Channel 5 is set to bring live feed back to Big Brother 2013, but this time it will be online.

A nightly live stream will air on the official Channel 5 Big Brother website every night between 11:30PM and 2AM.

A statement from Channel 5 today read:

BB fans can watch the housemates live, nightly from Friday 12th July 2013 between 11:30pm and 2:00am on www.channel5.com, on the Big Brother iPhone and iPad app and on the Big Brother Facebook app. Please note live streaming will commence at midnight during evenings when Big Brother’s Bit On The Side is simulcast at 11:00pm.

The live stream from the house had originally been completely cut when the show moved from Channel 4 to Channel 5 two years ago.

However pressure from fans has seen some limited streaming return, with last year's series featuring live action after evictions and twists.

This year had started to see even more live streaming returning, with an evening two hour instalment airing on 5* every night from 7PM to 9PM, and between 8PM and 9PM on Sunday nights.

But the ratings didn't make for great reading, with lows of just 9,000 viewers tuning it at points, leading to TV chiefs to eventually decide to cut the show.

The live streaming ceased on July 6, replaced by repeats.
