The Big Brother house has a brand new home, as the global television phenomenon makes its much anticipated return to UK television and moves onto ITV2 and ITVX from 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.
Produced by Initial (part of Banijay UK) Big Brother first launched on UK screens in 2000. 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.
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.
The Daily Star reports that former Big Brother's Bit On The Side host is the new favourite to host the ITV2 reboot. A source told the paper: "AJ has had advanced talks with producers about the new series. The meetings have gone really well and it’s looking promising. ITV are considering a few different stars, but at the moment AJ is considered the frontrunner."
Paul Mortimer, Director of Reality Commissioning & Acquisitions and Controller, ITV2, ItvBe & CITV “This refreshed, contemporary new series of Big Brother will contain all the familiar format points that kept viewers engaged and entertained the first time round, but with a brand new look and some additional twists that speak to today’s audience...
"We’re beyond excited to bring this iconic series to ITV2 and ITVX where it should especially engage with our younger viewers.”
