Big Brother 2015 to start within weeks and will split from Celebrity Big Brother

The new series of Big Brother 2015 will start on TV within WEEKS, it's been revealed.

The show usually begins its summer run in June but this year has been moved back to May.

It's the first ever series to start in May on Channel 5 and the first since waaaay back in 2007 to have started so early altogether

But it won't mean a bumper long series as the move has been made to 'split up' Big Brother from the second Celebrity Big Brother run of the year.

Our pals over at BBSpy report that under the new schedule, BB will run from May until July when there will be a few weeks rest before CBB begins in August.

The change means that Big Brother will end up clashing with Britain's Got Talent's semi-final week, which probably won't be too great for ratings.

Last week Channel 5 confirmed it had signed a whopping new deal to air the show until at least the end of 2018.

Big Brother has been renewed for NINE more series, airing three runs a year as well as spin-off shows Bit On The Side.

Current host Emma Willis previously vowed to 'never quit' BB but at the rate it's going, the show will still be on air long after she - and probably all of us too - are gone.
