Channel 4 is to broadcast some classic episodes of the reality show on E4 this summer. The 10-part series - to mark the 20th anniversary of the show - will be introduced by former hosts Davina McCall and Rylan Clark-Neal, who will also discuss their favourite moments.
Davina McCall said: “I lived and breathed Big Brother for 11 years of my life. I didn’t miss one single episode. Not one week goes by when I don’t quote big brother in some form. It made me laugh, it made me cry and most importantly it taught me to never judge a book by its cover. I love the show with all of my heart and can’t wait to share it with a whole new audience. And of course, all you diehard fans out there...It’s good to be back. Big Brother’s missed you.”
Rylan Clark-Neal said: “After being off air for nearly two years I’m so excited to be bringing some much-needed Big Brother back to our lives. Over the years Big Brother has brought ground breaking television moments for many reasons, but now so more than ever whilst we’re all playing the role of housemates, let’s go back and rewind the clock to some of our favourite ever episodes. There will be laughs, tears and drama, but most of all we get to relive some of Big Brother’s greatest episodes.”
Karl Warner, Controller of E4 said: “Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the greatest episodes of Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother will be playing on E4. For some it might be the first time they’ve seen the shows, for others a chance to relive some properly iconic TV. We can’t wait to see which moments Davina and Rylan pick.”
