Iconic Big Brother theme tune to remain the same on Channel 5

Big Brother Channel 5

The DJ who created the iconic Big Brother theme tune has been told by Channel 5 bosses not to change the track for the new series of Big Brother. Paul Oakenfold told the Daily Star this week he was told by the show's team "not to bother" after he asked to alter the tune.

The track - produced by Element Four - has become one of the most iconic TV theme tunes of recent years, having been used on the show for over a decade.

Paul told the newspaper: “I wanted to give it a remix but the station said to leave it as it is.”

The theme tune and narrator Marcus Bentley are pretty much the only things that'll remain from the original series, as Channel 5 launch their 'new look' Big Brother on August 18.
