Live feed back ? or not ?
Big Brother 2013 bosses have yet to decide whether or not the show’s live feed will make a comeback, we can exclusively reveal.
Channel 5 ditched the 24/7 live stream from the house when it took over the show back in 2011, much to the outrage of fans.
The UK series remains the only format not to offer such streams, with producers previously blaming the decision on the cost.
However, with a new team now working on the show, could a change be in store?
Already this year we’ve seen Emma Willis appointed as the new presenter, while the housemates are set to be more ‘normal’ than the usual types we’ve come to expect over the past two years.
A representative for Channel 5 told us that there was yet no official confirmation on how much live feed would feature in the summer series.
They said: “The 2013 series is still in development and no decisions have been made about its final format at the moment.”
Last year saw C5 at least begin to offer some live streaming from the house on digital channel 5*, which had up to a million viewers tuned in.
Big Brother narrator Marcus Bentley previously suggested that there would be more live feed on offer for the fourteenth series, saying: “Last year Channel 5 broadcast streaming after evictions these gained phenomenal viewing figures and I would imagine Channel 5 would like to build on that success.”
Big Brother 2013 will start on Channel 5 in June.
