Big Brother 2018: Fans spot MAJOR change as Emma Willis launches show | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV
Big Brother kicked off it’s live launch this evening with host Emma welcoming a new group of civilians into the house.
But as the brunette beauty welcomed the first contestant, who was a 23-year-old farmer, fans spotted a major change in the show’s format.
Cian was introduced to the viewers with a short VT before Emma revealed he had arrived at the Borehamwood Bungalow.
As his car pulled up, he was seen walking through the crowd before heading straight into the house.
This is a big change for the Channel 5 show as housemates usually stop and chat to Emma before heading inside.
Emma uses the time to gauge what housemates are expecting from their time in the house and if they have a game plan.
But tonight, she simply watched on from the sidelines as she drip fed viewers information about the housemates.
Viewers were quick to notice the change and took to Twitter to comment.
“He didn’t have any interaction with Emma, this is so old school I love it #BBUK #SaveBBUK,” one viewer shared.
Another added: “Interesting! They’re allowing housemates to walk through the crowd this time, and they’re not stopping to talk to Emma. Finally, better pace! #BBUK.”
A third continued: “Yes yes yes cutting out the sh**t talk! #BBUK.”
“They come through the crowd and don’t speak to Emma #BBUK,” someone else wrote.
A fifth asked: “So Emma doesn’t speak to them then? #bbuk.”
Cian was quickly joined by Anamelia, Lewis and Kenaley.
There will be 14 housemates in total for the final series of Big Brother.
It comes after Channel 5 released a statement confirming the show would come to an end.
The statement, which was shared on the official Twitter account, read: ”It’s time for this game to end. The final series of Big Brother starts tonight at 9pm.
“The forthcoming series of Big Brother will be the last – of either celebrity or civilian versions – on Channel 5.
“We’d like to thank Endemol and all of the production team who have worked tirelessly to make the show a success.”
Big Brother airs every night on Channel 5 at 10pm.
