The Big Brother UK house is set to be demolished following the end of the show's latest series.

Big Brother started on UK TV in 2000, originally airing on Channel 4.

It moved to Channel 5 in 2011 but the broadcaster announced in September that it had decided not to renew the show beyond 2018.

The latest season wrapped up earlier this month (November) and now its famous house is set to be taken down.

The iconic Big Brother house is due to be torn down in the coming weeks with the outdoor studio already in the process of being 'derigged'.

“The production company who make Big Brother own the house, but Elstree Studios own the land, so the house has to be taken down now the show has been cancelled,” a source told The Sun newspaper.

They added: “It’s not the end for the show and everyone is convinced it’ll find a new home on another channel, but the house has to leave the site.”

Although there's been talk of the show moving to a new channel once more, nothing has been confirmed just yet.

Bit On The Side's Rylan Clark-Neal tweeted today (Sunday, November 25): "Not BB yet but u know we’re working on it #SaveBBUK"

Speaking last week, he said: "My brain just doesn't understand that it's not coming back. To me, I can't understand that I have presented it for the last time. It's going to be majorly missed."

He told the Daily Mail newspaper: "And trust me, I am doing everything I can do in my power to get it back.

"I can't imagine Big Brother not being around. It has shaped my life. I am really in a world of denial about this. I want it back. Many people do."

The current Big Brother house in Elstree has been home to the show since 2002, with the first two series airing from a different site in Bow, London.
