Plenty of Rylan’s followers took to the replies to speculate over what his tweet could mean.

“Is it wrong that I’m zooming in on the pic to get a clue of where you are to see if it’s a Big Brother meeting,” one tweeted.

“Is this a tease for new BBUK?” another asked.

Oh please let it be so. Emma and Rylan were great together,” a third replied. 

“We need some Big Brother UK news. I don’t think I can handle any more teasing accidental or not,” another wrote.

“Lovely photo. When BB returns, I hope you are both presenting it,” a fifth said.

Why was Big Brother axed?

After seven years on Channel 5, Big Brother UK was axed back in 2018.

Despite being one of the most-watched shows on the channel, the show failed to return to screens after its nineteenth series.

Channel 5 decided to axe the show after they failed to reach an agreement with the production company, Endemol Shine.

“Whilst disappointed not to reach an agreement with Channel 5, the decision opens up a new chapter and we are excited about future possibilities for Big Brother in the UK,” Endemol said in a statement at the time.

Whilst the UK version of the show hasn’t been on screens for four years, other countries still air their versions of it.

Most recently, Big Brother Australia aired in the UK earlier this year.
