'Big Brother' is set for a return next year.

Five years after Channel 5 axed the reality TV show, ITV2 is set to bring it back in autumn 2023.

A source told The Sun's Bizarre TV column: "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 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."

ITV bosses are considering broadcasting the show in the autumn, after the summer season of 'Love Island' has aired.

Rylan Clark, 33, is said to be in contention to host the revamped show.

'Big Brother' first ran from 2000 to 2010 on Channel 4, before Channel 5 relaunched it in 2011.

Former hosts include Davina McCall, Brian Dowling and Emma Willis.
