The Big Brother 2017 start date will be in June this year, Channel 5 have confirmed.

Not that we were really exactly expecting anything else.

No exact launch date for Big Brother 2017 has been announced but it will be between Saturday, June 3 and Sunday, June 9.

Last year's series started on June 7 however there's the General Election on June 8 which rumour has it could see the launch moved, potentially either later or earlier in the month.

It's been suggested the new series could begin on Sunday, June 4, which would be BBUK's first ever weekend launch.

But for now, we can only speculate.

Meanwhile, Channel 5 have yet to confirm how long the new series of summer's Big Brother will run for.

Last year's show was the shortest yet, coming in at just 50 days, 16 fewer than the previous series and 44 fewer than the longest run to date.

It also remains to be seen where Celebrity Big Brother will slot into everything, with another summer show confirmed for later in the year.

There used to be a few weeks' grace between the two shows, but last year saw CBB begin just two days after the Big Brother final.

What Big Brother has confirmed is that this year will see a VERY British themed show.

"This summer, Big Brother presents a must-watch culture clash of modern Britain," the channel teased in a release this week.

They added: "At a time of political upheaval and tough questions about unity in the UK, Big Brother brings you an alternative look at Britain."

Big Brother 2017 promises to be a "summer of contrasts, conflicts and collaboration… and more fireworks than you could imagine, as a selection of people, from a range of backgrounds, come together in the ultimate social experiment.

"The United Kingdom of Big Brother… and everyone is welcome."
