Default Big Brother relaunch to recapture 'Golden era'

https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/ent...b065f42e31341b

In the original reboot announcement, ITV2 controller Paul Mortimer promised a “refreshed, contemporary new series” that retained “all the familiar format points that kept viewers engaged and entertained the first time round”.
These are already confirmed to include nominations and live evictions.
He added there would be “a brand new look and some additional twists that speak to today’s audience”.
In his March press call, Kevin Lygo also said his vision was for Big Brother to be “intelligent” and “upmarket”.
He said: “The key to Big Brother is to keep it like it was in its golden period, to have it more interesting, intelligent, upmarket, etcetera, than other reality shows.”

Good news imo!!

As much as I have always adored big brother and as perfect as its earlier seasons/golden era were... It has NEVER been "upmarket" . Come on now.

I think they mean more upmarket than trash like TOWIE and Love Island.

At this point it would be any Season that was on Channel 4.

The Channel 5 years make the weakest Channel 4 years look like Game Of Thrones quality in comparison.

I feel like that's typically what if referred to as the Golden Years when it comes to BB, but they could mean anything.

I wonder if they'll actually adhere to a strict "no contact with the outside world" rule.
