Big Brother stars 'fear for their jobs if TV bosses re-air some of the show's steamiest moments'

Big Brother bombshells including Michelle Bass and Makosi Musambasi are reportedly fearing the prospect of their raciest moments being aired on TV again.

Sources have claimed some of the show's stars are concerned that Channel 4 may re-air some of their steamy moments in a special to celebrate the show's 20th Anniversary later this summer.

Since their infamous stints in the BB house, many of the show's stars have gone onto find work in other areas, with the series eventually being axed for good by Channel 5 in 2018.

Worries: Big Brother bombshells including Michelle Bass (pictured 2010) are reportedly fearing the prospect of some their raciest moments seeing the light of TV once again

A source told The Sun many of Big Brother's stars have formed a WhatsApp group to try and prevent producers from re-airing their infamous appearances in the house.

The insider said: 'The idea of those scenes being replayed now is a nightmare as many of them have respectable jobs and families.

'All the housemates knew what they were signing up for but as it was so long ago, those who shied away from the spotlight have moved on with their lives.

'Some have even changed their names and appearance so they aren't recognised.' 

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Channel 4 for comment.

Makosi, 39, proved to be one of Big Brother's most divisive housemates, and sparked outrage in 2005 when she appeared to enjoy a steamy romp with eventual winner Antony Cotton in the pool, who denies they had sex.

She is still active on social media and reportedly now works as a nurse, according to the publication.

Michelle, 39, also made headlines with her house stint in 2004, appearing to have sex with Stuart Wilson under a table, though neither have confirmed this.

Both beauties returned to the house for Ultimate Big Brother in 2010, which was thought to be the show's big send-off before it was picked up by Channel 5.

Other infamous stars include Emma Greenwood, 36, who is now thought to work in admin, and was at the centre of the iconic Fight Night in 2004, and 2012's Aaron Frew, 29, who now works as a model. 

It comes after Channel 4 announced earlier this month that former Big Brother host Davina McCall and Bit On The Side presenter Rylan Clark-Neal would look back at some of the show's biggest moments.

Big Brother: Best Shows Ever Show, will allow E4 audiences to get their reality fix for the summer revisiting some of the juiciest, most memorable Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother episodes.

Davina, who filmed from her home during lockdown, said: 'I lived and breathed Big Brother for 11 years of my life. I didn't miss one single episode.

'Not one week goes by when I don't quote Big Brother in some form. It made me laugh, it made me cry and most importantly it taught me to never judge a book by its cover. 

'I love the show with all of my heart and can't wait to share it with a whole new audience. And of course, all you diehard fans out there...It's good to be back. Big Brother's missed you.'

Rylan, who presented Big Brother Bit On The Side and starred in the celebrity version of the show, added: 'After being off air for nearly two years I'm so excited to be bringing some much-needed Big Brother back to our lives. 

'Over the years Big Brother has brought ground breaking television moments for many reasons, but now so more than ever whilst we're all playing the role of housemates, let's go back and rewind the clock to some of our favourite ever episodes. 

'There will be laughs, tears and drama, but most of all we get to relive some of Big Brother's greatest episodes.'  

When Big Brother first hit screens in 2000, the entire country was captivated by the ins and outs of a group of strangers locked in a bolthole while watched at all hours by cameras and given tasks. 

Here we look back on some of the most memorable moments: 

Season One - 2000

Shocker: Craig Phillips from Seaforth, Merseyside. A staggering 3.5million people voted for the Liverpudlian builder to win

Prize fund: £70,000 

Winner: Craig Phillips from Seaforth, Merseyside. A staggering 3.5million people voted for the Liverpudlian builder to win. The then 28-year-old donated his eye-watering prize fund to his best friend's cousin, Joanne Harris. At the time, he said: 'I thought my time was up every week. I was more nervous in the nominations than coming out tonight... Joanne needs a heart and lung transplant and they won't put her on the waiting list in England'  

Stand-out moment: Big Brother's inaugural series captivated the nation due to the then-unheard of 'social experiment' style compound. As viewers continued to be enthralled with the season, the behaviour of Nick Bateman was the most shocking. The city broker won the nickname Nasty Nick after he attempted to cheat in the game and pass notes between contestants to sway nominations. He was confronted by eventual winner Craig.

Shock: School teacher Penny Ellis came under fire in the outside world after she was seen showering in the nude on-screen

Season Two - 2001

Prize fund: £70,000

Winner: Brian Dowling. Arguably one of the most successful stars of the show, the Irish former flight attendant has gone on to win huge success on TV, scoring huge presenting gigs, voiceover work and his own show Brian's Boyfriends. He is currently the host of The Real Housewives Of Cheshire reunion show. 

Stand-out moment: School teacher Penny Ellis came under fire in the outside world after she was seen showering in the nude on-screen. Her headteacher, Cauthar Tooley, of the all-girl Sarah Bonnell secondary school in Stratford, east London, said: 'If she chooses to behave in a lewd manner she will have made the choice to leave the school. I told her that she would have to maintain certain professional standards. 

She is well aware of that responsibility. I gave her all the advice I could. But obviously now that she is inside the house I can't do any more. It may be that she has decided to go down the road of enhancing her career in other directions.' 

In 2012, she spoke about the incident saying: 'I can't believe the reaction. I was just messing around because I was tipsy, but it never actually touched me. On Big Brother they want you to go crazy so give you loads of alcohol. And drinking makes me behave like a completely different person. So I just put the bottle between my legs, ran into the garden and did it again. I know I didn't even lift up my nightie. I didn't have sex in the pool or in the house, but everyone's labelling me as the slapper.'

- Maxwell Ward was given a warning by Big Brother for throwing a glass of water over co-star Kemal Shahin's head. Further adding to the controversy surrounding the hopeful, he caused mass disgust in the public when he claimed to have put scabs into Kieron 'Science' Harvey's food.

Here he is! Pete Bennett. The lovable winner had originally auditioned for the fifth season of Big Brother but failed to get through

Season Seven - 2006 

Prize fund: £100,000

Winner: Pete Bennett. The lovable winner had originally auditioned for the fifth season of Big Brother but failed to get through. The star, who suffered with Bennett's Tourette's syndrome, was the bookies favourite throughout and eventually won with 61.2% of the final vote 

Stand-out moment: Outrageous star Nikki Grahame entered the house in a pink Playboy bunny outfit and became one of the most temperamental stars to ever grace the show. Her temper tantrums were legendary, ranging from her claims that the air-con was like a blizzard and a rant about an MP3 player. The most memorable however was her attack on Susie Verrico, after the latter put her up for eviction. 

She launched the venomous rant: 'I'm feeling very venomous and angry. How dare she vote for me, she doesn't even know me. What have I f***ing done?... She's just marched in in her golden gown and just ousted me out, and it's not fair! Who is she? Who is she? Who is she? Where did you find her?'

Winner, winner! Brian Belo. The Essex-native was famed for his ditzy attitude and lovable nature - which eventually landed him 60.3% of the final vote

Season Eight - 2007

Prize fund: £100,000 

Winner: Brian Belo. The Essex-native was famed for his ditzy attitude and lovable nature - which eventually landed him 60.3% of the final vote. He left the house and later became involved in a messy legal battle as he claimed he was the brains behind the original concept for ITV2 hit The Only Way Is Essex. 

Stand-out moment: Emily Parr, then-19, was ejected from the house in the early hours of the morning for using the N-word. Emily meanwhile, was removed from the house at 3.30am on 7 June 2007 after she was heard to use the racial slur to housemate Charley Uchea while they were chatting in the garden hours before, as she said: 'Are you pushing it out, [N-word]?'

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

Season 18 - 2017

Prize fund: £65,000

Winner: Isabelle Warburton from Warrington. The lovable star departed the house on the final day with 52.71%.

Stand-out moment: Ex On The Beach star Kayleigh Morris was kicked out of the house for making 'violent threats' against fellow EOTB alumni Chanelle McCleary yet after leaving the show she stood by her behaviour.

Having touched on her removal from the Channel 5 show, in an epic Instagram outburst, she went on to lash out at producers for the way in which she was edited, while also slamming the acts of Geordie Shore cast members and the general culture of reality TV.

Chanelle and Kayleigh had clashed with each other in a conversation about Ellie Young, with Chanelle smashing Kayleigh's glass in front of her. Her actions prompted Kayleigh to jump on the defence.

She threatened to 'grab a sharp object' and 'smash' Chanelle with it, after which she was ejected from the house on Big Brother's no tolerance rule on violence. Chanelle, meanwhile, had been given a formal and final warning by Big Brother.
