BB promise ‘culture clash of modern Britain’

Channel 5

Big Brother is back and a new logo for the upcoming series has finally been revealed with bosses promising a “culture clash of modern Britain”.

The Channel 5 reality show will be back on our screens next month with a whole host of new housemates ready to cause mischief and shake things up.

And now fans of the show can get excited for series 18 as the first details about the show start to emerge.

The new Big Brother eye is formed from a multi-coloured Union Jack flag and features a patchwork of eclectic images representing modern Britain.

There’s everything from a polling station – hinting at the upcoming election – to cups of tea and the gates of Buckingham palace.

Channel 5 said: “This summer, Big Brother presents a must-watch culture clash of modern Britain.

‘”At a time of political upheaval and tough questions about unity in the UK, Big Brother brings you an alternative look at Britain.”

They added that the new series will be a “summer of contrasts, conflicts and collaboration… and more fireworks than you could imagine, as a selection of people, from a range of backgrounds, come together in the ultimate social experiment.

“The United Kingdom of Big Brother… and everyone is welcome.”

It has been confirmed that Emma Willis is heading back to host, and Rylan Clark-Neal will return for Bit On The Side.

Contestants are usually not allowed to hear news about the outside world once they're inside, so it'd be interesting to see how they'd get on if they remained ignorant of the result the whole time.

Fans of the epic programme, which tends to run for up to eight weeks, still have a reason to be excited though, as co-host Rylan Clark-Neal has said the house's new makeover is "unreal".

“I was there not long ago and the house is so different," Rylan said.

"When we did the second house last year, that was a massive change for us, but I’m totally just disregarding that for the moment because what we’ve done in the main house is absolutely unbelievable. It’s unreal."
