Big Brother 8
eviction cost slashed to 25p
After the Big-Brother celebrity scandal, now
fans of Big Brother 8 are finally getting some good news.
Channel 4 has announced that the cost per call
when voting for the Big Brother 8 will be cut own to 25p. This
way the channel will make no profit from the calls.
The reason behind this decision is to keep the voting “fair and
transparent”, according to Channel 4 representatives. Previously
the channel charged 50p per call and made profit on it, now from
the 25p they will cover their cost and give 10p to charity.
Voting for the Big Brother 8 will be additionally monitored by
an outside law firm to ensure further transparency of the voting

Bad news, however, is the announcement that
people will not be able to vote for Big Brother 8 using a text
message. Channel 4 is saying that the mobile phone operators are
unable to process the text messages in the time frame desired.
Earlier this week aerial photos of the Big
Brother 8 House were rumoured to have been leaked, which show
that the House has two gardens. The pictures made people
speculate that the housemates will be split up, or that another
batch of housemates will live alongside them.
Big Brother 8 will start as
scheduled this week, with the apology airings
for the Celebrity Big Brother racial remarks.
