Default Will Best teases changes to BBUK

New Big Brother host Will Best teases huge change to reality show ahead of ITV reboot

BIG Brother host Will Best has teased a huge change to the reality show ahead of its reboot later this year.

The presenter, 38, was recently announced as the show's brand new co-host alongside AJ Odudu, 35.

Big Brother is moving to a new home at ITV, having originally aired on Channel 4 and then Channel 5.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online in his first interview since landing the gig, Will has teased a big change to the format.

He's revealed the brand new housemates and show will look different to the latter series on Channel 5.

Will said: "Itís going back to being real people."

The former T4 presenter continued: "The great thing about Big Brother is itís entertainment, but entertainment with a bit of everything thrown in.

"The focus of this is itís going to be an entertainment show, but itís going to be fun and funny with all of that emotion and realness that you get with Big Brother."

Casting for the next batch of housemates is still underway with the deadline currently set for the end of June.

Speaking about Channel 5's version of the reality juggernaut, which last aired five years ago, Will said: "Times change, it was the right show for the time I think.

"But now I think itís time for the reality people want to see, which is real people being authentic and thatís where the fun comes."

The Sun previously revealed how the show's reboot was thrown into chaos and production pushed back from Spring to Autumn.

With bosses said to be scrambling to find a new home for Big Brother, the hosts are being kept in the dark.

ďI donít know anything else itís all still being planned, people can still enter [to be a housemate]," Will said.

The Sun were the first to exclusively reveal how Will and AJ, who are best pals, had been picked by ITV to host the reboot.

A source said: ďAJ has known since last year the Big Brother job was hers but sheís been waiting for her co-host to be confirmed.

ďAJ and Will did a brilliant screen test together and their chemistry was brilliant. It was a no brainer. They are great friends too so to be able to work together is really exciting.

ďThey could not be more excited about joining forces to bring back Big Brother.

Davina McCall first presented Big Brother on Channel 4 from 2000 until 2010 before former housemate Brian Dowling took over hosting duties when it moved to Channel 5 the following year.

Side note: If taken at face value, it appears the presenters don't even know where the house will be...
