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

There is still speculation the show could be picked up by another channel in the future, and presenter Emma Willis would be up for a revival.

She recently said: “As long as diaries allowed for it and it was still the ‘Big Brother’ I know and love, then yes.”
