, I’d love it, but when I say celebrities, I don’t think we’re talking A-listers. I don’t think we’re talking massive but I do like the concept of mixing it up. But for us, it’s a brand new show this year.”
The BOTS host also teased that things would be released very soon. “Everything’s coming very soon. The new look, new treatment, new feel. It’s a brand new show this year.
“Which is scary for me and Emma, scary for the production team, and very scary for the housemates. It feels like we’re starting a new school. It’s like going to big school.”
Big Brother returns later next month.
