An all-women version of Celebrity Big Brother is thought to be in the works for January 2018 to celebrate 100 years since women were allowed to vote in the United Kingdom.

Channel 5 bosses are apparently keen to throw everything at their celebrations for the centenary year that women were allowed to vote. The shows producers are on the lookout for the strongest personalities in Showbiz to participate in the series.

A source told The Sun: “Channel 5 wants to make a real splash as part of their women’s vote celebrations.

“They are keen to cast opinionated women like Germaine Greer over no-mark reality TV girls who look good but have little to say or bring to the conversation.

“Bosses are expecting cat fights galore, plenty of tension and clashing personalities.”

Germaine Greer previously participated in the third series of Celebrity Big Brother – she left the house first and became the first ever celebrity housemate to walk just 6 days in to the series.

If this rumour is true, it wouldn’t be the first time Big Brother has thrown a gender based twist.

Series 8 of the ‘civilian’ run began with eleven women spending the first 48 hours in the house together, with men being introduced gradually.

The change, scheduled for January 2018, comes after producer Endemol vowed to refresh the format of the long-running series following the show hitting new ratings lows.
