List of Big Brother UK shows

Big Brother

Big Brother is a daily show, featuring highlights of events that have occurred in the Big Brother House on the previous day. Narrated by Marcus Bentley, it is generally 60 minutes in length if aired at 9pm, and 75 if aired at 10pm. The show is sometimes referred to as the "Channel 4 show", the "catch-up show", the "main show", or the "highlights show". On Fridays it is aired as the first part of the eviction show. There is no title of Big Brother during the opening sequence or after advert breaks, as the Big Brother Eye is expected to be known to most people.Big Brother Eviction

Big Brother Eviction is a two-part show on Fridays from 9pm, presented by Davina McCall. The first 60 minutes of the show are highlights of the previous day, shown in the same format as Big Brother.

The show returns at 10.35pm for half an hour, when the housemate with the largest percentage of the public vote is evicted and interviewed by McCall. At the end of the interview, the evictee is shown their "Time in the house", a compilation of their most memorable moments in the house. As of Big Brother 10, two special guests such as celebrities and psychologists join the evictee, giving their questions and views on how they fared in the Big Brother house.

Eviction shows are often extended if something special is happening that night, such as new housemates, a double eviction, or a secret task. Timings were changed briefly in Big Brother 9 in order to achieve better ratings, however they soon reverted back to normal.
