Big Brother's Bit On The Side host Rylan Clark-Neal has revealed that Big Brother will 'not return' in an emotional statement.
The former Celebrity Big Brother housemate told his followers: "After six years of working on one of the most iconic shows on television I'm saddened to hear the news Big Brother won't be returning.
"It has been the biggest privilege being a housemate, a winner and a host on my favourite show on television.
"To work with Emma, Marcus and the amazing team on BOTS every day and have made friends sfor life I'm truly the luckiest guy in the industry."
"I hope one day Big Brother will return but my focus now, as with the rest of the team, is to make our last series the best yet.
"I'd like to thank all of our guests, housemates and teams from over the years, Endemol and Channel 5 for having me and most of all the viewers for sharing this amazing journey.
I learned how to host a show on the job here and I'll be forever grateful for the opportunity."
Earlier in the year, Channel 5 boss Ben Frow revealed that the reality show's contract runs out later this year.
