Big Brother narrator Marcus Bentley has suggested the new series will commence in June, despite popular belief producers were planning a May launch.
Talking to Big Brother fans via his twitter account, Marcus revealed no exact date has been set, but the series will start in June.
If so, the end of the 10-week run would overlap with the London Olympics.
However, in response to fears the games could harm Big Brother’s ratings, Marcus joked:
“BB’s on at 9 or 10 every night. What possible major Olympic action will be on at that time? Indoor pistol shooting?”
He added that he expects there to be an olympic-themed task or two for viewers to look forward too.
When would you prefer the new series to launch?
