The revival of Big Brother will reportedly begin on ITV on Sunday, October 8.

ITV's revival of Big Brother will reportedly begin on Sunday, October 8.

The iconic reality show will be back on TV next month, five years after it was axed by Channel 5, with a new six-week run airing on ITV2 and ITVX.

According to The Sun, the 90-minute launch show will go out on October 8, and as previously reported, it will also be shown on ITV1 for the first time to give the programme the best possible chance of success.

Episodes will then air nightly on ITV2 from Sundays to Fridays at 9pm, with a companion show hosted by AJ Odudu and Will Best following at 10pm and then live streaming from the house via ITVX from 11pm.

The news of the launch date means that the 90-minute finale is likely to air on Friday, November 17.

Ahead of the show returning, ITV has already confirmed another six-week run for next year.
