Big Brother 2007 (or Big Brother 8) was the eighth series of the British reality television series Big Brother. It was shown on Channel 4. Some other, related programmes were shown on E4. The series was hosted by Davina McCall. It began on 30 May 2007, and ended 94 days later on 31 August 2007. Ratings for this series were very low compared to other series.
On the first night of the show, all the housemates who entered were female. Male housemates were sent in later, at intervals over the first two weeks. Another five housemates (three females, and two males) entered the house on the 59th day. In total, there were 22 housemates in total in this series of Big Brother.
The series was eventually won by housemate Brian Belo. He won £100,000.

Notes[change | change source]
- Amanda & Sam originally entered the House as individual Housemates. They accepted an offer from Big Brother on Day 69 to become a joint Housemate for the remainder of the series.
- Seány, Carole and Jonathan had to choose one of their fellow Housemates to receive what they believed to be the £100,000 prize fund on Day 22. They chose Liam and he was awarded £100,000 separate from the eventual winner of the series.
- Chanelle returned to the House as a guest not eligible to win on Day 89 as part of a task. She was allowed to remain in the House after the task, but as she broke a rule of discussing the outside world, she was asked to leave the house immediately.
