The faces behind the voices of Big Brother have been revealed in a Celebrity Big Brother documentary.

A 30 minute special called Celebrity Big Brother: Behind The Scenes revealed the off camera goings on at the long-running reality show.

The one-off programme, which aired this year, gave us an in-depth look through the keyhole of the famous Celebrity Big Brother house, revealing a compelling glimpse at the work that goes on behind the scenes.

Celebrity Big Brother: Behind The Scenes aired as part of the latest series in January.

The episode followed a day in the life of the Big Brother team, as they put together a Celebrity Big Brother highlights show.

We saw what the many voices of Big Brother 'himself' look like in real life, and caught up with famous Geordie narrator Marcus Bentley.

The episode showed the dedication and effort that went in to every 24 hour period, from the task team to the editors.

It was also revealed how the team coped with celebrities who wanted to leave, as Malika Haqq threatened to quit the show.

Celebrity Big Brother and its 'civilian' sister show Big Brother have been airing for the best part of 20 years now.

However 2018 could well be its final year on the telly.

Channel 5 confirmed this month that the current series of Big Brother will be the last to air on the channel.

However, Big Brother may not be dead just yet.

Peter Salmon, chief creative officer at Endemol Shine, which makes the show, told the Guardian: “There are other roads you can take with this format so we’re pretty optimistic.”

It was reported at the weekend that the show could take up a new home on ITV.

It follows a story in The Times revealing that ITV had bid £3 billion for the Endemol Shine group which also makes shows as MasterChef and Peaky Blinders.

An industry insider told The Sun newspaper at the weekend: "Celebrity Big Brother is a hugely popular format and a massive brand that attracts millions of absolutely dedicated and importantly, young fans. That makes it extremely valuable when it comes to advertising.

"And there is no way another channel won't snap it up and bring it back, probably as early as next year.

"Channel Five getting rid of it is a massive gamble. It's still their most popular show, so it may be a decision they live to regret."

Production company Endemol said in a statement last week: "Whilst disappointed not to reach an agreement with Channel 5 the decision opens up a new chapter and we are excited about future possibilities for Big Brother in the UK."

Big Brother currently airs on Channel 5.
