ITV bosses have promised that the return of Big Brother will feature individuals from all walks of life – and won’t be like Love Island.
Despite Big Brother returning to screens on ITV2, it has been promised that the revival won’t be like its fellow reality format, Love Island, with diverse housemates being selected for the new series.
‘There will be a diverse casting across a range of ages, which is what made Big Brother so special’ claimed a source to The Mirror.
‘It won’t be like Love Island, where the contestants are all young social media influencer types – they want “all walks of life”‘.
The source also claimed that the new series won’t feature any outside influence – meaning housemates in the Big Brother House won’t get a day off from filming like they do on Love Island.
‘It will have everything viewers came to love about the retro series, with nominations, a public vote and live evictions, but they want it to appeal to a new generation,’ they stated.
Big Brother’s infamous rules state that those taking part will be cut off from the outside world for the duration of the series. However, later series of the show broke the rule on numerous occasions for tasks and twists.
Big Brother kicks off on ITV2 and ITVX next year.
