It's not long until Big Brother is BACK. We know it feels like we have been saying that for about a year but this time we truly mean it. Also, we have been saying that for about a year, but that's ITVs doing.

A new trailer for the revamped ITV series was recently released and it features new BB hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best being interrupted by the iconic voice of Marcus Bentley followed by the suspenseful and weirdly haunting Big Brother theme tune.

We know it gave you goosebumps as well.

One person who is all too familiar with the techno tune and dulcet tones of Marcus is Big Brother finalist, Mikey Hughes.

Chatting to The Ardossan Herald, the Big Brother 9 runner-up revealed how he feels about the show's return and THAT haunting theme song.

"I’ve not slept, you wouldn’t believe it, but the theme tune, it just sends a shiver up your spine," Mikey revealed.

Mikey didn't hold back when asked about what advice he would give to this year's contestants.

"I would honestly say, guys, just don’t do it. Don’t do Big Brother next year. That’s the best advice I could give."

Well, it's a bit late now for this year's housemates as Big Brother will be back on our screens next month.
