BoyleSports is offering odds on the canning of reality TV show veteran Big Brother UK after the show announced it will be evicting four housemates on Friday.

The bookmaker states that the Channel 5 show has suffered from decreasing viewing figures and as a result is offering odds of 8/1 that it will be “swiftly cancelled” following the conclusion of this season.

Aoife Heffron, PR executive at BoyleSports, said: “The ratings have been dropping drastically and even as producers scramble to pull dramatic twists in a last ditch attempt to boost them, it may not be enough and looks like our beloved Big Brother could be pulled from our screens next year at 7/4.”

“It’s a Big Brother first to have four housemates evicted at the one time and as Jack used his immunity pass to save himself it means only two can be saved, punters have been steering well clear of Danny and Sarah to be evicted leading us to believe they will live to flirt another day.”

This comes after Viacom brought into doubt Big Brother’s future with company chief Phillipe Daumann last October stating that ‘no show is popular forever’.
