Big Brother Cancelled
The next series will be the last…
Wednesday, August 26, 2009 - 12:50
Big Brother has been dropped by Channel 4 after ratings for this series fell dramatically.
The next series in 2010 will be the last to be shown by the broadcaster- although BB could be picked up by another channel.
The show has slumped to an average of below 2 million viewers an episode. Big Brother launched in 2000 and viewing figures peaked at 8 million.
It made stars of Jade Goody and Chantelle Houghton as well as courting controversy with race rows and sexual behaviour.
The head of Channel 4 Julian Bellamy said: “Big Brother has been our most influential and popular programme over the last decade.
“Big Brother will leave a huge hole and filling it will involve the most fundamental creative overhaul in our history. We have 18 months to transform the schedule."
