The French version of the international reality television format Big Brother has broadcast in the country since 2001. Unlike most other territories, which use the name Big Brother (or a local equivalent) for their adaptations of the show, France used the name Loft Story for the initial two series of the format, broadcast on M6 in 2001-02, and then Secret Story for a revived version of the format, broadcast on TF1 since 2007. The Loft Story/Secret Story format is also used in Canada (which used Loft Story from 2003 to 2009, Big Brother in 2010 and Secret Story from 2011). In addition, the Secret Story format first used in France has been introduced in the Netherlands (from 2011, five years after the last Big Brother series in the territory) and Portugal (from 2010, seven years after Big Brother ceased in the country).
