Big Brother fans will have the opportunity to vote for a wildcard contestant to enter the house during this summer’s series, according to the Daily Star.
The paper reports that producers are finalising the initial line-up ahead of next month’s launch, but have also decided to let the public pick another housemate in the early stages of the series.
An insider revealed: “For years, fans have said that they want to choose housemates for the show and now they’ve got their chance.
“The wild cards will be characters who will stir things up and set the sparks flying. The lucky few will be brought out and do a Vote For Me piece to camera to explain why they should be chosen. Then it’s down to the public.
“This person stands a good chance of possibly winning. If viewers have picked them and they live up to expectations then they should be favourites to win,” they added.
In other news, it was reported earlier this week that we will see “two houses” over the summer, as the Big Brother compound goes into a 24-hour lockdown after the BB13 finale to receive a luxurious makeover in time for the CBB launch the following night.
Do you think it’s a good idea for viewers to have the chance to choose a wildcard housemate?
