There could be an Irish version of Celebrity Big Brother on its way to our screens very soon.
The television production company behind First Dates Ireland, Coco Television, have reportedly bought the rights to the popular reality show.
Speaking to the Irish Sun a source revealed that TV3 may be set to air CBB on one of their channels.
“Big Brother has never been done in Ireland but Irish broadcasters are now so risk averse to new programme ideas, it’s a safe show and could provide content for all three TV3 channels,” the source said.
TV3 reportedly are eager to acquire Celebrity Big Brother in order to compete with RTE’s Dancing With The Stars.
In the past Irish celebs such as Brian Dowling, Jedward, Jeremy McConnell and Calum Best have created endless entertainment for viewers on the UK version of the show, so we’re sure an Irish version would be a huge success.
