The global reality hit is going from strength to strength, with 32 productions airing across 25 markets this year, up from 2021. Big Brother’s celebrity spin-off was named K7 Media’s spin-off of the year in 2021 with 17 active markets.

With no contact from the outside world, celebrity participants must learn how to co-habit with their new housemates whilst competing against them every week in physical and mental challenges. Watching the celebrities 24/7 they must decide who should be evicted and who ultimately should be crowned the winner of Big Brother VIP.
