Big Brother is back, and tbh, thank goodness our reality telly overlords – ITV – are churning out reality shows all-year round these days. Love Island: All Stars has only just wrapped and now we've only got a few days to hold out before Celebrity Big Brother debuts and no doubt becomes our freshest obsession. And a huge degree of that obsessive behaviour will, no doubt, be directed towards the show's hosts Will Best (and his distracting, yet subtle chest hair) and icon of icons AJ Odudu, who have both signed on to host once again after the success of Big Brother 2023.

Thank f**k, tbh, because Maya Jama won't be slow-mo walking into the Love Island villa again until the summer and we need a new presenter queen to do queen things for us subjects to marvel over.

Prior to Big Brother's reboot in October 2023, after months of speculation, AJ said, “I’m so excited to finally be able to say that, yes: I’m hosting Big Brother! I couldn't be happier. Following in the footsteps of some of my favourite broadcasting legends to front such an iconic show is an absolute honour - and to do it alongside my amazing friend Will is the icing on the cake.”
