The first Big Brother 2016 promo is being filmed today ahead of next month's launch.

Confirming that he'll be returning to the revamped series - not that we ever doubted it, of course - Marcus Bentley spilled the news last night.

He tweeted: "Off to record the promo for the one and only .....Big Brother tomorrow- can't wait!"

The promo will be filmed a year to day that 2015's series launched, with us getting all ramped up for the first show this time last summer.

That was Big Brother's earliest ever start while this year's show could be the latest opener ever, excluding the first ever series on both Channel 4 and Channel 5.

Show bosses are said to be targeting a launch around two weeks into June although the precise start date will depend on construction od the new Big Brother house.

An extension to the current set, together with a new eviction studio and outdoor staging area, is currently being built.

The physical changes are just part of a major revamp for the new series.

Rylan Clark teased: "Everything's coming very soon. The new look, new treatment, new feel. It's a brand new show this year."
