Big Brother UK is the British version of the Dutch Big Brother television format, which takes its name from the character in George Orwell's 1948 novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. After a decade on air, having left its first home on Channel 4 on 10 September 2010, Big Brother UK moved to Channel 5 and 5* on 18 August 2011 after the channel signed a 2-year contract with Endemol to screen the show. The first series to be broadcast on the channel is the newly re-launched Celebrity Big Brother 2011 which will be followed immediately by Big Brother 2011 with 14 new housemates, all under 30, half male, half female due to enter the house on Friday 9 September 2011 at 9pm. A second series of Celebrity Big Brother will be broadcast on Channel 5 in January 2012.
Dead Set is a critically acclaimed BAFTA-nominated British television horror drama created by Charlie Brooker. The show takes place primarily on the set of a fictional series of the real television show Big Brother. The five episodes, aired over five consecutive nights, chronicle a zombie outbreak that strands the housemates and production staff inside the Big Brother House, which quickly becomes a shelter from the undead.
