AutoNews- Celebrity Big Brother is said to be facing the axe, as a leading boss at Channel 5 is keen to ditch the reality series.The network’s Director of Programming Ben Frow has reportedly taken a swipe against the show and insisted he would be ‘much happier’ if Channel 5 were to ditch it going forward.Sharing his thoughts on CBB, Frow suggested he is not so keen on the series, as it is not an original show attributed to Channel 5, as it previously aired on Channel 4 for a decade before moving over.It’s believed the Channel 5 boss is in favour of ‘original content’ that will help to build the identity of the network.According to The Sun, Frow said while speaking at the Edinburgh International Television Festival: ‘I would be much happier with a channel that did not have Big Brother on it.’I don’t want a show from another channel… I want to create our own programmes.’MailOnline have contacted a spokesperson for Celebrity Big Brother, while a spokesperson for Channel 5 said: ‘We are contracted to air Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother for another year. It’s too early to comment on further contracts.’News the popular series hosted by Emma Willis could be given the boot comes after Sarah Harding was crowned the winner of CBB’s 20th series on Friday.She had beaten the likes of Amelia Lily and Sam Thompson, who came in second and third place respectively, to take the title and bag the £50,000 prize fund for her chosen charity Haig Housing.Speaking during her exit interview with Emma Willis, Sarah had expressed her shock over her win, as she said: ‘It’s been a tough ride. I needed a fresh start and a new chapter.’It took me about 10 days to settle in… I’ve been out of the limelight for so long, I thought what better way to integrate again and put myself out there.”I wanted to show that I was more than the lairy one from Girl’s Aloud. It’s made me a stronger person but I am an anxious person,’ she admitted.Sarah had controversially struck up a romance with The Bachelorette star Chad Johnson during her time on the show, despite entering the house with a secret boyfriend.She revealed that she had been dating someone on the outside, who was later revealed to be ‘heartbroken’ plasterer Aaron Lacey, for four weeks, but chose to pursue Chad instead, surprising viewers with her steamy antics with him.Speaking about Chad and her former relationship on the outside, Sarah claimed: ‘I was in a short term relationship, a matter of weeks. What people don’t realise is when you’re in the house it feels longer.’He became my best friend and my rock, and every day is like a month so it felt like a longer time and I had to make a difficult decision.’After what we went through, it couldn’t compare to what I had on the outside briefly, we’d been through the mill together,’ she insisted. ‘We’re going to see what happens, but I would like to see a future with him.’Chad had finished in fifth place during the live final and was evicted alongside the show’s sixth place
