Endemol have announced the names of the new creative directors after Denis O’Connor left last series suddenly and unexpectedly.
Replacing O’Connor is executive producers Katy Manley and Susy Price. Their former positions will be filled by Andrew Jackman and Shannon Delwiche. Andrew has previously been Big Brother’s series editor and Shannon has worked on shows such as Sky1’s King Of The Nerds UK.
This marks the first time that the executive producer role on Big Brother has been filled by entirely new blood since the show was on Channel 4.
Also, it’s been confirmed that live feed will return this series with at least 30 minutes every weeknight on Channel 5 and digital channel 5*.
Earlier today, Channel 5 released the brand new eye for the seventeenth series that launches this January.
