Luisa Zissman Joins 'Big Brother': Reality Star Confirmed As Panelist On New Series, Which Is Inspired By 'The Hunger Games'

Luisa Zissman will be joining the presenting team on the next series of ‘Big Brother’, giving her views on the goings on from inside the house on spin-off series ‘Big Brother’s Bit On The Side’.

Luisa will be offering an insider’s perspective when she joins the team, having finished fourth in the most recent series of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ in January, which was eventually won by comedian Jim Davidson.

She said: “When I was in the house I didn’t hold back… so I will be exactly the same on the panel. I’m really looking forward working with Emma, Rylan and Iain and can’t wait to get to know this year’s new batch of housemates.”

Since leaving the house earlier this year Luisa has shared her controversial opinions on everything from plastic surgery to selfies, and even the untimely death of Peaches Geldof in her weekly newspaper column - so we’re really looking forward to hear what she was to say about the new contestants when they arrive in the house this summer.

Meanwhile, it’s been announced that this year’s series of the reality series - which will be the 15th series overall, and 4th since the show moved to Channel 5 - will have a 'Power Trip' theme that will see the housemates compete against each other for control of the house, taking inspiration from ‘The Hunger Games’.

A show insider told the Daily Star: “‘The Hunger Games’ was about a TV show where young people fought to the death to be victors.

“While we don’t want anyone to actually die, the housemates really will have to be on their toes to fight to stay in the game.

“It will be explosive. They won’t know what’s hit them.”

The ‘Big Brother’ house's interior has been given a futuristic makeover for the new series, which kicks off this June on Channel 5.
