How To Apply For Next Year's Big Brother Series

Big Brother will finally be returning to UK television with fans eager to get their applications in the hopes of finding fame.

The series is coming back on ITV2 and ITVX after it was axed five years ago in 2018. The long awaited announcement was made in a promotional video during the Love Island finale.

Big Brother has made stars out of its contestants including Alison Hammond, Kate Lawlor, Craig Philips and the late Nikki Grahame and Jade Goody.


Paul Mortimer, director of reality commissioning and acquisitions and controller of ITV2, ITVBe and CITV, said the new show arriving next year will be 'refreshed' and 'contemporary' while containing all the familiar format points.

ITV said in its announcement that the 2023 show will bring back "clever tasks, nail-biting nominations and live evictions". It added the public will play a key role in decided which contestant walks away with "a life changing cash prize". 

How can I apply for the new Big Brother UK series?

People are eager to get their applications with a significant cash prize and fame up for grabs. One Twitter user said she is 'checking every day for when big brother starts accepting applications'.


Another joked: "in 7 months time i’m going to make it to the last stage of big brother applications and then decide not to go on it last minute and make it a personal quirk."

As of yet, contestant applications have not opened. They are expected to be filled out through a similar online form to the Love Island contest.


Applications for previous series were based on a one minute clip shared on social media alongside a submission form on the channel's site. Contestants have had to be over 18 years old in past series.

ITV said in it's announcement: "A new cast of carefully selected housemates, from all walks of life, will take up residence in the world’s most famous reality TV home for up to six weeks, with cameras capturing their every move, and the nation following every twist and turn."
