Big Brother Australia to return with ‘revised format’?

Big Brother Australia 2014

Rumours are once again suggesting that Big Brother Australia could be brought back for a new series with a “revised format”.

The show has now been on hiatus for over a year and a half, with Nine opting not to proceed with a planned Celebrity version last year – while reports of a new run in 2016 have failed to come to fruition.

But The Courier Mail newspaper has offered fans fresh hope, claiming it is “hearing murmurs” that a revival is again on the cards, with a “revised format”.

This is the first news about BBAU since February, when its presenter Sonia Kruger commented that it had been put “on the back burner”.

However, while the current Big Brother house at Dreamworld theme park in Queensland is still standing – despite claims it had been dismantled – the Mail indicates that it could move to a new location, such as Sydney or Melbourne.

Despite BBAU’s lengthy break, it has yet to be axed by Nine, which is understood to have the rights to the show until the end of 2016.

The broadcaster last commented on its status almost a year ago, when programming boss Andrew Backwell said: “It is still in consideration, so we’re certainly not ruling it out.”

BBAU’s last series, which was won by Ryan Ginns, concluded in November 2014.
