ITV have delayed the start date of Big Brother 2023 from Spring to Autumn 2023.
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.
ITV have taken the decision to delay the series from its original planned Spring launch to the Autumn. This is thought to be due to other reality shows airing in the first half of the year, including Love Island.
Speaking to The Mirror, presenter Roman Kemp has revealed that there's been 'talks' about hosting the new series. Speaking to the newspaper, he said: "There have been talks. I’ve always been a huge fan so I’d do my best to do it justice. Davina and I were talking about it the other day. She said I should do it."
ITV told TV Zone: "All suggestions surrounding the host are pure speculation and absolutely no decisions have been made at this early stage."
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.
Produced by Initial (part of Banijay UK) Big Brother first launched on UK screens in 2000. Applications for the series are now open! For more details, click here.
