We guess it just couldn't stay off the air!
The UK version of Big Brother, which ended its run on England's Channel 4 in September of 2010, will reportedly be brought back to life once again on Channel 5!
According to reports, the network's boss Richard Desmond is 'on the verge' of signing a deal with Endemol for the rights to reality competition. Commercial terms of the contract have been agreed upon both sides, and now all that's needed for things to be finalized are the proper signatures!
Sources have revealed that the contract is expected to last as long as five years, with the option for it to be reduced if it doesn't do as well as they expect it to! They've also allegedly bought the rights to Celebrity Big Brother.
Inneresting! We'll be curious to see how much viewership it garners, given the length of its hiatus off the air!
People get pretty into that show, so we imagine that they won't have even problems maintaining that five year contract!
