BIG Brother boss Kevin Lygo has dropped the biggest hint yet that iconic narrator Marcus Bentley will return to the show.
It was previously revealed that the hit TV show, last seen on Channel 5 in 2018, was making a comeback next year on ITV2.
Speaking at the Broadcasting Press Guild Kevin revealed he hoped to convince Marcus to be part of the new series.
Marcus was the voice of Big Brother from the very first episode and has previously spoken about moving to ITV.
He said: "I'm not confirmed. It's very early days. I think it sounds like I am. I'm getting calls from [producers] and they're going to keep me updated. But they haven't chosen anything.”
Discussing the show, Kevin added at the event: “People thought that Big Brother would never come back but we were overwhelmed by the response when we announced it.”
