Just when you thought it was all over, Big Brother is preparing to burst back onto our TV screens.

Sold last year by Channel 4 after a phenomenal run, Big Brother will be on Channel 5 from 18 August, according to The Guardian.

The Guardian reports that the show will kick off with a 90-minute opener, followed by another live show the night after. Final details are still to be agreed, but channel bosses will be crossing fingers that their multi-million pound investment will pay the same dividends in viewers, advertising revenue and sales enjoyed by the programme's previous broadcaster.

Quick Poll

Will you be tuning in to watch the goings on in the Big Brother house, now it's on Channel 5?

Yes - it's still entertaining, and with a new crowd of housemates, I'll be sure to get drawn in.

No - enough already! Past, past, past its sell-by date.
