A third even begged: “If Big Brother announces it’s coming back it would make 2020 worth all the pain we’ve been though 🙌.

No pressure there, Ry.

How long was Big Brother on screens for?

Big Brother first launched on Channel 4 in 2000.

Davina McCall hosted the fly-on-the-wall reality series – which included celebrity specials – for 10 years.

The programme moved to Channel 5 in 2011 and was instead presented by Emma Willis.

Rylan began hosting BB’s spin-off Bit On The Side in 2015 and remained in the job until Big Brother was scrapped in 2018.

In June this year, he and Davina, 53, returned to present a special mini-series celebrating 20 years of Big Brother.

Big Brother’s Best Shows Ever looked back at the most iconic BB and CBB episodes.

Fans saw Chantelle Houghton and Preston from The Ordinary Boys falling in love all over again.

Viewers were also able to rewatch Jackie Stallon’s incredible entrance to CBB in 2005.

Following the anniversary show’s success, Davina told HuffPost: “TV is in such turmoil at the moment, as far as what’s going to be made and what’s not going to be made.

“I’ve got no idea if there are any plans on the table for Big Brother, all I know is that I loved presenting that show with Rylan.”
