Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace vows to "buy a channel" to keep Big Brother on air

The show came to an end on Monday night

Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace has said she will "buy a channel" to keep Big Brother on the air.

The 39-year-old television personality - who finished third on the reality show in the seventh series of the show in 2006 - says she is in "total denial" at the fact that what could be the final series of the show ended on Monday night.

Aisleyne admitted she "sobbed my way through" the finale and still refuses to "believe this is the end".

Writing in her column for The Sun, she shared: "IT'S the final curtain, BUT I'M STILL IN TOTAL DENIAL! Even after sobbing my way through last night's final and sobbing my way through writing this column... I STILL refuse to believe this is the end ...

"Please will someone at least take the show on even if just for the celeb version?"

She added: "Damn, I'm even thinking of buying a channel and taking the show on myself if no one else will. The budget would be REAL budget, rations would mean REAL rations, but at least the show would go on. (sic)"

It comes after the show's host Emma Willis broke down live on television as she bid farewell to Big Brother last night.

Speaking at the end of the episode - which saw 19-year-old Cameron Cole crowned the winner - she said: "Thank you to the 300 plus production team that work tirelessly behind the scenes to bring you our very special show.

"To Davina [McCall], Marcus, and Brian, who have paved the way as hosts. To all of the Big Brother housemates that have taken part over the last 18 years, and to all of you at home.

I'm even thinking of buying a channel and taking the show on myself if no one else will.

"Whether you've been here for the long haul, or you've recently climbed on board, with you, we would never have lasted 18 years."

Emma - who also hosted spin-off show Big Brother’s Bit on the Side from 2011 to 2015, before Rylan Clark-Neal took over - then began to cry as she thanked the show for being her very own "big brother".

She said: "But most of all, thank you to Big Brother for being the best big brother to me. Like any sibling he has made me laugh uncontrollably, scream in frustration, and weep with sadness and joy.

"I will love you always, but it’s time now for this house to hopefully find a new home. Thank you so much for watching."

In September, Channel 5 released a statement saying: "The forthcoming series of Big Brother will be the last – of either celebrity or civilian versions – on Channel 5.

"We’d like to thank Endemol and all of the production team who have worked tirelessly to make the show a success.

"We’d also like to thank our brilliant presenters - Emma on Big Brother and Rylan from Bit on the Side - for their consummate professionalism, Marcus, the voice of Big Brother and all of the housemates who have created so many memorable moments."
