He said: "After 6 years working on one of the most iconic shows on television I'm saddened to hear the news Big Brother won't be returning".
With their identity being kept under wraps the only clue viewers have is that "the carer" from Halifax will be appearing on Channel 5 tonight and entering the house.
Last year's series finale had just 1.1 million viewers.
Celebrity Big Brother and Big Brother have both been axed and will not return after this year, Channel 5 has confirmed.
It was revealed recently by Deadline that Channel 5 was set to bring popular US TV show The Bachelor to a British audience, as a rival to ITV2's Love Island.
Alongside a teaser clip, the post said: 'The forthcoming series of Big Brother will be the last - of either celebrity or civilian versions - on Channel 5'.
The announcement follows the conclusion of the recent series of Celebrity Big Brother, which was beset with controversy from the start.
"We'd like to thank Endemol and all of the production team who have worked tirelessly to make the show a success", Channel 5 added. "Whilst disappointed not to reach an agreement with Channel 5 the decision opens up a new chapter and we are excited about future possibilities for Big Brother in the United Kingdom".
However, it remains unclear if another broadcaster could pick up the rights to "Big Brother", as Channel 5 did when Channel 4 made the decision to drop the show.
"We'd also like to thank our brilliant presenters - Emma on Big Brother and Rylan from Bit on the Side - for their consummate professionalism, Marcus, the voice of Big Brother and all of the housemates who have created so many memorable moments", the statement continued.
Big Brother producers said they were "disappointed not to reach an agreement" with Channel 5 over the continuation of the reality show.
"Bit On The Side" presenter Rylan Clark-Neal has also issued his own statement on Twitter, saying he will be "forever grateful" to the show, which he participated on as a celebrity contestant in 2013, prior to hosing the spin-off show.
Speaking in a video clip shared on the Big Brother Twitter page, she began: "Yay!"
