C5 starts online search for Big Brother housemates

Channel 5 launched its online search for contestants for the next series of Big Brother today [Tuesday].

Anyone interested in being a housemate on the first series to screen on Channel 5 should enter at Big Brother Auditions.

Meanwhile, those who want to find out more about the process can follow updates via their BB Auditions Twitter page.

Applicants will also be invited to reveal their social networking profiles to Big Brother giving them the best chance ever to show why they deserve to go into the most famous house in Britain.

Big Brother will also be looking at more traditional ways of recruiting new housemates in person, with public audition dates and locations to be announced in the coming weeks.

Jeff Ford, Channel 5 Director of Programmes, said: “Channel 5 will bring a completely fresh perspective to the Big Brother phenomenon, and by inviting people to apply for the show online we hope to assemble the most entertaining and captivating house yet. We’re looking forward to seeing the full array of applications, either online or in person.”

The new series of Big Brother will screen on Channel 5 later this year, and will be preceded by an all-star celebrity version later this summer.
