The Big Brother house – a place of on-air sex, ill-advised comments and pent-up frustrations – is being torn down.
Yes, after 16 years at Elstree Studios (the house was located in Bow, London for the first two series), the BB house is in a state of demolition, with aerial pictures from the site showing a team pulling the ground-breaking reality TV show to the ground.
It comes after Channel 5 confirmed that the latest series of Big Brother would be its last on the network. No other broadcaster has picked it up at the time of writing.
Former host Davina McCall previously offered her thoughts on a comeback, telling Digital Spy that she thinks the show may need three or four years off, and then it should come back in a new, possibly online, format.
Emma Willis, who took over from Davina, recently admitted that the show’s bosses have had conversations with various people about bringing it back.
Meanwhile, Bit on the Side host Rylan Clark-Neal is already really, REALLY missing it – so much so that he’s trying his hardest to bring it back in some way, shape or form.
“My brain just doesn’t understand that it’s not coming back,” he told Mail Online.
“To me, I can’t understand that I have presented it for the last time.
“It’s going to be majorly missed. And trust me, I am doing everything I can do in my power to get it back.”
