The first tidbits of news about this years edition of Big Brother have been revealed by Channel 5. The brand new series – which will be the nineteenth edition of the original format – is set to return to its roots.
Channel 5 confirmed that the show will return to our screens between September 8th and September 14th, with a date to be revealed next week.
“The original social experiment, featuring housemates from all walks of life entering a new-look Big Brother House” with a “whole new feel”. Following our meeting with the execs before the launch of Celebrity Big Brother, Paul Osborne confirmed that Big Brother would have a completely different feel to the series in recent years. There will also be a very distinct difference between the current run of Celebrity Big Brother and the upcoming Big Brother.
Currently, Channel 5’s schedules show a large gap on Friday 14th September, with nothing scheduled to air on the channel between 9pm and 12am – enough space for a two hour launch show and the first edition of Bit on the Side, which will be returning on weeknights on Channel 5.
Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm with the first eviction.
