Channel 5 ‘planning a year without Big Brother’

Channel 5 controller Ben Frow has today said he is planning “for a year without Big Brother”, with the broadcaster’s contract to air the show due to run out at the end of this year.

The statement however falls short of official confirmation that it will be cancelled – he clarified he would “never say never” to recommissioning it – Frow has repeatedly said he would prefer to focus on other projects as he attempts to reposition his station with more upmarket programmes.

Big Blagger reached out to Channel 5, who again re-iterated that there is no further update on the contract negotiations, and that those negotiations are still on-going.

One week into the present series, Celebrity Big Brother has been as controversial as ever with more than 1,000 viewers complaining to Ofcom when Rodrigo Alves used the N-word twice during a drunken conversation on his first night in the house.

Meanwhile, Channel 5 today announced the first few details of the new civilian series of the show – which is due to launch in the middle of September.
