Keep calm and prepare to tune in Big Brother fans, because some VIP news has been announced this morning that’s sure to delight.

Channel Seven is bringing a celebrity edition of the beloved reality show to our screens aptly dubbing the spin-off Big Brother VIP.

Cue squeals of excitement.

It won’t be long until the series has us glued to our TVs either, with the network revealing its scheduled for “later this year”.

Big Brother VIP will be hosted by Sonia Kruger and feature some of Australia’s best-known celebrities, removed from the world they know and locked away in an all-new Big Brother house,” the announcement reads.

Seven Network Programming Director, Angus Ross, said: “The new season of Big Brother looks fantastic. We can’t wait for Australia to meet this year’s amazing collection of housemates and to start discovering the many surprises and twists we have built into the show.

“With anticipation for the new season building, the time is right to commission Big Brother VIP. The celebrity format is a proven success around the world. It was a hit here in Australia almost two decades ago and we’re looking forward to introducing a whole new generation of celebrities to Big Brother. Let the game begin.”

The big question on everyone’s lips now is who from the who’s who of Australian A-listers will enter the house.

We’ve already seen Married At First Sight grooms Nicolas Jovanovic and, of course, Nasser Sultan, put their hands up commenting on the announcement.

“I’m not a celebrity but would love to do big brother!!” Nic humbly wrote, while Nasser simply commented a series of hand raise emojis.

What we really want to see is a few of the OG Big Brother housemates make an epic return and compete against their fellow reality and TV celebs for the top prize.

Only time will tell if that will come to fruition.
