Emma Willis has stated that she doesn’t want Big Brother to be axed by Channel 5.
The show host, who took over from Brian Dowling in 2013 revealed that she feels it could make it to 2020!
“I’m hoping it doesn’t go anywhere, but no one’s told me anything yet,” she revealed to The Sun.
“I would love it to make 2020. A nice round number and 20 years would be amazing.
“I do think that if you get Big Brother right, if you keep the essentials of what it is – a psychological experiment of how different people react in an unrealistic situation – it’s something that can keep going.
I’m a nosy neighbour, so for me it’s perfect television.”
Speaking of what the future of the show could look like, Emma added that the Year Of The Woman was a good example of ‘classic’ Big Brother.
“I loved this series, really loved it,” she said.
“It was fun, thought-provoking, and had a really rounded cast. For me, it had enough of the old Big Brother and new Big Brother to make it great again.
“This series was a much more fun house. So if it stays like that, then yeah, I’d love to stay.”
The current deal with Channel 5 will see at least one further civilian and celebrity series before the end of the contract.
Big Brother 2018 returns in the summer to Channel 5.
