ITV’s Big Brother reboot has reportedly been thrown into chaos after it was announced that the series would not return to screens until the fall of next year.

During the Love Island final in August, it was confirmed that the TV favorite would be given a new home on ITV2 and streaming service ITVX.

A source has now told The sun: ‘The restart has been postponed by ITV meaning people’s contracts will be paused or cancelled.

“This is quite normal on television, but it doesn’t make it any less annoying for those who will be affected.

“Some people will be held for another month or so to tie up all the loose ends, but eventually most won’t be back on the project until next spring. It’s all a bit chaotic at the moment.’

MailOnline has contacted ITV for comment.

A date has recently been confirmed for the civilian edition of the programme, which last aired on Channel 5 in 2018.

While it was originally tipped to air in March, the program has been delayed due to the number of entertainment shows airing on ITV in early 2023, such as Winter Love Island and the All Stars edition of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me out of here!.

An ITV spokesperson told MailOnline: “Due to the influx of major reality TV shows on the air in the first half of 2022, we have made the decision to move Big Brother’s broadcast to a more prominent place in the fall.

“This gives our viewers a whole calendar of major reality TV formats all year round.”

MailOnline understands that the show is still airing on ITV2 and ITVX and that the casting for the civilian series has now been extended until the summer.

Big Brother started in 2000 as a social experiment and became a regular part of popular culture.

Ordinary members of the public entered the iconic house and skyrocketed to fame as they were watched 24/7 by the British public. while a celebrity version of the show featuring celebrity roommates also ran in 2000.

The experiment captured the hearts of millions, who were able to tune in to the 24-hour live feed even at night.

It first aired on Channel 4 from 2000 to 2010 and was hosted by Davina McCall, 54, before moving to Channel 5 until 2018, where it was hosted by series two winner Brian Dowling, 43, and later Emma Willis, 46. .

The show featured some iconic moments over the years, with a staggering 3.5 million people voting for Liverpool builder Craig Phillips of Seaforth, Merseyside to win the £70,000 prize in 2000 at the end of the first series.

It averaged 5.8 million viewers per episode in the third season – but the numbers dropped to just 2.9 million per episode in 2009 thanks to competitions inspired by the shows it spawned, such as The Only Way Is Essex.

Earlier this month, it was alleged that Emily Atack, 32, and Vick Hope, 33, are fighting it out to host the show and have been in talks with TV bosses for several weeks, alongside hopeful Roman Kemp, 29.
