'Celeb Hijack' team make last-minute changes
Big Brother: Celebrity Hijack producers have made last-minute changes to the show's format, according to a report.

Fans had expected the E4 series to follow young and "gifted" housemates who are set challenges by celebrity guests - including Jimmy Carr and Matt Lucas - working for Big Brother.

However, following a disappointing guinea pig week, producers have now decided to increase the role of the celebrities. They will now be expected to take part in tasks themselves, and may even be put up for eviction by Big Brother.

"Things haven't gone as well as we thought during the guinea pig week and it was looking like it was going to get a bit dull," a show source told the Daily Star Sunday.

"Now things have been changed around a bit and the new plans make it appear that the show will still be called Celebrity Hijack but will increasingly become more like a normal celeb version of Big Brother as it goes along. There's more changes in the pipeline and there's going to be some shocks this week."

The show kicks off on January 3.
