Big Brother's rumoured big twist hasn't left fans happy

Big Brother's latest planned 'big twist' is proving rather controversial with fans.

It was reported today that the upcoming 'regular' series of Big Brother would become more of a third series of Celebrity Big Brother for this year.

Now magazine claims that the summer's run would be made up of both 'civilian' and celebrity housemates.

A source told the publication: "We’re planning on really mixing up the regular series this time by chucking in a load of celebs too and splitting the house up.

"The producers have been approaching people from Gogglebox, TOWIE and Ex On The Beach and have some great names lined up."

Channel 5's response to the report has been "no comment" (via Big Blagger) so any truth to the claims won't be revealed for a month or two yet when the new series begins.

Reaction online to the twist has been overwhelmingly negative, if our own Twitter feed is anything to go by.

Most seem to feel that it makes the whole idea of a 'normal' Big Brother pointless while the prospect of barely just Z-list housemates from other reality shows is another off-putting aspect of the rumours for a lot of people.

Others have suggested it could possibly be the beginning of the end for Big Brother's normal series completely, with only Celebrity series airing from now on.

Of course it's all just rumours and speculation at this point and with Channel 5 saying nothing we'll have to wait and see what the plan is...

Big Brother will air on Channel 5 in the summer.
