BB’S BBIG HOST BATTLE

DAVINA McCall, Rylan Clark, Emily Atack, AJ Odudu and Vick Hope are in the running to host ‘Big Brother’ on ITV2 next year.

The iconic reality show – which aired on Channel 4 for a decade until 2010 with Channel 5 relaunching it the following year until it ended in 2018 – is returning in 2023 on ITV2, and it’s said the ‘Inbetweeners’ actress and BBC Radio 1 DJ are leading the way after holding talks with bosses about the upcoming reboot.

An insider told The Sun newspaper: “Emily and Vick have emerged as the favourites. A huge list was drawn up with a number of big-name stars on it, including [Davina McCall].

“However, there is a feeling bringing in a fresh face would be good for the reboot.”

Davina hosted the original show, and she was part of the initial list alongside Roman Kemp, but bosses are keen to explore new possibilities, with Emily “already part of the ITV2 family” thanks to her work on ‘Celebrity Juice’, while Vick “is a great interviewer” and could bring “in a younger audience”.

The source added: “Roman has also had talks and has made the shortlist. Rylan Clark is another name in the mix but like Davina he has worked on ‘Big Brother’ before.

“If the production team and ITV decide they want a totally fresh start then he won’t make the cut.”

Meanwhile, it’s said discussions with stars on the list are still going on, with a decision still a while away.

The insider said: “The final decision won’t be made for a few more weeks and talks with the stars on the shortlist are ongoing.”
