Davina McCall told the publication: "I lived and breathed Big Brother for 11 years.

"Not one week goes by when I don’t quote Big Brother in some form.

"It made me laugh, it made me cry and it taught me to never judge a book by its cover.

"I love the show and can’t wait to share it with a whole new audience."

And Rylan added: "I’m so excited to be bringing Big Brother back to our lives.

"There will be laughs, tears and drama, but most of all we get to relive some of Big Brother’s greatest episodes."
