Big Brother's Bit On The Side

Channel 5 has confirmed that Big Brother spin-off Bit On The Side will not air on Sundays during Celebrity Big Brother 2014.

According to details released by the broadcaster today, it will air between Mondays and Fridays, while its psychology-themed sister show ‘Bit On The Psych’ follows on Saturdays.

It will be the first time since the reality format moved to C5 in 2011 that they have not aired a companion show seven days a week.

The last series saw Rylan Clark host a special Sunday edition of BOTS – dubbed ‘Rylan’s Supersized Celebrity Sunday’ – in a lunchtime slot. However, it flopped in the ratings, getting only a few hundred thousand viewers each week.

The news comes after bbspy revealed that AJ Odudu will not be returning as a presenter, with the 25-year-old said to have ‘mutually agreed’ her depature with producers.

BOTP will now be co-hosted by Rylan and Iain Lee, with Carol McGiffin as head panellist – while Rylan and Emma Willis will continue to front BOTS.

Elsewhere, the first information about the thirteenth CBB has been released – including the new eye logo, which features an opulent pink and gold design.

Celebrity Big Brother returns to our screens in January.

    Really disappointed that it not 7 days this time around. They could of just put Sunday’s episode back on 5* at 10pm. Also I still really miss Alice Levine so much! :sad:

    I’ve just sent Richard Desmond an email, where BB was mention highly. If the rating for CBB are high, Channel 5 may re-csion the Sunday BBBOTS. I was suggesting that when Emma Willis does her slot on ITV This Morning in the Hub, we as fans could email ITV TM, & mention BB, with a view to promote the show. I think the Sunday show will return for the Civillian BB in the Summer. I’ve suggest to RD, that their could show the audition during the BGT FINAL BREAKS.
