Big Brother… is it over? Is It not? There were always rumours that the show would be headed over to Channel 5, but it seems as though the negotiations have broken down between the channel and programme's makers Endemol.

According to once source, "The deal was quite far down the track, it was virtually agreed and then the negotiations went cold," and rumour has it that the channel are now looking at another reality show thought up by one of Big Brother's creators called The Golden Cage.

I do hope this doesn’t mean the end of Big Brother forever… I cant actually believe there are some people who have never known life without Big Brother (mainly 10 year olds) and I don’t think I could handle breaking the news to them…
