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.

Meanwhile, more teasers about this year's series have been revealed.

Rylan went on to tease cryptically: "But is everything as it seems?

"We promise to reflect all aspects of Britain..."
