Big Brother is set to return to TV screens some time later in 2023 after ITV bought the rights to the show last year. The broadcaster confirmed it will air on ITV2 which has found success with other reality shows such as Love Island.

Big Brother was last broadcast by Channel 5 in 2018 as viewing figures dwindled. The show originally aired on Channel 4 and was hosted by Davina McCall and ran for 11 seasons on that network.

Rylan has his own history with Big Brother having appeared in the celebrity version in 2013. He ended up winning the show, beating out the likes of former football Neil "Razor" Ruddock, Steps singer Claire Richards, jockey Frankie Dettori and EastEnders star Gillian Taylforth.

Rylan announced he was leaving Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two this morning on Twitter, writing: "After 4 fantastic years it's time for me to hangup my glittery jacket and say goodbye to It Takes Two."

He went on to praise his two co-hosts, Zoe Ball and Janette Manrara: "I've had the best time hosting alongside Janette and Zoe and I can't thank the amazing team enough for always putting on a great show. I've been welcomed into the Strictly family and will firmly hold that title dear to me.

"The time has come for me to pass on the baton to someone else and explore what else life has for me. Thank you Strictly, you will always have my heart...and my dancing feet."
