Celebrity BBUK special: When Comic Relief Did Big Brother (17 Mar)


Staff member
In surprising news Big Brother will be on the BBC in just two weeks time with a documentary looking back at the first series of Celebrity Big Brother, which was in aid of Comic Relief. When Comic Relief did Big Brother airs on BBC2 on 17 March at 10pm, and that means ahead of it's relaunch on ITV later this year Big Brother has aired on BBC1, BBC2, C4 and C5 in some capacity.

This is on now and really good with retrospectives from 5 of the 6 housemates, including Jack Dee who for 22 years has generally blocked footage being officialy shown (but he's always said he'd permit it for Comic Relief purposes). A few words from production too, and new narration from Marcus Bentley who is generally more in 2001 mode - but slips into fake Marcus here and there.
