“I lived and breathed Big Brother for 11 years,” said Davina, talking to The Sun.

“Not one week goes by when I don’t quote Big Brother in some form.

“It made me laugh, it made me cry and it taught me to never judge a book by its cover.”

Davina continued to say how much she loves the show and can’t wait to introduce it to a new audience.

Rylan added how ‘excited’ he is to bring Big Brother back, saying: “There will be laughs, tears and drama, but most of all we get to relive some of Big Brother’s greatest episodes.”

Series two winner Brian Dowling hosted the main Big Brother show when it first moved to Channel 5, with Emma Willis presenting the spin-off.

Emma then went on to front the main Big Brother show from 2013, with the show remaining on Channel 5 until 2018.

Emma previously spoke out about her hopes that the show will return for good, saying on Lorraine:

“It needed time to have a little break, but maybe one day it will come back. We all miss it, especially in January… It was the celeb version, it filled up January.”
