Big Brother 2023 start date rumours

Big Brother will start on ITV2 in autumn 2023, it’s been claimed.

The new series will air nightly for six weeks on ITV2 and new streaming service ITVX.

It was previously reported that the show would launch in Spring 2023, likely in March.

But it’s now claimed show bosses have pushed the premiere back to autumn 2023.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “ITV wants to make sure Big Brother gets the fanfare it deserves and the space it needs in the scheduling to flourish.


“It will be given a prominent spot in Autumn and will air on both ITV2 and ITVX to give it a bigger launch platform.”

Further details about the reboot, including a host, are also still to be announced.

It was recently reported that ITV were planning to construct a brand new Big Brother house, likely in a London location, to film the series.

When it first launched in 2000 on Channel 4, Big Brother was filmed at a house in Bow, London before moving to a new custom-built home at at Elstree Studios, Borehamwood in 2002.

The series continued to film there through to its most recent series in 2018 on Channel 5 before the building was demolished.

Meanwhile applications to be a housemate in the new series are expected to open soon.

For now, watch this space!


A previously released teaser for the revival reads “The action will all play out under the roof of the iconic Big Brother house, which will be given its own contemporary new look ready for this reimagining of the show.

“Clever tasks, nail-biting nominations and live evictions will be back, with the public once again playing a crucial role, voting throughout the series and ultimately determining the winner, who will walk away with a life changing cash prize.”
