Big Brother Australia presenter Sonia Kruger

Big Brother Australia presenter Sonia Kruger has seemingly confirmed that Channel Nine is working on a new Celebrity series.

Rumours that the famous version would be revived Down Under emerged last month when it was reported that UK CBB winner Katie Price had been asked to take part.

Now, Kruger has let slip that bosses are in the process of casting a Celebrity edition, although it has yet to be officially commissioned.

During former BBAU hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O’s KIIS 1065 radio show today, the former asked Kruger what is happening with normal Big Brother – only to receive an answer about CBB.

“It’s still being talked about, they’re kind of looking at the casting,” Kruger revealed. “There are some very interesting people that could possibly turn up. I can’t give too much away because there are some big international names that are being floated.”

However, the 49-year-old was unsure when the proposed Celebrity run could air due to Nine’s tight schedule, adding: “There’s a lot going on, but if we did Celebrity Big Brother it’d be a slightly shorter run so we should be able to get it in there somewhere.

“It does well in the UK too, Celebrity Big Brother. It’s a massive show over there.”

Sandilands then pressed Kruger on whether the regular Big Brother would return, but she only said: “It is turning out to be quite a busy year.”

Nine is thought to have put BBAU on the back burner after disappointing ratings for last year’s series, but the broadcaster is remaining tight-lipped on the status of the show.

Rumours that it had been axed intensified when Kruger was handed a role on talent contest The Voice, which previously featured only one presenter.

In January, Kruger gave birth to her daughter Maggie, five months after she announced her first pregnancy.
