Rylan Clark-Neal has revealed that he wants ‘Big Brother’ to move to Netflix or Amazon Prime.
The 30-year-old TV presenter – who won Celebrity Big Brother’s 11th series in 2013 and hosted ‘Big Brother’s Bit on the Side’ from 2013 to 2018 – is still disappointed by Channel 5’s decision to cancel the programme last year and hopes it could be revived on streaming platform Netflix or Amazon Prime Video.
He told Radio Times:
“People like watching TV when they want to watch TV, and you could certainly do Big Brother like that.
“Every day new episode could drop with the 24 hour highlights of the day before, then every Friday at 9pm you could log into your account and watch the eviction live. The technology is there with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.”
Rylan also admitted he is still upset about the cancellation of the show and can’t understand why Channel 5 opted to axe it.
“There’ll never be another ‘Big Brother’. There’s only one ‘Big Brother’. You can dress up all these other shows all you want but there’s only one.
It was the only reality show left that was real. You know producers wouldn’t be going in there and telling people what to do.”
Meanwhile, Rylan recently revealed his hope that ‘Big Brother’ will return for its 20th birthday next year.
Taking to social media last month, he tweeted:
“Today is @bigbrotheruk 19th birthday.
“Let’s hope for its 20th he’s back and bigger than ever. Happy Birthday #BBUK (sic)”
The reality show first aired on Channel 4 in 2000 and Rylan previously insisted he will not rest until the civilian or celebrity version is back on air.
He told BANG Showbiz: “I’m adamant ‘Big Brother’ will return, when and where I don’t know but I won’t rest until it does. I think ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ is one of the most important shows on TV because we get to see people for who they really, really are.
“You’ve only got to look at the events over the last seven years, and how it has changed the perception of people who are genuinely really nice and people who actually aren’t.”
