ITV has teased some major details of the new Big Brother series ahead of its reboot.

After a five-year hiatus, the broadcaster confirmed that the reality show would be getting a comeback as it finds a home on ITV2 and the new streaming platform ITVX next year.

Viewers will remember that the first programme started on Channel 4 in 2000 and stayed on there for 10 years before moving over to Channel 5 from 2011 to 2018.

The reboot will introduce a "new cast of carefully selected housemates, from all walks of life" as cameras catch their every move for up to six weeks, ITV has said.

Details of new Big Brother series released before 2023 return

Since the initial announcement, there have been very few updates released about the new Big Brother - until now. 

ITV has revealed that the new series will have 36 episodes which will include 34 highlights shows and a 90-minute launch and final, according to TV Zone.

It also reports that there will be a spin-off show that will air six nights a week after every main show which will air from Sunday to Friday.

In the initial press release, ITV said: "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."

Big Brother's coming back but I just want to let you know that it's not coming back with me. I think everyone could tell because it's going to be very refreshed and a completely new thing.

"It's going to come back new and exciting. I hope they keep Marcus. I think he is the voice of Big Brother. I can't wait to see what they do with it."

With Davina out of the running, there have been a few famous faces that have been tipped to take over including Strictly spin-off host and former Celebrity Big Brother winner Rylan Clark as well Capital FM DJ Roman Kemp.
