Big Brother host Emma Willis has spoken out about the show’s end ahead of tonight’s last ever final.
The reality series is set to draw to a close this evening on Channel 5 at 10PM after 18 years on air.
And although there has been speculation the show may continue on another channel, Emma has said that as it stands Big Brother really is over.
Emma explained in her final ever Big Brother video diary: “It’s hard to know what’s going to happen in fact it’s impossible to know what will happen with the show.
“All we can go on are the facts at this time and the facts, at this moment in time, is that the show is over. In my head, I’m treating tonight like the last ever show I do on Big Brother which is really difficult.”
Emma concluded: “The best thing we can do is have the most amount of fun we can muster in an hour and 15 minutes and then have even more fun on BOTS.”
Big Brother will begin at 10PM on Channel 5 before the winner is crowned at 11:15PM. Rylan Clark-Neal will then takeover for Bit On The Side until 00:30AM.
“Tonight is about celebrating a family member as I’m concerned. It’s all of our Big Brother,” Emma added.
Sharing advice she had been given, Emma went: “‘Don’t be sad that it’s ending, be happy that it happened.’
“We’ve got four brilliant finalists and I’m just so happy that the last series, that we know of, has been the most reminiscent of the early days of Big Brother and when it was born. The housemates have all been fantastic and our four finalists thoroughly deserve to be there.
“It’s going to be a hard show but a fun show.”
Cameron Cole, Zoe Jones, Akeem Griffiths and Cian Carrigan will compete for the £100,000 prize tonight.
