BIG BROTHER: ITV CONFIRMS THE RETURN OF LIVE FEED FOR REBOOT

ITV and Initial (part of Banijay UK) have confirmed that Live Feed will return for the new series of Big Brother, accompanying the show Sunday-Friday. AJ Odudu and Will Best will host the live evictions and the nightly companion show.



The pair will share the iconic hosting role on the main show, presiding over the weekly evictions and quizzing housemates on all of the goings on in the world’s most famous house. The duo will also host an additional nightly live show debating all the hot topics inside the house.



There will be three ways to watch:

  • ITV2 and ITVX will broadcast the show Sunday to Friday from 21:00 till 22:00

  • It’s got a sibling show, running straight after the main show at 22:00 also presented by AJ and Will as they review the evening’s show with an excited live audience of Big Brother fans

  • And for the mega fan, ITVX will broadcast a live stream from the house - 2 hours a night, every night - so they can watch the contestants going about their everyday business.



AJ said: “I’m so excited to finally be able to say that, yes: I’m hosting Big Brother! I couldn't be happier. Following in the footsteps of some of my favourite broadcasting legends to front such an iconic show is an absolute honour - and to do it alongside my amazing friend Will is the icing on the cake.”

Will said: “I grew up with Big Brother so getting a chance to host it with my mate AJ is a dream come true. I can't wait to tell some housemates not to swear.”


A new cast of carefully selected housemates, from all walks of life, will take up residence in the world’s most famous reality TV home for up to six weeks, with cameras capturing their every move, and the nation following every twist and turn.



The action will all play out under the roof of the iconic Big Brother house, which will be given its own contemporary new look ready for this reimagining of the show. The studio will be located at London's Garden studios.



Clever tasks, nail-biting nominations and live evictions will be back, with the public once again playing a crucial role, voting throughout the series and ultimately determining the winner, who will walk away with a life changing cash prize.


Paul Mortimer, Director of Reality Commissioning for ITV2 and ITVX, said “AJ and Will really are our perfect pairing as we prepare to reintroduce Big Brother to the next generation. With a genuine chemistry, both of them will bring effortless wit, charm and heaps of character to their roles and we’re delighted to be working with them both again.”


Natalka Znak, CEO of Remarkable Entertainment, Initial and Znak TV, added: “It’s an all-new Big Brother on a new channel and with new hosts. AJ and Will are fresh, with bags of talent, and a real passion for this iconic show. It’s going to be such fun having them at the helm.”



Produced by Initial (part of Banijay UK) Big Brother first launched on UK screens in 2000.
