Emma Willis has said that the makers of Big Brother are ‘in talks’ with other networks, after credits rolled on the reality show for the last time this week.

Channel 5 announced its plans to axe the show over the summer, confirming that the series that has just wrapped would be the last.

But Willis, who hosts the Big Brother live shows, has now hinted that it could soon be back in some other form.

In an interview on This Morning today, host Phillip Schofield tried to get the latest on whether we’d be seeing the show again, asking: “Is it being picked up by another network? There was talk of Netflix…”

Willis replied: “Do you know what, I don’t know. That’s hand on my heart, 100% I don’t know. I have asked and they’ve been like, ‘We’re talking to people!’


“People are very non-committal at the moment, people don’t know.”

However, if it did return, it sounds like Willis would be happy to be on board.

“If it happened – I’m one of those people that, in a perfect world it would be amazing but until we get there, nobody knows,” she said.

?Nobody knows who’s going to make it – do they want new presenters? Are they going to want to scrap it and start again? Who knows. And depending on what changes are made on whether I was there or not. We’ll wait and see.”

Willis, who took over presenting duties from former winner Brian Dowling, helmed five series of the show on Channel 5.

She fought back tears while winding up the final show on Monday night.
