Marcus Bentley hints at June launch for BB13
Big Brother narrator Marcus Bentley has suggested the new series...
| Day -420

Big Brother narrator Marcus Bentley has suggested the new series will commence in June, despite popular belief producers were planning a May launch.

Talking to Big Brother fans via his twitter account, Marcus revealed no exact date has been set, but the series will start in June.

If so, the end of the 10-week run would overlap with the London Olympics.

However, in response to fears the games could harm Big Brother’s ratings, Marcus joked:
“BB’s on at 9 or 10 every night. What possible major Olympic action will be on at that time? Indoor pistol shooting?”

He added that he expects there to be an olympic-themed task or two for viewers to look forward too.

When would you prefer the new series to launch?

    If this is the case will :c5: still air bb13 at 10-11 and bots 11-12 , any earlier it would clash with some olympic event ,. Even so the late airing is not popular with some

    I’d much prefer May but the olympics being on won’t have any negative effect with it being on at night.

  9. I would like a june launch so good news for me.

    I was looking forward to the series starting in just a month, but a June launch does mean exams are out the way, plus with The Voice, BGT and The Apprentice all finished it means the focus on reality TV won’t be centered elsewhere…

    Well, I think June is probably a better month. Better weather, more fun. It’s only gonna be a couple of weeks “late” anyway, I bet if it was to be in May, it would be towards the end of the month. So all is good :yes:

    June is the best. I would have left school by then (yay) so I can stay up and watch Big Brother! The only time I wouldn’t be able to watch it is if I had an exam the following day (stupid exams). But there is always Demand 5! Big Brother, Wimbledon and The Olympics. My summer is sorted!
