Courtney Act talks about the show Celebrity Big Brother
Courtney Act was a winner of the penultimate series of the show and it was later revealed that the show is canceled by Channel 5. Talking about it, Courtney had said:
“I did notice every time Emma Willis said, ‘This is the last series of Big Brother… on Channel 5’.
“I don’t know if that means it’s going to go somewhere else or if it’s just going to be the end of it. It’s a really great social experiment so I don’t know how they could change it.”
“I think one thing that happened in my season is that people were almost surprised that the excitement and attention didn’t have to come from fights and arguments.
“People really seemed to enjoy conversations and nuanced conversations about topics that might not have been their own like gender and sexuality and women’s issues, and that was really heartwarming. It felt like a really cool thing to be a part of.”
