(Updated 1:01pm 14th September 2018)

The new series of Big Brother will be its last.

The reality show, which first hit our screens 18 years ago, has struggled with falling ratings in recent years.

It was originally a Channel 4 programme, but switched to Channel 5 in 2011.

Tweeting ahead of tonight’s live launch, the channel said:

 

 

In a statement, Ryan Clark who hosts Big Brother's Bit on the Side show, has issued a statement online. He's said he will 'forever be grateful for the opportunity' and is 'saddened to hear the news Big Brother won't be returning'.
