Davina McCall has claimed that this year's Big Brother showed the programme at its best.
The host told Heat that she was "feeling very nostalgic at the moment" about the show, which is due to leave Channel 4 after next year's series.
McCall said: "BB went back to basics this year and I've really enjoyed it. There were no secret rooms or complications. It was Big Brother at its best.
"I loved it when the old Big Brother housemates went into the house, particularly when Rex, in an alpha male way, gave Marcus a pat on the head as if he were a small boy."
She added: "Even though the rule-breaking meant the housemates lost the prize fund, I have to say I've enjoyed their slightly rebellious streak this year.
"The new housemates going in was a real highlight. I think the five we had going in were the best 'new' housemates we've ever had. Never before have new housemates caused such a stir in the house."
