Big Brother 2013 superfan (and new host) Emma Willis has called on bosses to put in more older housemates this year.
The first ever series of Big Brother on Channel 5 two years ago saw all the wannabes aged 30 or under, a move which producers admitted last year was a mistake.
And Emma agrees, saying she too wants to see a better mix of contestants in the summer.
She said: “Big Brother will get a really good mix of characters, the last civilian one was good but there wasn’t a diverse enough group of characters, they were all quiet similar same age.
“I’m hoping this one will bring a more varied bag of people. I’d like to see some older housemates.”
However Emma’s reasons for wanting older housemates are rather practical: simply because they’ll be sure to clean up the house!
She added: “Older contestants add a different dimension, we saw that in the last series that you need to have some form of boundaries, otherwise you just live in a crap hole.
“You need a mother figure you need some form of discipline in the house.
“It’s also interesting to see people of different ages and how they interact in the house rather than just a bunch of people who are the same age.”
Big Brother 2013 returns to Channel 5 in June.
