Channel 5 have today announced that the upcoming series of Big Brother, dubbed ‘Timebomb, will launch at 9pm on Tuesday 12th May on Channel 5, around 3 weeks earlier than the series normally starts.
The show will launch with a two hour launch hosted by Emma Willis, followed by Rylan returning with a new series of Big Brother’s Bit on the Side at 11pm. Afterwards 1 hour of live feed will follow.
This is the first time Big Brother has launched in May since 2007 and it’s the earliest a Summer series has ever began. This means Big Brother will be up against ITV series Britain’s Got Talent in the ratings.
