Big Brother is back! It's been a long five years, but the reality show that sees housemates thrust in front of cameras 24/7 has finally returned to our screens in a reboot from ITV.

Big Brother first dropped in 2000, with the latest edition being the twentieth season of the long-running social experiment. Originally airing on Channel 4, it moved to Channel 5 in August 2011, before the series ended in 2018.

The reality show helped kickstart the careers of TV presenters including Rylan Clark, Alison Hammond and Josie Gibson. Previously presented by Davina McCall and Emma Willis, the reboot will feature hosts Will Best and AJ Odudu, who will also feature in the spin-off show Big Brother: Late & Live which airs after the main episode.

Former contestant and Big Brother host Rylan Clark will not be returning to the franchise. He recently revealed during an interview with Loose Women that he was “devastated” not to be asked back for the ITV reboot.

Many fans thought they would never see the diary room again, or hear the familiar voice of narrator Marcus Bentley. Here's a round-up of all the live updates of Big Brother 2023.
