Big Brother Channel 5

Around 40 housemates and 500 extras have taken part in the filming of a new telly ad for the return of Big Brother to Channel 5. Stars from previously Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother series reunited in a secret location today to film the new spot.

Big Brother 1 winner Craig Phillips, Big Broher 8 twins Samanda, Big Brother 7 champ Pete Bennett and Ultimate Big Brother star Josie Gibson were among those at the shoot. Celebrity Big brother star Alex Reid, Irrepressible Dark Horse Marcus Akin and Big Brother 8 winner Brian Belo also feature.

Big Brother babes Saskia Howard Clarke and Makosi Musambasi were also at the filming, which featured a full brass band.

The ad, a celebration of the resurrection of the reality series on Channel 5 after its axe by Channel 4 last year, will premiere next week.

Last year Channel 4 reunited a number of former Big Brother housemates for a 'funeral' advert to celebrate what was set to be the last ever series of the hit reality series.
