Big Brother 2012: New series will feature live feed, but not 24/7
The format was tried during the last series of Celebrity Big Brother, where cameras went live to the house on Channel 5’s sister channel, 5* and as it proved a hit with viewers, the broadcaster decided to continue the live feed.
Yesterday, host Brian Dowling said, “Live feed is back after every live show. There will be an hour on 5*.
“We did that in January and it worked. When we did live celeb nominations I think over a million watched, which was record-breaking for 5*.
“I think people realised then that there really was an interest in live feed…”
However, thousands of fans think it defeats the purpose of the show to block 24/7 live feeds from the house, but despite numerous protests via social networking sites and chat forums, Channel 5 have consistently refused to reinstate the ‘red button’ and online access.
The new series kicks off on Tuesday, June 5th at 9pm, with an hour long look at the auditions airing at 8pm.
