Big Brother 2016 will be a "brand new show" after huge changes

Celebrity Big Brother - Summer 2014

Big Brother 2016 could change so much that it'll be a "brand new show", it's been claimed.

Bit On The Side host Rylan Clark has teased that the new series in the summer will be VERY different.

It follows reports earlier on in the week that show bosses were planning to "relaunch" the series for its seventeenth run this summer.

Rylan has now said that the changes will see Big Brother become "a brand new show”.

He told I Talk Telly (RealitySpy): "It’s all change at Big Brother so it’ll be like starting a new job.

"We’ve been ready for a while for that, and I think the public have been ready for that, so I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s reactions on launch night."

He added: "This year, expect something very different.”

Rylan reckons that the changes will mean better viewing for us fans as the housemates won't be able to 'play' the game.

“People know what Big Brother is now, the contestants know what to expect," the former Celebrity Brother champ explained. "This year they won’t, because we’re doing something brand new which they haven’t even thought about!”

So far there's been no word on what exactly the changes will be however we know that the house itself will be getting a huge makeover.

Planning permission from the local council was granted last week for a big extension which Rylan suggested could become a new "task arena".

As for the Big Brother 2016 start date, nothing has been announced yet but it's looking likely it will be in June this year.
