“Rylan is really current and has a huge following, plus his love of Big Brother makes him the ultimate fan. There really is no one better placed to take it on.”
The celebrity version of Big Brother ended in September 2018, with the final ever civilian series starting just days after it finished.
As well as his work on Bit On The Side, Rylan also hosted the Big Brother: Best Shows Ever on E4 with Davina in June 2020.
Rylan has made no secret of his desire to front the show ever since it ended and has regularly called for it to return.
He said in January: “Big Brother was like a child to me – doing Big Brother's Bit on the Side every night became like a lifestyle rather than a job.
“Big Brother changed my life completely – a proper 360 – and I miss it dearly and I just think if it was to come back now, it could come back the same but so different now.”
