Former Bit on the Side host, Rylan, is tipped to be favourite to host the rumoured Big Brother reboot on ITV2.
Rylan Clark is reportedly favourite to host a reboot of Big Brother on ITV2, leading ahead of former hosts Davina McCall and Emma Willis.
It was reported earlier this week that ITV were in talks with Banijay to get Big Brother back on the air in 2023, with a new civilian edition of the reality juggernaut.
Rylan, who won the eleventh series of Celebrity Big Brother in 2013, went on to host spin-off Big Brother’s Bit on the Side from that summer until its final series in November 2018. Now, the familiar face is ‘favourite’ to host the rebooted Big Brother.
An insider told The Sun: ‘Rylan couldn’t have made it any clearer with his intention – he would love that job.’
‘Those working on the early stages of the production think the same and this role is made for Rylan.’
‘Rylan is really current and has a huge following, plus his love of Big Brother makes him the ultimate fan. There really is no one better placed to take it on.’
The source added that Rylan had put himself front and centre to host the show as soon as rumours appeared that the programme was returning.
Big Brother was initially hosted by Davina McCall throughout its time on Channel 4. While on Channel 5, the show had two hosts, Brian Dowling until 2013 and Emma Willis until 2018.
