THE RECENTLY CONCLUDED BIG BROTHER IS THE LAST OF ITS KIND
Big brother seems not to be getting it right unlike it Africa/Nigeria counterpart, it experienced continued decrees of viewership right from the first series to the 19th series.
The first series of Big Brother attracted 9.45 million viewers in 2000 but the just concluded series attracted only 670,000 viewers
In contrast, the final of the previous series in 2017 was watched by 1.11 million.
Willis said that the programme had “created a whole new genre of TV that changed popular culture forever”.
Some of the highlights and best-known housemates since the programme began in 2000 featured in a montage to open the show, including first winner Craig Philips and the late Jade Goody.
Former host Davina McCall had wished Willis and fellow presenter Rylan Clark-Neal a good send-off ahead of the final, saying: “I know it is going to be hard tonight but I’m sending you so much love”.
It was announced in September that the long-running reality programmes’s 19th series would be its last.
