EYE-TV: New Big Brother eye is revealed on ITV2 ahead of reboot 

BIG Brother has unveiled its new eye for the new series on ITV2

The multi-coloured “TikTok” inspired eye was broadcast for the first time to viewers on ITV1, ITV2, ITV3, ITV4 and ITVBe, with the reboot series set to air on ITV2 and ITVX in October.

The revamped eye features fresh designs with cartoon images of lips, heartbreak, a play button, a question mark, and a red x, leading to speculation about upcoming tasks and twists when the new series starts in October hosted by Aj Odudu and Will Best.

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.”

Will added: “I grew up with Big Brother so getting a chance to host it with my mate AJ is a dream come true. I can’t wait to tell some housemates not to swear.”

“I went for a few meetings, went for a screen test and stuff. There were a few other people,” he admitted, without naming names.

“We went in and we basically sort of did the launch show together, and a runthrough of what the after show might be.

“I’ve been sitting on it for a while, and it’s hard to hold that kind of thing in. I have to confess, I did tell my mum. She doesn’t have many contacts in the press!”

“That was about six weeks ago, they had to get their ducks in a row, my contract had to be sorted. I had to agree how much I’m gonna pay for the honour of hosting Big Brother!”

Will spoke of his love for Big Brother and revealed his friendship with Aj.

“We’re mates, we have a good chemistry, good bants,” he said. “We go way back. We used to present shows together on

“We’ve been chased by huge, terrifying, bloodthirsty dogs together, so dealing with some housemates should be a breeze!”

The former Dance Dance Dance frontman also promised that the reboot would feature contestants from ‘all walks of life’.

“It’s gonna be a diverse group of real, normal people, and that’s what makes Big Brother so good,” he said.
