Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother are officially ending

The Big Brother Eye. EMBARGO 4th September

Channel 5 has confirmed that it will no longer broadcast Big Brother or its celebrity equivalent, Celebrity Big Brother, after the end of the new series of Big Brother, which starts tonight (14 September).

Endemol Shine said: "While disappointed not to reach an agreement with Channel 5, the decision opens up a new chapter and we are excited about future possibilities for Big Brother in the United Kingdom".

"The forthcoming series of Big Brother will be the last - of either celebrity or civilian versions - on Channel 5".

The announcement follows the conclusion of the recent series of Celebrity Big Brother, which was beset with controversy from the start.

Channel 5 said in a statement: "After a further incident, Rodrigo has been removed from the Big Brother House and will not be returning".

It noted that the latest version of Celebrity Big Brother, which featured Cheers star Kirstie Alley, was C5's highest rating show of the year, grew its audience by 17% year-on-year and tripled the network's slot average for 16-24 year olds. We'd like to thank Endemol and all of the production team who have worked tirelessly to make the show a success.

Hurricane Florence has weakened but will still be devastating
The Category 1 storm is expected to move further across parts of North Carolina and South Carolina Friday and Saturday . The United States Geological Survey recorded flood water 10.01 feet deep in the town of New Bern in North Carolina.

Channel 5 boss, Ben Frow, indicated in August this year that the future of the series with the broadcaster was uncertain, saying that he "planned for a year" without the series, after it swapped channels in 2011.

By the time the show wraps up later this year, 19 civilian, 22 celebrity series, one "Ultimate", one "Teen", one "Celebrity Hijack" and one "Panto" series will have aired.

Accents of orange and blue are all that break up an otherwise dreary colour scheme of grey on grey, while ornaments in the room ring home the housemates' reality - that they are merely pawns in Big Brother's game - with chess pieces situated on the shelves. "Whilst disappointed not to reach an agreement with Channel 5 the decision opens up a new chapter and we are excited about future possibilities for Big Brother in the United Kingdom".

Taking inspiration from the iconic 1914 Lord Kitchener Wants You advertisement by Alfred Leete, a large mural on the wall reads "Big Brother Needs You", as well as "All dressed up and nowhere to go".

In a message on Twitter, he said hoped that "one day Big Brother will return" adding "my focus now, as with the rest of the team is to make our last series the best yet".

Speaking in a video clip shared on the Big Brother Twitter page, she began: "Yay!"
