Share article:

Netflix are the frontrunners to take on "Big Brother".

The show came to an end last night (05.11.18), potentially forever, after being shelved by Channel 5, but if the bookies" odds are to be believed then the streaming service could re-home the reality TV programme.

Ladbrokes are offering odds of just 5/4 for Netflix to become the next host for the series, followed by Amazon Prime, who are 2/1 second favourites.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Last night may have been the end for Channel 5, but "Big Brother" looks set to be given yet another life by Netflix."

Die-hard "Big Brother" supporters have also taken to social media in their droves to beg Netflix to take on the show.

"Big Brother" moved to Channel 5 in 2011 after a 10-year run on Channel 4, who are rated as 9/2 by the bookie to take on the show once again.

Host Emma Willis got emotional on last night's final as she bid farewell to the programme, and "Big Brother's Bit on the Side" presenter Rylan Clark-Neal - who triumphed on "Celebrity Big Brother" in 2013 - has admitted he will be "forever grateful" to the programme.

He wrote on Twitter: "You literally shaped my career and my personal life and I'll forever be grateful. From day 1 I was a fan, became a housemate, winner, and host and I'll never find anything like you again. @bbuk . The life I've got now is all because of you. Big Brother, I'll get back to you.
