Davina and Rylan to front Big Brother show for E4

"Best Shows" to air this year marking 20 years of BB

This is somewhat unexpected, and it seems despite stating as recently as a couple of weeks ago they've no interest in reviving Big Brother C4 at least see some value in marking 20 years of it with a special series (of repeats by the sounds of it) on E4.



Davina: “I lived and breathed Big Brother for 11 years. Not one week goes by when I don’t quote it in some form. It made me laugh, it made me cry and taught me to never judge a book by its cover. I love the show and can’t wait to share it with a whole new audience."

Rylan: “I’m so excited to be bringing Big Brother back to our lives. There will be laughs, tears and drama, but most of all we get to relive some of Big Brother’s greatest episodes.”
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

And 37 year old me is depressed that BBUK may be older than you are. Laughing

Great, but who is this aimed at? It's interesting they're chucking it out on E4. "Hey kids, forget love island here's some people arguing over chickpeas 20yrs ago. If you like this hit us up on our socials and we'll reboot it cos we desperately need a love island."

I doubt with Channel 4's financial issues, they could afford Big Brother on E4.

Isn't one of E4's biggest problems of late is the demos watching are older than the demos in theory they should be targetting, so let's just say it's aimed at the young at heart. For once they're probably targetting the people who largely do watch their channel, and strongly associate Big Brother with the early days of E4, rather than trying to get the viewers they should desire.

I would disagree with this take on the demographic of Big Brother especially the celebrity version, quite recently a lot of moments from CBB have been shared by a younger demographic as memes on Instagram & Tiktok, have seen a lot of this, much more than compared to Love Island.

E4 have confirmed the format will be in the style of Hollyoaks Favourites at the moment. A new intro by either Rylan or Davina edited into the start and followed by a full episode.

Oh wow, now that is the ultimate in low cost TV, I assumed it would be a best-of archive show. I know C4 have been looking at doing this with a number of their old comedies, i.e. top and tailing it with newly filmed interview with cast, but never thought they'd do it with Big Brother! Desperate times I suppose.

They say 'the shows 20 year history' but are they really gonna include clips from the C5 series?

In fairness, some of the most talked about and best Celebrity BB moments happened when the show was on Channel 5.
