Auditions for the new series of reality show Big Brother have opened and producers have said they are particularly keen to find contestants from Northern Ireland.

Presented by Emma Willis, the Channel 5 programme is due to return in the summer.

It follows the success of Celebrity Big Brother last month, which was won by Australian drag queen and singer Courtney Act.

Bosses say they want to meet with people from Northern Ireland who are "motivated, with interesting perspectives that will challenge and inspire the other housemates and viewers".


Creative Director, Paul Osborne, said: “We are looking for stand out personalities who may be inspirational to our viewers, who have something to talk about and will spark discussion both inside and outside of the House.

"We are searching all over the UK and Ireland for the best housemates leaving no stone unturned, including Northern Ireland.”
