Big Brother turns 18 tomorrow!

Rylan Clark-Neal reckons Big Brother fans need to keep a close eye on the news tomorrow because there’s going to be a big announcement about the Channel 5 show.

The Big Brother’s Bit On The Side host has recently been aiming to build up the excitement for the new series of the reality hit.

And he took to Twitter today to stoke the BB fever further by saying: “Eye spy… That tomorrow is @bbuk’s 18th birthday… Big Brother is coming and on his milestone birthday you should keep your EYEs peeled.”

This appears to be an enormous hint that we can expect a big announcement tomorrow.

Fans are desperate to hear what the big news is. While some called for the show to go back to its roots and expressed hopes that this series go “back to basics”.

Rylan has already teased that it’s not long to the show’s return.

He also wrote: "18 years today 10 housemates began to change the future of British television.... 4 days later the first ever episode of @bbuk aired..."

It's thought that the celebrity version will air first, with the traditional version going out later in the summer. Big Brother is normally shown earlier in the summer, but a combination of the World Cup and Love Island probably explains the decision to air it later this year.

All eyes will be on Big Brother and Rylan tomorrow!
