We finally know when Big Brother is coming back to our screens

So close.

As we all know by now, Big Brother is set to make a comeback on our screens, and now it looks like we finally have a date.

Set to be moving from Channel 4 to ITV2, the reality series is coming in early 2023 and was announced during the Love Island final this year.

Broadcast has since reported that the new series is set to hit our screens in March of next year.

We'll get to see a whole bunch of new housemates making themselves comfortable in the TV home for six weeks as cameras watch everything.

And one thing we can definitely expect is drama, as any other Big Brother series has shown us but this time around, they're going for a new look and reimagining the show.

While no host has been announced, Longford's very own Maura Higgins' name has been thrown around quite a lot.

Previous hosts Davina McCall and Emma Willis have both said they would not be interested in hosting once again.

After rising to stardom on Love Island in 2019, the 31 year old is now in the running to host the upcoming series as ITV is looking for "homegrown ITV talent".

Producers are reportedly saying that the Longford native has the "warmth" to interview each housemate but also has the ability to "hold the show together."

"Producers are determined to distance themselves from former Big Brother names but the former favourite, Mo Gilligan, is now busy in the States," a source told The Sun.

"Now bosses are looking at female stars who have the strength to hold the show together, while also the warmth to gently quiz contestants in the way that Davina McCall and Emma Willis did so well.

"Maura is a homegrown ITV talent who has all that - plus of course looks great on screen."
