Big Brother host Emma Willis confessed “hand on heart” she does not know what the future holds for the reality TV series after it was scrapped, yet let slip producers are talking to a number of TV channels.
The presenter, who fronted the action from the iconic bungalow for the past five years, fought back the tears during Monday’s final.
Prior to Cameron Cole’s victory on the civilian series, Channel 5 confirmed it would be the last on both the celebrity and ordinary folk versions.
Yet during a chat on Thursday’s This Morning, the 43 year old gave a glimmer of hope to hardcore viewers the series could return.
Host Phillip Schofield quizzed whether a new producer would be taking it over, as Emma frankly replied: “I don’t know.
“Hand on my heart, I honestly don’t know.”
Though she did confess: “I have asked, and they have said ‘we are talking to people’.
“People are non committal, but if it happens … in a perfect world, it would be amazing.”
Talking on whether she would resume her role in a re-boot, she added: “It depends what changes they make that would depend whether I was there or not.”
Meanwhile, announcing the show fate on their Twitter page, Channel 5 posted a statement which read: “The forthcoming series of Big Brother will be the last – of either celebrity or civilian versions – on Channel 5. We’d like to thank Endemol and all of the production team who have worked tirelessly to make the show a success.
“We’d also like to thank our brilliant presenters – Emma on Big Brother and Rylan from Bit on the Side – for their consummate professionalism, Marcus, the voice of Big Brother and all of the housemates who have created so many memorable moments.
“Most importantly, we’d like to thank fans of the show for their support over the last seven years. We look forward to giving the final series a brilliant send-off.”
