The show was originally hosted by Davina McCall, and later Emma Willis, but it’s believed that the upcoming series will have Rylan Clark as the main host.

A source told The Sun: “ITV is the home of big appointment telly. They know better than anyone how to put on big live events.

“They think putting it on ITV2 will open it up to a new audience and legion of younger fans.

“They are really keen on getting the deal done on Big Brother, and hope to have something firm to announce soon.”

The source continued: “The talks are still at an early, and delicate, stage and the next few weeks will be key.

“It needs the full treatment and they’re confident they are the ones who can return it to its legendary former glory. It has millions of fans and is one of the most iconic TV shows of its generation.”
