Celebrity Big Brother to return to screens following return of reality series

Big Brother: Matty and Jordan discuss who has left

Celebrity Big Brother will be returning to TV screens in 2024, ITV has announced.

Big Brother made a return to screens this year after the last series aired back in 2018, and fans have enjoyed having the reality show back.

ITV has confirmed next year’s show will see a host of famous faces taking up residence in the iconic house.

A spin-off show called Celebrity Big Brother: Late & Live will follow, where contestants will be interviewed for the first time after their eviction.

Five years ago, Channel 5 said it would no longer continue with either version of Big Brother.

After seven years of producing the often controversial programme, the broadcaster called it a day, much to the disappointment of fans.

ITV confirmed last year that it would be launching a new series of the “civilian” version of the popular show.

Paul Mortimer, director of reality commissioning and acquisitions and controller, ITV2 and ITVBe said: “The reception from our viewers to Big Brother’s return has been fantastic.

“We’re therefore thrilled to announce that we’ll be bringing our very own celebrity edition to ITV1 and ITVX next year.

“Casting is under way to find a new batch of famous faces who are sure to provide more iconic and unmissable BB moments.”

Producer Natalka Znak added: “The launch series on ITV2 has been so much fun to make and we’re glad Big Brother has found a whole new audience on ITV2.

“It’s been a joy working with ITV and we’re excited to do it all over again and this time with celebrities and on ITV1.”

Actor Ryan Thomas won the last series of the celebrity edition of the show, but was embroiled in a scandal after actress Roxanne Pallett claimed he had deliberately hurt her.

Viewers defended this as play-fighting and Thomas was played the clip of the incident during his post-eviction interview, where he told host Emma Willis how scared he had been when the drama unfolded.

Celebrity Big Brother will return to ITV in 2024.
