Big Brother Has Officially Been AXED By Channel 5

But this might not be the end...

After this year's series of Celebrity Big Brother was one of the most controversial ever, Channel 5 have now made a big announcement about the future of the show.

Their statement read: 'The forthcoming series of Big Brother will be the last - of either celebrity or civilian versions - on Channel 5. 

We’d like to thank Endemol and all of the production team who have worked tirelessly to make the show a success.

We’d also like to thank our brilliant presenters - Emma on Big Brother and Rylan from Bit on the Side - for their consummate professionalism, Marcus, the voice of Big Brother and all of the housemates who have created so many memorable moments.

Most importantly, we’d like to thank fans of the show for their support over the last seven years.'

The show has been on Channel 5 since 2011, when the broadcaster took over the show from Channel 4. However, all may not be lost for fans of Big Brother as statements from presenter Rylan Clark-Neal and production company Endemol suggest that the show could well be back on UK screens sometime soon.
