Celebrity Big Brother 2011

Celebrity Big Brother WILL be back in 2011!

The Daily Star has revealed that Channel 4 bosses have confirmed that the Celebrity version of Big Brother will air in January 2011.

There had of course been speculation that the show wouldn’t go ahead next year, given that that main Big Brother show has now ended, however, the paper states that the 2011 edition will be the last one.

A Channel 4 insider told the paper,

“Channel 4 has been really pleased with the ratings and amount of coverage for this year’s Big Brother and Ultimate Big Brother…

“So they don’t want to let it go just yet.

“It will probably look a bit strange after everyone thought it was the last we’d see of it on Channel 4, but it will be worth it financially for them to have one final run.”

The final series of CBB is expected to last three weeks, and it seems that the show’s bosses are “planning to splash out on high-profile celebs.”

The insider added, “The celebrity version always comes up trumps in the ratings.

“And there’s always a lot more drama because they all have big egos.”
