Endemol Shine said: "While disappointed not to reach an agreement with Channel 5, the decision opens up a new chapter and we are excited about future possibilities for Big Brother in the United Kingdom".

"I learned how to host a show on the job here and I'll be forever grateful for the opportunity.

The final series of Big Brother starts tonight at 9pm", it noted. It's the launch of our civilian series.

Emma continued: "I feel like I've been through this process before".

"Well I have been through this process before because I worked on the a year ago on Channel 4 and we buried it. Genuinely, we had a grave for it and everything in the back garden".

Over its 18-year run, "Big Brother" has made household names out of housemates like Jade Goody, Nikki Grahame and "Nasty" Nick Bateman, while famous faces including Kirstie Alley, Sue Perkins and Courtney Act have stepped through the famous doors.

"Gutted. Watched from day one and I'm still a fan", said another.

Taking inspiration from the iconic 1914 Lord Kitchener Wants You advertisement by Alfred Leete, a large mural on the wall reads "Big Brother Needs You", as well as "All dressed up and nowhere to go".

With their identity being kept under wraps the only clue viewers have is that "the carer" from Halifax will be appearing on Channel 5 tonight and entering the house.

"The forthcoming series of Big Brother will be the last - of either celebrity or civilian versions - on Channel 5", a statement from the channel said.

"We'd like to thank Endemol and all of the production team who have worked tirelessly to make the show a success", Channel 5 added.

Big Brother premiered on Channel 4 in 2000 and immediately became a ratings hit - though viewing figures have dwindled in recent years.

"We'd also like to thank our brilliant presenters - Emma on "Big Brother" and Rylan from "Bit On The Side" - for their consummate professionalism, Marcus, the voice of "Big Brother" and all of the housemates who have created so many memorable moments".

Rylan Clark-Neal has hosted the spin-off show Bit on the Side for six years and tweeted to thank show makers and viewers for the "amazing journey". "We look forward to giving the final series a brilliant sendoff".
