ITV2 announced last night during the Love Island finale that it was rebooting Big Brother.
The legendary reality series first launched on Channel 4 before moving to Channel 5.
After a few years in its new home, Channel 5 dropped the show for financial reasons.
Viewers have been asking for a comeback for years, and last night their wish was finally granted.
ITV announced Big Brother will air on its channels sometime in 2023.

But while many fans shared their excitement at the news, others were less than happy with the channel’s choice.
With ITV2 already hosting Love Island, some viewers fear Big Brother could become something similar.

“Please, please, please itvI will #Big Brother to get back to basics. A cross section of people. None of those influencer/Love Island bo**ocks,” scolded one viewer.

A fourth added: “I don’t know if anyone cares about Big Brother coming back, but more people would see it if you actually put a mix of different, interesting people in it and not just Love Island hot guys. That’s how all reality shows were ruined. but itv is a good home for it.”
Meanwhile, others fear ITV will use some of its usual batch presenters for the restart.
“So glad BIG BROTHER is back!!! Please bring Rylan and Emma or Divina back. I DON’T want to see fucking Holly Willoughby or Ant and Dec host this shit!!! #Big Brother #ITV“.
A second tweeted: “After hearing that #Big Brother is finally coming back to our TV screens. I ask for it @ITV.. please could @ThisisDavina be that Moderator?”
