ITV have today confirmed further details surrounding the revival of Big Brother, which is set to air on ITV2 & ITVX this Autumn.
In a post on the broadcasters media website which is aimed at advertisers teases the show going back to its original winning formula with a few modern twists – It is hoped that the show will be the most talked about this Autumn in the run up to Christmas.
Coming this October, the new series, hosted by AJ Odudu and Will Best will run for 36 episodes, over 6 nights a week. Episodes will air in the 9pm-10pm slot on ITV2, Sunday to Friday.
A brand new companion show will air straight after the main show at 10pm, also presented by AJ and Will as they review the evening’s show with an excited live audience of Big Brother fans.
The broadcaster also confirmed that for Big Brother superfans, a dedicated live stream from the house will air every night on ITVX for 2 hours.
The iconic Big Brother live feed is considered one of the most fundamental aspects of the Big Brother format, with viewers being able to watch the housemates every move.
Whilst it is dissapointing that we will only be getting 2 hours of live streaming per day, the news is a stark contrast to Channel 5 who decided againt showing any form of feed for a number of series.
Big Brother returns to screens after a 5 year hiatus this October & November on ITV2 & ITVX.
