Davina and Rylan to front Big Brother show for E4

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

I guess Shine (formerly Endemol) hols all the rights to all of the series.

So there’s nothing stopping them showing the C5 series. They would kind of have to as some of the C5 Celebrity series have gone down in recent Big Brother history.

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.

Actually think it's quite refreshing to show episodes, most of which have never been shown again on television since the initial airing. Indeed I think the only episode ever repeated (other than the next day repeats of course) is the Nasty Nick episode which I think was shown on More4 during C4's 25th Birthday.

I wonder if this is them testing the waters for a proper Channel 4 revival next year? There were whispers around January that they were supposedly wanting to revive CBB anyway.

Sounds like a easy and cheap schedule filler at time of a pandemic more than anything else, tbqh.

They confirmed they aren’t reviving it.

I quite like seeing full episodes rather than just compilations of clips. Likely the same clips we've seen countless times before as well. Even the episodes with the memorable moments will have lots of interesting bits that won't have been seen since broadcast.

I presume CBB1 and 2 will be out of it though, seeing as a while back when Channel 4 did a documentry on past celebrity series they couldn't show any footage of Jack Dee or Les Dennis, unless they've persuaded them to allow it, though I imagine that's doubtful, especially in Les's case (I think for later series they made the celebs sign away their right to block footage), so any full episodes of those series will be out of bounds seeing as it would be hard to edit them out of it (especially as Jack Dee was the winner of CBB1).

E4 repeated some of the first series in 2001, and some of the "Big Brother Reveals More" weekend compilation shows from series 2 in 2002. But apart from that, I don't think any individual episodes have been repeated.

I seem to remember E4 repeating the entire Pete Burns/George Galloway series of CBB. They started airing it a few nights/weeks after the final and it aired every night for a month which is kind of unthinkable for a reality show now but just shows how incredibly popular the series was at the time.

This is great news. Really hope they choose some strong and varied episodes from different series. Presumably Davina will introduce C4 episodes whilst Rylan will do the C5 ones? It's a shame it won't be Emma - I feel she always kept a level of gravitas to the Channel 5 version even as it descended into tabloid desperate trash.

And no matter what Channel 4 have said recently about having no plans to revive the show, if these do well there's no way they won't start seriously considering it. And wouldn't Big Brother be a perfect format to revive if social distancing measures continue indefinitely? Launch and evictions would need re-thinking, as would the safety considerations for crew behind the scenes, but as all housemates would effectively be self isolating inside one household the main series could run pretty much as it used to.

I thought I'd never read of 'gravitas' in the same sentence as Big Brother.
Please no more...

[irony] Yeah... cheap archive footage with a newly recorded top and tail doing alright on your dwindling digital channel totally warrants employing dozens upon dozens of freelancers and committing hours upon hours of air time for weeks on end to a programme that is a lot more costly to produce than it looks.

Do the rights go all the way back to Series 1?

An obvious show is the one where they rumbled Nasty Nick
