Auditions for the first series of 'Big Brother' on Channel 5 have opened up online
'Big Brother' auditions have begun.
The reality TV show - which finished a 10-year run on Channel 4 in 2010 before being picked up by Channel 5 - has opened online auditions to search for a group of people who are keen to enter the fly-on-the-wall series.
Channel 5 director of programmes Jeff Ford said: "Channel 5 will bring a completely fresh perspective to the 'Big Brother' phenomenon and, by inviting people to apply for the show online, we hope to assemble the most entertaining and captivating house yet.
"We're looking forward to seeing the fully array of applications, either online or in person."
Details of face-to-face auditions for the show - which will have a celebrity version prior to heading over to a public variant this summer - are to be released in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, Emma Willis has revealed she would love to host the show following the departure of Davina McCall, although she does think she would get criticised for it.
She added: "That would be the one thing I would c**p my pants over. Nobody wants to follow Davina and I'm under no illusion that I would probably get a pasting for it, but what can you do."
Emma also claims troubled actor Charlie Sheen would be her perfect housemate because people would take him on and confront him.
She told Star magazine: "I was reading they want Charlie Sheen. He would be amazing, I love Charlie.
"You kind of want an elegant, witty, hot chick to take him on. Someone who is not going to take the bait. But who is that woman?"
