Over in the UK, meanwhile, show alum Rylan Clark has called for the main series to return after it was cancelled in 2018, writing on Twitter: "BRING OURS BACK."

The star, who won Celebrity Big Brother back in 2013, previously spoke about what the show meant to him.

"Big Brother was like a child to me – doing Big Brother's Bit on the Side every night became like a lifestyle rather than a job," he told The Mirror.

"Big Brother changed my life completely – a proper 360 – and I miss it dearly and I just think if it was to come back now, it could come back the same but so different now."

Celebrity Big Brother US is set to premiere its third season on February 2.
