Alison Hammond is reportedly the top contender for the much-anticipated Big Brother reboot.
August started with a bang when a teaser revealed Big Brother was coming to ITV2 next year.
Fans were instantly sent into a frenzy at the news, and speculation as to who would host the hit reality show is rife (even Jedward volunteered her services for the gig), and it looks like bosses already have one Eye on a certain star.
ITV icon Alison joined the Big Brother house as a housemate in 2002 in the series which was eventually won by Kate Lawler.
But her bubbly personality and infectious laugh made her a household name on British television.
“Alison is top of the list to present Big Brother next year,” a source shared.
“Executives think she’s exactly what the show needs. She’s energetic, funny, relatable and she’s been on the show so she knows it inside out,” the insider added to The Mirror.
An ITV spokesman said Metro.co.uk: ‘Any host suggestions are pure speculation and absolutely no decisions have been made at this early stage.’
Alison – who currently co-hosts This Morning every Friday with Dermot O’Leary – recently revealed she would be hosting the reboot before the official announcement made headlines.
When asked if she would make a good presenter during her appearance on The Late-ish Show with Mo Gilligan, she said: “I think so. You need to change it up a bit.
“We have to send it out into the universe. Let’s make it happen!’
According to the show’s publication: “The action will all take place under the roof of the iconic Big Brother house, which will be given its own contemporary new look, ready for this reimagining of the show.
“Smart assignments, nerve-wracking nominations and live evictions will be back, with the public once again playing a vital role, voting throughout the series and ultimately determining the winner, who walks away with a life-changing cash prize.”
Metro.co.uk has reached out to Alison Hammond’s representatives for comment.
Big Brother returns to ITV2 in 2023.
