Big Brother 2018, also known as Big Brother 19 was the nineteenth series of Big Brother, and the final series to air on Channel 5. The series launched four days after the final of Celebrity Big Brother 22 on 14 September 2018 and lasted for 53 days with the final ever episode airing on 5 November 2018. The series is the eighth regular and twenty-third series of Big Brother to air on Channel 5 since 2011; it was also the final series of Big Brother in the three-year contract that was announced on 19 March 2015, which guaranteed that the show would air on Channel 5 until 2018.[1]

On 14 September 2018, it was confirmed that this series would be the final series to air on Channel 5.[2]

On 5 November 2018, Cameron Cole was announced as the winner of the series, beating Akeem Griffiths who finished as runner-up.[3] At 19 years old, Cole is the youngest winner of Big Brother in the UK series' eighteen-year history. Much like Ultimate Big Brother, the final Channel 4 series, the series ended with the words "Big Brother will get back to you"

Production[]

Creative team[]

Endemol confirmed that a new creative team had been formed ahead of the series. Paul Osborne, executive producer of Big Brother 7, returns to overlook the new series as Creative Director.[4] Trevor Boris was also later hired as a senior producer after co-producing Big Brother Canada since its inception.[5]

Format[]

On several occasions in the run-up to Celebrity Big Brother 22, various news reports and Big Brother alumni hinted at the series going back to its roots, with less producer manipulation and a focus on the show as a social experiment.[6]

The shows' producers also met with several fansites to discuss the direction of the show, with it being heavily reported that the show will bring back weekly shopping tasks and a consistent nominations format.[7][8][9]

It was confirmed by creative director Paul Osborne that the series would have a "separate identity" from the Celebrity Big Brother 22.[6]

The eye was revealed on 4 September 2018, with Osborne commenting on its look of "a vast luminous orb of colours".[10]

Cancellation[]

On 24 August 2018 while speaking at the Edinburgh International Television Festival Channel 5 controller Ben Frow announced that he was planning for a year without the Big Brother franchise on Channel 5 in 2019, confirming that the current three-year contract expires at Christmas 2018.[11] Frow had previously stated at the 2017 event that he'd be much happier with a channel without Big Brother on it.[12] On 14 September 2018, Channel 5 confirmed that both Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother had been axed and that this series would be "the end of the game”.
