No ‘Bit On The Side’ on Sundays during Celeb BB
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.
Celebrity Big Brother returns to our screens in January.
