Channel 5 is reportedly set to cut the upcoming series of Celebrity Big Brother to just 24 days, it has been claimed.
The broadcasters advertising partner Sky Media has began the search for a partner, but in the show description – it states approx 24 days in Jan 2017”
While this is all speculation, if it proves to be true then it would be the shortest celebrity series since summer 2012 and down eight days from last January’s run.
Last summer, Channel 5 slashed the civilian series, ending it after just 50 days in July.
Rumours have been running that the upcoming series will be an “All-Stars” series with past celebrity housemates returning for another stint in Britain’s most famous house. Simon Cowell’s ex Jasmine Lennard as well as reigning champion Stephen Bear are said to be returning.
