Over the last few years, Big Brother has tried and tested a whole load of surprise twists to jazz up the reality show, however, their latest plans are the most surprising of all, according to new reports.
Producers are apparently planning an all-female series of the celebrity version of the show, with Channel 5 wanting to mark the 100 year anniversary of when women won the right to vote.
Speaking to The Sun, a source explained: “Channel 5 wants to make a real splash as part of their women’s vote celebrations.
“They are keen to cast opinionated women like Germaine Greer over no-mark reality TV girls who look good but have little to say or bring to the conversation.
“Bosses are expecting cat fights galore, plenty of tension and clashing personalities.”
The decision comes shortly after Peter Salmon, Endemol’s producer, vowed to mix-up the show’s format following a decline in ratings.
He said at the time: “Big Brother has got to last. You have to roll your sleeves up and renew it for a different generation.
“It is having a tougher competitive time in the UK but it’s huge around the world.
“Love Island has been sensational. If Big Brother is not on top form, we have to keep changing it.”
The women only series of the show will air on Channel 5 in January 2018 if all goes to plan, and we can’t be the only ones to be slightly relieved that this is one season that near enough guarantees no showmances.
