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 Anthony Hutton 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.’
Shocking: The introduction of Jade Goody to UK TV screens was undoubtedly the height of drama. Jade passed away after battling cervical cancer in 2009
Season Three – 2002
Winner: Kate Lawler, from Beckenham, London. After becoming the first female winner of the show with 58.05% of the vote, Kate enjoyed huge success as a DJ (pictured 2002)

After becoming the first female winner of the show with 58.05% of the vote, Kate enjoyed huge success on the outside world as she forged a career as a DJ, glamour model and enjoying further reality work – including an appearance in the original version of Love Island in 2005.
Stand-out moment: The introduction of Jade Goody to UK TV screens was undoubtedly the height of drama. The late Essex girl, who passed away after battling cervical cancer in 2009, captivated and stunned viewers due to her shocking lack of general knowledge. Memorably, she believed Cambridge was in London, and when its positioning in East Anglia was announced, she revealed she believed East Anglia was not in Britain and was pronounced: East Angula.
In 2007, Jade returned to the house in Celebrity Big Brother 5 and became embroiled in one of the most shocking reality TV rows of all time. Jade along with her housemates Jo O’Meara and Danielle Lloyd were accused of racism against their Bollywood actress co-star Shilpa Shetty.
Jade was heard calling the star ‘Shilpa Poppadom’, while Danielle told her to ‘go home’. Such was the backlash against the women, effigies baring Jade’s image were burnt in India and she was evicted from the house with no audience and total oblivion to the horror waiting on the outside.
Season Four – 2003
Prize fund: £70,000
Winner: Cameron Stout, from Stromness, Orkney. The devoutly Christian fish trader earned a whopping 1.9 million votes – 500,000 more than runner-up Ray Shah. He was well-known in the house for revealing he was a virgin and was waiting till marriage to have sex. Many on the outside world branded him ‘a bible basher’.
Stand-out moment: The show was widely-deemed the ‘most boring’ however one of the most memorable moments was Cameron’s involvement in a swap with the Big Brother Africa house. He swapped places with housemate Gaetano Kagwa and then gained immunity from eviction for a period of two weeks.
Season Five – 2004
Prize fund: £63,500
Winner: Nadia Almada, from Ribeira Brava, Madeira, Portugal. The star was the only even transgender winner of Big Brother. She kept her transgender identity as secret from the rest of the house yet viewers were informed. She became a fast favourite and won a huge 74% of the vote. Long-time presenter Davina McCall previously revealed that Nadia was her favourite housemate of all time.
Stand-out moment: The series featured a host of shocking moments, yet none more so than Fight Night. On 17 June, Emma and Michelle Bass re-entered the house after a false eviction landed them in ‘The Bedsit’, where they watched on as their housemates spoke about them. Upon their return, the house became embroiled in a food fight. As arguments escalated, Nadia slapped Jason Cowan.
After this Emma and Victor both threw trays at each other before they were separated when she screamed: ‘I will f*****g kill you’. When the fight kicked off, BB placed guards at the camera runs and while the shocking activities escalated guards were sent into the house via the bedroom, where the were stationed while the stars slept.

While he vowed they never had sex, 48 hours after the moment she claimed she was pregnant with his child. After leaving the house she insisted she believed she was pregnant, however crowds chanted ‘Liar’ at her during the final.
- Kinga Karolczak entered the house late in the series and caused possibly one of the most shocking moments of the entire show. The half Polish, half Kuwaiti market researcher from London left viewers aghast when she famously used a wine bottle as a tool for masturbation in the communal garden.
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.

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?’

Both Charley and Nicky Maxwell, who was also present, were stunned at her use of the word however she swiftly insisted it ‘was a joke’. She was later called to the diary room and told of her ejection by Big Brother.
At the time of Emily’s removal, Head of the Big Brother commissioning team at Channel 4, Angela Jain, said after the incident: ‘In the wake of Celebrity Big Brother, we must consider the potential offence to viewers regardless of Emily’s intentions and her housemates’ response.
‘The word ‘n****r’ is clearly racially offensive and there was no justification for its use. We have removed Emily from the house to once again make it clear to all housemates and the viewers at home that such behaviour won’t be tolerated.’

Prize fund: £100,000
Winner: Rachel Rice, from Pontypool, Wales. The actress and model won the show by an incredibly close 51.3% to her runner-up Michael Hughes. She is now a fully-qualified at Abersychan Comprehensive School.
Stand-out moment: Lisa Appleton and Mario Marconi were the first couple to ever enter the house. They were given a task to hide their relationship however he failed immediately. They sent shockwaves when they involved in some biscuit-based intimate talk – as they memorably used custard creams as a euphemism.
Despite being evicted in week six, Mario Marconi made a sensational return to the house in order to propose to girlfriend and fellow housemate Lisa Appleton. The pair had made history as the first contestants to enter the house as a couple, but competed on the show as separate housemates.
Bodybuilder Lisa was left astounded when Mario proposed on a heart-shaped plinth in the garden, holding up placards with his proposal on whilst she watched on through the windows of the living room. The couple went on to marry the next year, but divorced after two years together.

‘I’m so sorry, that’s all I can say… I’m so sorry Mum, and my friends. I can’t describe how I feel… I can’t believe my journey’s ended like this. It’s really meant so much to me. I’m really so upset.’
