During an appearance on This Morning last week, she said: “I miss it a lot but I think it takes longer. [off air]. I think it needs a little more rest. ”
She continued: “I think if you go back to the day when it first started and how it swept us all away, it was phenomenal. If it could do it again, and if it did again, I mean, wouldn’t it be awesome? “
She continued: “Everybody wants it back! I think it will come back when it’s ready, maybe it’s not ready yet. If you’re going to do it again, you have to do it brilliantly.
“Hopefully, someone somewhere is coming up with a great plan for it, but I don’t know about it if they have one!”
Meanwhile, Alison recently revealed she almost never appears on Big Brother.
She recalls being offered the chance to appear on another show, telling Heat magazine: “I wanted to do Blind Date, because I wanted to meet Cilla Black and I wanted to meet a celebrity, so I thought , ‘This is a great thing to do.’
“But I also have a debt, and someone said you can win £70K on Big Brother, so I thought, oh that’s a good idea.
“It was weird, because I got both offers at the same time, and I had to pick and choose. I was so naive, I didn’t choose love, I chose money.”
She added: “I always thought, what if I won Big Brother.
“Is my career going in this direction? And I don’t believe that’s going to happen, because the producer of This Morning, who’s seen my best montages, has never seen Big Brother, but just so happens to be.”
