    ITV2 have dropped the first brand-new trailer for the Big Brother reboot.

    In the short clip, hosts AJ Odudu and Will Best impersonate narrator Marcus Bentley.

    Looking glam in a red dress, AJ can be heard saying: "8.49pm, AJ and Will are getting ready to go into the Big Brother house."

    Her co-host Will also tries his best to impersonate Marcus and then the pair get interrupted by the voiceover icon himself.

    Marcus says: "AJ and Will should still to presenting."

    The new promo will air on ITV1 on Friday (September 8) during Ruby World Cup 2023.

    The hosting duo will follow in the footsteps of Davina McCall, Emma Willis and Brian Dowling, who all presented the popular programme during its 18-year run on British TV, before it was axed in 2018 amid a ratings slump.

    The programme, which sees housemates live together in a custom-built home for weeks without access to the outside world in a bid to win a cash prize, started in 2000 on Channel 4 before Channel 5 took over in 2011.

    ITV announced in August that the programme would be returning on ITV2 and streaming service ITVX, with its famous house featuring a "contemporary new look".

    It will be the first UK version of the reality show since 2018 when it came to an end on Channel 5 after 19 regular seasons and 22 celebrity series.

    Paul Mortimer, Head of Reality TV and ITV2, recently confirmed that there'll be at least two series of the programme when it returns to the channel this autumn.

    Speaking at Edinbrugh TV Festival this week, Paul said that the house and casting process was nearly complete and he revealed what time the show will be airing on ITV2.

    He said: "It will be a hit. Its looking fantastic. The house looks amazing. We've got a six week run coming up, that's our first foray into it, but it will be back next year of course.

    "We have a 10pm show after the 9pm show – so two hours of Big Brother every evening (then) from 11pm you can go to ITVX to watch the live feed into the small hours."

    When quizzed about the prospect of CBB returning, he said: "We have bought into Big Brother, a lot of us at ITV are BB fans.

    "I can't imagine that we're in it just to do two, six week runs across 2023 and 2024.

    "This is the start of it – so just watch this space."
