It’s official: Big Brother will return to TV screens in 2023!
Following the announcement, leading bookmaker Ladbrokes has seen a flurry of bets on potential hosts for the reboot of the iconic reality show.
Rylan Clark, who won series 11 of Celebrity Big Brother, is the bookies current favourite at 6/4 to take the presenter’s reigns.
Former ‘Inbetweeners’ star Emily Atack is second favourite at 5/1, followed by TV funny man Mo Gilligan, who rounds off the top three at 6/1.
Davina McCall, the original and longest-serving Big Brother host is also in the running at 8/1 to land the gig.
Laura Whitmore, who is fresh off the back of another successful season presenting Love Island, is also popular among punters, with Ladbrokes forced to slash her odds to 10/1 from 16/1 following a recent run of bets.
Other Irish names in the mix include popular comic and podcaster, Joanne McNally who can be backed at 25/1, and Jedward, who are currently an outsider bet at 100/1.
