Endemol Shine have confirmed that Celebrity Big Brother will be getting a brand new creative team, ahead of the shows return next month.
Paul Osborne has been appointed the Creative Director of the format, having previous credits such as Secret Millionaire and Celebrity Wife Swap in America. Osborne is also responsible for some of the key task decisions behind the first ever series of Big Brother in 2000 as well as being executive producer of Big Brother 2006.
He said: “Big Brother is part of my DNA, so returning to my roots was a no-brainer. This year all the celebrity housemates have a unique shared experience, they’ve all weathered their own media storms. Under Big Brother’s eye their stories will be once again firmly in the spotlight and in the national conversation. This summer’s Celebrity Big Brother, like the new eye, is set to be electric.”
Tamsin Dodgson is returning as executive editor after her work on Celebrity Big Brother in January. Executive producers for this years series are Anna Meadows, who has worked on Big Brother’s Little Brother in the past, and Jess Thomas who has worked on both Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother.
Lucy Crofts, Matt Green and Cally Haycox are the series editors. Celebrity Big Brother returns in August.
