The new series of Big Brother 2018 will air from Friday, September 14th.
In what could potentially be the last BB series ever, people are expecting the long-running series to go out with a bang – just like Celebrity Big Brother did!
While Celebrity Big Brother lasted for 26 days, will it be the same for the civilians? With £100,000 in prize money up for grabs, surely they can weather the storm for a little longer!
It's time for this game to end.

When is Big Brother on TV?
Big Brother airs every night on Channel 5 at 9 pm, except Saturdays, where it is pushed back to 10 pm.
Emma Willis will be the face of the show as usual, with Rylan Clark Neal taking the reigns for Big Brother’s Bit On The Side.
How Long Does Big Brother Last?
Traditionally, Big Brother lasts around two months, while Celebrity Big Brother airs for one.
The previous series, which aired in 2017, aired from June 5th to July 28th.
This means that it lasted for a grand total of 54 days – two days short of eight weeks.
Some series have run as long as 72 days, although the norm over the past few years has been eight weeks.
When Does Big Brother Finish?
This means that Big Brother will air across the entirety of September and October.
If it runs for eight weeks, Big Brother should finish on Friday, November 9th.
However, this series could be full of shocking twists and surprises. For starters, series 19 marks the first time that Big Brother has aired before Celebrity Big Brother.
Perhaps the contestants will stay inside the house for less… perhaps they’ll be locked away until Christmas!
WATCH BIG BROTHER EVERY NIGHT ON CHANNEL 5, AT 9 PM – 10 PM ON SATURDAYS.
