Former Big Brother Little Brother presenter Emma Willis has she is "extremely excited" about the return of Big Brother on Channel 5 this summer - but said it wouldn’t be her fronting the show. Despite being the favourite to present the new series, Emma said she had no plans to join the programme on Channel 5.

"I can't quite express how extremely excited I am at the return of [Big Brother]," the telly host said, adding: "It's gonna be like Christmas that last 3 months! Then it really will be Christmas! 2 christmas's back to back. That's what I'm talkin bout! [sic]"

In a change from the normal Channel 4 schedule, this year the reality megahit will air in the autumn rather than the summer. A four week long celebrity series is expected in August followed by an epic 13-week-long 'normal' show directly afterwards airing from September.

Meanwhile Emma put doubts on the rumours suggesting she'd be hosting the show, telling fellow presenter Leigh Francis that she didn't have any knowledge of becoming the presenter of the new series.
