As per latest media reports, Bigg Boss 17 will reportedly not air in the UK. Yes, you heard that right! This piece of news will be heartbreaking for all BB’s fans in the British country. It is being said that Bigg Boss 17 will not air on Colors TV UK due to right issues, reports Biz Asia Live. The report reads, “This will impact the business of Colors TV UK, which rides high on huge commercial deals when the show airs.” Adding that the broadcaster had already locked a number of sponsorship agreements for ‘Bigg Boss 17’.

The report further states, “According to the EPG, Colors TV UK will now rely on content from the Viacom18 library to fill the coveted gap. On Sunday itself when ‘Bigg Boss 17’ launched in India, the UK broadcaster will air repeats of ‘Desi Beat’ and repeats of ‘Neerja’ and ‘Naagin’. From Monday, it will air the Hindi dubbed version of Colors Kannada show ‘Ramachari’ at 21:00, followed by other fictions.”
