It’s been on our TV screens for a massive 16 years so it’s no surprise Big Brother bosses want to give the show a shake up and by the looks of it that’s exactly what they are planning.
Reports suggest Channel 5 are looking to increase viewing figures by entering pairs and couples into the house. A spokesperson for Channel 5 said, “We're on the lookout for outgoing pairs with strong opinions and stand out personalities from across the UK."
Despite the hint, no further information has been released therefore we are unaware if it means 2017’s housemates will be entering, leaving and winning as pairs or simply just entering together.
What do you think of the twist?
Meanwhile rumours are heating up for the latest series of the celebrity addition of the show.
The popular show is set for an explosive return in January and to mark the 20th anniversary series, Big Brother is planning on bringing former housemates back into the house.
The new series is reportedly going to be called ‘Gold Stars vs New Stars’ and feature some of the biggest and best returning Big Brother housemates.
