Others simply voiced their delight at having the two shows back on our screens, with messages reading: ‘Love island and big brother starting on June 5th phworrrrr,’ and: ‘My day will be complete on June 5th love island AND big brother starts [sic].’

This series of Big Brother is reported to be combining social politics with reality TV.

The 20-second promo vid says: ‘From every corner of the land, from have-nots to have-lots. From gamer, to game for it. This is the United Kingdom of Big Brother and everybody is welcome.’

As for Love Island, Caroline Flack is said to be playing a bigger role in the upcoming series, and it’s looking like hilarious narrator Ian Sterling is back.

Rumour has it that the contestants include an ex of Michelle Keegan’s, a millionaire lottery winner and a Big Brother star’s daughter.

Very intriguing…

Don’t worry guys, there’s always +1. Who will win the ratings war?
