Housemates, Get Ready: There’s a Celebrity Version of Big Brother Coming in 2021
Big Brother‘s game keeps getting bigger!
We haven’t even seen Channel 7’s second iteration of the hit TV series yet, however, the network has already announced another special event series — Big Brother VIP. Yup, we’re getting a celeb edition.
Hosted by Sonia Kruger, VIP will feature some of Australia’s best-known celebrities, removed from the world they know and locked away in an all-new Big Brother house.
Of course, as we start to guess who might be put inside (Home and Away stars, Big Brother stars and maybe even Sunrise stars), Channel 7 will be announcing the stars sooner than we think.
“The new season of Big Brother looks fantastic. We can’t wait for Australia to meet this year’s amazing collection of housemates and to start discovering the many surprises and twists we have built into the show,” Seven Network Programming Director, Angus Ross said.
“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.”
In previous years, under the helm of Network Ten, Big Brother saw famous faces such as Dylan Lewis, Jay Laga’aia, Kyle Sandilands, Sara-Marie Fedele, Gabby Millgate, Adriana Xenides, Warwick Capper and Anthony Mundine enter through the door of Big Brother’s house.
All we can say is, bring on Big Brother VIP.
