Celebrity Big Brother host Emma Willis has revealed she hopes the show can make it to it’s 20th anniversary on Channel 5.
The Big Brother face has also stated she don’t think of Love Island as competition.
Speaking to The Sun, she said: “I don’t think there is any rivalry between the two shows, they are completely different. They can both exist alongside each other.
“Love Island is about couples looking for romance and Big Brother is about a group of people being taken out of their comfort zones, from different walks of life, and seeing how they cope living with each other.”
Love Island has only been going for three years, which compared to Big Brother — now in its 17th year across two channels — is relatively small fry.
Speaking about whether Big Brother could be axed, Emma revealed: “I hope it’s got legs. I’ve been obsessed with it since it began in 2000, but everything has a shelf life.
“Hopefully it will go for a little while longer. It would be nice for it to at least make 20 years.”
She said: “In the normal Big Brother the contestants are fighting for a lot of money, but in Celebrity Big Brother I like it to be fun as all the housemates are being paid to be in there.
“The housemates who threaten to walk because the hot water is turned off are a bit annoying, as it’s not like anything seriously bad will happen to them.
They just need to enjoy it and put on a good show.”
Celebrity Big Brother launches tomorrow night at 9pm on Channel 5.
