There is more good news for Big Brother fans with confirmation the Seven Network has commissioned a Celebrity version of the reality format.

A report in the Daily Telegraph confirms casting for Big Brother VIP is commencing now with the series set to air on Seven later this year

While only one season of Celebrity Big Brother has aired in Australia (2002), the format has been far more successful in the UK where it has run for 22 seasons

Seven programming boss Angus Ross confirmed the celebrity series was on its way telling News Corp.

“With anticipation for the new season building, the time is right to commission Big Brother VIP,”

“The celebrity format is a proven success around the world. It was a hit here in Australia almost two decades ago and we’re looking forward to introducing a whole new generation of celebrities to Big Brother. Let the game begin.”

Endemol Shine Australia chief executive Peter Neman added.

“Across last year’s season and the upcoming 2021 season, over 40 everyday housemates have had a chance to play Big Brother’s game,”

“We now welcome a host of celebrities to a brand-new house, seal them off from society and see who can survive the twists, turns and surprises that Big Brother has waiting inside. Who will win? Australia will decide.”
