Despite numerous calls to reinstate live feed for Big Brother, Channel 5 insisted this week it would not be reversing its decision. Writing in response to complaints about the axe on the official Facebook page, Channel 5 said there were “no plans” to bring back the feed for the ‘normal’ edition of the show.
Celebrity Big Brother ends of September 8, with a new series involving members of the public kicking off just 24 hours later.
In a statement, Channel 5 commented: “It has been amazing to see so many of you are passionate and enthusiastic about the show. The feedback – positive and negative – has been passed on.
“And although a live feed has been carefully considered – there are currently no plans to bring it back on-air or online, for Celebrity or normal Big Brother.”
They added: “If this changes we’ll post it here first.”
Channel 5 previously announced the feed was axed in favour of a focus on social media.
