Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother to air in Ireland

Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother will air on Ireland's TV3 this year, it has been confirmed.

The show hasn't been available in Ireland since its move to Channel 5 - which only airs in the UK - despite big money offers from Irish broadcasters.

Even earlier this year when the show was airing on MTV's channels it was even blocked to Irish viewers attempting to watch.

However it seems that finally TV3 has struck a deal and will air this summer's Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother, according to the Irish independent.

But it remains unclear whether or not voting will work, with Channel 5's Terms and Conditions currently stating: "Channel 5 reserves the right to disallow votes if it has reasonable grounds to suspect they have been made from outside the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man."

Big Brother is expected to start next month.
