An edited version of each Celebrity Big Brother daily highlights show on Channel 5 will repeat twice each weekday the following day after each show, at 14:00 and 19:00. A weekend version will run at 18:00 on Saturday and Sunday.
This arrangement began last night, when the 16th season of the show got underway. This follows a deal Viacom International Media Networks has struck with producer and rights holder Endemol Shine Group.
Since Viacom swooped to buy Channel 5 for £450 million mid-way through last year, it has focused on content-sharing initiatives for Channel 5 with VIMN nets such as MTV and Nickelodeon UK.
This included the joint commission of reality series 10,000BC, which will air on Channel 5 and MTV. In November, Channel 5 aired the MTV European Music Award to record local numbers.
