It looks like that Big Brother house extension didn’t come cheap after it was revealed that the Big Brother prize fund will stand at £100,000 this year!
The new prize fund, down £50,000 on last year, makes it yet again one of the lowest prize funds from Big Brother in the world.
But, don’t fear – it might actually end up being more (or less) if there’s a prize fund twist.
Last year’s Big Brother winner Chloe Wilburn actually ended up walking away with £116,100, so it’s not all doom and gloom.
Big Brother 10 winner Sophie Reade walked away with £71,320 whilst Aaron Allard-Morgan’s who won Channel 5’s first series got a measly £50,990!
In a press release, Channel 5 revealed that the housemates should expect the unexpected, with the housemates “Under attack from an unseen ominous dark force that will have a dramatic and divisive effect on the house.”
With a total overhaul of the house, and a new Big Brother eye revealed, could a prize fund twist be part of the new series? Or have Big Brother bosses just realises the prize money doesn’t matter anymore!
Big Brother will return to Channel 5 in June with host Emma Willis.
