Emma Willis want to keep hosting Big Brother if it moved channels

Big Brother Summer 2018 - EMBARGO 4TH SEPTEMBER 2018

Big Brother host Emma Willis says she hopes to keep on hosting the show if it moved channels again.

Channel 5 confirmed ahead of the current series launch that it had axed Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother after seven years. The show started on the channel in 2011 after a decade on Channel 4, but won't be back after 2018.

Emma had originally started on Channel 4's Big Brother spin-off Little Brother before taking over the hosting duties of the main show on Channel 5.

And speaking this week, Emma said she'd happily follow the series to yet another home if it were to move channels again.

She told the Radio Times: "Would I be a part of another Big Brother? Why wouldn't I?

"I've been a part of it for such a long time. As long as diaries allowed for it and it was still the Big Brother I know and love, then yes."

Meanwhile, in a chat with The Sun newspaper, Emma was optimistic that Big Brother wasn't over for good.

Saying she was "sad and disappointed" the current series was set to be the last, Emma suggested the show could make a comeback after some time off air.

She said: “I feel sad and disappointed because it’s been a massive part of my life as a human being before I worked on it and also as a career and as a member of the British public, as it’s been on TV for almost 20 years.

“I am sad about it but everything needs a break at some point or a rest or a new home to breathe life into it again.

“So hopefully it will come back in some way shape or form at some point but if it does come back it needs to be in the right way and not rushed.”

Big Brother currently airs Sunday-Fridays at 10PM on Channel 5.
