Could this be the end of the celebrity and civilian reality TV show, Big Brother? It is rumoured that Channel 5 will ‘axe’ the show later this year.

The Daily Star claims the shows have faced a “ratings plummet” so Channel 5 will “pull the plug” after 18 years.

The news has caused concern on social media with fans speculating if the rumour is true, some say it’s a huge publicity stunt.

With the current series of Celebrity Big Brother finishing on February 2 and applications now open for the civilian show, will this be the last Celeb series of Big Brother ever?
