BIG BROTHER SET FOR SUMMER RETURN


By: Bren

30th January 2011




Rumours are rife that Big Brother is set to return to our screens this summer  - On Channel Five.

According to reports in today's News of the World  bosses at Endemol - which owns the rights to the series - are finalising a deal with the channel to revive the show after it was dropped by Channel 4 in 2010.

Channel Five (now owned by Richard Desmond) originally expressed an interest in the show last year but negotiations fell through as the price wanted by Endemol was considered too high.

Reports suggest that Desmond is diappointed with the progress of Five so far and wants the show to prop up flagging viewing figures.   Endemol who have had no success trying to sell the formula elsewhere are now prepared to accept a reduced fee.

We'll see if this comes true, I did predict this a long while ago

will take my post down about this didn't see this here before i posted

report from news of the world

Big brother will be back on tv this summer on C5
after no one else wanted it .
the former ratings smash hit  ran for 11 series on c4
before the station dropped it last year.

viewing figures had plummeted from a high of 10 mill
in 2002 when the late Jade goody was a housemate
 to under 3 mill.
Now endermol which owns the bb franchise, is finalising
a cut price  deal with  C5.

An insider said
Nothing has been signed yet but C5 needs
bb to prop up its schedules znd they feel pleased with the price

I KNOW PEOPLE MOAN ABOUT THIS SHOW , AND SOMETIMES I DID TO BUT
YES , WE MIGHT HAVE THIS SHOW BACK .

ALTHOUGH I CAN'T SEE IT BEING A NORMAL SHOW AS IT TAKES MONTHS GO THROUGH THE AUDITIONS .

 we might get a celeb show although i am not keen on those ones i will put up with it just to get bb back to normal.

heres hoping
