Big Brother 2017 housemates to be chosen by viewers in new twist!

Big Brother 2017 housemates will be voted into the house by viewers at home in an General Election launch twist, according to a report.

An election themed twist will hit this year’s launch show where viewers will see prospective housemates pitch themselves (like Dragons Den) to viewers at home, the public will then decide their favourites to enter the house.

This is a first for Big Brother UK, and Channel 5 bosses are ‘excited’ by the new twist.

“Big Brother bosses are really running with the election fever of the country this year and mocking up housemates as political party leaders,” a source told The Sun.

“Like a real-life politician the hopeful housemates will have to convince the public to vote for them with a convincing speech.

“It will all be filmed live so they will be under pressure not to fluff up their speeches. It will be an exciting twist to the opening night shenanigans.”

Although Channel 5 haven’t confirmed the report, they did say: “Viewers will have to tune in next week to find out more.”

Big Brother is presenting a must-watch culture clash of modern Britain on the 5th June. At a time of political upheaval and tough questions about unity in the UK, Big Brother will show viewers an alternative look at Britain.

The theme for this year’s BBUK is ‘The United Kingdom of Big Brother’.

Big Brother returns 5th June on Channel 5 at 8:30pm.
