Grande Fratello VIP (also abbreviated as GFVIP) is the version of the Grande Fratello television program where competitors are well-known characters (VIP), divided equally between men and women, who share daily life shot 24 hours a day by a series of cameras .
The fourth edition of the Grande Fratello VIP, the twentieth overall of the Grande Fratello format, was broadcast live from 8 January to 8 April 2020 on Canale 5 with the conduct of Alfonso Signorini, with Pupo (in all episodes except the eleventh) and Wanda Nara (the latter for the first fifteen episodes and in connection for the final) in the role of commentators.
The events of the competitors were broadcast by Canale 5 in the early evening, while the transmission of the daily strips in the day-time is entrusted to Canale 5 and to Italy 1. In addition, the live broadcast was visible on La5 in certain time slots and on Mediaset Extra live from 9:00 to 6:00 the following day and streaming on Mediaset Play with two dedicated directories; this was the first edition characterized by the fact of having two live broadcasts per week instead of one, thus accelerating the dynamics of the nominations and eliminations.
With a total of 29 competitors it was the VIP edition with the highest number of participants. Furthermore, with 92 days, it was the longest VIP edition of all; however, in February an extension until April 27 had been decided and formalized, which would have led to a duration of 111 days, but due to the pandemic of COVID-19 which hit Italy hard, the originally scheduled duration was subsequently restored.
