Strictlys AJ Odudu and Will Best confirmed as Big Brother hosts for ITV reboot

AJ Odudu and Will Best have been confirmed as the hosts for the Big Brother reboot.

ITV revealed on Tuesday (April 25) that the pair will be the new hosts of the reality TV show and a companion show when it returns to screens in 2023.

Previously, the likes of Davina McCall and Emma Willis fronted the main show alone, but the commercial broadcaster confirmed the pair will fully share hosting duties.

Together, the pair will preside over the weekly evictions and will host the highly anticipated exit interviews with the housemates.

The network also revealed the duo will be fronting an additional nightly show which will see plenty of debate and topical discussions on all the goings on in the house.

AJ is a firm favourite of British TV, having recently co-hosted the revival of The Big Breakfast as well slots on Comic Relief and backstage segments on The Voice UK and The Voice Kids.

This will be somewhat of a homecoming for the former Strictly Come Dancing contestant as she previously hosted Big Brother's Bit On The Side, alongside Rylan Clark.

And the presenter revealed that she cannot wait to get started as she exclaimed: “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.”

Previous hosts of the main show included Davina McCall, Brian Dowling and Emma Willis, whilst the likes of Alice Levine, Russell Brand and Dermot O'Leary hosted the companion shows over the years.

Will Best is known for fronting shows which included Dance, Dance, Dance for ITV as well as other projects for E4, T4 and BBC Three.

Speaking about his new role, he said: “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.”

Big Brother is set to return with a new set of housemates on ITVX and ITV2 later this year.
