Kate Garraway is also among those to have thrown her support behind Alison. While chatting on Good Morning Britain, Kate said: "We were talking upstairs about our very own daytime queen Alison Hammond, of course. Oh, she’d be great."

Richard Madeley added: "It was [Big Brother] that brought her into the fold wasn’t it," while adding that Davina McCall won’t be returning to the show, explaining: "‘She’s made it quite clear that chapter in her life is over when she didn’t return to the Channel 5 reboot, so I can’t imagine Davina will take that on."

Speaking about the show’s return, director of reality commissioning at ITV2, Paul Mortimer, said: "This refreshed, contemporary new series of Big Brother will contain all the familiar format points that kept viewers engaged and entertained the first time round, but with a brand new look and some additional twists that speak to today’s audience. We’re beyond excited to bring this iconic series to ITV2 and ITVX where it should especially engage with our younger viewers."
