ITV bosses ‘eyeing some of the BBC’s most popular shows’

OHMYGOSSIP — ITV bosses are reportedly plotting a move to snatch some of the BBC’s most popular shows.
Hit programmes such as ‘MasterChef’, ‘Pointless’ and ‘Peaky Blinders’ are all being eyed by the broadcaster, which wants to buy Endemol Shine.
The company – which is valued at around £3 billion – is responsible for some of the most popular shows on British TV, including ‘Big Brother’, which was axed by Channel 5 last week.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: “The BBC and other channels will be watching closely.
“They might lose some of their key shows. And ‘Big Brother’ might find a new place on ITV now.”
ITV made a similar move in 2015, when the broadcaster splashed out £355 million to buy Talpa Media, the production company behind ‘The Voice’.
The buyout eventually led to the show making the switch from the BBC to ITV.
Rumours of ITV’s interest in Endemol Shine have emerged shortly after Sky and Channel 4 both insisted they have no plans to acquire ‘Big Brother’.
When asked whether it would ever air ‘Big Brother’ again, Channel 4 – which dropped the show in 2009 – insisted that it will not be back on the channel.
A message on Channel 4’s Twitter account read: “Hi there, there are no intentions to air #BigBrother on Channel 4 again. (sic)”
And replying to a Twitter user, Sky’s account recently said: “Good Afternoon, there are no plans for Sky One to show Big Brother I’m afraid. (sic)”
