Fans of Big Brother will be pleased to know that the ratings-grabbing show has signed with Channel 4 for another three years.
This means that dozens more attention-seekers will have a chance to bid for stardom by taking part in the ultimate fly-on-the-wall TV series.
Makers Endemol UK have signed a deal worth millions of pounds with Channel 4 and are so confident about the show's success that they are extending this summer's series to 11 weeks.
The only change will be the location, as TV bosses are considering moving the Big Brother house from its current home in Elstree, Herts, for next year's series.
"We've been very happy at Elstree but we are always keen to keep the show fresh," an insider told the Daily Star.
Auditions for the sixth Big Brother closed at the weekend, giving the selection panel a few months to choose the final set of housemates before the series starts in May.
