Rylan Clark-Neal has vowed to bring Big Brother back to TV for 2019.

After 18 years on UK telly, Big Brother concluded its last ever series in November.

It was Cameron Cole who won Big Brother's final season in 2018l, taking home the £100,000 cash prize. In the final, he beat Akeem Griffiths while Zoe Jones finished third and Cian Carrigan ranked in fourth.

Before the launch of the previous series, Channel 5 announced it would no longer air the show in 2019.

However Bit On The Side's Rylan has announced his new year's resolution is to bring the series back within the next twelve months.

He declared on Twitter: "Cheers everyone. Happy New Year. Thanks for another bonus year for this X factor reject. Can’t thank yous enough. My resolution.... to bring back @bbuk and TRUST ME. I’ll do it. Love yous. Here’s to 2019 xxxx 🥳🍻🥂"

As he welcomed the start of January, when Celebrity Big Brother would usually be about to start, Rylan added: "It just don’t feel right without Big Brother x"

Rylan, who won the Celebrity series after rising to fame on The X Factor previously took aim at the decision to drop the show.

Comparing Big Brother to more 'structured reality shows' like Love Island, Rylan said: "Big Brother is the only real reality show left."

He told The Sun newspaper: “We don’t tell them what to do. They do what they do themselves. All we ask them to do is take part in tasks. We don’t tell them, ‘Can you just move to the right and say that again?’. We don't do that.

“And why the f*** would you want to take the only real reality show on the telly off the telly, I do not know.”

Rylan added: "It's a massive part of my life and I know it can be even better with the right TLC. I'd do everything in my power to make sure CBB and the civilian BB are still on the air.

"I will fight to the death to make sure it never goes away. If I had the money and owned the channel, I would buy the programme and film it in my garden."
